The fields are near and I wont trust the air with secrets
I can't stop holding this treasure in my arms
For all the water in the ocean could never turn
This world's lungs from black to white

Let them say. Let them say. Let them say what they please

You wont be leaving my arms ever. I promise you that.
Even if you want me to let go honey
Even if you want me to let go
You wont be leaving my arms ever. I promise you that.
Even if you want me to let go honey
Even if you say the things that make me want to lose you

We went on drinking, celebrating something
I looked at you and said that I'm forever yours
You looked at me and said oh the idea of being in love
The idea. the idea. of being forever yours.

You wont be leaving my arms ever. I promise you that
Even if you want me to let go honey
Even if you want me to let go
You wont be leaving my arms ever. I promise you that
Even if you want me to let go honey
Even if you say the things that make me want to lose you

Screaming from the inside of me, lonely and pleading phantasm
We only get what we see; gazing so desperately
Between the things that we fear; gazing so desperately
In love with illusions; were watching segregating illusions
Between the things that we see and the things that we fear
No, no, it wont make them disappear.

You wont be leaving my arms ever. I promise you that
Even if you want me to let go honey
Even if you want me to let go
You wont be leaving my arms ever. I promise you that
Even if you want me to let go honey
Even if you say the things that make me want to lose you

Even if you want me to let go honey...

    I think the meaning of this song is loving a girl who loves you but she doesn't believe she can or should feel love ("oh the idea of being in love, the idea the idea of being forever yours") either at all or specifically to you because of what people say hence the "let them say let them say let them say as they please. "

    I dont see how this is up for discussion is painfully obvious what it is about. Its about somone in love altho the other memeber is not even close to being in as love as them. They like the idea of love but are unable to feel the same way. Others see this and doubt the fact they have real potential. Towards the end it gets to the point the one in love realizes that you can create a situation that does not exist, and you can feel like your relationship is perfect altho you are creating false realities, becuase regardless of how much you love somone you cant make them love you back.
