Although there is now hope, embers of sadness still glow.
Something hasn't quite flown.
But I know you're there to catch me now.

All eternal things, the moon, the sea, the turning leaves, speak to something within.
And you, ease the longing too.
My reason. My sunlight. My lifeline.

All eternal things and you, how this frightened heart they soothe.
You and the seasons will pull me through.
Will calm and comfort, and always be beautiful.
You and the seasons will pull me through.

I know you won't let go of the string.
I know you won't let this kite be taken by the wind.

All eternal things and you, how this frightened heart they soothe.
You and the seasons will pull me through.
Will calm and comfort, and always be beautiful.
You and the seasons will pull me through.

    My InterpretationSounds like a paean for an old love ("embers of sadness still glow, something hasn't quite flown" - Annemari perhaps?) as the singer leaves it behind for a new love (Beth?). Slowly, his new love is becoming the rock his world is built upon ("I know you won't let go of the string"). His new love understands his previous feelings. His hurt. His now receding life. No jealousy, no anger. Simply compassion and understanding. Too beautiful for this world.

    General CommentLove the tune as well, but have to mention that it comes directly from an apparent love of the mid-period music of The Cure. In fact, it's essentially a cross between All Cats are Grey (the initial drum pattern and sound, and distant keyboards) from 'Faith' (1981) and The Figurehead (drums again plus the mournful guitar figure that circles in and out) from 'Pornography" (1982). It basically takes a middle ground between the more aggressive doom (and drumming) of The Figurehead and the detachment of All Cats. Love TBS, but this flows so directly from these 2 and other similar period Cure (there are at least 4-5 other elements one could point to), that this must be considered an obvious homage, or what some may view as a rip-off. (YouTube provides an easy comparison) I prefer to consider it the former, not the latter, but everyone can form their own opinion.
