It's cold
So why aren't the embers falling from the stars?
I can see your face
So why arent you with me in my arms?
I'm becoming numb, I can barely hold up my own hand
But I can still feel you here,
While the world begins to fall apart
While the world begins to fall

And you'll scream my name up to the sky
As you watch the tide come wash away the night
And you'll scream my name up to the sky
As you watch the tide come wash away the night
And we'll make our way out of this mess

My pulse slows as my eyes begin to close
There's a fire inside this beating heart
But it only beats for you
Ashes fill my lungs
Can't you taste them on your tongue?
Watch the light wash away
I'll be holding on and it's all for love

And you'll scream my name up to the sky
As you watch the tide come wash away the night
And you'll scream my name up to the sky
As you watch the tide come wash away the night
And we'll make our way out of this mess

And you'll scream my name up to the sky
As you watch the tide come wash away the night
And you'll scream my name up to the sky
As you watch the tide come wash away the night
And we'll make our way out of this mess

While the world begins to fall

    My InterpretationWhen I listen to this song, it feels like a love song but the lovers are struggling through something together. I get the vibe that they are long distance, hence the lines:

    I can see your face
    So why arent you with me in my arms?
    I'm becoming numb, I can barely hold up my own hand
    But I can still feel you here,
    While the world begins to fall apart
    While the world begins to fall

    They can't physically be together and they are struggling but the singer can still feel them. And as everything falls around them they still have each other.

    Watch the light wash away
    I'll be holding on and it's all for love

    Even though it seems dark and it is hard to be apart, he will still hold on and stay because he loves him/her.
