I'm digging through the darkness
Because I'm a long wall miner
Following a road down
Just so I can sit beside her
I'm a page torn from your novel
Beneath a magnet on your fridge
I'm the stars stuck on your ceiling
So I can watch you while your sleeping

Would you remember me
Do you remember me because
I wanted you so bad
Do you remember me
Do you remember me because
Everything we had

Was like a hammer to a stone
Wrapped like a fender around a tree
The curiosity in you
And all the emptiness in me

Digging through the vices
I don't know where the inside is
So heres my dirty little secret
And I bet you, you can't keep it
I'm a page torn from your novel
A single flower in your lawn
If I'm not everything you wished for
How come you miss me when I'm gone

Do you remember me
Do you remember me because
I wanted you so bad
Do you remember me
Do you remember me because
Everything we have

Was like a hammer to a stone
Wrapped like a fender around a tree
The curiosity in you
And all the emptiness in me
They say a diamond only whispers
To us when we are alone
It's just forever's little trick
To help a hammer find a stone
To help a hammer find a stone

    General CommentI'm digging through the darkness
    Because I'm a long wall miner
    Following a road down
    Just so I can sit beside her
    I'm a page torn from your novel
    Beneath a magnet on your fridge
    I'm the stars stuck on your ceiling
    So I can watch you while your sleeping

    and its like his place in life, his vocation to be lost at this moment
    then we are introduced to the object
    that he obviously likes allot because he would follow 'a road down just so a can sit beside her'
    'im a page torn from your novel- clearly they have had something going on before and she tried to forget it
    but she couldnt, it stayed in her memories/life but only vaguely
    he wants her to think of her and wants her to think that hes watching over her andd protecting her.>

    Do you remember me
    Do you remember me because
    I wanted you so bad
    Do you remember me
    Do you remember me because
    Everything we had

    Was like a hammer to a stone
    Wrapped like a fender around a tree
    The curiosity in you
    And all the emptiness in me

    everything they had...
    now the hammer to the stone i think... means that she stopped him being so cold and enabled him to love
    ...her love was like a hammer that broke his heart of stone and allowed him to feel...
    although it could just mean that everything they had was heartbreaking
    like a fender round a tree - twisted... bent... broken
    curiosity in you - shes over thinking everyhting and she still doesnt know what she wants
    and all the emptiness in me - self explanitory>

    Digging through the vices
    I don't know where the inside is
    So heres my dirty little secret
    And I bet you, you can't keep it
    I'm a page torn from your novel
    A single flower in your lawn
    If I'm not everything you wished for
    How come you miss me when I'm gone

    doesnt know how to get back to where he was
    the rest is self explanitory>

    Do you remember me
    Do you remember me because
    I wanted you so bad
    Do you remember me
    Do you remember me because
    Everything we have

    Was like a hammer to a stone
    Wrapped like a fender around a tree
    The curiosity in you
    And all the emptiness in me
    They say a diamond only whispers
    To us when we are alone
    It's just forever's little trick
    To help a hammer find a stone
    To help a hammer find a stone



    in conclusion the main metaphor is she is the hammer, he is the stone.

    this is a very thoughtful song and it is in my opinion the greatest song ever... ever

    My OpinionI feel that he died, it would explain the watching over as the stars, a single rose on her lawn, digging through the darkness. He proposed to her and she said no, he got drunk and went out and crashed into a tree. Hence the like a fender around a tree.
