Cling to each rock
The wind is not on our side
Not on our side
Not on our side
Pull yourself together its not much further
From the top on high
The smoke is finding its way to the sky
Not a place I want to be
Not a place that I want to be
She sits pale skinned in a fire light
One message to change her mind
One message to change her life forever
One message to change her mind

He climbs over the top
No breath No breath
In his weak sick lungs,
She starts to run
to the edge at last it's over

Cling to each rock
The wind is not on our side
Not on our side

She lays beside him
His eyes so weak
He can't even make her out
But his body feels good
All around him
She whispers something in his ear
That he takes to the grave
To the grave,
And now

Hours pass before they reach the top,
before they reach the top,
Hours pass before they reach the top,
before they reach the top.
Shes waiting x8

    General CommentCling to ___,
    The wind is not on our side,
    Pull yourself together it’s not, ?not forever?

    ?From the top, on high?
    The smoke is finding its way into towards the sky,
    Not a place I want to be, not a place I want to be,
    She sits bare skin in the fire ?line/light?,
    One message to change her mind,
    One message to change her life forever,
    One message to change her mind.

    ???

    Cling to each ___
    The wind is not on our side...

    She lays beside him, his eyes so weak,
    He can’t even make her out, but his body feels her,
    All around him, she whispers something in his ear,
    That he takes to the grave, to the grave…

    ?And hours pass?, before they ?even talk?
    Before they ?even talk?, before…

    She’s waiting.

    General CommentFrom the book.

    Cling to each rock
    The wind is not on our side
    Not on our side
    Not on our side
    Pull yourself together its not much further
    From the top on high
    The smoke is finding its way to the sky
    Not a place I want to be
    Not a place that I want to be
    She sits pale skinned in a fire light
    One message to change her mind
    One message to change her life forever
    One message to change her mind

    He climbs over the top
    No breath No breath
    In his weak sick lungs,
    She starts to run
    to the edge at last it's over

    Cling to each rock
    The wind is not on our side
    Not on our side

    She lays beside him
    His eyes so weak
    He can't even make her out
    But his body feels good
    All around him
    She whispers something in his ear
    That he takes to the grave
    To the grave,
    And now

    Hours pass before they reach the top,
    before they reach the top,
    Hours pass before they reach the top,
    before they reach the top.

    General CommentThis with I Still Feel Her: Part I are my two favourite songs off the album.
    I think they are about a man who is running to find a girl he loves to save her from inside fire but I don't think it's in a building. A forest fire maybe?

    (First few quotes are from I Still Feel Her)

    "When does the moonlight end
    The smell is so faint
    But it must be the one"

    Maybe the smell is the smoke from the fire?

    "Do I have the strength
    To go on
    Smoke begins to fill my head
    But still I press on"

    I think this is when he has gone into the building and is looking for her as the smoke is all around him but he is battling to carry on.

    "Shes waiting
    Shes waiting
    Shes waiting
    I feel her
    Shes waiting"

    He knows she is in there somewhere waiting as he can "feel her".

    "Cling to each rock
    The wind is not on our side
    Not on our side
    Not on our side
    Pull yourself together its not much further"

    This carries on from the end of I Still Feel Her, it's him battling to find her but it seems like everything is trying to get in his way. Or maybe when he mentions the wind he means that it is making the fire more intense. This bit makes me think it's not a fire in a building as it mentions clinging to each rock as if he is climbing somehwere.

    "The smoke is finding its way to the sky
    Not a place I want to be
    Not a place that I want to be
    She sits pale skinned in a fire light"

    This is the bit that most hints at a fire. He has found her in the fire and she sits 'pale sninned' in the firelight because she is scared?

    "One message to change her mind
    One message to change her life forever
    One message to change her mind"

    I think this means that he has not told the girl he loves her yet or something.

    "He climbs over the top
    No breath No breath
    In his weak sick lungs,
    She starts to run
    to the edge at last it's over"

    This bit also hints at it being a forest fire or something. This is when he finds her and she runs to him.

    "She lays beside him
    His eyes so weak
    He can't even make her out
    But his body feels good
    All around him"

    In this bit her has found her and they are lying together. His eyes are weak because of the smoke but even though there are in a terrible situation, his body feels good because he is with her.

    "She whispers something in his ear
    That he takes to the grave
    To the grave,
    And now"

    Maybe she tell him she loves him too and then they die together?

    "Hours pass before they reach the top,
    before they reach the top."

    Before they reach heaven? Not too sure.



    Anyway, it's an amazing song.
    That's what I think but I could be wrong.

    General CommentVery haunting lyrics..
    Im guessing he digs this girl and he's trying to figure out what to say to her to fix it?
    "Cling to each rock
    The wind is not on our side" - Enjoy the time thats left, were bound to fail

    "She sits pale skinned in a fire light
    One message to change her mind
    One message to change her life forever" - He wants to make it work

    "He climbs over the top
    No breath No breath" - couldnt pull it off

    "She starts to run
    to the edge at last it's over" - There finished

    General Commenttaken from Jonny himself:

    Part 1, and Part 2, are essentially a story about a couple who nobody wants together...

    Part 1 deals with the shock of finding out that nobody wants them together, and the male wondering if the female will stick with him through all the hate, and the male asking, then deciding that the female means enough to him to fight for

    Part 2 deals with the fight to sustain the relationship through everybodys disapproval but how they overcome this to stand together at the end....

    Song MeaningSo as jamesgc said, this is about a couple who no body wants together.

    "Cling to each rock
    The wind is not on our side
    Not on our side
    Not on our side
    Pull yourself together its not much further
    From the top on high
    The smoke is finding its way to the sky
    Not a place I want to be
    Not a place that I want to be"
    I believe this section is about how all the obsicules they have to go through. He's saying, 'Hold on, everything will be better in the end. Although people don't believe in us, I do. Don't give up on me.'

    "She sits pale skinned in a fire light
    One message to change her mind
    One message to change her life forever
    One message to change her mind"
    Now in the section, she's having second on her and his relationship. It's getting hard. She's just on the edge.

    "He climbs over the top
    No breath No breath
    In his weak sick lungs,
    She starts to run
    to the edge at last it's over"
    Here, he's doing everything in his power to keep her by his side. She's pretty much lost hope.

    "Cling to each rock
    The wind is not on our side
    Not on our side"
    Again, he's telling her 'Please stay strong.'

    "She lays beside him
    His eyes so weak
    He can't even make her out
    But his body feels good
    All around him
    She whispers something in his ear
    That he takes to the grave
    To the grave,"
    She's giving him some more hope, but even he can see there's no hope left. She tells him she loves him.

    "Hours pass before they reach the top,
    before they reach the top,
    Hours pass before they reach the top,
    before they reach the top.
    Shes waiting..."
    They still struggling, but they love eachother so they keep trying.
