Watch your step, love is broken
I am every tear you cry
Save your breath, your heart has spoken
You already have my life

For I am finding out that love will kill and save me
Taking the dreams that made me up
And tearing them away
But the same love will take this heart that's barely beating
And fill it with hope beyond the stars
Only love

Another day, another sunrise
Washing over everything
In its time, love will be mine
The beauty and the tragedy

For I am finding out that love will kill and save me
Taking the dreams that made me up
And tearing them away
But the same love will take this heart that's barely beating
And fill it with hope beyond the stars
Only love
Only love, love, love

For I am finding out that love will kill and save me

    General CommentI think the main idea of this song is that love is both happiness and misery, though ultimately, it's a positive thing. The first stanza is a little hard to incorporate, but the way I see it, he addresses the individual whom he is in a rather turbulent relationship with at the moment. Though they fight and argue, he reassures her that their affections are never a bad thing. Love is supposed to be painful and distressing, but in the end, it’s the best thing you’ll ever do.

    In the chorus, the speaker elaborates on the fact that love is an oxymoron of sorts, being both murderous and life saving. It will “tear away dreams” and break some hearts, but in the grand scheme of things, “only love” can bring you to the height of your life, to real hope.

    The third stanza continues to say that every day is a new day and a new chance to find true love. Eventually you’ll find it. Love is both beautiful and tragic.

    It’s a great song and it really states clearly how double-edged an emotion like love really is. Everything about it is beneficial, whether in pain or pleasure; the pain you will learn from and the pleasure you will enjoy.

    General CommentYeah I agree with you poster #1

    It's also for me about the fact that there is nothing in this world really apart from Love and all the bad stuff (boil it all down to Hate, just in different forms, or maybe even fear). So you have Love and Hate / Love and Fear.

    And he sings it very mellanchollie, especially the last verse, What do we really pay attention to apart from Love and Fear, if you think about it?
