I wanted to save you
Give breath that escaped you
But you stayed down (stayed down)
To resuscitate you
Breathe my breath back into you
You stayed out (stayed out)

I wanted to shake you
To scream to awaken you
You stayed down (stayed out)

In your slumber you saw everything
Everything but me

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?
Don't you know that heaven is slow?
Don't remake our heaven

I wanted to save us
Wept words that escaped us
But you stayed out (You shut them out)
I fell down to face you
To find you were wakeful
And you'd forced me out, I'm nothing now

In your slumber you saved everything
Everything but me

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?
Don't you know that heaven is slow?
Don't remake our heaven

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?

Don't you know that heaven is slow?
Don't erase our heaven

    My InterpretationI wanted to save you
    Give breath that escaped you
    But you stayed down (stayed down)
    To resuscitate you
    Breathe my breath back into you
    You stayed out (stayed out)

    (Davey felt her slipping away from him, he tried to pour himself into her, to bring her back from this stupor and this slow pulling away.)

    I wanted to shake you
    To scream to awaken you
    You stayed down (stayed out)

    (It was like she was in a trace, so unlike herself, where had she gone? Shake her and scream to bring her back)

    In your slumber you saw everything
    Everything but me

    Why must we stop?
    Why must we stop now?
    Why must you crush our glow?
    Don't you know that heaven is slow?
    Don't remake our heaven

    ( why are you doing this? Why are you destroying us? Heaven is slow meaning that creating a relationship takes time...don't remake our heaven....don't remake it with somebody else. Why when you already have it?)

    I wanted to save us
    Wept words that escaped us
    But you stayed out (You shut them out)
    I fell down to face you
    To find you were wakeful
    And you'd forced me out, I'm nothing now

    ( Davey tried, he struggled to hold it all together..she would hear none of it, she had already discarded it all....she single handedly took the relationship and dissolved it and he was left in the wake stunned and crestfallen)

    In your slumber you saved everything
    Everything but me

    (In her peaceful trance lost she cut him out completely )


    Why must we stop?
    Why must we stop now?
    Why must you crush our glow?
    Don't you know that heaven is slow?
    Don't remake our heaven

    Why must we stop?
    Why must we stop now?
    Why must you crush our glow?

    Don't you know that heaven is slow?
    Don't erase our heaven
