The stars are aligned,
But they don't align for us.
Excuse me, for I am the ocean,
And I will starve for you.
Will you know how to stay brave?
Such fragile moments we share...

You are my everything,
Even with nothing to say.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful, one of my favorites actually :)

    and it's obviously about a boy and a girl who can't be together, but they'd do whatever to achieve their goal.

    I don't understand the ocean metaphor though.

    General CommentThis song is so powerful.
    I don't even know how to decipher this song.. it just hits hard and I like it.
    "You are my everything even with nothing to say."
    True love squished into a line.

    General Commentthe song i can most relate to off the album... basically sums up an entire relationship i had.

    hearing it for the first time i was speechless... there is not one line that i can't find meaning for myself in.

    General CommentI think it's about the relationship not being right:

    "but they don't align for us"
    *fragile moments"

    but they try to make it work regardless because of the way they feel about eachother:

    "You are my everything"

    General CommentThe part where he says, "Excuse me for I am the ocean" definitely means he's upset, he's crying even. Spouting up emotions because he loves this girl, but he knows it's not right. She is his everything, even though there is nothing to say.
