Song Description

The tempo of the song gives it a feeling of uncertainty. The continuous changing chords switch up the mood quite often. The bridge is in half-time and incorporates bouncing strings. The initial feeling of this song sounds upbeat and happy. The minor chords of the chorus reveal a much more unsettled nature. The bridge turns up heat even more.

Story Behind the Song

I began this song in the winter. Everything I was writing lyrically and instrumentally that day was sounding very unoriginal. I had an idea about what I felt but I felt very confined by words. I felt the words were not explaining what I wanted to convey. The wintery weather seems to capture the feeling.

Lyrics

I feel confined to the words on a page stuck inside the walls of my cage.
I think this song could set me free or at least as free as I can be.
I'm trying hard to manage a thought and what I've got it ain't a lot.
All I can do is hope that you, you stay by me, just stay with me.

Its cold outside I can't remember my life.
All has changed but not today.
Will I come out of this alive?
Save me, but not like this, not like this.

The idea is rise and fall crunch it all before I hit a wall.
It's plain as day what's in motion brutal truth is worth knowing.
Rhyme and reason clouds my judgment and whatever I write feels stolen.
All I can do is have faith that you, you'll stand by me come close we'll see.

I can't describe the way I see your face.
The running lines through if I could capture you.
Wouldn't be the same as the way you look today, just stay.
Inspire me but not like this, not like this.
