you want more space
i want less distance
you want more words
I want less noise
you speak in rhythms
I dream in wishes
we've got nowhere left to hide

you see the sun
I see the burning
you see good things in everyone

The closer my heart is
the further my head is from you
The more that I need you
the less I can see what to do

you want my hand
I want the darkness
you want the warmth
I want the cold
you walk ahead
I walk in circles
we've got nowhere left to go

you see the sun
I see the burning
you see good things in everyone

The closer my heart is
the further my head is from you
The more that I need you
the less I can see what to do

    General CommentI think that she realizes that she doesn't have anything left in common with him. She still wants to be with him, but logic kicks in. She can't be with someone she doesn't see a future with.

    He's optimistic. She's pessimistic.

    General CommentI really like this song,
    and I agrere with da_QTchick. She's pessimistic and wants to be with him but it's not going anywhere.
    "You walk ahead, I walk in circles"
    She's just going around and around and she realises that the closer her heart gets to him, the less logic is in her head.
