I've fought another day
Lose another chance to break away
From all I cannot bear
I suffer through the shame
Wishing hope would just abandon me
Til this is over

My loveless life
I'm lost in you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

Time and time again
Take it all and take the fall for you
Fear is all I hold
Bound and beaten down
All the pain I can't escape today
Is always with me

My loveless life
I'm lost in you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

My darkest night
Your arms that hold me tight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

All my love is lost
All my hope is gone
All my love is lost
All my hope is gone

My loveless life
I'm lost in you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

My darkest night
Your arms that hold me tight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who never believed in love or never was in love before, and so they feel in love towards someone for the first time but only for the person to show their 'true colours' and ruins their life ( maybe by abuse )

    Song MeaningI think this song is about someone who was lost in their own problems, until they finally found something/someone good in their life. So in order to avoid their own problems, they focus and throw themselves straight into that thing or person to get rid of that pain. But then the person/thing turns away, because of knowledge of being used and feeling it was selfish. I don't know if that made sense, but it did to me.
