|Death Cab for Cutie – The Ice Is Getting Thinner Lyrics||3 years ago|
|No I reckon its "floes under our feet", floes as in ice floes. It is in keeping with the whole metaphor of the song :)|
|Snow Patrol – Run Lyrics||3 years ago|
No, I honestly don't think this song has any relation at all to drugs and addiction.
"Light up, light up" Is merely saying, be happy again.
To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we said our long goodbyes
I nearly did
"I nearly did" means he nearly cried because he mentioned it makes it hard not to cry when they said good bye but he "nearly did".
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say
Is followed directly by:
We don't have time for that
All I want is to find an easier way
To get out of our little heads
So its saying why didn't you tell us to stop wasting our time? Its looking back on the relationship and wondering why they did what they did.
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done
Its just saying that she was the best thing in his life. And as mentioned above this song was written for a dying friend. Making the past tense and looking back at their lives becasue one of them is ending. Not drug related.
Have heart my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess
Especially this verse, it sounds like they have has problems in the past but now when they are confronted with the possible death, they want to spend the next few days together. And it will be "making up for all this mess"
I think you can look at it from the perspective or drugs and addiction but it makes more sense in another :)
