Your secret's out, but you don't wanna know what it was all about
You close your eyes, you are warm and wrapped inside of your disguise

    Grey snow, falling on your window in the night

You let me in, I thought this sleeping dream was ready to begin
But then you froze, and shut me out and left me naked in the snow

Oh, in your darkest dreams
No one ever wants you, no one ever needs you
Oh, it's a cold, bitter, broken lie
No one ever knew you

I have listened to a lot of your music lately, and love what i have heard till now. This song however, i can't figure out! The melody is lovely, but the text I'm having a hard time understanding. I'm from Norway, so perhaps it's just my English that sucks. So, what is the deeper meaning behind the text(lyrics)?

Dear Nikolai the viking and others that might read this, The song seems to be about a person who has difficulty accepting friendship or even love. This is implied by ``You let me in [...] But then you froze'', the person sung about let someone come close and just when that someone thought the relation was about to begin ey brokeĀ things of. Later it is implied ey can't let others come close because ey believes no person wants hir. Josh Woodward seems to describe a person who is afraid of commitments and laments the fact that no-one could come close to comfort hir. This is especially lamentable because this fear is unfounded, ``bitter, broken lie.'' Best, PS. ey = she/he. Hir = him/her
