Over the sea and far away
She's waiting like an iceberg
Waiting to change
But she's cold inside
She wants to be like the water

All the muscles tighten in her face
Buries her soul in one embrace
They're one and the same
Just like water

The fire fades away
Most of everyday
Is full of tired excuses
But it's to hard to say
I wish it were simple
But we give up easily
You're close enough to see that
You're the other side of the world to me

On comes the panic light
Holding on with fingers and feelings alike
But the time has come
To move along

The fire fades away

Can you help me?
Can you let me go?
And can you still love me
When you can't see me anymore?

The fire fades away

    General Commentthis song to me is about a long term relationship, she's blaming herself for being cold inside and shes wanting to change to save their relationship but they are gradually becoming further apart and they are both close enough to see it... they are giving up on their relationship too easily, she wants to be free again but still wants to be loved, maybe she doesnt know what she wants... but to her it feels like the person is on the other side of the world, as they dont connect anymore
