The redness of his face permits
the truth his words won't dare admit.
His sunken eyes are hid behind a darken lens.
Broken doors and thoughtless words,
the tire tracks on her dead lawn.
Feeble threats and loveless debts
prove nothing when she steals your breath.

She stands tall with strength not height
you can see the fists inside her eyes.
Now its time for her revenge,
delivered acid tongue, god pity/help him.
She sits there in the aftermath
as the cars are driving slowly past.

Broken doors and thoughtless words,
the tire tracks on her dead lawn.
Feeble threats and loveless debts
prove nothing when she still steals your breath.

She sits there in the aftermath
and listens as cars drive slowly past.
His final show, his lies
had done nothing but cured her smile

(Her bruises fade from black to blue)
Over time they slowly heal
(You'll think you've grown found love again)
When you break your own heart
(It will never mend)

Broken doors and thoughtless words,
the tire tracks on her dead lawn.
Feeble threats and loveless debts
prove nothing when she still steals your breath.

    General CommentI love that song.
    I think it's about a person being in love with somebody even after an ugly breakup that they know was their own fault, for what could be any number of reasons. But no matter how stubborn they are in NOT admitting they were wrong and that they still have feelings for that person, they're still in love with them. And they realize that they may have hurt that person at first, but that person will move on eventually. Really in the end it's their OWN heart that they broke. (i.e: "when you break your own heart, it will never mend")

    There's more to it than that depending on how you look at it, but that's the main things I think of when I listen to it.

    My InterpretationGoing off of the previous commentor's interpretation; i think its about a person who leaves his girlfriend/wife/significant other/etc. after a big argument with her. Then after a while he realizes that he still loves her, but before he can tell her she's hit by a car and dies.
