Other Side of the World

For Tuesday, January 13: Other Side of the World by KT Tunstall (2009). 

Over the sea and far away, 
She's waiting like an iceberg,
Waiting to change but she's cold inside,
She wants to be like the water. 

All the muscles tighten in her face.
Buries her soul in one embrace.
They're one and the same, 
Just like water. 

And the fire fades away,
Most of everyday
Is full of tired excuses,
But it's too hard to say. 
I wish it were simple, 
But we give up easily.
You're close enough to see that
You're the other side of the world to me. 

On comes the panic light,
Holding on with fingers and feelings alike
But the time has come
To move along. 


Can you help me? 
Can you let me go? 
And can you still love me
When you don't see me anymore?
