Story Behind The Song

It is a song about someone who holds emotions inside (harbouring them) and doesn't know whether to let them out and be honest with the person he is falling for - will it be better to remain unrequited or risk it all and tell his feelings?

Harbouring these feelings like an ocean hides its pearls,
Like a little boy, afraid to tell the little girl,
And if I told these feelings, would the world be better off?
A stratosphere of emotion running wild?

I hear a world say spit it out,
I glimpse the blue behind the cloud,
Should I thank you for making me feel again?
So much to lose, but love to gain,
I?m scared to feel this all in vain,
Should I tell you or will it just bring you pain?

Keeping back these feelings like a whore pretends to love,
She?s enjoying it or so he thinks: is pretence really enough?
And if these growing feelings keep reducing me to tears,
There?s nothing else to do but take the bait?


Those feelings trapped, I?ve been a harbour,
I?ve kept it all inside,
But now they?re gonna burst the banks, I?m in two minds,
We can?t go back into the harbour,
If the words come spilling out?
