(person 1):
"close my eyes
pull my heart strings
pour my tears from your hands
'connections are never easy,' you said
empty words
empty soul
I believe that we are afraid of one another"
(person 2):
"and I, I believe that you have died within me"
...I fade from myself
I miss you again
I fade from myself
I miss you again...again
(what have we got?)
bloody broken and hidden away
I seek the rope from which we will hang
or so it seems
or so it seems
the dance of flesh on flesh has rendered us blind
(person 1):
"I look into eyes, I look into stone
it's better to be stepped on than left all alone...
so now I choke on yesterday when I was someone
and I wonder where 'forever' went
and how our 'everything' came undone
I opened my eyes and the heaven beneath us died."

    General CommentI agree, this is an incredibly beautiful song. The meaning is pretty straightforward, it's just an absolutely beautiful song. I love this song so much. Definitely my favorite Saetia song.

    General CommentThis song got me hooked with Saetia, It's a very great song and I can relate to it very much. The lyric, "it's better to be stepped on than left all alone..." are true, all Saetia songs remind me of Poetry.
