My world's on fire
My life's overwhelming
Just breathe
You're on the next train to life without me
Time had nothing left to show so we found out
A world on fire
A life overwhelming

Do you believe in the words you said to me
As you take away everything?

I can't believe what you're saying
So don't tell me
The words that kill, the words that kill
You're leaving

I spend my time thinking about you
Remember when we said that this would not end?
But now you're gone
I'm still right here without you
A world on fire
A life overwhelming
Just breathe

Do you believe in the words you said to me
As you take away everything?

I can't believe what you're saying
So don't tell me
The words that kill, the words that kill
You're leaving

So take back what you said
This would never end
The words that kill, the words that kill
You're leaving

I can't believe what you're saying
So don't tell me the words the kill
The words that kill

I can't believe what you're saying
So don't tell me
The words that kill, the words that kill
You're leaving

So take back what you said
This would never end
The words that kill, the words that kill
You're leaving

    My InterpretationHow I'm taking this song is based on what I'm actually going through right now.

    "My world's on fire
    My life's overwhelming
    Just breathe
    You're on the next train to life without me
    Time had nothing left to show so we found out
    A world on fire
    A life overwhelming"

    What he's saying here is that he's miserable and he's getting overwhelmed by it. She's easily moving on without him but he's still in love with her. The last two lines are saying how he's finally finding out how it feels to be miserable.

    "Do you believe in the words you said to me
    As you take away everything?"

    He's asking her if she really thinks that what she's saying to him is really true, and the second line is saying how when she left she took everything he had with her

    " I can't believe what you're saying
    So don't tell me
    The words that kill, the words that kill
    You're leaving"

    He can't believe the words that are coming out of her mouth so he's saying not to even tell him the words that "kill" him and that she's leaving him

    "I spend my time thinking about you
    Remember when we said that this would not end?
    But now you're gone
    I'm still right here without you
    A world on fire
    A life overwhelming
    Just breathe"

    He's saying to her (or imagining that he is) that all he does is think about her and does she remember when they said they'd be forever. The line "but now you're gone I'm still here without you" means that she's done with the relationship and is out but he still wants to be with her. Those last repeated lines show that he isn't over this whole depressing breakup

    Here they repeat the pre chorus and chorus which have the same meanings as before


    "So take back what you said
    This would never end
    The words that kill, the words that kill
    You're leaving"

    Here he's saying "Just take back all those "we'd be forever" times and words if you didn't mean them" and that him thinking of those times is what's tearing him up the most because obviously they aren't forever.

    This time around he repeats the chorus slowly and heartfelt without the last line "you're leaving" as if he's trying to convince her to stay

    Here he repeats the chorus as normal


    "So take back what you said
    This would never end
    The words that kill, the words that kill
    You're leaving"

    He repeats this one last time to kinda face it and when he says "You're leaving" for the last time he sounds really sad as if he's finally accepted the fact that she's gone

    Personally I can relate to this pretty much word for word and that's what my interpretation was based off of
