Watching all the quiet faces I don't understand
I believe we can be rescued by better things than man
And everyone would be so sorry I don't even know
I been watching all my time go to waste

And you never thought you'd be so slow
First one to the steps when I say go
Any body but my own
Waiting on the lines that we define

Listen Up! I never knew I'd ever be so sad
I've been touched in places by very scary hands
If anyone should ask me I'll tell them I don't know
I've been leaving all my clues like my footprints in the snow

And you never thought you'd be so slow
First one to the gate when I say go
And you need to hold your own
Waiting on the lines that we divide

All the world is cold
Ice to snow to sun
Look at what is left
It's just me
And I've been waiting all alone

Watching all the quiet faces I can understand
Why we need to be rescued by better things than man

And you never thought you'd be so slow
First one to the steps when I say go
Any body but my own
Waiting on the lines that we define

Waiting for the one I love
I've been forgetting you

    General Commenteh.. im not sure, but this is my guess from first glance:

    "Waiting for the one I love
    I've been forgetting you "

    she just broke up with somebody, because he turned out to be "the wrong one".

    "If anyone should ask me I'll tell them I don't know
    I've been leaving all my clues like my footprints in the snow"

    she can't believe she's so torn up about it and wants comfort, but she's not going to openly admit it...
    she just wants somebody to pick up on her subtle cues.

    "Watching all the quiet faces I can understand
    Why we need to be rescued by better things than man"

    reigious help? "better than man"? you know?

    idk. its my weak guess. but i LOVE this song.
    im prolly relating it to that because thats how i feel. haha.
    but i guess music is supposed to be interpreted into something you can hold on to. make something so personal to them personal to YOU. :]
