"Manna" as written by and Tanya Donelly....
Look inside this milky whiteness
No power of the hand to dry
I'm swimming in it i'm swimming out to you
For reasons, my reasons
So photograph it the milky way
It spills into the hand and dries
I am here now and i'm staying put
For reasons, my reasons
And so to bed to bed
My soul to share
An island of the brave my soul to save
In hopes that god's awake my soul to take
I'm swimming in it i'm swimming out to you
For reasons to be home
So photograph me in milky white dreams
Spill into my head
And when i hold you like to tomorrow you might die
Well that's because you might
But i am here now
And i am staying put for reasons my heart knows

    My Interpretation.....I guess it could mean that. I still think it's about spending one last moment with their lover. Asking their lover to give their all at this last moment and despite that they won't be together forever, after he's gone she'll still be there.
