They've been carving your name out in stone
Building stairways to lead you home
Know there's room up above,
I can tell you my love
That I won't let you go

There's a place in my heart where my courage is kept
And I'm keeping it there 'til my mind is at rest
It's the one bit of power that I still have left in me

Now this room is like a cage
I've been stuck in here for days
Searching deep inside my mind
Just to find a better place
And I'm waiting for you to pick up the pieces and move along

There's a place on a street in a town that I know
Where the earth doesn't move and the grass doesn't grow
There's a chill in the air that goes straight to your bones
I've got my hands in the ground and I'm digging you up

Now this room is like a cage
I've been stuck in here for days
Searching deep inside my mind
Just to find a better place
And I'm waiting for you to pick up the pieces and move along

When all colour starts to fade
And the cage begins to break
I give my body to the skies
Now I'm standing at the gates
And I'm waiting for you to pick up the pieces and move along

Now this room is like a cage
I've been stuck in here for days
Searching deep inside my mind
Just to find a better place
And I'm waiting for you to pick up the pieces and move along

    The guy is trapped and broken, he meets someone and he is waiting for them to respond to him by picking up the pieces of his broken life and ultimately helping him and them both to move on in life.
