All I Want Lyrics

nothing's so loud
as hearing when we lie
the truth is not kind
and you've said neither am i
but the air outside so soft is saying everything

all i want is to feel this way
to be this close, to feel the same
all i want is to...

    I felt the song conjures up ideas of a sinister nature I belive in the lyrics and the video its self that there are hidden meanings of an unspoken affair but not with a woman but possibly a man and an underlying satanic message is being pushed as well.

    That's just silly. Glen said the meaning of the song is simply about contentment and holding on to that kind of moment.

    I think this song is about an affair. They know that it's all a lie but they're just savoring the moment they have. They know that truth that they could never be, but they doesn't care. All they want is the borrowed time they have. A very, very good song with a cryptic lyrics. really one of the best songs I've heard.

    This song is about two people who are involved, most likely sexually and he doesn't want to lie and say he loves her when he doesn't. But, she feels he's being unkind when he is actually just trying to be honest. He wants and longs for the intimacy they share, but the truth is always there in the wind.....he knows it won't last but he doesnt care about that...he likes just this moment...and wishes it could just be that way with no worries.
