Swimming With Dolphins – Sunset, 1989 lyrics

You never heard me knocking on the door.
I found you balled up on your bathroom floor
You told me everything in your defense
And never understood the consequence

I won't console, when you have control,
Every time's the last time,
But I know you'll go and do it again.
Yeah, you'll do it again.

There was a halo resting above your head,
Then it slid down around your neck,
And I bet you thought I'd never find out,
Cuz you think you're so clever.

So, now we're all grown up and settled down
And you're the only one that's livin' in this ghost town
Try to keep in touch; at least pretend.
I know we'll always be fair-weather friends, 'til the end

If there's a cause, it's already lost.
Cuz I tried the last and you tossed me aside again,
But, it won't happen again...

There was a halo resting above your head,
Then it slid down around your neck,
And I bet you thought I'd never find out,
Cuz you think you're so clever.

    I'm not sure really what the song is about, but certain lyrics really struck me and I thought I would share my opinion as to what they mean. The Halo, for example, as it slid down around her neck. I imagined the Halo might represent a noose, however morbid it may seem. Also, generally when people are balled up on a bathroom floor, it's not a good thing. I was thinking either self-harm or suicide... hopefully I'm not totally off. The song sounds kind of bittersweet to me; maybe a friendship that is falling apart. Perhaps someone who has depression but won't confide in anyone or let anyone help them. Any more insight as to the meaning would be greatly appreciated!
