Where The Story Ends Lyrics

Trying not to lose my head but I have never been this scared before
Tell you what I'll do instead, lay my body down on the floor
To forget what I've done, silhouette til the good lord come
All we know is distance
We're close and then we run

    I agree that this is about the fear of not knowing. Personally, I've been in love with this boy for over a year now, which is longer than I've ever liked someone. The fear of not knowing is painful to bear with. But knowing that he does not return my affections might just kill me. I'm just naturally a sad person, deeply depressed, and his mere existence makes me happy, and that kind of heartbreak would make me do unbelievable things out of grief.

    I think it has to do with fear of not knowing. They get close but run away at the last minute. It makes sense about this being about his wife and afraid of what will go wrong. He's looking at the beginning of his relationship but seeing the worst outcome. He only knows distance because he keeps himself there. Protect yourself. But he knows that he has to get past it "kiss away the distance"- kiss her and accept the possibilities.

    I feel this is about breaking out with someone. The dumper knows the dumpee will hate getting dumped hence the "I know you'll hate this part". And the story ending is there relationship.

    I heard this was about his wife. When they got married he was feeling bad about it, like if it didn't work out.

    i think it could be about someone who maybe left home (as in ran away or just moving out). maybe the mother was sick("scared, scared to see your mother") and the person was afraid to see her cause they may not have gotten along very well but the singer is trying to get them to like, burn their bridges and get over it, although he may be nervous too.

    I think that the song is about someone lost.Not knowing where to go or what to do.I sat in my room thinking about killing myself until this song came on the radio.When I heard it for the first time I cried but then realized that killing myself was not worth it.So this song is worth a lot to me and i have a tattoo on my back of a girl laying in a field,with polio and at the top says safe a life.So i thank Fray a lot for this song it saved my life.
