Show me something good
That’s still worth fighting for
I’m not quite sure how
You survive the storms
Inside of your soul
And ever since the start of this
I turn to you when I need something more
Than this empty road
That I follow

So can I just hold onto you tonight?
So can I just hold onto you and make this right?
I’ll take apart what is left and leave it
I’ve come to see that I’ll never make it on my own

I can’t imagine all the things
That haunt your head when you lay in bed
And you try to find a reason to stay here
Ever since the start of this
I never knew the right thing to say to you
The right way to help you through

So can I just hold onto you tonight?
So can I just hold onto you and make this right?
I’ll take apart what is left and leave it
I’ve come to see that I’ll never make it on my own

Hey, I know it’s hard for you to believe
But if you leave I’ll lose everything I really need
Everything that helps me breath
Hey, I know you’re barely hanging on
But even with your weathered heart
I know you’ll walk into this storm ahead of me

But can I just hold onto you tonight?
Can I just hold onto you and make this right?
Can I just hold onto you tonight?
Can I just hold onto you and make this right?
I’ll take apart what is left and leave it
I’ve come to see that I’ll never make it on my own
On my own

    General Commenti see it as like wanting to help someone you love through something so hard for them but you can't reach them, and also at the same time you feel like you need them yourself or you can't survive. its hard to explain but i've felt it. i'd write a long comment to explain but i hate long comments haha.

    General CommentIt's about a relationship that's very fragile and it's about to fall a part. The the guy must've done something wrong because the girl is haunted by past experiences of some sort. I'm guessing the guy thought he could live a happy life, but now he see's that without her he cannot live his happy life. And now all he wants to do is just hold her tight and never let go...

    General CommentIt is about a reltaionship that didn't work out, and the guy took the goodparts and left the old. the guy feels bad for leaving the girl, but he realizes he can't make it on his own, and he found someone else.

    General Commenti think its th first one 'xiripx' his one.

    Hey, I know it’s hard for you to believe
    But if you leave I’ll lose everything I really need
    Everything that helps me breath
    Hey, I know you’re barely hanging on
    But even with your weathered heart
    I know you’ll walk into this storm ahead of me


    by those lines it seems like the guy isnt showingthe girl he loves her enough, and hes saying that although it may not seem it. She means the world to him and he needs her.


    'And you try to find a reason to stay here
    Ever since the start of this
    I never knew the right thing to say to you
    The right way to help you through'

    it also seems that he feels like he doesnt treat her well enough tat she should even stay around.
    but he's greatful that she does.


    amazing song
    i love it

    General CommentWell, I agree with "xiripx" as well.
    But I think that the guy probably cheated on her.
    And the cheating, and reality of her leaving him makes him realize he truly loves her.

    General Commentno i believe, neigh, i am 100% certain, this song in some parts talks of himself (for example, "I'm not quite sure how you survive the storms inside of your soul" speaks of himself) but whom he is asking and begging to use as a foundation in his rough days is his best friend, not some ex girlfriend who he cheated on. sometimes you need to know the author to understand the meaning.

    General CommentI think this song is about somone who's cause him a lot of pain yet he always comes to her no matter what because in the end he always will still care about her, and it kills him that they're having trouble and he doesnt want to fight through it, he wants to lay there with her and feel right instead of constantly feeling this pain and worry of them never being able to have feelings for eachother.
    and when he finally is feeling fed up he realizes the only way he's ever really going to get over this is if he leaves her, and its the only way he can feel better about things.
    basically, she is the thrill in his life.
    its just a troubled relationship and they're realizing they need to end things and find their way out although they both love eachother.
    I dont really know but thats my guess. it probably sucked

    General CommentI think this is about loving someone who is depressed and can't go on. Simple as that. The artist feels that there's nothing he could do about his depressed lover except to say that, "Hey, you can make it. Stay strong because I love you." I don't think there is any other deeper meaning to this song than that.
