in a dream I swam to the other side
from all wasn't fair and suddenly my heart was numb

now I never lose the track again
oh now I never lose the track again

but worries come fast and i'm too young to know
but too old to change

on the yellow fields of the harvest swaying
I fell with you and now I never want to walk alone
I'm always afraid of losing it
oh, why I'm always afraid of losing it?
I must have lost the track of where I'd come
I must have lost the hope

and summers turned so fast
like everything I knew
and friends they passed me by
all the ones I used to know
I must have slept for long
I didn't know where I have come

in a dream I swam to the other side
and everything was different and suddenly my heart was light
now I never lose the track again,
oh now I never lose the track again
people were calm and no one seemed to care
but neither raise the hopes

with a dagger in hand and with time to kill
l could promise not to but now I never say no no more

always thought they would carry me
but in life youre always on your own again
with the choices at hands and all the time I'd need
still couldn't make it work

dont you understand how to let it pass
how to hide yourself to let no one ever see your wounds
now you never lose the track again
oh now you never lose the track again
after all that had been haunting me it couldn't reach me here
I didn't feel the pain I didn't feel at all

    My InterpretationThe singer had reached a point in his life where his friends had all grown up (established careers etc.), and he felt left behind. He dreamed of being where they were ('the other side'), but he felt that he was too old to change his ways. He was fortunate to have found someone who he loved deeply and who he was afraid of losing ('I fell with you and now I never want to walk alone'), but he still feels like he was wasting his life.

    The reason I am speaking mainly in the past tense is that he is speaking 'from the other side' (i.e. the afterlife), presumably after killing himself 'with a dagger in hand'. Although he says that he is finally free from sadness ('all that had been haunting me it couldn't reach me here. I didn't feel the pain, I didn't feel at all'), that last line 'I didn't feel at all' acts as a warning to people not to resort to suicide, as it has left him feeling nothing, and he wishes he had 'let it pass'.

    It's just my interpretation, though, so I could be wrong! Any thoughts?
