It's like barbed wire, this crucial touch
That holds me here, expects so much
No disregard will tie me down
I will be waiting, waiting for us

In 50 or 60
She'll leave me completely
And one of us will coldly hold the other's hand
No metaphor for this that I can understand

Show me
It's like barbed wire, this crucial touch
That holds me here, expects so much
No disregard
No garish charm
I will be waiting, waiting for us

We'll be waiting in the shadows in the dead of night

So hold me
And sway me
"Remember me daily."
And all that will remain of us is photographs
No metaphor for this that I can understand

Show me
It's like barbed wire, this crucial touch
That holds me near, expects so much
No disregard will tie me down.
I will be waiting, waiting for us

We'll be waiting in the shadows in the dead of night

It's barbed wire
That holds me here
No disregard will tie me down
I will be waiting, waiting for us

    General CommentMany lyrics sites have the lyrics going "its like a fire" or "its like a wire"......but I think song meanings has it right with the above..., thats why they are my fave. Anyways, surprised there arent any comments yet on this song! This band is such a hidden gem....I bet they will be pretty popular soon. This album is gold.

    I think the song is basically obvious and saying he is held down by someone he loves and he is sincere and will always be waiting for her. =love
