Soul map on the wall might've
Listened to the children sing
Sycamore down and the
Ground was glistening

But you were never good
You were never good

What might you say if
You could tell me anything
Love saves the day
Love may say everything

Just one thing at a time
One thing at a time
Now my love

I'm just a cloud
I'm not proud of how I've
Been dealing with things

No one's allowed
Into my world
To see how I'm feeling

And if this isn't love
What is love
If this isn't love?

'Cause soul map on the wall might've
Listened to the children sing
Sycamore down and the
Ground was glistening

But you were never good
You were never good
At anything at all

    General CommentI love this song. Now I'm no expert but I think think it about a love that isn't necessarily easy. The first part could be about her lover not having a great childhood. They never had someone to talk to, they could expression themselves because nobody care. The map of their soul started changing due to the fact they had to hid things inside. They acted out and did bad things because of this. She wants them to tell her what they've done so that they can love freely but she won't tell them about her. She feels bad she can't open up when she expects them to. The sycamore tree in some aspect represent protection. Her their (her lover) protection is falling and so is hers. They can actually start loving each other without walls (the ground is glistening). Finally I think it's about this person not being good at loving and treating her badly after she took down her walls.

    General Commentmaybe its about a guy who treated her badly? im not really sure. and the "'Cause soul map on the wall might've Listened to the children sing Sycamore down and the Ground was glistening" part confuses me. lovely song though, and simple and beautiful on guitar.

    the first "glistening" should be listening.
