"Throw It All Away" as written by Brandi M. Carlile and Timothy Jay Hanseroth....
When you're near me I have no fear
When I'm untrue you see right through me
You know me as deep as the sea goes
Calm my head whenever the storm blows

When the stars, and the moon
And the sky, fall through

I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow
Deep as the sea goes, all I know is
I would throw it all away...away

In my restless hour I'm holding
The words you say that lay my soul to sleep
I dream of buildings that burn
The sky turns black I toss and turn

When the stars, and the moon
And the sky, fall through

I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow
Deep as the sea goes, all I know is
I would throw it all away, away

This love branches out like an oak tree
Reach for the sky and roots to the sea
So when you're shaken down and broken
Find some peace of mind in knowing

I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow
Deep as the sea goes, all I know is
I would throw it all away, away

    General CommentI think what she is saying is that sometimes sure she feels empty maybe even alone. But when she thinks about all that she has (maybe a special someone)she can simple "throw it all away" possibly meaning her emptiness or problems.anyways ive seen her as the opening act for two concerts. she is FABULOUS!!!

    General CommentThis song is so good. Another Grey's anatomy song woo hoo! It seems like she doesn't need anything because she has someone there for her all the time. Sweet :)

    General Commenti think it's

    'Find some peace of mind in knowing'
    not
    'Find your piece of my mind in knowing'

    or at least it sounds that way to me.

    I love this song though
    "This love branches out like an oak tree
    Reach for the sky and roots to the sea"

    amazing XD

    General CommentI can't stop thinking about this song, as it reminds me of a girl who I can't stop thinking about: she understands me in every way possible and I'd throw it all away just to be with her. I'd "fine your (my) piece of mind in knowing" if she feels the same way. It's such a beautiful song with amazing imagery. I love her voice, too.

    Song MeaningThis is a love song. "Throw it all away" refers to how she would throw everything away, even when she has nothing, when she is hollow, for this person with whom she shares some sort of relationship with. I can assume it's a strong relationship, because she likens their love to the roots and branches of an oak, a tree that is strong and does not easily fall. My favorite part of this song:

    "In my restless hour I'm holding the words you say that lay my soul to sleep. I dream of buildings that burn. The sky turns black, I toss and turn. When the stars and the moon and the sky fall through, I'd throw them all away..."

    She throws away the fears that haunt her. Whoever she is in love with, their words allow her to let go of the worries that keep her awake. Her feelings are as deep as the sea goes for this person. A truly beautiful song.
