I start to melt
With your arms, round my waist
And your mouth, starts to spell
And the words, telling me, to fade

I start to fade
With her arms, round my waist
And he mouth, starts to spell
And the words, telling me, to stay

I start to melt
With my arms, round your waist
And my mouth, starts to spell
And the words, saying its, OK

    General Comment:first comment! this is probably my favorite song on writer's block, i like it better than young folks. i think it's about that feeling when you're falling in love with someone and just being speechless and happy every time you're with them. or it seems like a comforting song- "words saying it's ok."

    My Interpretation:This song is so gorgeous. I think it's about leaving one relationship and getting into another. Maybe "you" is a woman he is having an affair with. She is telling him to "fade" out of the life of the woman he is cheating on. He starts to "fade" and she tells him to "stay", then "you" is back there comforting him: "its, ok".

    General Comment:this song is beautiful.
    to me it's about the magic in the simplicity of being close to the person you love
    and how nothing else matters, cause it's going to be okay, no matter what.

    General Comment:John brought an interesting take on it, with the affair.

    I love the simplicity of this as well, it's so concisely put but it still has such great impact.
    To me it follows the ebb and flow of a relationship with each stanza correlating to a different emotions/events within the relationship.

    There are TWO parts to this that lead me to two conclusions. ONE, based off of John's interpretation that he has a separate affair that he leaves to remain in love with this girl. The SECOND is based off the last line 'And the words, saying it's OK' that made me think that she apologized for telling him to leave her.

    Here's the interpretation for conclusion 1:

    1st Stanza:
    He's infatuated with the relationship(starts to melt), and she returns those feelings since her arms are around his waist. When she tells him to fade, at first I thought she was trying to distance him from her, but I'm leaning toward John's interpretation that she wants him to fade from someone/something else. If her arms weren't around his waist, it would make more sense that she'd be telling him to fade away from her in an attempt to end the relationship.

    2nd Stanza:
    To her request, he 'fades' away from someone/something and her arms remain around his waist signaling that their relationship is still going strong. To reinforce this, she tells him to stay, which at this point actually seems redundant, but what can you do songs gotta follow a pattern.

    3rd Stanza:
    He stays engrossed in the relationship and 'starts to melt' again. This time his arms are around her waist because he has his full attention on her now. Since she had asked him to leave someone/something for her, he comforts her and reminds her 'it's ok'.

    Interpretation for Conclusion 2:

    Stanza 1:
    He's in love with her(starts to melt) but she's got her arms around his waist while she tells him to distance himself from her and take things slow(telling me to fade)

    Stanza 2:
    He obliges and 'fades' away but she's still holding on. She changes her mind and tells him to stay in the relationship.

    Stanza 3:
    His love remains and she feels remorseful having asked for some space but he comforts her and tells her 'it's ok', they're still together.

    Beautiful song and touching lyrics.
