In the crackling cold your velvet voice ventures from your lips.
Stiffly walking words, they seem to hang here.
You place each phrase like puzzle pieces:
planned, precise, perfect.
You play me like a piano or a pastime.

I could be your voice of reason. You can be impossible.

I'm hanging like a spider in suspended time and space.
Your thoughts are all I need to keep me breathing. Dig your feet in deeper. Plant your heels into the ground.
If you could grow roots down, you'd be a tree by now.

I could be your voice of reason. You can be impossible.

But sunshine you shone. Sunshine, you've grown.
I'm just a shadow when you're not here to shine.

Frozen fingers fold inside the pocket of my jeans,
but tighter is the grip you have upon me.
Clasping, clenching, clinging on: I'm tailor made to act upon this
urge to keep you for myself forever.

I could be your voice of reason. You can be impossible.

But sunshine you shone. Sunshine, you've grown.
I'm just a shadow when you're not here to shine.

The man you fell for fell apart.
He let his demons out of the dark.

Let me hear your voice, my one and only.
Let me see your face. Our love: like breathing.
Carry me away. I'm yours completely.
Hide me in your arms. I dont deserve it.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song...if you read the credits on the CD, it was recorded way back in 2003.

    Meaning can be a bit confusing.

    General CommentI think he's singing about someone he loves, someone who was with someone he knew, or was abusive, or something...and he's been waiting for them to break up so patiently, and he has been loved her for a long time...hands frozen in his pockets. also "Plant your heels into the ground. If you could grow roots down, you'd be a tree by now.", i think this is referring to how long the two have been together, and he wants to be the voice of reason, he wants them to break up but she wont listen. the man she fell for fell apart, and since he fell apart he just wants:
    "Let me hear your voice, my one and only.
    Let me see your face. Our love: like breathing.
    Carry me away. I'm yours completely.
    Hide me in your arms. I dont deserve it."
    ...but that last line makes it seem like maybe he was in part responsible for the break up, however it happened.
