Deep inside your soul, there‘s a hole
You don‘t want to see
Every single day, what you say
Makes no sense to me
Even though I try
I can‘t get my head around you

Somewhere in the night, there‘s a light
In front of me
Heaven up above, with a shove
Abandons me
And even though I try
I fall in the river of you
You manage to bring me down too

All your faking
Shows you‘re aching

Every single day, what you say
Makes no sense to me
Letting you inside isn‘t right
Cause you‘ll mess with me
I never really know
What‘s really going inside you
I can‘t get my head around you

All your feeding
Shows you‘re bleeding

Deep inside your soul, there‘s a hole
You don‘t want to see
You‘re covering it up, like a cut
With the likes of me
You know I‘ve really tried
I can‘t do anymore about you

The cut‘s getting deeper
The hill‘s getting steeper
I guess I‘ll never know
What‘s really going on inside you
I can‘t get my head around you

    General CommentThis song really speaks to me now, It reminds me of me and my ex and how I was so into her, but she ended up being nothing like I imagined, and I loved her, so I tried to help her out. The song Self Esteem, used to describe our official break up, but now its like I broke up with her a second time... so this is what the song means to me...

    Deep inside your soul, there‘s a hole
    You don‘t want to see
    Every single day, what you say
    Makes no sense to me
    Even though I try
    I can‘t get my head around you

    This means that she is two faced, there is a hole inside her soul. She tells me how she wants to change and bla blah, but her actions dont match her words, hence it makes no sense to me.

    Somewhere in the night, there‘s a light
    In front of me
    Heaven up above, with a shove
    Abandons me
    And even though I try
    I fall in the river of you
    You manage to bring me down too

    At night when I try to sleep I know its all for the best but then I get so dow thinking about her, Heaven (peace and happiness) abandns me, and all I do is think about her and what she has done, so she brings me down too.

    All your faking
    Shows you‘re aching

    She isn't being herself, she acts differently towards different people to fit in. If you cant be yourself then you are obviously not happy with yourself.

    Every single day, what you say
    Makes no sense to me
    Letting you inside isn‘t right
    Cause you‘ll mess with me
    I never really know
    What‘s really going inside you
    I can‘t get my head around you

    She is manipulative, and I let her in before and she basically broke my heart and manipulated me to believe her bs, and it ruined my relationship with my best friend because he saw through her but because I was into her I let my emotions cloud my judgement. So from now on I can't let her in, because she'll bring me down.

    All your feeding
    Shows you‘re bleeding

    She basically feeds off he insecurities of other people and always twists things around to make it out like she is innocent, however all of this feeding shows she is bleding. It shows she is insecure herself, so she has to use other peoples to her advantage to try and cover up for it. However, its obvious that she is just trying to make her feel better about herself.

    Deep inside your soul, there‘s a hole
    You don‘t want to see
    You‘re covering it up, like a cut
    With the likes of me
    You know I‘ve really tried
    I can‘t do anymore about you

    I tried so damn hard to make her realize she needed to change some shit in her life or she would lose a lot of people close to her. But nstead she just tries to over it up instead of fixing it. Now I realize I have done all I can do, she is not going to change.

    The cut‘s getting deeper
    The hill‘s getting steeper
    I guess I‘ll never know
    What‘s really going on inside you
    I can‘t get my head around you

    This is me basically saying its only getting worse and I'm tired of trying to fix it for her. She isn't going to fix it, so I guess I will never know how she really is.

    That was long, but thats what it means to me.

    General Commentthis seems pretty self-explanatory; the singer doesnt understand someone. the someone is making bad decisions and the singer cant understand why.

    General Comment"I beg of me" should be "abandons me," "don't mess with me" should be "cause you'll mess with me," "feeling" = feeding," and "breathing = bleeding"
