Every word you're saying is a lie
Run away my dear
But every sign will say your heart is dead

Bury all the memories
Cover them with dirt
Where's the love we once had
Our destiny's unsure
Why can't you see what we had
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Closer to insanity
Buries me alive
Where's the life we once had
It cannot be denied
Why can't you see what we had?
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

You run away
You hide away
To the other side of the universe

Where you're safe from all that hunts you down

But the world has gone
Where you belong
And it feels to late so you're moving on
Can you find your way back home?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Every word you're saying is a lie.

    I think she is talking about a love that was once had which has come to an end. He appears to have moved on and is denying having love or memories for her but she knows deep within his heart he still thinks about her. Maybe like he is married or with another and they had some lusty affair. He had to make things right and deny her (sharon the singer), so he acts so cold. The other side of the universe is his other life.

    I think its" being madly in love with someone that was passionly in love (fire) with you but has become very distant (ice) & hopeing they will come back (let the fire burn the ice).

    A love fading. Fire and ice they are now. But the fire wishes to warm the ice, and still holds on to the memory of each other. The ice is hiding from pain. And they are wondering why. Idk, i'm making this up xd

    Sharon dey adel .. This is a beauty and one for which only cherished forever until i die .. It's touching captivating and shows how beautifull the womens heart is whose longing to distance away from what is a decaying world around is external metaphor to what his infidelity has now caused her and she's hoping paradise away up in the heavens will come to her and grace her and take away from this life and into the very romance she shard with her love but will he turn to her ... As she would to him ... Dillon

    This song mekes me think about hell and the paradise... Someone who loved with all his heart and suddenly this heaven destroyed ... And all turned to black ... Even if he tried to fight it and bring back the sun in his life its too late... The hell inside him was burned him and make him stand his ground and face the betrayal!
