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.

    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.

    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 feel like this song is about a hurting revenge. The one who's been hurt feels like she can't live without her love, but at the same time, she despises him to death. Her world is ending, and she doesn't know the reason for her being there any longer. He was her only gate, and it was abruptly shut on her. "in silence, i hold on to you and i"--what they once had together, she holds onto the wonderful, tasteful lie. The beautiful thing that she believed they had, and it was maliciously ended. She wants that lie back; she wants that fantasy world to stay alive, and she wants to kill him and love him at the same time.
    This is the meaning it gave me.

    My meaning? I feel like she's been burned, like many of us have been. So here is my example of what I think the song means.
    Example:.
    Say a person puts a couple of years into a relationship that they thought was going somewhere. Kisses are exchanged, with I love you's, and probably talk of marriage. Then one day you find out that the person you trusted with your heart has been doing nothing but lying to you, the entire time. You'll probably break down, the relationship will break down, and it will be over. While the offender moves on, you're hoping they'll return. You'll spend months, or years hoping that this happens, asking "why? " until finally all that's left of the offender is an empty spot, with a name. When you've wised up, and if he ever tries to come back, you know better, because ever word the offender says is now a "lie. " period.

    I think it's about love to another who doesn't return the love. They have spent time together, while love growing in one and standing still in the other, until that someone finally decides that they want to "move on". Can that someone find what they're searching for? Why wouldn't they let the "fire" of love burn the "ice" of their fears and doubts?
    I think that's what it means to me since I had the exact thing happen to me. I still hope they find their way back home.
