Cold as stone
Like unpolished diamonds
Your ice-blue eyes
Silently watching me
You're an iceberg
An arctic midnight
I sail Titanic
Drawn to the negative light

And I must be broken
So no words are spoken
One more heart is frozen
In this January snow

Skating, waiting
For your touch
Hypnotizing
Like the glitter of morning

And I must be broken
So no words are spoken
One more heart is frozen
In this January snow

And if I could melt you, we'd arise
Like steam from the rooftops
To breathless Septembers
To sun-drenched Julys

But I must be broken
So no words are spoken
One more heart is frozen
In the January snow
Oh
Yes I have been chosen
And I will be broken
So my love is frozen
In this January snow
Oh

    General CommentI think this is about a woman whose ex has become cold and shut off to her. She still wants to talk about it, thinks the relationship could still work, but they won't let her. She's still drawn to them like the Titanic to the negative light of the iceberg it collapsed with.

    "And I must be broken,
    So no words are spoken,
    One more heart is frozen,
    In this January snow,"

    Her ex pretty much leaves her be, not responding to her attempts to communicate or so, until she is broken, so no more words are spoken and they can leave it all behind in spite of what she wants.

    "And if I could melt you, we'd arise,
    Like steam from the rooftops,
    To breathless Septembers,
    To sun-drenched Julys,"

    This pretty much shows how she still has faith in the relationship.

    Now, I interpreted this as being about a romantical relationship, because when mine ended this song spoke to me about it. It could also be about another kind of relationship, possibly, maybe one that would better explain the "yes I have been chosen" line (but I do think that one's just about it being fate or so.) However,

    "Skating, waiting,
    For your touch,
    Hypnotizing,
    Like the glitter of morning,"

    ...sounds pretty romantic/passionate to me.

    Anyway, just my interpretation. I really do love this song
