It's that ancient love
That you won't outgrow
It's the fee you pay
It's the debt you owe
Is that subtle way
That you throw me down
I am inches above
The dust on the ground

I await your call
I await your crown
Lets change our roads
And chase them all around
Is that subtle way
You throw me down
I am inches above
The dust on the ground

And all is quiet
All is quiet now
And all is silent
All is silent now
Now I don't hide it
I don't hide it now

It's that ancient love
That just moves along
And there's an itch so slight
Even when you're gone
Well I met you right
But I kept your wrong
And I must wait untill I've found the ground that you are walking on

And all is quiet
All is quiet now
And all is silent
All is silent now
Now I don't hide it
I don't hide it now
Now I don't hide it
I don't hide it now

    Wanting someone so badly. Wanting their all, to give them yours. And you keep allowing him or her to push you off.. Because you love him. And you'll wait as long as you have to.

    When you didn't realize you did everything wrong until it's too late, and you can't take it back because they don't want you back and you'll never be forgiven. All is quiet. All is silent.

    When you met the love of your life at the wrong time, and you dont treat her like you really wanted to...

    I feel like the ancient love he's talking about is a person he's loved for a long time, but they don't repay the love and it hurts him. The rejection is putting him almost at his breaking point, but he loves that person too much to give up. And i think he's saying he'd gladly fall on the ground they walk upon for their love in return, so that he wouldn't have to hide his love anymore.
