Nothin' goes as planned.
Everything will break.
People say goodbye.
In their own special way.
All that you rely on
And all that you can fake
Will leave you in the morning
But find you in the day

Oh you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh you run away
Cause I am not what you found
Oh you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out.

Everything will change.
Nothin' stays the same.
And nobody here's perfect.
Oh but everyones to blame.
All that you rely on
And all that you can save
Will leave you in the morning
And find you in the day

Oh you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh you run away
Cause I am not what you found
Oh you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out.
No I cannot get you out.
No I cannot get you.

Everything is dark.
It's more than you can take.
But you catch a glimpse of sun light.
Shinin', Shinin' down on your face.

Oh you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth.
Oh you run away
Cause I am not what you found
Oh you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out.
No, I cannot get you out.
No, I cannot get you out.
Oh no, I cannot get you.

    General CommentI think what he's trying to get across is that people are unexplainable with their actions at times, and most will disappoint, and that this lover is no exception.
    The only problem is that he can't get over them.

    My InterpretationThe way I see it, this song is about a break-up and getting over that person. Something happened "Nothin' goes as planned/everything will break", things went wrong and everything changed between them "Everything will change/nothing stays the same". The other person left "people say goodbye/in their own special way" and now this person is trying to move on and heal from the pain that the break-up caused and it takes time.
    "All that you rely on
    And all that you can fake
    Will leave you in the morning
    But find you in the day"
    At first, you don't even know where to begin, but as the day goes by you manage to find a way to survive and keep moving and put on a smile for the world, you find something that keeps you afloat long enough to make it on your own and by the end of the day you see that you made it. But by the next day everything you had the day before that kept you afloat is gone so you go through the process again.
    Oh you're in my veins
    "And I cannot get you out
    Oh you're all I taste
    At night inside of my mouth
    Oh you run away
    Cause I am not what you found
    Oh you're in my veins
    And I cannot get you out."
    That's pretty self explanatory. The person can't get over the other person. The feelings are strong and it's hard to get over them.
    "And nobody here's perfect
    Oh but everyone's to blame"
    Everyone makes mistakes because that's our nature so everyone's going to have some share of the blame.
    "Everything is dark.
    It's more than you can take.
    But you catch a glimpse of sun light.
    Shinin', Shinin' down on your face."
    The pain is overwhelming and you can't handle it but there's hope. Someone or something is out there ready to help you through it all.

    That's just how I see it. I went through something like this so I can relate to it but I love the song anyway. :) I heard it in two TV shows: first, The Vampire Diaries, and second, Castle.

    My InterpretationBeautiful song. I guess it's about trying to forget someone, but not succeeding in it.

    General CommentI've come to find I have a soft spot for songs with lyrics about someone being in your veins. But this song is above and beyond. I don't think this one needs too much interpretation, it's stated pretty clearly in the chorus what it's about. I just love these lyrics:
    "All that you rely on
    And all that you can fake
    Will leave you in the morning
    But find you in the day"

    It will always find you.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a girl basically searching for someone to make her feel better about herself.

    "All that you rely on/And all that you can fake/Will leave you in the morning/But find you in the day"
    I think this refers to the fact that she is trying to fill the gap inside by finding someone, but when she wakes up in the morning next to someone new, she is still empty.

    The section about "Oh you're all I taste/At night inside of my mouth/Oh you run away/Cause I am not what you found" indicates that he had a relationship with her, but she eventually left him, because he wasn't what she needed. He's still pining for her.

    The lyric about "People say goodbye/In their own special way" may indicate that she didn't really give him a proper goodbye, that she just left. Also, the fact that he describes it as running away.

    The section where he says that "Everything is dark./It's more than you can take./But you catch a glimpse of sun light./Shinin', Shinin' down on your face." makes me picture her as a girl who's kind of messed up, but he's hoping she'll be able to get past it one day.

    General CommentI think this song means people will give you hurt, and always. But, in the end, sometimes or maybe always/usually we couldn't ripped those people who hurt us so badly from our life because they also our the most important person in our life. Also the most you love in the world. The one that you can't even let them go away from you. So, you keep lying to yourself, also to them. Pretending that you forgive but you won't forget about what all they have done to you. You're not will be the same the way you first time met them.

    Sad. But people just like that. Memories keep stuck too. Life sucks.

    My InterpretationI think this is about like someone's life- cause it describes mine.
    "Nothin' goes as planned.
    Everything will break.
    People say goodbye.
    In their own special way."
    Is about losing someone, maybe a friend or having someone you loved die.
    "All that you rely on
    And all that you can fake
    Will leave you in the morning
    But find you in the day"
    It's pretending everything's okay when really your whole world is crashing down onto you.

    The chorus says that through all this there's this one person who will always be there and you love them for that. They're in your veins.

    "Everything will change.
    Nothin' stays the same.
    And nobody here's perfect.
    Oh but everyones to blame."
    This is like watching everything around you change someway, everyday somethings different. And everyone in your world makes it change and has the blame for something- whether good or bad- in your world.

    "Everything is dark.
    It's more than you can take.
    But you catch a glimpse of sun light.
    Shinin', Shinin' down on your face."
    This part is when you are in a low area again, where everything's wrong, but you find this one person and they're your light in a world of darkness.

    General CommentI like this song, and have been listening to it over and over again for the past days. I think its about feeling somewhat doomed in a relationship, wanting to make it work - but at the same time knowing that it never will. You're trying to get past the lies and the suffering, but it finds you again later at day, always. And the person you love is there, in your thoughts, all the time - making it all hurt that much more.

    General CommentThis song always give me the feeling of closure. Depressing as it is beautiful, like the end of a relationship. When one moves on, the other could still hold back and it's just so emotional how this song makes you feel! I guess this is why so many series are using it as their finale song.
