4 Thoughts and Song Meanings
And she is very happy
So the narrator accepts that
And likes to see her living it up
Even tho he really wants to listen to her beautiful voice
he is now ok with just keeping the love away from her
He is in a place so lonly and cold
And he dreams about this amazing woman
Yet he stays strong and keeps all his feelings inside
I think that for some reason
The woman wudnt be happy with the guy
So hes saying he will stay isolated so that she can thrive
He loves her so much
And just loves seeing her happy
And wishes he can fuck her
But she wont put out.
Burying their love in the moondust means exactly that, the narrator must create an ugly scar on the face of the planet to conceal the truth, the song is about their tormoil about moving on.
By placing themselves on the moon the narrator is far away from the rest of man kind. They're isolated and they intend to stay that way. Mankind cannot get to them "nothing can breathe in this space" "Building this house on the moon" also nothing can live on the moon this furthers the idea of isolation. It is the narrators chosen prison.
They use their past memories of their loved one to reconcile in their own thoughts so that the narrator can finally find peace in his loneliness.
As previously mentioned, the narrator's affection for their loved one exceeds all else, precisely the reason why the narrator is willing to "bury their love" to see that their love is happy and well.
I believe this song to be a message to all that suffer a dilemma in their love life; to 'give the world' to your loved in exchange for your own.
Only those that you love the most will you find yourself burying your emotions for; so that you can ensure their wellbeing in spite of your own.
