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 CommentThe first verse uses the iceberg as a metephor for how she feels inside before meetign the guy or whoever she's singing to. Before she met him, she was as cold inside as an iceberg. The water aroudn her was free and generally (not being frozen and all) warmer. In the second verse, she's met him and she describes their relationship as two becoming one, flowing through each other "like water". (And hence warmer ... this is where "the fire fades away" is derived later on in the song) the rest of the song is about him going away and hence the warmth. "The fire fades away" means he fades away. There realtionship fades away. On a seperate note You're CLOSE ENOUGH to see that you'r on the OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLd to me, is some kind of oxymoron. Clever ;)
