Your love's faceless, she leads you on and on
Your wine's tasteless
She leaves you sleeping with your ghosts
Sleeping with your ghosts

It holds you tight, between these lines
It holds you tight
It holds you tight, between these lines
It holds you tight

Did the fires rip through your town
Did you wait for rain to drown your sorrow
In the light your hurt concealed
In the bed your soul revealed
I'm sleeping with your ghosts
Sleeping with your ghosts

It holds you tight, between these lines
It holds you tight
It holds you tight, between these lines
It holds you tight

You walk cross these fields in solitude
The sting of your tears forestalls you
This world lies in fear and waiting
Just open your eyes it's there for the taking

It's holds you tight
But it's your right
But it's your right

Hear the wind through the trees
Feel the tide of the sea
See the world at morning light
Feel my heart beat tonight
Over sea and over land
Feel life slip through your hands
I'll raise it up for you to see
But don't waste your breath on me
Don't waste your breath on me

    General CommentI think it is about a girl that is stuck in a mire of grief and fear and can't live a normal life. I think that is what "it" refers to. Don't waste your breath on me - use your energy to take back life and start living again.
    Great song.
