Salt And The Sea Lyrics

Could it be I was the one that you held so deep in the night
On the back staircase you fell to your knees with tears in your eyes
All that you suffered, all the disease
You couldn't hide it, hide it from me
All alone scared in your room,...

    It's the avenue, the person that gets you started down the road to destruction. It seems like help at first, but what it comes down to is a misguided hopelessness.

    I think that he is talking about a girl who he fell in love with. He broke her heart and she almost couldn’t handle it. This relationship is beginning to cause the artist anxiety, this is The Who that he is speaking of when he is talking about nobody being home. All he wants is to be friends with the girl again, he is even willing to take the blame for everything that caused their relationship to fall apart hence “if you need a villain just give me a name.” The whole gist is that if he could just be friends with this girl again, his mental state would be much better, medicine isn’t going to fix him, just restoring the relationship.
