You have broken me, all the way down
Down upon my knees

(and) You have broken me, all the way now
You'll be the last, you'll see

(and) Some fight you gave
When I pushed you away
From me

(and) In the morning
When you turn in
I'll be far to sea

(and) You have broken me, all the way down
You'll be the last, you'll see

(and) What chance have we got
When you missed every shot
From me

(and) In the morning
When you turn in
I'll be out of reach

(and) In the darkness
When you find this
I'll be far to sea

(and) You have broken me, all the way down
You'll be the last, you'll see

    General Commentwow - i wish i would've written this song....To me, this is a song about a relationship that pretty much has beaten you up emotionally to the point where you finally know you have to move on...and when you go you promise yourself you'll never let anyone hurt you like that again. You'll be stronger next time. I'm not sure if this is what you are telling the other person or more like a pep talk to yourself.

    (and) You have broken me, all the way now
    You'll be the last, you'll see

    Either way, its over. They never took care of you the way you deserved or needed when they had you and when you asked them for more or else, they showed you how much they didn't care

    (and) Some fight you gave
    When I pushed you away
    From me

    and you know that there is no chance...its over even though it hurts like hell ....cause they never got it and you know they just never will

    (and) What chance have we got
    When you missed every shot
    From me

    and maybe its gone up and down for awhile but you make a promise not to go back...

    (and) In the darkness
    When you find this
    I'll be far to sea

    and you make a promise never to allow yourself to be hurt or vulnerable like that again....the wall goes up.

    (and) You have broken me, all the way down
    You'll be the last, you'll see

    General CommentThis song is dedicated to my most recent ex.
    You win, you broke me the way you wanted.
    I hope your happy, because now I'm gone
    And you'll be the last to ever do that

    General Commenta song about devastation at the end of a relationship. the singer has been hurt so badly that he feels whoever has done this to him will "be the last".

    the lines "some fight you gave, when i pushed you away" seem sarcastic, as if he pushed away whoever he's singing to in order to find out if they'd try & save the relationship (and, as it turns out, they wouldn't).

    "you missed every shot
    from me"

    whoever hurt him failed to make an attempt at fixing things; now he's gone for good, and it's finally too late.
