I should be lost without you now, but it's easy on my own
So don't be waiting at your door for me to come around
I've seen the sights, I've heard the sounds, I knew them as a child
I'm trusting what I knew then now

I'm looking for something that's been buried underground for years
And it's so old that even I don't know if I will recognise it anymore
On my own

I should be calling out your name, but I've been that ball and chain
I've set my sights on something new, I can see it closer now
I'm breaking up, I'm wandering far, take me away from you
There's so much that I've got to do

I'm looking for something that's been buried underground for years
And it's so old that even I don't know if I will recognise it anymore
On my own

I'm looking for something that's been buried underground for years
And it's so old that even I don't know if I will recognise it anymore
I'm searching, I'm waiting, I need time to find out
On my own

    My InterpretationIn my opninion this song seems to be about a very personal realisation and acceptance of her sexuality? She's known the clues ("sights"/ "sounds") for a long time but never really confronted them until this relationship with a guy has come to an end...she noticed how little the end of the relationship actually effected her and she's trying to distance herself from him as much as possible to work out this realisation that she has "buried underground for years"
    I think its about sometimes accepting that you need to be alone to work your own shit out, that at the end of the day no one else can tell you who or what you are...

    lolol then again i could be completely wrong!

    (I know Sally Seltman is married to a guy so thats the onlything that confuses this interpretation...although Holly Throsby is gay...but I can't find online who wrote which songs!)

    Anyway, I love this song :D
