It's looking like a limb torn off
Or altogether just taken apart
We're reeling through an endless fall
We are the ever-living ghost of what once was

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one's gonna love you more than I do

And anything to make you smile
It is my better side of you to admire
But they should never take so long
Just to be over then back to another one

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one's gonna love you more than I do

But someone,
They could have warned you
When things start splitting at the seams and now
The whole thing's tumbling down
Things start splitting at the seams and now
If things start splitting at the seams and now,
It's tumbling down
Hard.

Anything to make you smile
You are the ever-living ghost of what once was
I never want to hear you say
That you'd be better off
Or you liked it that way

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one's gonna love you more than I do

But someone
They should have warned you
When things start splitting at the seams and now
The whole thing's tumbling down
Things start splitting at the seams and now
If things start splitting at the seams and now,
It's tumbling down
Hard.

    General CommentI think of this song is more of the ending of a relationship of where both parties still love each other, but they are unable to be together, whether they are already married or have other lovers; this also regards the idea that you can fall in love more than once but you don't HAVE to act upon those feelings. Even after the two of you break up, there is still that memory of the relationship that hangs around like a "ghost." And the other person always wants to feel like they made an impact in your life, hence the lyrics "I never want to hear you say/that you'd be better off/or you liked it that way." From the lines of "warning" there are times in a relationship where you wished that you or the other person could have been warned of the outcome even before you started loving each other. "No one's gonna love you more than I do" is a way of saying that even when things don't work out, you'll always have this place in your heart where you will forever love that person.

    My InterpretationI think this song can relate to longing for someone who is in a problematic relationship.

    Anything to make you smile
    You are the ever-living ghost of what once was
    I never want to hear you say
    That you'd be better off
    Or you liked it that way

    I think this passage is about the person of your affection being attached to their current relationship and how you never what them to think that they were complacent with it.

    I'm in currently in this situation hopelessly in love with a girl in a detrimental relationship.
    Have to say I just shed a tear while listening to it.
    Kill me please.

    General Commentat first listen I thought this song was really romantic but over time I've heard the desperation come out of it. it's really beautiful though, just more sad than I originally thought.

    General CommentI love these lyrics! They are so pure and true.

    Especially the lyrics:

    "We're reeling through an endless fall
    We are the ever-living ghost of what once was"

    because it can only remind me of a past love. Although it's gone, I will never forget it.

    General CommentThis is such a sad, beautiful song about a relationship slowly dying out, and how one person loves the other so much, but things arent working. I think it could also have to do with a shortlived fling, where one person ended up really falling hard, and the other doesnt care. It breaks my heart everytime i hear the lines "no one's gonna love you more than i do" because it kinda summarizes how people feel when the other person just doesnt even realize how much they care.
