Well its hard to explain
but Il'l try if you let me,
Well its hard to sustain
I'll cry if you let me.

This doesn't change the way i feel about you or your place in my life.
(please don't cry)
Cant you see I'm dying here a shot of broken heart that is chased with fear?

Angels cry
when stars collide
I can't eat
and I can't breathe
I wouldn't want it any other way.

Intentions that were pure have turned obscure
seconds into hours, minutes into years.
Don't ask me why
(please don't cry)
I cant tell you lies..

Angels cry
when stars collide
I can't eat
and I can't breathe
I wouldn't want it any other way.
(repeat)

My heart, burns through
My chest, to the floor.
Tearing me silently although abruptly words cant hide as I'm taking you home, and I tried to see,
tried to understand your words as I'm taking you home

Angels cry
when stars collide
I can't eat
and I can't breathe
I wouldn't want it any other way.
(repeat)

    Song MeaningI think this is about being in love with somone, like a good friend, who doesn't love you back.
    "Well It's hard to explain..." That might be about when you tell them, and you could cry because they don't love you back.
    "This doesnt change..." This is about how no matter how the one you love feels, you love them anyways, and nothing could change that. Your heart is broken, as they don't love you back.
    The chorus, I think it's like that it' so tough going through this, that they find it hard to do everyday things. And 'I wouldn't want it any other way', because if your friends you will be more likely to be together forever.
    "Intentions that were pure..." That might be that this pain your going through is changing you, and instead of just living through the day happily, maybe you want to cut yourself or soemthing...(NOT GOOD CHILDREN!)
    "My heart burns..." You've told them how you feel, and it breaks your heart how they don't love you back. The "I'm taking you home" part is about how you are taking them home after your confession, and how you are having trouble imagining that they don't love you back.


    Ya, I know this is complicated....but that's how I work XD

    General CommentI can relate to this song!

    The man I've loved for years has just walked away. I'm not sure if I'll even see him again. My stomach is sick, I sure as hell "CAN'T EAT" and I can't sleep, or don't want to. I'll see him in my dreams and wake up only to find that he's not there :(

    I think that means that there was a breakup, but the person didnt understand why they did.

    "and I tried to see, tried to understand your words as I'm taking you home"

    that probably means that it was on his or her mind for awhile.

    idk if its right but i can really really relate to it.
