"Skimming Stones" as written by Kirsty Hawkshaw and Justin N Elswick....
All I want is to reach the horizon
Where these skimming stones go on forever
For as they sink, I sink with them
Just to hold your hand right now
Would be all that I know

And I'll take you down
To the depths of my soul

I'd sink in that bliss, in that oneness
Lord I still don't really know how to love you
The way you love me... I don't feel worthy
And I envy the eyes of those who do

Lord I don't know, the way you love me

And if I knew it then, somehow I'd remember
That trust, that openness, I will make true decisions
Walking straight ahead
Instead of following directions
Out of line to the left or right
In the arms of a lover

In the endless starry night
I've done that all my life
These skimming stones decide
These skimming stones still lie

    General CommentWell this song is obviously a type of love song and the person singing is doubting herself and wondering if she's really worth his love and she envies everyone who she thinks is worth his love. I think the Skimming Stones are a way to say that she's not going to leave him "These skimming stones decide" could mean she made up her mind and "these skimming stones still lie" probably means that she will remain with him.
    All and all, beautiful song. I listen to it way too much :)
