Give me back my album
The shapes change though we're always the same
Season bleeds on season
Somewhere you slip
That is the way, that is the way

What would I do without you
A waste of time after all that we took
Don't make me a chapter
I want to be
The whole of the book, whole of the book

No one's going anywhere
If we did, we'd only tear
Keep on rolling over

    General CommentI think the second verse pretty much tells the whole story.
    "Don't make me a chapter/I want to be the whole of the book." She doesn't want to be just a moment or a passing relationship with the guy. She wants to be involved with him till the end.

    Other than that, I'm not completely sure about the first verse. Maybe the first line is something she was saying to her boyfriend or whoever, literally, and it got her thinking figuratively about life.

    The last verse, I think, is just her saying she doesn't want anything to happen between them.

    General Commenti think the first verse is...about how they are both constant, no matter the shape, proof of this is in the photo album she wants back...there's no point in him keeping it because the pictures all end up the same...because of how long they have been together and how long they will be.
    i think the "somewhere you slip, that is the way" part is...about how something goes wrong, that's when you realise how much you need each other.

    but i think it's more to do with the photo album than you first realise...the line "a waste of time after all that we took" could be about the photos they took. dont make her a chapter in the photo album, she wants the entire album to be with her.
    and in the third verse "if we did we'd only tear" like a photograph being ripped
