If time were only part of the equation

Then you could draw the bound'ries of our cage

You wouldn't pile another stone upon me

And I'd be happy just to watch you age


But everything is in its own dominion

And waiting in the shallows as I do

Appeases me as water slowly trickles out

Which isn't nearly fast enough for you


It isn't nearly fast enough for you

It isn't nearly fast enough for you

Its what I was afraid of

I stumble into view

But it isn't nearly fast enough for you

It isn't nearly fast enough for you

    General CommentI think it's just about two people wanting to take their relationship at different speeds.....the singer wants to take it slowly/take their time, the person being sung to wants to move fast.

    General CommentYeah, the title itself implies that the singer wants his partner to be happy, but she wants to progress their relationship faster than he does.

    Song MeaningA lot of times, song meanings can differentiate pending the interpretation of the listener. In this particular song, I don't think its a question of the relationship not moving fast enough for the other party, as in a "simplistic, literal sense" (i.e. consumation), but I do sense that the narrator is in a troubled relationship - whereas the (woman) in the lyrics has a restless heart and wants more out of the relationship/ or life, than the narrator is able to give. It seems that the narrator is very much unconditionally in love with the woman, yet for whatever reasons, the relationship is in disconnect, at least from her side - but then later he finally, begrudgingly is able to see it too (i.e. the "stumbled into view" lyric).

    Just my take on it.
