Dear angel of mine, yeah
Where do I start to express how I feel?
When love's gone blind
And all that I feel is what I hear.
Your words rip and tear
Through my heart so weak and pure.
Now I find myself
Wanting to die.

I bleed for the second time tonight
Holding the love that's in my mind.
If only my love could be with you
If only this pain, this pain died too.
So I break you away, away, away from me.
So I break you away, away, away from me.

As I sit here alone, oh
Just thinking about everything you said.
Well, you know since I'm alone
Well, maybe after all, I was better off dead
'Cause without you (without you)
My life's gone down, what do I do?
When I find myself wanting to die.

(chorus x2)

The strength that became
My enemy
The strength that became
My enemy
From my angel
To my enemy
And I don't know

Yeah, yeah

(chorus x2)

I'll break you away
(and all that's in my mind)
So break you away
(and all that's in my life)
So break you away, away, away from me
So break you away, away, away from me.
And I don't know.

(sincerely yours)

    General CommentI love this song. It seems like a girl broke up with a guy, and he still cares about her, so he plans on doing anything he can do to distance her from him to protect her. I think that's what the song is about, but it's very pretty and I adore it.

    General Commenti absolutely love this song. i cant believe nobody else posted. i think its about a girl who broke up with him for a second time and hes saying that hes sick of the feeling of heartbreak so hes considering "taking her out of his life." so to speak.

    General CommentYeah, he seems very depressed and sad and he feels as if he can't live without this girl.

    I really like this song.

    General CommentMy ex just played me this song last night, and I had to read the lyrics before I really understood what he meant.
    I think it's about pain as well as confusion, and not necessarily "wanting her back" but still wanting to protect her, like Drowner said. And maybe she doesn't understand, because even in the song, he says he can't express how he feels.

    General CommentLyrics arent totally right..
    Personally I think this is about a guy and his girlfriend who had a big fight (your words rip and tear through my heart so weak an pure), but the guy still loved her, but before they could make up she died (hence the If only this pain, this pain die too.. line) and without her he can't really get over her because they ended on bad terms.. An he loved her.. So he decides to break her away.. An finally get back to his life.. Which hes been missing.. (this freak I became.. My enemy.. from my angel to my enemy) From the girl that he loved and made his life better to something thats slowly killing him. I might be overanalyzing this but those are my thoughts

    General CommentI love this song!! It is so amazing, espcially the Chorus. "I bleed for the second time tonight" I'm gonna guess he's really hurt or something, this song is obviously about a relationship, maybe a break up.

    General CommentMost everybody seems to agree with Drowner, but I'm afraid that I have to disagree. I absolutely agree that the song is about a breakup and he still has feelings for her, but his desire to "break (her) away" is not altruistic or selfless; he wishes to break her away from his own heart to end his agony. In actuality, the song sees him alone later in the night after the breakup, and he is self-injuring. This is the "second time" that he bleeds that night; the first is emotionally when she breaks up with him. This is consistent with another point in the song when he wishes "if only this pain died, too." He is trying to kill his pain (many or most self-injurers do so because they feel that the physical pain removes, reduces, or heals emotional pain). Incidentally, when he sings this line, the "too" refers to the fact that one other thing has died that night, their relationship. With regards to Tophster's suggestion that the girl died, this is not supported by the fact that the thing that died previously died that same night and, more tellingly, that it's only her words that rip and tear, and not also her death.
