All my days are spent
All my cards are dealt
Oh the desolation grows!

Every inch revealed as my heart is pierced
Oh my soul is now exposed!

In the oceans deep,
In the canyon's steep
Walls of granite, here I stand.

All my desperate calls
Echo off the walls,
Back and forth then back again.

To believe I walk alone
Is a lie that I've been told.

So let your heart hold fast
For this soon shall pass
Like the high tide takes the sand.

At the bitter end
Salt and liquid blend
from the corner of my eye

All the miles wrecked,
Every broken step,
Always searching, always blind.

Never fear! No!
Never fear.

Never fear! No!
Never fear.

So let your heart hold fast
For this soon shall pass
There's another hill ahead.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a guy who loves a girl.I think he finally confessed his love for her, but it wasn't something he was used to doing. As if this girl was his first love. And when he finally confessed he felt exposed. I think he was used to flirting around and not taking love very seriously until he met her. I think he used to walking alone and never having a long term lover.

    I think at the beginning he hated hiding from her how he truly felt. I think his soul being exposed means he's falling in love with her. I think he's scared because he's never felt this way before about anyone, he's used to putting up these walls and not letting anyone ever enter them. I think he's scared she might reject him so he tries to keep it to himself so he makes these "desperate calls" :

    Every inch revealed as my heart is pierced
    Oh my soul is now exposed!

    In the oceans deep,
    In the canyon's steep
    Walls of granite, here I stand.

    All my desperate calls
    Echo off the walls,
    Back and forth then back again.


    I think it's about him getting the courage to open his heart to someone and finally express feelings that he has never felt before.

    My InterpretationI think HmmmmIdk has the right general idea, but for me, I think it's a guy who, yes, is not used to feeling and confessing this stuff, but I also think he was turned down and is now trying to recover.

    There's something really difficult about spilling your guts to someone, especially if they're close to you, and they just don't feel the same way. I think this song is about rising above that feeling and trying to move forward. It's really beautiful.
