The rhythm drives forward the eternal anguish as he uses lyrics suggesting that he can still feel the traces of Love subjected in the Pain. The women of his life had left his sight, forcing him to shed his tears. In the songs first half, he describes the strings with which the love was connected. They could share their dreams together, with the touch of kiss, symbolizing the romanticism.

He croons in the first half of the song. She is his ride, and she defines his destiny, his will to live, and his stresses immensely.
