"Out There On The Ice" as written by and Dan Whitford....
Yes, no, maybe is all I need to hear from you
If things go crazy, she's lost herself and lost to you
Now that nothings spoken, she's out there on the ice again
She's breaking down slowly, colliding as she holds your hand

You don't know what to do
There's a guy you know, who'll be there for you
You don't know what to do
There's a guy you know, who'll be there for you

Yes, no, maybe is all I need to hear from you
If things go crazy, she's lost herself and lost to you
Now that nothings spoken, she's out there on the ice again
She's take me down slowly, she's holding on to what she can

You don't know what to do
There's a guy you know, who'll be there for you
You don't know what to do
There's a guy you know, who'll be there for you
You don't know what to do
There's a guy you know, who'll be there for you
You don't know what to do
There's a guy you know, who'll be there for you

If that's what it takes, then don't let it tear us apart
Even if it breaks your heart
If that's what it takes, then don't let it tear us apart
Even if it breaks your heart

Even if it breaks your heart
Even if it breaks your heart

    General CommentThis is a good song and i got an idea of what its about. i think its a guy and girl in a relationship and the girl isn't very commited. I think they argue (things go crazy, nothing spoken) and she takes advantage of it by going out and doing petty singles activities (out there on the ice is kinda like saying walking on thin ice) such as a bars and clubs or seeing an exboyfriend during that cooling off period. Its tearing him up (take me down slowly) cuz any second the metaphorical ice could break but shes "holding on to what she can" with him and thats why hes the guy there for her when she decides to calm down. in the end i think its actually a warning from him that if she keeps it up he will leave her even if it breaks her heart.

    General Commentuhhh would i thinking too literally if i said i thought this song is about ice addiction?

    "yes, no, maybe is all i need to hear from you
    if things go crazy, she's lost herself and lost to you" - the indecisive, scattered brain of an addict

    "she's breaking down slowly, colliding as she holds your hand" - succumbing to the high

    "there's a guy you know, who'll be there for you" - dealer

    "if that's what it takes, then don't let it tear us apart
    even if it breaks your heart" - she needs to go to rehab, boy still loves girl rah rah rah

    just pointing out what seems kind of obvious to me


    and while i'm here...i love cut copy

    General CommentLol ice addiction. Sorry, but I seriously doubt it. Why do all songs have to somehow be about drugs? :/

    Anyway, this holds a different meaning to me. I asked out my crush last year ("yes, no, maybe, is all I need to hear from you") and he actually didn't even respond ("now that nothing's spoken, she's out there on the ice again")... but it's hard to say what the rest means.

    I actually think what Bobaloots has written is probably a more accurate representation but I like to stick to my own little personal meanings when I can :)

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who loves this girl, but the girl is already in a relationship with another guy. This other guy doesn't treat her right (if things go crazy, she's lost herself and lost to you) e.g. she is depending on the other guy and if he is getting violent then "she's breaking down slowly" and so will never have the confidence to leave the abusive guy for the other guy who really loves her. She won't talk about the problems though even though the guy who loves her knows what is happening and by keeping silent she's out there on the ice (in a very bad situation).
    Just a thought?
