A moment in time, despair and fear
Nothing's ahead you are right here
Near is the pain tragedy changing you dear
Catastrophe, everything's gone
Nothing today was agreed upon
You had no choice as you watched the curtains be drawn

Hands in the air, prayers and hymns
Everyone's here it's time to begin
All that was there and what might have been
Is no longer here it's time to begin
Yearning

The hour is late it's almost done
Without an end we can't go on
As dark as it seems soon you will see the day's sun
Perchance to dream there is the rub
Permanent sleep, nice dreams will come
Try to have faith to carry you on as you run

Hands in the air, prayers and hymns
Everyone's here it's time to begin
All that was there and what might have been
Is no longer here it's time to begin
Yearning, Yearning

Yearning and hurting, learning
Waiting for will it will take you taking all your time
Waiting for will it will take you taking all your time
Yearning

Hands in the air, prayers and hymns
Everyone's here it's time to begin
All that was there and what might have been
Is no longer here it's time to begin
Yearning, Yearning
Yearning, Yearning

    General Commentok ok ok you did a lame job of getting to the roots of this song, you did a good job at saying "yeah the trews are great"

    AWESOME WELL DONE I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT.


    yearning is about wanting something, more than someone, it could be about wanting someone in a ceratin situation, like when everyone is against you but you can feel and practically see what you want, and it is about being alone and secluded

    "try to have faith to carry you on as you run" it is about a journey of somekind.

    sorry miss kate, i didn't mean to offend.

    General Commentthose were good attempts and i could see why you guys would think that, but at one of their shows i attended colin (the singer) said that he wrote this song about the Tsunami.

    Song MeaningThis song is about death.

    The first verse tells us that the cause of death was some sort of catastrophe - like the tsunami.

    The second verse is about the subject of the song being on death's door and thinking about what will come in the afterlife.

    The choruses are about the funeral and the people that are left behind. The "yearning" refers to those that are left behind missing their deceased loved one and dealing with the loss.
