The Great Divide Lyrics

Play "The Great Divide"
on Amazon Music

Carry me all through the night
I am the last light fading
Leave all the lost souls behind
Show me the silence breaking
And when you're lost and out of time
I will be right here waiting
And when your dreams return to life
I'll be forever...

    Theres an episode on Game of Thrones where Daenerys meets her dead ex husband, and he tells her he's been waiting in limbo (basically) for her. That's kind of what this song reminds me of.

    He loves someone enough to wait for them before crossing over to heaven. He'll keep their faith alive and pray for them. The person he's referring to believes in God but somehow fell off the track ("And I'll keep your faith alive") The person he's talking to no longer believes in the things they used to, probably because they've been lost in the dark or living a life of bad decisions. It doesn't make them a bad person, just that they're making bad choices.

    And I'll stay for you
    As we cross the great divide--->>>
    He'll stay left behind or in limbo until they can both cross over together.

    He's very devoted to his loved one. Beautiful song!

    Well I think it's addiction talking to him. In the song it mentions that it takes many forms, alcohol, drugs etc. in the chorus, it's letting him know that it provides comfort for him. And that they'll always meet in the end. The lyrics in the verses say to bury the wounds deep inside, leave the souls and past behind. "I will be right here waiting". "So I'll wait for you".

    These lyrics are saying come with me and stay. Or he's talking to his girlfriend saying come over and lets try again.
