To make thee mine
I cast a net as wide as I am free
Line by line
Erase the schemes that I have drawn to be
There's no fear anymore
Crystalline the truth, assumes the breeze
There's no fear anymore
Burn the bridge outside

If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you
If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you

If I can't live without you
I feel alone walking home All by myself
I've never chased a brighter sun than you'll become

I mistook you for a trust
Invocations I must dust off
Fresh bouquets to playfully collect

Even though you've seen the show
I've saved the best for last
A cannonball shot stern to bow
To warn the crowd
I fall in love from my guts
My arms are twined to switch
And in repose, a silent rose
Burns the bridge outside

If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you
If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you
If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you

To make thee mine
I call upon the wisdom of my age
Blow by blow
Chase the bees of the death song's wings
There's no crying anymore
Crystalline, the bridges burn outside
Stitches will all come undone

If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you
What comes must all come out at once
Of us

If I'm gonna live
If I'm gonna live
Without you
I've never chased a brighter sun than you'll become
What comes will all, the breaking dawn
But I'm on its side

    General Comment:"I've never chased a brighter sun than you'll become"

    that line reminds me of Black by Pearl Jam. (I know some day you'll have a beutiful life i hope you'll be a sun in somebody elses sky, but why, why why, can't it be mine)

    I like this song a lot. I like Rose March more, but i heard this live and it really bought the song to life.

    I think its about realising you may need to let go of some people who bring you down and saying i will try to make it on my own. He's more or less saying, i'll have to live without you but i hope you don't feel bad about it and i still like you.

    perhaps it has something to do with the divided fan base. either way, pumpkins rule and Billy and Jimmy are musical geniuses.

    My Interpretation:LOVE this song, came to it kinda late too.

    Anyway, I think it's about leaving a stale relationship for a new one and rediscovering yourself and how strong you are in the process. Billy Corgan, writes some of THE best lyrics ever; truly a favorite of mine!
