"kirby" as written by and Clay Choi....
Trembling knees. I always dream about a deadly earthquake
That shakes the state. Smoke and flames always make it oh
So hard to speak and see. I can't escape. Wait for me.

I'm so afraid, but you always seem so secure, and oh so sure.
I'm so sorry, but everything I keep close to me runs away.
It's such a shame. I'll hide amongst the trees, and breathe so quietly until the sun comes out.

Until the morning comes. So many things scare me,
Like when shadows dance amongst the trees.

I've got the skin and bones to stand and say so many
Things to you. Oh but I lack the guts to hold my weight and
Keep my blood so calm.

Trembling knees. I always dream about a deadly earthquake
That shakes the state. Smoke and flames always make it oh
So hard to speak and see. I can't escape.
I'll hide amongst the trees, and breathe so quietly until the sun comes out.

Until the morning comes. So many things scare me,
Like when shadows dance amongst the trees.

And when the ground all breaks, I'll just run away.
I'm sorry I still haven't changed.
I'll trade my veins for your nerves.
Maybe then I'll stay strong.

    General Commentmaybe i'm just interpreting this wrong because of the way im feeling right now

    i think this song is about a person who's pessimistic about love. their significant other cares alot about them but they're afraid to let them because they're scared of getting hurt("Wait for me/I’m so afraid/But you always seem so secure/And oh so sure"). they've probably been hurt alot of times before ("But everything I keep close to me runs away/It’s such a shame").

    that's just my perspective. and itf thats not what it means, then oh well. it means how i feel right now, hah.

    General Commenti'm so happy that these lyrics were finally approved!
    this song is sosososo amazing
    the different voice sounds are breathtaking, i love it.

    i think the meaning behind it is that this person is afraid to confront someone about something that has been bothering about them for fear of making them angry [[ i always dream about a deadly earthquake that shakes the state .. always makes it oh so hard to speak and see i can't escape ]] and he later says that this person wants him to confront them about it, but he can't. [[ wait for me, i'm so afraid .. i'm sorry i still haven't changed ]]

    any thoughts?

    General CommentYeah, I don't get it either Jonnyxx. As soon as I saw the name I thought of the cute little Nintendo character. I love this song! I can relate to it a lot but why is it called "Kirby". Somebody else said it was a code name. Why?

    General Commentdefinitely,
    i've always wondered about the song titles
    like, tennis court soundtrack?
    haha, but this is one of my favorite songs

    i think the song is about someone scared of telling somone something, but they really want to tell them,

    it must be something really special ^_^

    General CommentI think....the dude really likes the girl.
    He wants to tell her, but he's really nervous and maybe even
    afraid of comittment because of things that have happened
    before (I'm so sorry, but everything i keep close to me runs away)
    so maybe past failed relationships make him scared of comittment.
    so he decides to just keep it to himself, not let anyone know
    about it (i'll hide amongst the trees) and then when she wants
    to tell him something, like confess her feelings for him too??
    (And when the grouind all breaks) he's still so scared of getting
    into a serious relationship and getting hurt again he'll just
    run away from it (i'll just run away. im sorry i still havent changed)
    haha. idk if its right. but its kinda how i feel sometimes lol.
