Cut open this heart
Now steal away my last real beat of hope
And forget what has happened
Remind me of living
And the lack of blood that has brought me to my knees
Withholding your mirrors down and stare
Hold on to my reflection
Now watch it bleed right through your hands
Now lie
Look me in my eyes and tell me I'm living now
Slowly one by one the leaves began to bury my head
You've realized this one thing
As you watch me fade
It begins to slip right beneath your hands
As you've realized this one thing
We begin to watch it bleed right through our hands
This will bleed through your hands
Hold this wound and pray for the strength to let me float away
For what lies ahead is hope
This will take my all
Your eyes they tell me as I drift away

    General CommentFrom the lyrics I'd guess that the song is about the writer who becomes depressed because of unrequited love - "cut open this heart, now steal away my last beat of hope"

    Whenever the writer sees the one he loves he is "reminded of living" but also of his pain - "the lack of blood that has brought me to my knees"

    I think suicide is involved. The writer kills himself and the person he loves has only his memory or "reflection" which bleeds through their hands when they think of the his death.

    The person whom the writer loves tries to lie and bring him back with false hope, but they realise anything they say is too late.

    The writer's loved one prays for the strength to forget about him. "pray for the strength to let me float away"

    The writer hopes for something good in the afterlife as he drifts away.
