We meet every night in broken hope. We meet and never go on. We turn around, like a wheel that's old and warn. We bleed... but never to long.

What would you think of me If I took my words and run? You couldn't be the one.

We see everything we're searching for. And believe it's all been wrong. You try to read every word that comes from the tip of my tongue. You think I said them wrong.

What would you think of me If I took my words and run? You couldn't be the one.

(chorus) We couldn't mend glass into sand; and now the pleasure is all gone. Look where you stand and lie to defend What you don't want here anymore.

You'll see, there is more to me than words. More than it seems. More than I'll show. You'll read every word from the tip of my tongue. You'll see it's never "goodbye".

    General CommentYet another one about a relationship... the lines "you try to read every word that comes from the tip of my tounge..." I can easily relate to as I had a girlfriend that used to analyze everything I said, and then would take it the wrong way. As for the "we couldn't mend glass into sand... and now the pleasure is all gone," something happened that couldn't be resolved and fixed and it more or less ruined things... dunno, just what it seems to me...

    General Comment"We couldn't mend glass into sand."
    Glass is made up OF sand, naturally, so mending glass into sand would do the reverse - break up. The song is about a relationship, but the two involved don't know when to give up. They "meet every night in broken hope" in an attempt to work out their problems, but they fail miserably. I think the writer is placing most of the fault on the girl, saying she turns around everything he says, including "goodbye," to mean something else and doesn't really ALLOW him to leave. Only if he gives up talking and just runs, can he get out.

    General CommentActually this seems to be about the frustration on sexual pressure. You see, his girlfriend wants to make their relationship sexual, but he still has qualms, I don't know, maybe it's his first time or something. He feels as if she treats him as an object, when he wants something meaningful from their relationship. But they, who am I to judge.

    General CommentIt's all interpretation; most writer keep the lyrics somewhat vague in order for everyone to make their own implications about it and be able to relate it. Of course, the song isn't totally random, and judging by the lyrics, it probably is about a failed relationship. But hey, why must we go out of our way to analyze its contents? It's a gripping song, full of emotion and musical superiority and that's all the matters. Bravo Shun!
