I turn around to talk
I face your eyes
Fight replaces fright
To my surprise...
I feel as I'm falling, and I see
Your soul in your eyes
As I die...
I try to stand tall
You roll your eyes
You feel the same way I do
To my surprise...
I feel as we're drowning in the deepest sea
You die, you're gone just like me

Her eyes are staring at me
Empty as the sky
In this moment of tranquility
I realize
This is goodbye...

    General CommentI think it's about two people loving each other very much, but the girl acts like she doesn't care about him ( or vise versa) though she feel sthe same way, and it's alright that it's over.

    General CommentI think this song is about the moment that two people break up.
    Her eyes are empty as the sky: without any passion for him that she showed before (she isn't moved by staring at him like lovers are).
    In both of them something dies, namely the love they felt for eachother.
    I think the moment of tranquility is when they stare at eachother without feeling anything, without any emotions, just before she is breaking up with him.

    That's as much as I can make it, keeping in mind the introduction: "What do you fear most in the world?" - "The possibility that love is not enough"

    General CommentIt's definitely about a break up. But even though it's sad, he realizes that they have to move on, and he feels calm about it. It's the final realization that what they had is lost.

    General CommentI definately felt it was about double suicide... There too many "drowning" and "dies" in this, for it to be about moveing on after a break up...

    General CommentThis song always makes me think of a car crash, for some reason, both of them bleeding to death together. I hardly think that's what the song is about, nor do I think it's about suicide or any other kind of literal dying. Rather, I think it's about the falling out of love, a calm yet still sad breakup where they both just realize that it's best to move on.

    An absolutely lovely song either way, especially the instrumental part right after the first "In this moment of tranquility / I realize / this is goodbye".

    General CommentThe introduction of this song is from Twin Peaks. Google it and see for yourself. =P
    I feel like the "dying" in this song is about their feelings for each other and their relationship dying and fading away.

    General CommentIt's more or less about love not being enough to hold a relationship together. There are other things you need to take into account, and though you may love the person, it isn't all there is.

    Suicide has nothing to do with it, by the way..
