Silhouette Lyrics

I'm tired of waking up in tears
'Cause I can't put to bed these phobias and fears
I'm new to this grief I can't explain
But I'm no stranger to the heartache and the pain

The fire I began is burning me alive
But I know better than to leave...

    "I'm tired of waking up in tears
    Cause I can't put to bed these phobias and fears" this could be talking about someone with anxiety or heartbroken/ upset.

    "I'm new to this grief, I can't explain but I'm no stranger to, the heartache and the pain" this could mean someone who is/ was depressed falling for someone or getting their hopes too high.

    "The fire I began is burning me alive
    But I know better than to leave and let it die" this sounds like a reference to his other song 'Embers' where it talks about not letting the fire die (fire being the 'spark' you feel with someone)

    "I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?" this person feels so empty and alone they dont know what to feel or do at this point

    "I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own but the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone" this person has been heartbroken so many times that theyre afraid to move on and feel the same way again

    "So I watch the summer stars to lead me home" it sounds like this person is really upset

    "I'm sick of the past I can't erase
    A jumble of footprints, and hasty steps I can't retrace" they dont know where the relationship went wrong or what they did.


    "The mountain of things I still regret
    Is a vile reminder that I would rather just forget (No matter where I go)" theyd rather forget what they did wrong or that the relationship happened in the first place"

    *Chorus*

    "Cause I walk alone (No matter where I go)" this person feels so alone even with other people around them

    "...Is it over yet? Will I ever smile again?...Is it over yet? Will I ever love again?" this person is not sure that theyll ever find love again
