If you happen to walk by and see
The door is cracked
Don't bother looking
My letters are on the kitchen table
For you to read
I'm sorry i'm not the daughter you needed to me to be

Now i dream
Carbon monoxide
Set me free
Carbon monoxide
Window to eternity
Please forgive me

I want to dance with you again
The only thing keeping us apart is my skin
I'll just cut and set myself free
If that's the only way you can be with me

Now i dream
Carbon monoxide
Set me free
Carbon monoxide
Window to eternity
Please forgive me

Your body's been dead since September
But i still remember
My blood whispers your name
My spirit waits for you to take me away

I don't want to live one more day
Nothing left inside me is sane

Carbon Monoxide
Carbon Monoxide
Forgive me

    General CommentI think the first verse of the song is about a girl leaving her suicide note on the kitchen table for parents to find. The chorus is about her dreaming of dying. The the second verse means that she wants to be reunited with someone that has died. The third verse is about the person who she wants to be reunited with. She still remembers them and she can't wait to die so that she can be with them.
