i went to your bedroom to see you again
to miss you that much and its such a long time
i went to the aisle to marry your soul
to miss you that much

(chorus)
missing you broke my life
hoping that you feel the same
missing you broke my life
its all over now, you've killed me

Fear is compressed in the back of my stomach
the rust in my eyes from my corroded halo
i remember your smile,
distorted and pure
To hold you til' death.

    General CommentI think this song has a very deep and almost twisted meaning...
    I think it's basically about a guy remembering his girlfriend that commited suicide or something and he found her...
    And he wishes that he could remember her for the way she was when she was alive and happy but the image of her dead cold body is engraved on his mind and it's killing him...
    "i went to the aisle to marry your soul
    to miss you that much" - that part of the lyric to me means that when he went to the funeral, it totally haunted him and he realised that he wants no one apart from her and death won't stand in the way...like if he died too then they'd be together in soul... like heaven...
    "missing you broke my life
    hoping that you feel the same
    missing you broke my life
    its all over now, you've killed me" - this means that he is missing her so much that it is breaking him apart...and he hopes that wherever she is...she's missing him too... he believes that there is no point in anyhting anymore because she was his reason for living and now thats gone, it's killed him, he doesn't have a reason to wake up in the morning anymore...
    " Fear is compressed in the back of my stomach" - he wants to join her but is afraid to kill himself because of he is afraid of what awaits him..
    " i remember your smile,
    distorted and pure
    To hold you til' death." - this could be talking about when he found her or before that... like maybe there was a smile on her face when he found her but she was dead so it was all "distorted" and this memory will always remain with him till he dies...

    This is just what I get from the song... very amazing... InMe rule...
    Firefly is a strange title for the song...
