I got close
To your skin
While you were sleeping
I taste the
Salt on
Your hands

I reached out
To touch you
The morning light disarms you
Won't you let me
In?

Chorus:
Ohhhhhhh
How long till your surrender?
Ohhhhhhh
How long till your
Surrender?
It's a long way
For heart break
Let your heart wait and bleed
Ohhhhhhh
How long till your surrender to me?

I've become your shadow
I'd love, but don't know
How to
I'm always lost for words
You look like a thousand suns
I wanna be the only one
Left when your day is done

** Chorus

I can't have you close
So I become a ghost
And I watch you
I watch you
Maybe if you stay
We could die this way
But I won't stop you
I won't stop you

** Chorus

    I interpret this song as a man who is in a relationship with a girl. He cares deeply about her, and wants the best for her. She refuses to let him be as close to her as he would like. She says she loves him, but won't show him any affection. He just wants an answer, does she really love him? He won't stop her from moving on.
