I wish my life was this song.
'Cause songs, they never die.
I could write for years and years
and never have to cry.
I'd show you how I feel without saying a word.
I could wrap up both our hearts.
I know it sounds absurd.

And I saw the tears on your face.
I shot you down.
And I slammed the door
but couldn't make a sound.
So please stay sweet, my dear.
Don't hate me now.
I can't tell how this last song ends.

The way that I feel tonight...
so down, so down.
I pray I can swim just so I won't drown.
And the waves that crash over me,
I'm gasping for air.
Take my hand so I can breathe as I write this last song down.

And I saw the tears on your face.
I shot you down.
And I slammed the door
but couldn't make a sound.
So please stay sweet, my dear.
Don't hate me now.
I can't tell how this last song ends.

The broken glass, your moistened skin.
Was everything, was everything.
And your broken voice was quivering.
You're everything, you're everything.
Scream at me, make it the best I ever heard.
Laugh out loud, I know it sounds absurd.
Scream at me, make it the best I ever heard.
You're everything, you're everything.

Heartbeat's slowing, pains are growing.
Does she love you?
That's worth knowing.
Heartbeat's slowing, pains are growing.
Does she love you?
That's worth knowing.
Yeah.

    General CommentSorry BeccaxLove, but i think this is from the male perspective.

    He is singing about, as was earlier mentioned, a fight.
    He wants her to forget about the fight and not hate him.
    He dosent know how they will end up.

    He shows us his reaction:
    "Heartbeat's slowing
    Pains are growing
    Does SHE love you?
    That worth knowing."

    He just had a fight, and realizes he was wrong.
    THat she was everything to him.
    He has pain because of this.
    And he is torn because he isnt sure if she still loves him. ("Does she love you?")

    ...

    He had a fight with her.
    He realizes that he was wrong.
    he is upset about hurting her.
    He doesnt want her to hate her.
    He is very upset about the whole thing.
    He isnt sure is she still loves him.
    He dosent know how his 'Life', or song, will end.
    ("I wish my life was this song.")

    General CommentI believe the song is about how he loves her but had to let her go. He wishes he didn't hurt her and hopes that it's not a permanent hurt. The way he says he couldn't make a sound after slamming the door makes me think he didn't know exactly what to say but he knew what he had to do. He had to close that door no matter how he felt about her. He feels very upset and hopes she can forgive him. She meant so much to him but it won't work out for one reason or another and it's hurting him more than he can really say or express. If he was a song he could say what he wanted without feeling like dying or crying and could express exactly how he feels so that she could know exactly what he feels and is thinking.

    General CommentSeems to me the writter is writting this song as his last thing to say to the girl he is in love with. Seems he hurt this girl and he regrets what he did to her he thinks what he did to her may change her but he wants her to stay the same to stay sweet. He believes his pain grows stronger and stronger till she forgives him and he wins her back but deep in down he knows thats it all over so he writes...His last song

    General CommentTo me the song itself represents how he feels towards his girl - how he wishes it could last forever. His actions dont represent how he feels for her and wishes he could change that. Something went wrong and he obviously regrets it. The fact that they ever loved eachother is comfort and this song may end, but another song will start. Its all about having someone that you loved - this may be the last song ever, but its forever recorded and going back and remembering what they had is what counts.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a girl that he loves and they may have had a fight and he said some things he shouldn't. The first verse I love, how you could somehow create this understanding between them, to stop all the pain and frustration, so they understand each others hearts. Wish it were that east >.<
    But yeah, I love this song, it's beautiful.
