"Inch" as written by and Charlotte Martin....
Inch

I keep you down inside my heart
We watch the whole world fall apart
And melt into an ether sea

You failed to take me by the hand
I failed to make you understand
That all I wanted was your hands
On me

I'm captured in your eye
Am I an inch away from heaven?
And there's too many sad goodbyes
Am I an inch away from heaven?
And just a little higher now
Am I an inch away from heaven?
Am I an inch away from heaven?

The walls have ears
The stones have names
We gave in all our silly games
I knew I'd never let you go

And there is no one I can blame
Because your heart remained the same
I swear I'll never let you go

I'm captured in your eye
Am I an inch away from heaven?
And there's too many sad goodbyes
Am I an inch away from heaven?
And just a little higher now
'Cause every day I die for this
Am I an inch away from heaven?

Am I to be tortured
And not be the victim
All twisted up by my own pride
Am I to be stranded
Just waving my arms in the air
While you're trying to lie

I'm captured in your eye
Am I an inch away from heaven?
And there's too many sad goodbyes
Am I an inch away from heaven?
And just a little higher now
'Cause we're so close and far from this
Am I an inch away from heaven?

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship she had where she wouldn't let the guy get too close. She's realized that it is her fault it didn't work because "his heart remained the same" throughout the whole thing and it was her who wouldn't change.
