There, there must be
An easier way
To release these feelings

So, so far from home
In need of your voice
To hold my head together

So, so far from home
In need of your voice
To lift my lonely state of mind

You, you can but wait
for me to return
For me to show you how I felt

These months have just blurred
and the days just fly by
These times I needed to feel you
right by my side

So, so far from home
In need of your voice
To hold my head together

So, So far from home
In need of your voice
To lift my lonely state of mind

Oh there must be
An easier way
Oh there must be
An easier way
Oh there must be
An easier way
To release these feelings

As the sea breeze hits my lungs
It takes me back to where I belong
To where I belong

As the sea breeze hits my lungs
It takes me back to where I belong
To where I belong

As the sea breeze hits my lungs
It takes me back to where I belong
To where I belong

    My InterpretationAlthough my interpretation is biased and most likely doesn't reflect the artists intentions at all, I thought I'd toss in my two cents.

    "Oh there must be an easier way!
    To release these feelings!

    As the sea breeze hits my lungs, it takes me back to where I belong!"

    -To me, this album reflects a very dark time in my life, when my only thought was of suicide--by drowning to be specific--and my loneliness and depression were only outweighed by the anger and desperation in my heart and mind. This song in particular gives voice to both sides of my mind at the time--one overlooking the ocean from atop a cliff, screaming for release, the other lost somewhere deep inside, searching for meaning.

    "So...so far from home, In need of your voice to hold my head together.
    So...so far from home, In need of your voice to lift my lonely state of mind."

    -At one point, I felt so far disconnected from those around me, that for all I cared, I could have been on the moon.

    As I said, this is most likely nothing like the intended meaning or associated emotions, but I needed to get it off my chest. Take from it what you will.

    General Commenti think this song is about fame and missing home,
    hence 'hollow crown', the crown of fame is a fake and hollow one, and he wants to be home

    General CommentJust commenting for a second on the song title, I think it also has something to do with being on tour. "Hollow Crown" could be a metaphor for how the band has seen so much success and has so many people looking up to it, but that the person who really matters isn't there, so that "crown" means nothing.

    General Comment"As the sea breeze hits my lungs

    First time i read it, without realizing, this lyrics immediately reminded me of the Brighton beach and how the winds are quite strong there but really nice. I think there's a correlation between that and the fact that these cats are from Brighton.

    General CommentDefinitely about being away on tour and missing your girl.

    So, so far from home
    I need your voice
    To hold my head together

    - He needs his girlfriend by his side

    As the sea breeze hits my lungs
    It takes me back to where I belong
    To where I belong

    - The feeling he gets when he returns home ?

    This song is pretty sweet either way.. It's a nice break from all the heavy stuff on the album. Am definitely buying it.

    General CommentActual lyrics are:

    "There...there must be an easier way to release these feelings.

    So...so far from home, In need of your voice to hold my head together.
    So...so far from home, In need of your voice to lift my lonely state of mind.

    You...you can but wait for me to return, for me to show you how I felt.
    These months have just blurred, and the days just fly by.
    These times I needed to feel you right by my side.

    So...so far from home, In need of your voice to hold my head together.
    So...so far from home, In need of your voice to lift my lonely state of mind.

    Oh there must be an easier way!
    Oh there must be an easier way!
    Oh there must be an easier way!
    To release these feelings!

    As the sea breeze hits my lungs, it takes me back to where I belong!"

    General CommentOh, and amazing song, by the way. Slow, less heavy, almost ballad-like songs like this always get me, haha.

    General CommentHmmm... Almost definitely about being out on the road, but who knows the deepest bit. I think it starts of like a bit of a lament to "someone" then gradually works its way to just being back home, and how great it feels after being away for any extended period of time. Where's the comments, we need more loving for these guys!
