i've walked in time with past regrets
remembered some forgot the rest
i cannot hold the weight alone
you can't let go of what you know
as beautiful as it was then
the love still moving through my hands
it collapses and builds itself into something
you may never understand

we are the only sky high of the city
that we want to call out hope
but we're all fragile lovers and tragedies
we have lost all hope
we have lost it all tonight

now they can tell our hearts are heavy
you can tell it's in our voice
this will give them all of reason now
and we wont a choice
as hopeless as it may have been
the love still moving through my hands
i am building and making a beautiful thing
that will never be made again

we are the only sky high of the city
that we want to call out hope
but we're all fragile lovers and tragedies
we have lost all hope
we have lost it all tonight

they are the lovers dancing
so motionless alone
they are the lovers dancing
so hopeless and alone

    General CommentI have the band's whole EP, and dear lordy this song's amazing; lyrically it's no different (I think) but the remix of this song is incredible.

    General CommentI just listened to this song today, and I love it!!! It's so addicting. :]
    This band should be something big. I wanna listen to the remix still. Otherwise, I found the other five songs. ^^

    General Comment...i think it's:
    "we are the only sky-high of this city
    that we want to call our home"
    i just thought about that. ^^

    General CommentActually, it sounds more like:
    "We are the only skyline of this city"
    Plus, sky-high doesn't really make much sense in that scenario

    My InterpretationI guess I can see how "skyline" fits... but is it saying that they are the only beautiful thing in that grim situation (ie this city that we want to call our home). Personally, I interpret it as showing the world that there can be love and that the rest of society just puts it down. Or something along those lines.

    I am TOO obsessed with this song. I swear.

    Song MeaningI love this song. I dont think it's just about love, although that's part of it. It's a metaphor for life and going through the motions of everyday life.

    My OpinionI just feel the incredible rush through my body when the chords hits in. I find the melody the most fantastic, also the longtoned vocals throughout the chords.
