"Dying for You" as written by and John/lovato Feldmann....
I'm dying for you

You can keep your secrets
But that's all you get to keep
You can keep your mindset lost in misery
Keep me in the dark
With the truth is where I'll sit
Put me in the closet, but I just can't fit
I'm slowly dying by watching you

I'm watching you, watching me
I'm wanting you, wanting me
I'm watching you, watching me
I'm wanting you, wanting me

I see your pictures of the past
They haunt me
I can see the truth, but I just won't believe
And now you're skeletons are taunting me
I just can't face all my memories
I'm slowly dying by watching you

I'm watching you, watching me
I'm wanting you, wanting me
I'm watching you, watching me
I'm wanting you, wanting me

As I fall apart inside
On and on, It's killing me this time
As I suffer and I die
On and on and on and on

I'm dying for you
Yeah, I'm dying for you
I'm dying for you

I'm watching you, watching me
I'm wanting you, wanting me
I'm watching you, watching me
I'm wanting you, wanting me

I'm dying for you

    -He loves a woman who's got a lot she's dealing with emotionally; she's got things that are breaking her apart inside but she's too scared to talk about them or let anyone know about it. She doesn't want him to look down on her. He wants to help her, he wants to know what's going on with her so he can help but he doesn't want to be 'kept out' - he wants the truth. "Put me in the closet, but I just can't fit" She tries to keep him from knowing what's going on with her and it's breaking his heart, sucking the love and life right out of him he loves her so much.

    "I'm watching you, watching me
    I'm wanting you, wanting me
    I'm watching you, watching me
    I'm wanting you, wanting me"

    -He's looking right through her, he knows something is wrong but she tries to keep up her front. He wants all of her = physically and emotionally and it's mutual but the fact that she's hiding her feelings from him makes it too hard.

    "I see your pictures of the past
    They haunt me
    I can see the truth, but I just won't believe
    And now you're skeletons are taunting me
    I just can't face all my memories
    I'm slowly dying by watching you"

    -He sees how happy she was when she was younger, she had everything and more going for her, it makes him wonder what the hell happened to make her lose faith and start to break apart. He knows for sure that something traumatic has happened to her and he wants to know why she's not letting him in. He may have her physically but he wants the whole package - he wants to know what he can do to love her and help her through her darkness. It's killing him inside knowing that she has lost herself. She might be leading a destructive lifestyle = drinking, drugs, smoking, cutting, etc. and it's excruciatingly painful for him to see someone he loves do this to themselves. He can't understand why someone so beautiful and fortunate would be so scared.


    "As I fall apart inside
    On and on, It's killing me this time
    As I suffer and I die
    On and on and on and on"

    "I'm dying for you
    Yeah, I'm dying for you
    I'm dying for you"

    -These last two verses he's basically saying I can't take it anymore. He'd do anything to help her, to take her pain away if he could. But because she won't let him in he's losing it inside.

    General CommentTo me this song kind of means, that they were together but she didn't want other people to know. now that they've broken up he knows that it would never work but he won't believe it.

    General CommentTo me, it's about two friends. One of whome is madly inlove with the other, and the other has no idea.

    I get that from :

    You can keep your secrets
    But that's all you get to keep
    You can keep your mindset lost in misery
    Keep me in the dark
    With the truth is where I'll sit
    Put me in the closet, but I just can't fit
    I'm slowly dying by watching you

    and :

    I'm watching you, watching me
    I'm wanting you, wanting me
    I'm watching you, watching me
    I'm wanting you, wanting me
