With your bright dreams through the night.
It's all straight from your grey sky.
And falling all around you.
Tongue tied and all.

I know you're waiting on an answer.
I saw her beauty overwhelming.
She keeps you draped around her shoulders.
So don't let go.

Here longing to your side.
Held back to the confines.
And every silence all around me is screaming through the walls.
So long to your dark night.
Gives way to your delight.
Beauty all around you.
Tongue tied in awe.

    General CommentWhat this song means to me is it's about being reserved to someone you love. To not really tell them how you feel mostly because of your fears, "Held back to the confines", "And Every Silence all around me is screaming through the walls". This song also describes why you just let those feelings out, "She keeps you draped around her shoulders, So don't let go". And what this means is basically if you have her, then go after her.- in a metaphorical sense

    General CommentI have every Copelan album, but i never picked up the Grey Man EP. I just found this song yesterday, and it's just amazing. I have to place it up there with my favorite Copeland songs ever, Love Affair, Kite, The Last Time He Saw Dorie, and a few others. Heck, i could name every Copeland song in that list. Aaron's voice really comes out in this song, it's amazing how high he can get and still allow it so sound so nice. You really don't come around to vocalists like him much, and it's great to see him use his talents so nicely.
    As for the meaning behind this song, i get a picture in my head of a guy and a girl, and the girl asks him a question, but he's not listening and just staring straight into the girls eyes. He gets overwhelmed by her beauty and perfections that he just gets lost in her eyes. I may be very off, but i think Copeland doesn't mind if you just take the song however you want to take it. Copeland paints the most beautiful pictures in my head, mainly because of the genius lyrics in almost every song.
    Copeland may have split up, but their music will live on, and i know i'll find myself listening to them years down the road.

    General CommentTo me, I think this song is about a guy who's waiting on a beautiful girl he's in love with.
    "I know you're waiting on an answer.
    "And I saw her beauty overwhelming"
    But she doesn't know if she's really in love with him. But she keeps letting him know there's chance they could end up being together.
    "She keeps you draped around her shoulders"
    So he keeps telling himself to be patient and try his best to wait for her.
    "So don't let go"

    Well, thats how I see the song anyway. It's a beautiful track and one of my favorite Copeland songs.
