Musing through memories,
Losing my grip in the grey.
Numbing the senses,
I feel you slipping away.
Fighting to hold on,
Clinging to just one more day
Love turns to ashes,
With all that I wish I could say.

I'd die to be where you are.
I tried to be where you are.

Every night, I dream you're still here.
The ghost by my side, so perfectly clear.
When I awake, you'll disappear,
Back to the shadows
With all I hold dear.
With all I hold dear.
I dream you're still here.
I dream you're still here.

Hidden companion
Phantom be still in my heart
Make me a promise that
Time won't erase us
That we were not lost from the start.

I'd die to be where you are
I tried to be where you are

(Repeat Chorus)

I dream you're still here,
Ever slightly out of reach.
I dream you're still here,
But it breaks so easily.
I try to protect you,
I can't let you fade.

I feel you slipping.
I feel you slipping away.

(Repeat Chorus)

But it breaks so easily.

    My InterpretationFor me it is someone remembering a departed or dying loved one. The pain of watching someone who is sick and fighting for every moment they can to live. You do all you can for them but in the end they are slowly dying. Slipping away.

    I can relate this to a few events in my life with ones that I lost. My grand mother, my mother, my first love....all died of a sickness that couldn't be controlled. Grandmother had brain cancer, mother had diabetes that she didn't monitor because she suffered from depression and didn't take care of herself, my first childhood love developed muscular distrophy. All of them I watched wither and decay before my eyes over the years.

    General CommentI feel like it's where she lost someone close to her like her mother or father.
    I am always afraid i'll lose my family one by one.
    So who ever still have their parents i hope you'll listen to me, I know some of you might say " nah your exaggerating.'' but love them ( your family ) before their gone, its better to hear it from me , a person who already lost one of her family members.

    My Interpretationthis song is dark :/
    it's definitely clear that she (because singer are female) lost someone important. this person already died ("ghost is suggest that he's dead") , she try to remember/ keep that person all she can ("I try to protect you,I can't let you fade"), even dream about that person every night.
    to understand this, think about your lover (if you're women) you believe that he's your true soul mate, you have a good time for sometime but then he been call up for War, 7 day later He's gone. that is the situation that you have to deal with.
