My hands are trembling
And my eyes are on fire
This house is crumbling
Left brain, left out, on the wire

You make me happy
You magnify my better half
You make me certain
Though all I have today is your photograph

My past is perilous
But each scar I bear sings
Monuments to where I have been
And melodies to where I am going

You make me happy
You magnify my better half
You make me certain
Though all I have today is your photograph

When will I see you again?
Still-life can only go so far
I need you in front of me
Saying my name
Saying to me...
"I want you the way you are
You, the way you are"

You make me happy
You magnify my better half
You make me certain
Though all I have today is your photograph
You make me happy

    This song is beautiful.

    It means that you want to be with someone so bad, but at this point in time it isn't really possible. Because they're unattainable right now, and you're somewhat like a secret admirer.
    "Though all I have today is your photograph"
    You can see them but you can't touch them.
    They make you happy and bring out the best in you,
    but you can't be with them right now.
    And you're willing to put behind the terrible past relationships, and love again, because of them
