Honey You - Lyrics

There is a song by The Dead South called Honey you. Wondering what do you think the lyrics mean.

These are the lyrics:

Honey you are a rock and I am your land and we will grow. Before the sun dries us up and turns us to sand. Do you remember when the ocean went mad and we were to blame? We ran to another world with lives to save. They were the ones who could fly. They flew so high. Then I looked into your eyes never understanding why. You would never run with me while the world is turning upside down and all around and we are watching those birds in the sky from the mountainside and you... Honey you are a rock and I am your land and we will grow. Before the sun dries us up and turns us to sand. Do you remember when the ocean went mad and we were to blame? We ran to another world with lives to save.

Here is the video:

Maybe their love was almost lost and nobody really understood what they felt for each other. And maybe they didn't understand themselves... Maybe they thought falling in love was not meant to be, that they couldn't fly like others could...

And they both held back, cause falling in love can be frightening...

And they remained spectators of this thing called love....

Honey you are a rock and I am your land and we will grow. Before the sun dries us up and turns us to sand. Do you remember when the ocean went mad and we were to blame?

Maybe the lyrics have the following meaning:
You're a rock, I can depend on you,
And I'm your land means and we will grow, I stretch out my love for you and our love will grow.
And our love will last until our dying day....
Maybe the relationship was tumultuous in the beginning, that's why the ocean went mad.
