Sadly, I walk around this place on the shells of eggs
My shoulders are cold
I put it off for so long, I put it off
And know I've got to live with what I made
Forever

What was stolen from us
Now is forever lost
Just because we'll never pay the ransom
What was taken from me
I will never regain just because
We'll never pay the ransom

I'll become like the desert wind
And I'll drink all the gin
Shriveled up under desert lights
Eaten up in the night
I can't keep this up much longer without
Needing more from you
I need more

Wasted with the rhythm
Angry at the melody
How did you stay so sweet?
Cause you were my ally once
You were my confidante
I need somebody close
To be close to
Forever

What was stolen from us
Now is forever lost
Just because we'll never pay the ransom
What was taken from me
I will never regain
Just because we'll never pay the ransom
Just because we'll never pay the ransom

    Sounds to me like a relationship with potential that was supposed to amount to more was destroyed, but both are too prideful to admit they want it back:

    What was stolen from us
    now is forever lost
    just because we'll never pay the ransom

    And he blames himself for letting it go so long, and ending it in the first place:

    I put it off for so long, i put it off
    and now i've got to live with what i made
    forever

    And is coming around and admitting what it meant to him in the first place:

    Eaten up in the night
    i can't keep this up much longer without
    needing more from you
    i need more

    And realizing what he had:

    How did you stay so sweet? Cause you were my ally once
    you were my confidante
    i need somebody close
    to be close to
    forever

    Agree/disagree any other ideas?
