Silhouettes Lyrics

It's hard letting go
I'm finally at peace but it feels wrong
Slow I'm getting up
My hands and feet are weaker than before

And you are folded on the bed where I rest my head
There's nothing I can see, darkness becomes me

[Chorus]
But...

    In my own personal opinion, in a way I think that the song has many meanings and one is when you get so attached to someone or something and you find it so hard to let go of the person or thing as it goes ''It's hard letting go,
    I'm finally at peace, but it feels wrong''. I think this song explains the feelings of someone who is hurt and tried to get away from the feelings that the person/thing has given them, well that is the feeling that this song gives me each time I listen to it. As they say in the song ''There's nothing that I'd take back,
    But it's hard to say there's nothing I regret'' as if to indicate that they are happy with how it started but disappointed or upset by the way it turned out towards the ending! This is just my personal opinion as that is what I'm currently going through at the moment so maybe I think this because that's the way my mind and emotions picks up the lyrics, one by one.

    I think its about how you think that you are safe but you just can't get rid of the feeling that you are constantly being watched and are never safe and that one thing or another is always after you. In catching fire Katniss, even in the comfort of the woods still, after her talk to snow,she feels that anything she does will be watched and interpreted and will be somehow used against her. She now, like Haymitch Abernathy, feels she can never be safe from CoriolANUS Snow. She feels she can never be truly alone. I just love this song and I think it can explain a part of everyone. But remember you are safe, live happy! :)

    Since this song is from the Catching Fire soundtrack and is played in the credits at the end of the movie, I believe it has something sorta to do with it.
    I feel like this song is simply about nightmares and how powerful they are, and how when bad things they come back to haunt you in your dreams, kind of like the nightmares that Katniss and Peeta experienced.
    "A thousand silhouettes dancing on my chest. No matter where I sleep, you are haunting me." This line tells a lot about the song. No matter how much Katniss tried to sleep, it didn't work, her nightmares were too powerful, and kept haunting her. She keeps seeing the silhouettes, or the events in her nightmares, dancing around her.
    "It's hard letting go, I'm finally at peace, but it feels wrong." In this line, It's when Katniss wakes up from her nightmares, she knows she's safe, but she keeps screaming and worrying for no apparent reason. It's hard to let go of something imaginary, but yet so real. To her, she is not at peace.
    "My hands and feet are weaker than before. And you are folded on the bed where I rest my head." I feel like this is Peeta's situation. He, too, is overcome by nightmares of the Games. He feels weak when he wakes up, but when he sees Katniss, he's at peace and rests, because his nightmares are about losing her.
    "But I'm already there, I'm already there, wherever there is you, I will be there too." This is both of their situations. When one of them wakes up from their nightmares, they are scared, but if the other one is there, they know they are safe, because they have each other. Katniss feels safer when Peeta is there, and Peeta feels safer when Katniss is there. Together they help each other through the night.
