"Dust" as written by and Cara Elizabeth Salimando....
And she was just
Another lullaby
With candlelight eyes
Singing you to sleep
Drowsy with heat

And you were just
A warning to avoid
Asleep upon the soil
Holding onto night
Fading with its light
Fading with its light

[Chorus]
And your heart was a bird, scared still and alone, and the only thing she ever cared for
With wings tattered and torn beating unevenly, beating unevenly

And your heart was a bird scared still and alone and the only thing she ever cared for
When your heart was forgotten, alone on the floor, she picked it up, brushed it of dust, brushed it of, dust

And you were just, a love drunk vagabond
With little reason to hold on
Pressed against the glass
Watching people pass
Watching people pass

[Chorus]

And you both intermingled
Beautiful and as simple
And you both intermingled
Beautiful and simple as dust
As dust

And you were just, another lullaby
With candlelight eyes,
Signing her to sleep
Singing her to sleep

    My InterpretationThis is such a nice song. I think it's about a guy who was very stiff when it came to love since he had his heart broken before. He was wreck until a girl came a long who made him believe in love again and she basically picked him up off his feet.
