Theres a hole In my heart
which you used to get your air
It wont beat again for at least another year
You cut it out yourself, so you wont suffocate in there
Your patience is losing to your fear
I lost her
When collecting angels come
I will rush to find your prayers
Theyre buried in the closet under the stairs
under boxes of my dreams
and the clutter of my fears
my selfishness is probably why theyre here
and i kept digging my own grave
Im close to 30 miles deep
I can taste the other side and it isnt pretty
and i left my lover in a bottle
and i threw it out to sea
as soon as she left my fingertips I prayed she come back to me
come back to me baby
I lost her
I lost her
I lost her
I lost her
I lost her
I lost her
I lost her
I will never stitch the hole you cut
In hopes that you will return to me
I will work to be a man yes you will see
yes I will work to be your man yes you will see

    My Interpretation This is such an amazing song, quite sad but truly amazing. It seems like he lost the girl because he was very childish and isn't trust worthy or suffocating her, from the verses "Your patience is losing to your fear" the trust part or the fear of being tied down and "I will work to be a man yes you will see" the childish part. But it seems that he broke up with her from the "and i left my lover in a bottle,
    and i threw it out to sea" or it may be a metaphor for him fuckin up. But all in all it seems that she's the one that got away, and he's "prayed for her to come back" to him

    Crazy beautiful song. i can definitely relate to some point. Thanks for putting up the lyrics btw! was waiting for it so i can sing along :P

    Song Meaningthis means alot, especially to me. mostly, i think it means that he loved a girl, but let her go, because he was selfish, and now he wants her back: "my selfishness is probably why theyre here" and "and i left my lover in a bottle and i threw it out to sea as soon as she left my fingertips I prayed she come back to me" show this. It's a meaningful song, and definitely my favorite by them.
