Letting The Cables Sleep Lyrics


You in the dark
You in the pain
You on the run
Living a hell

Living your ghost
Living your end
Never seem to get in the place that I belong
Don't want to lose the time
Lose the time to come

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

You in the sea
On a decline
Breaking the waves
Watching the lights go down
Letting The Cables Sleep

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it

If heaven is on the way
We'll wrap the world around it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

I'm a stranger in this town
I'm a stranger in this town

If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way
I'm a stranger in this town
I'm a stranger in this town

Letting The Cables Sleep
  • This about a close friend of lead singer Gavin Rossdale who had the HIV illness, but didn't tell anyone for 6 months because was ashamed. When Gavin found out, he felt real bad that his friend didn't feel comfortable talking about it, and wrote this about breaking the silence. (thanks, davey - leeds, England)
  • The "cables" refer to power cables. "Letting the cables sleep" means turning off the electricity and taking a rest.
  • In the video, if you look close enough, Gavin Rossdale is wearing a ring on his left hand. I took it as him being married and visiting a girl he used to (and supposedly now doesn't) have feelings for. They end up having sex, and realize they still want to be together, but are too afraid to tell each other. The girl just leaves before she says something she will regret. Overall, it's a retrospective view of a relationship. (thanks, Live Freak - Beirut, Lebanon)
  • If you analyze the video, you see that when they touch there is color. As their hands touch, his world is tinted with her color. And when he smears paint on the walls, the colors are similar to the colors she wears, displaying a sense of longing. "Whatever you say is alright..." but she can't speak, adding some depth to the lyrics, and as she leaves she is signing to him that she's sorry. On the street you see that the bassist for Bush is playing on a corner, which is peculiar because a bass isn't really a solo instrument. The effects of color and their integration with the lyrics gives a great deal of meaning. (thanks, Carlos - NYC, NY)
