She is like the water where I clean my baby
Floating from the front into the back to keep me
warm enough to cover me from getting chilly
Cool enough to hide me from the heat

She is like a splinter that I caught in my toe
running from the dog that chases me
sharp enough to teach a lesson that I must learn
soft enough to never make me bleed


And I will find you there
And I will mend your heart
And I will find you there
And I will mend your heart


She is like a cigarette inside an ashtray
Nothing but a fire sets her free
Filling up my lungs until my body needs her
holding on so I can never breathe

She is like a gravestone sitting in a church yard
Crooked from the ground in which she sleeps
Whispering our name until I go to meet her
Underneath the ground she finds her peace


And I will find you there
And I will mend your heart
And I will find you there
And I will mend... your heart

    My InterpretationI think that this could possibly be about someone he loves that passed away. To me it's most evident in the lines "Nothing but a fire sets her free" and when he proceeds to say "Underneath the ground she finds her peace".

    When he speaks of fire it could mean that she's cremated?

    And one day he will "find (her) there" in heaven?

    I'm not entirely sure that's just my interpretation of it.

    My Interpretationi think this song is the most endearing thing that i have read in a while.

    how it doesn't matter to him how broken she is, he just wants to make her happy.
    he wants to be the person that restores her faith in people, in relationships.

    it's a beautiful song.
