"Throw Me A Rope" as written by and Tunstall....
I want you between me and the feeling I get when I miss you
But everything here's telling me I should be fine
So why is it so, above as below
When I'm missing you every time

I got used to you whispering things to me into the evening
We followed the sun and its colors and left this world
It seems to me that I'm definitely hearing the best that I've heard

So throw me a rope to hold me in place
Show me a clock for counting my days down
'Cause everything's easier when you're beside me
Come back and find me, 'cause I feel alone

And whenever you go, it's like holding my breath under water
I have to admit that I kinda like it when I do
Oh, but I've gotta be unconditionally unafraid
Of my days without you

So throw me a rope to hold me in place
Show me a clock, for counting my days...down.
'Cause everything's easier when you're beside me
Come back and find me
Whenever I'm falling, you're always beside me
Come back and find me
'Cause everything's easier when you're beside me
Come back and find me, 'cause I feel alone

    General CommentWhat does she mean by "above as below"? Is that really what the lyrics are? On Pandora, it says "it bothers below that I'm missing you every time", but that doesn't make sense either.

    General CommentI just discovered this song, and it is beautiful. It really does make me cry.
    It makes me think about my long distance relationship, and the scenarios and things she describes could not be truer.

    General CommentTo me this is about being far away from someone you love, whether it be about a break-up, or a long distance relationship. It's about the longing to see them, no matter how impossible, and the want to be near them even when it's not possible.
