So we're alone at last,
the very touch of your hand
here in this town that holds you
is all that I have.
'are you afraid?' she asks
'cos if you can't live this way,
then you should unpack now'

'Well you could try and wait?'
-'oh but I've sat so still for you'
'but I can't change my life and not change this'

You un-tie me
So what would you do?
Cos that's what I would do too
And you know I seem to never
know what to say, and I've been holding back
Will you un-tie me?
So I can stay with you

So you're asleep when I
kiss your forehead goodbye,
remember all I've told you-
remember our pact
cos being here with you is a solid
half of my life
but can I join the two?
Cos when I think that I may-
girl I tip the scales with you,
but If I forget all my plans
would I forget you too?

You un-tie me
So what would you do?
Cos that's what I would do too
And you know I seem to never
know what to say, and I've been holding back
Will you un-tie me?
So I can stay with you

I'm starting to think that I just see
our lives through other's eyes,
and I have fallen upon deaf ears,
I've seen your tears well up inside
and now I know why

You un-tie me
So make sure you mean it

Cos that's what I would do too
Cos you know I seem to never
know what to say, and I've been holding back
Will you un-tie me?
So I can stay with you

    General CommentI think the song is about him having to make a decision that would either end in him leaving her or choosing the other life. The decision is too hard for him to make and he doesn't want to hurt her, so he asks for help. But he's so caught up in the other life that he needs her to untie him. Whatever she tells him to do is what he'll do.
    "
    cos being here with you is a solid
    half of my life
    but can I join the two?
    Cos when I think that I may-
    girl I tip the scales with you,
    but If I forget all my plans
    would I forget you too?"

    He can't have both lives, but he doesn't want one without the other either.

    So basically just confusion and a really hard decision. This song is so beautiful.
