"Fire" as written by Zoe Badwi, Mitchell Thomas and Toby William Lloyd Rand....
I'm in the middle of your bed,
but you're pushed to the side of it
and your hands are tucked
into your sleeves.
No luck in reaching them.

We could be fire.
We could be.

What do you dream
while I'm wide awake,
picking at pillow seams?
Frozen like statues,
I'm restless but afraid to move.

We could be fire.

We could be.

    Song MeaningIt sounds like the writer has been in a relationship that is nearing the end, that she isn't ready to let go of.

    I'm in the middle of your bed, [she's feeling balanced]
    but you're pushed to the side of it [he's about to exit the relationship]
    and your hands are tucked
    into your sleeves.
    No luck in reaching them. [He's closed off emotionally to her]

    We could be fire.
    We could be. [ We could still be in love.]

    What do you dream [What do you think of while you're mentally checked out]
    while I'm wide awake, [ I'm still in this]
    picking at pillow seams? [picking fights]
    Frozen like statues, [not breaking up yet due to complacency]
    I'm restless but afraid to move. [if we talk about it you could break up with me]

    We could be fire.

    We could be. [ If we try, we can reignite our passion]
