According to one member of the Silent Sanctuary band, “Hiling” expresses love for the girl he had an excellent feeling for until he realised she was no longer there because she had moved away. It's difficult to fall in love with someone who can not even be yours. Mainly if you started as friends and then the feelings progressed into something you never expected to happen. Worse, you both know there's a chance, but you can't take it because you're afraid of losing your friendship with him and hurting anyone. You have no choice but to choose what is best and suitable. To keep it, and if it's genuinely meant, let time take its course.
