Lovers' names, carved in walls
Overlap, start to merge
Some of them underneath
Maybe they appear
In graveyards
Maybe they fade away
Weathered and overgrown
Time has told
Meaningful hidden words
Suddenly appear, from the murk
Maybe they're telling us
That the end
Never was
Never will
The words have gone
But the meaning will never disappear
From the wall

    My Interpretationlove is real. and love can fade. but that doesnt mean it never existed.
    when love is real and deep enough it is carved, into something, our souls, our bodies, our minds. just because one fades and another comes your way, doesnt mean the love between you never existed. maybe the words are gone, you no longer say i love you, but that doesnt mean the times you did say it they had no meaning, they did, in that moment, have meaning.

    General CommentWow, this song is amazing. The opening is just so pleasant, and then the cowbell leading into the single verse. So epic in a casual way.
