I'm surrounded by walls
They grow closer when I sleep
And the ceiling falls
When I try to stand up on my feet

I'm looking for doors
But they disappear when I breathe
There are plenty of floors
But they can't hold me
How hard can it be?

Must all sweet things go sour?
Do all adventures have an end?
Every waking hour
I long to bring him back again

In a crowded room
I make-believe I'm somewhere bound
Wear my best perfume
Fooling everyone around
I'm not what I seem

I'm as under a spell
Watching and no-one can tell
Had I only known
That these walls were just my own

    General CommentShe's complaining about being distant and locked away from everything, not having a place. She's closed in by walls, all her options disappear (doors) and yet she can't stay grounded as well (floors/but they can't hold me).

    She then goes on about all good things coming to an end, maybe she's talking about a relationship there? (I long to bring him back again)

    So she puts on a kind of fake persona to hide how she feels about this, nobody really understands where she's at right now (fooling everyone around/I'm not what I seem) - but, inevitably, it's revealed that her distance from others is caused only by herself, as in 'these walls were just my own'.

    General CommentOn another note, this song is surprisingly close to Miyuki/Eve's situation in Ai Yazawa's manga 'Kagen no Tsuki'. >_>
