When you have no one
no one can hurt you
when you have no one
no one can hurt you

In the corner there is light
that is good for you
and behind you,I have warned you
there are awful things

Will you miss me when I burn
and will you eye me with a longing?
It is longing that I feel
to be missed or to be real

When you have no one
no one can hurt you
When you have no one
no one can hurt you

Will you miss me when I burn
and will you close the others' eyes
it would be such a favor
if you would blind them

There is absence,there is lack
there are wolves here abound
you will miss me
when I turn around

When you have no one
no one can hurt you
when you have no one
no one can hurt you

    My InterpretationI think this song is basically about dealing with a post breakup depression.

    "When you have no one, no one can hurt you"
    He finds comfort in, and accepts his solitude...basically knows its for the best.

    "In the corner there is light that is good for you
    and behind you,I have warned you there are awful things"
    He's thinking about finding new love, but still feels the pain of his previous relationship.

    "Will you miss me when I burn and will you eye me with a longing?
    It is longing that I feel to be missed or to be real"
    Wondering if she is thinking about him. Wonders if he is missed as much as he misses her.

    "Will you miss me when I burn, and will you close the others' eyes
    it would be such a favor if you would blind them"
    This basically deals with jealousy of lost love. He doesn't want to see or hear about "his" former girlfriend dating anyone so soon.

    "There is absence,there is lack,there are wolves here abound
    you will miss me when I turn around"
    Basically deals with the loneliness and the realization that there may not be any relief from his misery or replacement of what was lost.

    General CommentThese are the things you tell yourself when you are lonely and isolated. To make yourself feel better, you try to think of reasons why it might be better to be alone (When you have no one/no one can hurt you). Of course, none of it is true. Human beings are social creatures in need of love and friendship.
