"Fragile Dreams" as written by and Daniel Cavanagh....
Countless times I trusted you
I let you back in
Knowing, yearning you know
I should have run but I stayed

Maybe I always knew
My fragile dreams would be broken for you

Today I introduced myself
To my own feelings
In silent agony, after all these years
They spoke to me after all these years

Maybe I always knew
My fragile dreams would be broken for you

    General CommentI think this song is more about inner sruggle within person, then it's got something to do with other person directly.

    General CommentAbsolutely stunning song. I think it, quite simply, is about someone who, several times, trusted an old friend or an ex, despite knowing that they would get hurt. Anathema is insane when everything works out for them like on this song, incredible band.

    My InterpretationTo me this is about letting someone back into your life, even though in the past they have hurt you. And even though you know, in the back of your mind, that this person is poison to your life, you keep letting them back in because of how much you love them. However, you eventually come to admit that this person is just bad for you and you become flooded with a bunch of emotions you haven't felt before and because of this you can finally move on with your life.

    General CommentThis is just too good a song... it has a wholly different ambience in itself... fills me with a warm feeling everytime i listen to it even though the lyrics are a bit saddening . Maybe the haunting keyboards in the background and the guitaring does the trick of transporting you into a dreamworld of your own.....

    General Commentthis song was with me at most important moments of my life.this song is a cult of song of anathema.what i understand from "fragile dreams" is a struggling in one's inside but the feelings that i cant explain makes the invaluable impact.
