"Breaking Ties" as written by and Hope Grant....
Oh when the cold wind blows
I feel it to the bone
Oh when you say you know
I feel I am not alone

And even though I may return
To empty places on my own
Where I remember everything
You want me to forget

And you provide a parachute
When I am falling like a stone
And I remember there's a life
That I have not lived yet

You and I, truth and lies
I've been fooling myself too long
You and I, breaking ties
How could we be so right and so wrong?

I hear the words you say
Your mouth against my skin
My world just falls away
You light me from within

And even though I may return
To empty places on my own
Where I remember everything
You want me to forget

And you provide a parachute
When I am falling like a stone
And I remember there's a life
That I have not lived yet

You and I, truth and lies
I've been fooling myself too long
You and I, breaking ties
How could we be so right and so wrong?

Truth and lies
Breaking ties

You and I, truth and lies
I've been fooling myself too long
You and I, breaking ties
How could we be so right and so wrong?

    My InterpretationI really love the melody of the song, sounds very beautiful but mellow. The song is obviously about a couple. But I feel like when they say "Breaking Ties" like in most relationships, when people get together in love, they kind of forget their friendships, and spend more time with each other... lol that's true for most people. And eventually I guess, they break up? Also breaking their ties, and so I guess when she says "Even though I may return to empty places on my own" kind of sounds like they broke up and she'd be remembered of their old times together, therefore, she says "you want me to forget"--- and the life that she hasn't lived yet, is the one that is without the person, she gave up her friendships for this one guy... that's why it's so right and so wrong. Right in the sense that they both love each other, wrong in that it's wrong to break ties with your friends. "I've been fooling myself for too long" as in she knows what she's doing is a horrible thing (horrible friend), but she does it anyways despite knowing that what she has with the guy won't last long.

    Truth and lies, you and I, breaking ties...

    Sad stuff, but sounds so beautiful. lol
