There's a man far from here
who made sure to stay well clear
of taking hold or letting go
always choosing not to know
And then his bridges burned
Sometimes still he stops and turns
listening to open skies
for broken words and severed lies

And I believe that wordless call
he hears sometimes
could reach us all

I stayed for so long where dream and day collide
Now I'm on fire

There's a girl, one I know
who wrapped up her heart in snow
Much too proud and much too vain
she thought she could hide her pain
in that clean and crispy chill
To this day, she feels it still
Once frozen to the core
she's not who she was before

And I believe that chilling cold
she feels sometimes
could touch us all

I stayed for so long where dream and day collide
Now I'm on fire

Let it freeze, let it burn
Someday soon it is your turn
to fall down where others fell
As they wept, you will as well

    My OpinionWell, five years now and still I don't get it..

    "Let it freeze, let it burn
    Someday soon it is your turn
    to fall down where others fell
    As they wept, you will as well"

    -part is quite "understandable" though :)
