i dream of doing nothing
together.
and i wish i was sitting next to you
saying nothing
when there was nothing to be said at all.
at all.

this place is so wide-open.
the wind chills to the bone.
the wind is the sound of you crying.
of all those ever alone.

i'd rather feel the pain
and spend time licking my wounds
then to have to know what it's like to live without you.
without you here.

i'm longing to be
your victim of
circumstance.
(circumstance)
and now at least i know you.

    General Commentbasically it means he'll take whatever she'll give him, which, evidently isnt much.

    General Commentit's actually just the wind is the sound of crying, not "of you crying". no, this song is simply about a guy with a crush on a girl (i dream of doing nothing, together, and i wish i was sitting next to you), and he's in pain because instead he's alone (this place is so wide-open, the wind chills to the bone, the wind is the sound of crying, of all those ever alone.) The third verse is about him deciding to take a chance on the girl, the whole "it's better to have loved and lost logic comes into play, and then the 4th verse... a victim of circumstance i'm not sure about, it could mean he wishes that fate would sort of put him and her together, and now at least i know you probably means he tried and failed, but he doesn't regret... sorry i ramble. i love this song.

    ANYONE GOT TABS?

    General Commentoops, i just checked... it's actually

    this place is so wide-open.
    the wind chills to the bone.
    the wind is the sound of THE crying.
    of all those ever alone.
