"Bury My Heart" as written by and Brody Homme Alain Johannes Moschulski....
I've been known to run
Like a horse who hears the gun
I've been known to carry
Bones they're light on marrow
I've been known to waste sanity
I know there's nothing left in silence
I've been known to waste
It's a waste
It's a wave goodbye

If he wants to go
You can bury my heart

I've been known to cry
Acid rainbows are for the color blind
I've been caught in a cycle before
It's a race back to the starting line
I've been known to waste sanity
I know there's nothing left in silence
I've been known to waste
It's a waste
It's a wave goodbye

If he wants to go
You can bury my heart

    My InterpretationI've been known to run
    Like a horse who hears the gun
    I've been known to carry
    Bones they're light on marrow

    She is not so devoted or a big believer of love. And when love comes in her life, she runs away from it as fast as a horse runs when he hears a gun fire.
    She carries with a past which might be one of the reasons why she is so defensive on love.

    I've been known to waste sanity
    I know there's nothing left
    In silence
    I've been known to waste
    It's a waste
    It's a wave goodbye

    She knows she is a odd soul. But stupid is not part of her. The silence that surrounds the relationship is telling her something; is letting her know that this relationship might be coming to an end and all that silence between both of them is her sign to the obvious.

    If he wants to go
    You can bury my heart

    If he leaves; she is putting herself out of the fucked up world of love. Because she as never given herself to anyone (love wise) like she did to him. And now that he decides to leave her. She will bury her heart because she put herself out there once and was unappreciated. And that emptiness you feel when you lose someone you love is just to much.

    I've been known to cry
    Acid rainbows are for the color blind
    I've been caught in a cycle before
    It's a race back to the starting line

    She is admitting to cry over this guy but she is trying to be strong and let her pride kick in. She doesn't need such a chaotic relationship to be able to see a color rainbow (be happy). She as been through rough situations this is just another one. Won't be easy to get over it, but eventually she will.

    (Going through a break up. This song can't better describe the way I feel and the way my relationship was).
