Burn it down till the embers smoke on the ground
And start new when your heart is an empty room
With walls of the deepest blue
Home space how it ages when you're away
Spring blooms and you find the love that's true
But you don't know what now to do
Cause the chase is all you know
And she stopped running months ago

And all you see is where else you could be
When you're at home
Out on the street
Are so many possibilities to not be alone

The flames and smoke climbed out of every window
And disappeared with everything that you held dear
And you she'd not a single tear for the things that you didn't need
Cause you knew you were finally free

Cause all you see is where else you could be
When you're at home
Out on the street
Are so many possibilities to not be alone

And all you see is where else you could be
When you're at home
There, on the street,
Are so many possibilities to not be alone

    I think the meaning to this song is a boy/girl who is alone looking for his/herself and some one special to love plus looking for a new page in life/ a new beging to that life that he/she messed up and dosent know how to fix
