She holds the world in her fingertips;
All the joy and all the pain.
She only has to close her eyes and open them again
To find out what is good and what is true and what remains.

When she cries
I swear that I have never seen a sadder star fall
From the sky.

She holds a promise in her beating heart.
And I will never understand
How her mother and her father
Could bring her into this world and give her life
And refuse to let her hold it in her hands.

When she cries
I swear that I have never seen a sadder star fall
From the sky.

And it can't feel good
Not to trust the one you love the most.
And she can't feel good
Knowing she's not trusted by the ones who love her most.

When she cries
I swear that I have never seen a sadder star fall
From the sky.

    General Commentahhh.. this is by far my favorite song right now :] "and when she cries.. i swear that i have never seen a sadder star.. fall.. from the sky"

    "and it can’t feel good
    not to trust the one you love the most"
    i believe this would be her parents to her
    "and she can’t feel good
    knowing she’s not trusted by the one who loves her most"
    this would be her to her parents
    "and I will never understand
    how her mother and her father
    could bring her into this world and give her life
    and refuse to let her hold it in her hands"
    i think this is saying he doesn't understand why her parents won't let her live/control her own life

    actually it's pretty simple to understand..

    General CommentOh my goodness, this song is about me, completely about me. This song describes me to a T. Wow, I am in love with this song. I think the meaning of it is very straightforward. This describes someone who is held back by many things, by outside forces, but also by themselves. They have many internal struggles to deal with.

    General CommentI fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. It is amazing how people could write/do such beautiful things when in some kind of awkward moment.

    General Commentthis song has got to be about me.

    i think i shall make it my theme song.

    seems to be about how parents don't trust their child sometimes...and it hurts...it really does, especially when you are doing everything right.
