I Promise You Walls
Shiny Toy Guns Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Loneliness
Is more than we'll ever feel
Blind as you are
Watching everything
When we die
Faith is lost
Once again
Taking hold of all we are

Who says we die?
Before we live
I promise you walls of grace
To carry on
When we're lost
We'll find a way

Loneliness
Or should we say something more?
Oceans arise
Washing over me
Cold company
Dark shades of harmony
Chasing the lies no one believes

Who says we die?
Before we live
I promise you walls of grace
To carry on




When we're lost
We'll find a way

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Shiny Toy Guns's song "I Promise You Walls" address the theme of loneliness and the loss of faith that may occur when confronted with this emotion. The first stanza suggests that loneliness is an intense and unrelenting feeling that we can never fully comprehend. The line "blind as you are watching everything" implies that even when we are surrounded by others, loneliness can make us feel invisible and detached from the world around us. The next line "faith is lost once again" suggests that loneliness can become cyclical and we may lose hope in ever escaping its grasp. Nonetheless, the last line "taking hold of all we are" is perhaps a reminder that even in the face of despair, we must hold onto ourselves and our own sense of identity.

Who's here in 2020, respect to those who remember this, back in 2007 my sister introduced me to them, and it's crazy how life is man, we as humans have to be the best versions of ourselves, not let the negativity around us bring us down, behind every storm is a Sunshine, so never lose faith

I love Shiny Toy Guns. I just bought We Are Pilots to discover this song as a bonus track. It reminds me of the song in Harry Potter when he puts the egg under water. It's just completely beautiful what Carah Faye does.
