"Walk This World" as written by and Heather Nova....
I have slept beside the winter
And the green is growing slow
I have watched you find the places
Hidden by the snow
I have tripped into a valley
That is blue till you can see
I want you to come walk this world with me

With the light in our eyes it's hard to see Holding on and on to what we believe
With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
I want you to come walk this world with me

And I'm sucked in by the wonder
And I'm fucked up by the lies
And I dig a hole to lie in
And I build some wings to fly
And I think that I could love you 'cause
You know how to be free
I want you to come walk this world with me

With the light in our eyes it's hard to see Holding on and on 'til we believe
With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
I want you to come, I want you to come
I want you to come walk this world with me

And it's burning in our fingers
And it's burning on the road
And I like the way you're broken
And I'll like you when you're old
And I see you in the garden
And I feel you plant the seed
I want you to come walk this world with me

With the light in our eyes it's hard to see Holding on and on 'til we believe
With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
I want you to come, I want you to come
I want you to come walk this world with me

    General Commenthmm this singer is actually fairly good. i like the chorus part alot, and lyrically this song is pretty awesome. Anyway, i think it's about how she has learned to see the good things about this world, even through the bad. She sees this guy who she's been watching for a while (as in a stranger) and is just like hey you seem like someone I could get to know, let me show you how i see the world

    General Comment"And I like the way you're broken
    And I'll like you when you're old ". To me that says her feelings for this person are not fleeting. And stating that she'll like them when they are old is such devotion. It seems like the person she is singing to has to be convinced of this, as though they are questioning her motives or they do not believe she is the faithful kind. Maybe they've been hurt before and are protective of who they give their heart to, but they shouldn't be because, hello, she'll like you when you're old so just go with it and let love in.

    My InterpretationHer relationship with her current/previous partner has become dull and distant. They grew apart.
    Therefore she is starting to see the beauty in other people, things she misses in her current relationship.
    One person triggered her attention for letting her see that he does things she misses in her current relationship.

    She fell in love without realizing, which made her feel sad until she figured out that she loved someone else.
    From then on she wants him on her side in het life.

    Love makes them blind, and they only (want) see the beauty. She really hungers for him,

    She's overwhelmed by the good feelings and at the same time mad at her current/previous lover. But for a while she is struck with doubt and can't decide, therefore crawls into her shell . After a while she decides to breaks up and chooses a new life.
