"Life and Death" as written by and Gary Lightbody Garret Noel Lee....
Everything is sudden
Everything is suddenly alive
All these situations
Panic into such sweet calm
I will turn the light on
I will turn the light on everywhere
And I watch you lift your head up
Higher than it was before

No I don't know how it ends
For both of us
But why would you need to know the end my dear?
So don't crash into everything
To make your point
Let's get, get out of the way of us

I woke the lion
You woke the tiger
Inside, inside
Don't want to be this far
Don't want to be so far from you, from you

Now everything's forgiven
Now everything's forgotten, just look at you
You're shining like a falling
Shining like a falling sword

Nowhere don't know how it ends
For both of us
But why would you need to know the end, my dear?
So don't crash into everything
To make your point
Let's get, get out of the way of us

I woke the lion
You woke the tiger
Inside, inside
Don't want to be this far
Don't want to be so far from you, from you

I woke the lion
You woke the tiger
Inside, inside
Don't want to be this far
Don't want to be so far from you, from you

I don't want to be this far from you
I don't want to be this far from you
I don't want to be so far from you
I don't want to be this far from you
I don't want to be so far from you

I don't want to be so far from you
I don't want to be so far from you, from you
Don't want to be this far
Don't want to be so far from you, from you

    My InterpretationI feel this song is about new relationships, how the world feels suddenly alive, but also about feeling insecure in them, and the breakup that usually follows. How internal fears can get in the way of something that could be good and ruin everything.

    "Let's get, get out of the way of us"

    It just happened to me and I miss him dearly.

    "Don't want to be this far
    Don't want to be so far from you"

    I intentionally left the door open though... so who knows where it might end?

    "Nowhere don't know how it ends
    For both of us
    But why would you need to know the end, my dear?
    So don't crash into everything
    To make your point
    Let's get, get out of the way of us"

    I made my point but I wish I didn't crash into everything like I did, getting in the way of us.
