I hear a sound
A sound above my head
Distant sound of thunder
Moving out on the moor

Blackbirds flew in
And to the cooling towers
I'll pack my bags
Thinking of one of those hours
With you
Waiting for you

My god
It takes an ocean of trust
In the Kingdom of Rust

I long to feel
Some beauty in my heart
As I go searching
Right to the start

The road back to Preston
Was jutted out in snow
As I went looking
For that stolen heart
For you
Waiting for you

My god
It takes an ocean of trust
Takes an effort, it does
My god
It takes an ocean of trust
It's in the Kingdom of Rust

Ohh, in the Kingdom of Rust

I long to feel
That wince in my heart
As I went looking
I couldn't stop
Now I'm
Waiting for you

Ooohh

I know
It takes an ocean of trust
In the Kingdom of Rust

    Sounds like its about the character in the song staying true to the woman he left at home and vice versa.

    - these lyrics suggest more of a decision making process to me, it sounds like the singer decides to search for a person he once loved, and from the chorus suggests that it takes alot of trust in himself to make the decision to look for this person in a world where everything changes, the word rust suggests change, aging etc. Where his decision could backfire, it is difficult to trust his own instinct, however he does so, as he longs for the beauty and wince in his heart.

    I could be totally wrong, just my personal interpretation :) xxx
