With care from you, I get addicted to
A man helpless and silent.

How can I cry to you?
You'd see my caring ability just tumble.

Why don't you write me anymore?
Have you found something as good just next door?

I open this awful machine to nothing
where once your intimacies came pounding.

Why don't you write me anymore?
What did you bind my heart's arms for?

I hope you find glory in some new heart's arms story
and can close doors on mine for sure.

    My InterpretationThis is such a simple, but beautiful song filled with wonderful metaphors. I think that most people can relate to this song, whether it's because of a failed relationship or friendship. I really resonate with the line "Why don't you write me anymore?"- I ask myself this question quite often. When he says "I open this awful machine to nothing, where once your intimacies came pounding" seems to refer to opening/turning on a computer and finding that your lover, or friend, didn't respond to your email. "What did you bind my heart's arms for?" refers to the way which we may feel unable to love another after a relationship ends with no closure. When he says "I hope you find glory in some new heart's arms story, and can close doors on mine for sure" he is wishing his lover well despite what happened but at the same time wanting closure- something we don't always get. I would write a poem about this but my muse left me long ago.
