"Exile" as written by and David Greenslade....
Fragments of my life
Are slipping through time
In washed out memories
I just can't seem to find

It seems I break
All my fragile dreams
When I call
The angel into me
So what I have I done?
What have I done?
Have I made you proud
Or have I driven you away?

Her eyes are complicated
Silently she slips away
And in her wake I find
A cascade of regret
All that I believe in
The anchors in my heart
Cannot be for nothing
But we still stand apart...
In silence

It seems I break
All my fragile dreams
When I call
The angels back to me
So what have I done?
What have I done?
When time has claimed my fire
And left me in exile?

Shadows cross in essence
As part of what I am
When you try to see the angel
Standing like a man
Paper hearts and faded pictures
That we cherish all the while
And guard with eyes of distance forests
Raining tears placed in exile

What have I done?
Who have I become?
Though these words may come alive
Poets and prophets die

God are you sleeping?
God are you dreaming?
Are you watching me tonight
Finding tears to mark the time?
God are you sleeping?
God are you dreaming?
Are you crying for my life?
Falling angels in exile

God are you sleeping?
Never give up
God are you dreaming?
Never give in
There is fight within
Do you hear me in the dark?

God are you sleeping?
Never give up
God are you dreaming?
Never give in
There is fight within
And I long to see your smile

What have I done?
Who have I become?
Though these words may come alive
Poets and prophets... die

    General CommentWow, no comments on this song yet?

    Anyway, I think it refers to splitting up with someone you deeply love, but who equally hurt you. You so long to be with them because you love them;

    "The anchors in my heart
    Cannot be for nothing"

    "It seems I break
    All my fragile dreams
    When I call
    The angels back to me"

    makes me think about being hurt in the relationship.

    On the other hand that could be interpreted as all the pain only came after splitting up. The anchors makes me think it was his choice of splitting up, breaking all the dreams makes me think of rejection, maybe when he realises how much he truely loved his "angel" but couldn't get back together?
