I waited long ago this time
In the cold and rain
So tell me what the time is now
Before I figure it out
This place is made of dust
A tear drop on the windowpane
Slides outside into rust

Condition isn’t right
Along we put up such a fight
An adoration in a frame it’s a shame
You won’t trust
So I’m telling you tonight
Everything I held inside
I can’t take on this flight

We walk up through rivers of fire
High tides try to kill off desire
Slow burning crimes
Keep us up through the night

We waited long ago this time
In the cold and rain
So tell me what the time is now
Before we figure it out
Do you really wanna know
I found it in a photograph it can’t last
All along the way home

We walk up through rivers of fire
High tides try to kill off desire
Slow burning crimes
Keep us up through the night

We walk up through rivers of fire
High tides try to kill off desire
Slow burning crimes
Keep us up through the night

    My OpinionIn every song, we could see touch of reality's touch. It is evident that even in music, an artist could tell relay the message of frustrations and sufferings. At this point, the economy will not recover at the time a lot of us hope. Circumstances look excellent for the individuals earning profits and they are the ones stating the economy will recover. Mainly small classes of folks profit financially should the country's economy takes a dive. An individual only has to look on the web to see a new bounty of lending sites that fit every little situation. You can get loans at this moment to pay bail bond agents for getting folks out of jail, (See bailbondlenders.com/">bailbondlenders.com). The web is becoming out of hand. Persons need to be leery of anybody who is advising them to spend cash and not save.

    My InterpretationThis song seems like it's a narrative in the singer's head about a relationship she can't stop thinking about while she's out on tour with the band. The lyrics "we walk through rivers of fire/high tides try to kill off desire" implies that the relationship is constantly tested, while "slow burning crimes keep us up through the night" feels like reminiscing about spending the intimate middle hours of the night with someone important. It sounds like the relationship is constantly tested because the other person doesn't trust her while she's away on tour, but she's always thinking about him/her and missing them while she's gone.
