If I could paint your picture,
I'd paint you as the sea,
I'd let your arms become the tide.
If I could fall into you,
I'd let you swallow me,
so I could see you from inside.

And it's a cruel melody,
that you sing when I'm awake,
Trying to find where the sun shines in a land thats turning gray,
And it's a cruel memory to look back on who we were
Cause my past is a poison and I'll never find the cure

If I could break a promise,
I'd tell a thousand lies,
To have you look at me again.
But your heart is empty of me,
I see it in your eyes.
It wasn't meant for me to win.

And it's a cruel melody,
that you sing when I'm awake,
Trying to find where the sun shines in a land thats turning gray,
And it's a cruel memory to look back on who we were
Cause my past is a poison and I'll never find the cure

Away, take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away.
Away.

Take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away.

Take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away,
I might as well be yours.
Take me away, take me away, take me away.
Take me away.

    General CommentWhen he says "'cause my past is a poison and I'll never find a cure" he could be referring to the fact that he can't forget or forgive what was in his past, and it's a part of him he can't get rid of, no matter how painful it may be.

    General Comment"It's a cruel melody that you sing when I'm awake"
    The cruel melody is the girl's feeling that he love about other man

    It wasn't meant for me to win - the other man wins

    that's what it means to me...

    General CommentYup, I have to agree.
    This song appears to be about a relationship or perhaps before a relationship begins.

    Things are going fine but another guy comes along and steals/gets to her before the narrator can.
    The narrator still feels for her but now he can't have her.

    The song mentions the good times in the past and the grey times now in the present.
