I will always carry
the words of your
prediction with me

Even though they
harbour some grave
obscurity
They haunt me like some willows do.

And nothing has revealed itself to me
The half of the world that I can see
Is just a memory.

And I will be here
To respond so clear
to that word,
that sound,
that I have found
in me, in you,
in us....

As long as you can have the moon
let me have the dust.
Somebody comes along
you continue to rust.
Everyone will do you wrong
'til you learn how to trust,
along the way......

If one of us should fall, should fall
If one of us should fall, should fall....

I will always carry
the wounds of your
addiction with me

Even though they
harbour some grave
obscurity
They haunt me like some willows do.

But something has revealed itself to me
The half of the world that I can see
Is falling to its knees.

And I will be here
To respond so clear
to that word,
that sound,
that I have found
in me, in you,
in us......

As long as you can have the moon
let me have the sky.
Somebody comes along
you continue to cry.
I'll be the camera,
you, the discernible eye.
Together we can climb so high
so high, but.....

If one of us should fall, should fall
If one of us should fall, should fall
carry each other

    General CommentI don't really know what the whole song means but I do know that this version is from the album ALIVEACOUSTIC and the version from EISENHOWER doesn't have the second verse about addiction.
    I think primarily the song is about the singer (which may or may not actually be Brad Barr) who supports a female who doesn't open up (someone comes along you continue to rust), and expects it back.

    Whether or not he gets the support back is up for discussion.

    The version on EISENHOWER is better to me because there is a slight note change from Dust to Rust and in the version on ALIVEACOUSTIC the note for both words is the same. Listen to it, it is subtle but there.

    Either version is great!

    General Commentwonderful song, its a song about relationships and being there unconditionally for the one's you love. could be a romantic love or a familial or friendly love, but love nonetheless. just beautiful.
