She has a fear of heights
The way you feel when you're leaving on your first flight
She's like a sinking stone
Fading from the surface, but we are never alone
She's on a tightrope
Losing balance yet something's pulling her towards hope
I want to run to her
But I've already played that card, so I will fight the urge

Eyes closed, fingers crossed
Praying that she's lost

You'll never know what's around the bend
"Avoid the unknown" is ringing in your head

She has a fear of love
Accepting everything but what really dreamed of
She keeps her heart locked
No she won't answer even though she hears a knock
But love is at the door
And after all isn't that what we are here for
I want to run to her
But I've already tried, for there is only one cure

While you rest inside your regret
The sun rises and sets again
You're in your way
That's why you'll always be the same

    General Commentto me this song is about a girl who is afraid of takeing chances. There is a guy who really likes this girl but she is afraid of what might happen-she doesnt want to be hurt. The guy sees that she is lost and confused but he trys to keep himself from reaching out to her again because he has tried that before and she pushed him away.

    i think there is a little bit more to it than that but i pulled that general idea out since i can relate.

    General CommentIt's a girl, that wants the guy, but she's scared he's not the one. She's terrified, that something better is 'around the bend'. Its years later, and time is bringing her back to this same guy. He's telling her to avoid the "unknown" (of some better expectation) that's ringing inside her head. However, she just keeps locking up her heart to his advances, even though she hears love knocking. And he tries to reason with her, don't live in your regret and just watch the sun rise and set again, you should be with me.
    But she can't realize, that she has no one, because she's in her own way of having true love with this guy.

    Anyways, that's my interpretation at least, as I'm living this scenario out right now in my own life.
