See me down, see me out
See those wings you gave me
Watch me fly across the sea
Count the ways you made me
Walked in circles, walked the line
Tripped through tangled heart strings
Made an enemy of time
Made a mess of all things
All things

I have thought and think about
What and how to tell you
I have lived it seems without
Learning how to be true
But I meant every word I said
From deranged to divine
And I would do it all again
As if for the first time
The first time

The hurt that the head forgets
The heart will always remember
The hold that the hand regrets
The heart remembers forever

I am sorry, I am so
For the things you don't know
And as for the things you do
I am sorry for those too

Out of every broken heart
Broken rule and promise
I have made a rescue raft
And sail towards you on it
On it

The hurt that the head forgets
The heart will always remember
The hold that the hand regrets
The heart remembers forever

Well, do you do you want me
Do you know how to show
How to show these things
I just didn't want to have to ask
Just didn't want to have to lose
Least of all people
You

Should you find someone with whom
There’s no shiver or shout
With whom never to assume
To much rain or a drought
Scratch your name into her heart
Scratch away all the doubt
Scratch my memory from your brain
I'll scratch her fucking eyes out
Eyes out

I was put together wrong
Still I was made for you
When our stitches come undone
We come together like glue
Like glue

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about a girl reminiscing about a past special relationship that didn't work out. She was in times lost, in times walking the line, and while doing so she tripped in the ups and downs of it. And probably because she was afraid of the future she made a mess of all things.

    Her mistakes, that she only realized after a while, haunt her. And she's sorry for what is known and for what still isn't. She's never learned how to be true, which means here - I think - unafraid, selfless. Still, despite all that, she meant everything, from her crazy outbursts to her pure love. And she would go through the good and bad parts all over again.

    She has a hard time forgetting even though the pain has subsided. Still longs for what's gone, and wonders if it's mutual. And truly regrets losing of all people, this person.

    She's gonna be jealous if this person finds a more stable relationship. And in the end of the song, there's some longing. Maybe, maybe when their wounds are healed, they will be able to be together again.
