The mighty continents divided
For a second time in all history
They found themselves just floating
Free from all responsibility
Without the weight of being whole
Some flew seaward all on their own
But if you want something back
All the things that got cracked
When i felt like you lied to me
And all the million mistakes
And the kicks in the face
But i don't want you to die in me
So when you say what you want
That you need what you got
Don't forget to be kind to me

Now here's an apple with a tougher skin
While you've got your pretty scales and fins you say
See all the things that i can do
So perfectly my body grew but in

All the time you felt so free
Did you forget how much you once loved me
And if you want something back
All the things that got cracked
When i felt like you lied to me
And all the million mistakes
And the kicks in the face
But i don't want you to die in me
So when you say what you want
That you need what you got
Don't forget to be kind to me
I don't want you to die in me

    General CommentI am just starting to listen to Mirah and this is, by far, my favorite song. i was also curoius as to what others thought it meant. i do agree about it pertaining to love but i , as well, see it a little differently. here goes...

    i relate this song to my current situation. both these people care about each other sooo much...they know each other so well it's as if no matter what happens they will still be together (whether they are still with each other or are broken up). He needs her:

    "So when you say what you want
    That you need what you got
    Don't forget to be kind to me"

    and because they know eachother so well he is starting to, in a sense, take advantage of her & take her for granted, and she is just saying...don't forget about me - be nice!

    she says she feels like she has been lied to and this triggers me to believe she is about to break up with him. because she knows how much he needs her...by breaking up she doesnt want him 'to die' b/c of her.

    i dont know...but this is what i think. more people comment please!!!
