I love you
I cried on your mother's shoulder
Like a broken hearted soldier
She knew and I knew
What all the tears were for

But weary, exhausted from flames of light (X3)
Trinity's crying (X4)

I love you (X4)
But weary, exhausted from flames of light (X2)
Trinity's crying (X4)

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics should read:

    I love you
    I cried on your mother's shoulder
    Like a broken hearted soldier
    She knew and I knew
    What all the tears were for

    Weary exhausted flames of light
    Weary exhausted flames of light
    Weary exhausted flames of light

    Trinity's crying
    Trinity's crying
    Trinity's crying
    Trinity's crying

    I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you

    Weary exhausted flames of light
    Weary exhausted flames of light

    Trinity's crying
    Trinity's crying
    Trinity's crying
    Trinity's crying

    My interpretation is that I think the song in its simplest form is about heartbreak or loss of a loved one. I could possibly be about losing move more because of the 'Like a broken hearted soldier'. Many times when soldiers have return home from war and such things they've found that their wife, husband or girlfriend or boyfriend have found another love. Though as I think about it hidden part about her and her mother knowing but not saying that Trinity is cry's for could be about that Trin had loved someone from afar again maybe the guy or girl broken Trinity's heart without knowing it so she's crying, though these tears are weary exhausted flames of light that always flicker.

    General CommentI can't say I have been a fan of this song, I usually skip it when listening to The Grey Oceans Album.


    I haven't a clue what it's about and the lyrics aren't very in depth

    General CommentLooking at the words "your mother's shoulder" and "weary exhausted flames of light" make me think that, perhaps, whoever "your" is, died. "She knew and I knew / What all the tears were for" gives a closeness to whatever happened to the both of them. As well, a "Trinity" is a grouping of three, with "Holy Trinity" being the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I think they meant a reference to both (judging from the religious references in their other songs). By this, I mean that, and this is only theory, a trio was broken by sin, or death, and that the Heavens are crying right alongside the speaker. I can't help but wonder if this "your" is just a distancing word used to describe the gap Sierra and Bianca felt towards their brother, Simon, whom I think is the one that molested them as children. If that is the case, then it would make sense that his molestation (a great sin) to them will have severed the ties between the three of them, and thus, broken Trinity.
