Look in these eyes
We know each other like our own skin and bones
We know the scars,
how they got where they are, in places no one else knows.

If you call this love, then show me some feeling
and if it all goes numb, just keep on breathing.

I'll watch you falling from me
When you hit the ground, maybe you'll see
The only way to fall is down
I'll be up in the stars
but I'll be anywhere you are
just say you need me and I'll come down

We'll never know, We'll never ever know if you just let it go

If it comes undone, then tie up your loose ends.
when the colors run, then all of the shapes blend.
Oh, you know there's still a ways to go, so don't start retreating
No, you just gotta take it slow
When you're lost and all out of breath just call and I'll come running baby

I'll watch you falling from me
When you hit the ground maybe you'll see
The only way to fall is down
and I'll be up in the stars
but I'll be anywhere you are
just say you need me and I'll come down

The days go by...

    My InterpretationI signed up to this site just to comment on this song because it speaks to me so much at this juncture of my life. The reason I never signed up before is because I feel song lyrics should be able to be interpreted by the listener to whatever they feel. That's the beauty of music. But anyway here is how I see this song.

    "Look in these eyes
    We know each other like our own skin and bones
    We know the scars,
    how they got where they are, in places no one else knows."

    this is self explanatory, it's just about that special person in your life, your very best friend, in my case of the opposite sex, who just knows you like no one else. They can see through the b.s. and just know how your feeling.

    "If you call this love, then show me some feeling
    and if it all goes numb, just keep on breathing."

    Obviously you love your best friend, sometimes you might feel they are distant, and when you come to depend on them to make you feel better, sometimes you just want to heart them say they care, their opinion is the only one that matters. Maybe something is going on in their life to cause some lack of emotion, so you just have to encourage them to push on.

    "I'll watch you falling from me
    When you hit the ground, maybe you'll see
    The only way to fall is down
    I'll be up in the stars
    but I'll be anywhere you are
    just say you need me and I'll come down"

    This is where my case is a little different, the feelings we have for each other are so real, it just feels like we are emotional soulmates. But given that we both have exes that have yet to move on, we are in no place to date. She was way stronger with adhering to that than me, but still we got caught up in our future. She felt it destroyed the friendship and we are just not the same, the distance is shredding my soul. But as it says, I just have to watch her fall from me, I can't stop her, and hopefully when she hits the inevitable bottom she will remember what we are and can be again, best friends. Because I will always be watching over her and if she ever uttered my name Id drop everything and bolt to her side.

    "We'll never know, We'll never ever know if you just let it go"

    Lately the talks have been deep and where as she used to say thinking about "us" was her brightest thought, now it seems she wants to destroy it too get the friendship back. But Im just trying to make her see, we can get our friendship back, and put a pin in the dating talk, not a grenade, because if we end it now, we will never know.

    "If it comes undone, then tie up your loose ends.
    when the colors run, then all of the shapes blend.
    Oh, you know there's still a ways to go, so don't start retreating
    No, you just gotta take it slow
    When you're lost and all out of breath just call and I'll come running baby."

    So all we have to do is find the problems and mend them, nothing is too much for a best friendship like ours to survive. When everything in life bleeds together I want her to know we are unique and you cant find what we have around every corner. Maybe we wouldnt discover the together phase for years, but why run away from it completely? If we take it slow and are there for each other through everything, we can survive it all.

    "The days go by... "

    Life goes on, but it doesn't have to be without each other. What we have doesnt just disappear.

    So this is how this song relates to me and it just fits so perfect, plus it sounds great. It was good to get this all out, even if noone reads it, bottled up emotions kill.

    My InterpretationThis is what this song means to me. I think the song is two viewpoints. A boy at first, then it switches to a girl, and then back. The boy and the girl are dating, perhaps they were friends before, so they know everything about each other. This part, "If you call this love, then show me some feeling and if it all goes numb, just keep on breathing." Would be the boy telling the girl to show more feeling in their relationship instead of giving up. The next part is where I imagine the switching of viewpoints to be, "I'll watch you falling from (I actually hear "Falling FOR me") me, When you hit the ground, maybe you'll see, The only way to fall is down." So it's the girl watching the boy fall in love with her, but she's been hurt by love before and knows that falling for someone can only hurt you.

    Then it switches back to the boy, "I'll be up in the stars, I'll be anywhere you are. just say you need me and I'll come down." He tells her that he'd do anything or go anywhere for her.

    It's a relationship that should be beautiful and there is still hope for it, but they'll have to work on it.

    "Oh, you know there's still a ways to go, so don't start retreating
    No, you just gotta take it slow
    When you're lost and all out of breath just call and I'll come running baby"

    MemoryThis song is a representation of back when i could make more memories with that one special person in a year than I could make with two in a lifetime. when we were so close, i could feel his heartbeat when he was thousands of miles away. i havent seen him for what seems like lifetimes, although its only beenn a week, but i miss having him close to me. i love this song because it made me remeber who i love. and i dont know what love is, but if i did, then i definetly would have it. i just hope he loves me too. but i guess ill never know now, because thats what happens when you fall in love with your best friend. hes my everything, and i dont even know if im his. i know im important to him, but in what way?

    General CommentThis song reminds me of someone from Heaven watching over another person.

    I could be wrong, but that's just what it seems like to me.

    I love Swimming with Dolphins, so MUCh.

    General Commentlovee this song.
    its about two people who know eachother so well,
    and want to take the relationship further,
    but she has been hurt and they aren't sure where it will take them.
    the guy is willing to wait.
