four years from now i'll have my say. i'll think back to these sleepless nights.
where we grew so close and wished our lives away
sang songs of death together, kissing in the twilight
when you whispered something i wish you never said
into winter our faces faded, my knuckles cracked in the cold but i didn't mind
i was nearly home, and i stayed by your side
never wanted to think about our future, i've had doubtful eyes
i cant erase the reality i watched you walk away from me. i watched you walk away
breathe in those memories,
drown out those tears
scream away those years.
i was never good enough to take your breath away
i was never good enough for you.
guide your hand and take my life away

    My InterpretationSuch a poweful and moving song. The end gives me goosebumps everytime, it's amazing.
    Anyway, i think it's about a failed relationship, and he is just sayng he's nothing without them and he has never been good enough to please them, so they might aswell just take his life away.
