Breath in and cut shorter, don't let your heart sink lower
I know we had differences but this love will last a lifetime
If we put our heads together and trace back this history
It won't take long to realise how much you mean to me
Old photographs still stuck to the door, smoke stained teeth and damp cold floors
The first time your kiss seemed softer, that one time when your heart broke harder
It's this love we never had, sometimes I think that I'm glad this hate
I miss being by your side, I need a place to hide
I've tried to forget your name
But every night seems the same
Disintegration will follow
I've never felt a pain in life so hollow
I've given up
I'm letting go
I'm so scared, of what will follow
I've never felt a pain in life so hollow
Letting go of everything i used to know
Love let me go

    General CommentHe's so heartbroken his heart is sinking so low through shock and fear. He realizes what he has done is wrong, but he's shocked and outraged the love won't last them a long time. He tries to pull the pieces together and he tries to understand what went wrong, and traces back their history together, and he wants to make her realize how much she meant to him.

    Which he hopes she can understand to. He has just broken up with her, and there's still evidence of them being together and he is upset over it. He still remembers what her kiss felt like, and how much pain he caused her. He sometimes think the love they had didn't even exist, but he's glad he feels so distraught because he's turning it into literature. He dearly misses her, and he needs a place to hide for a while to get over what has happened, where nobody can speak to him or listen. Through introversion.

    He tries to forget her name, but he can't, since she is everywhere he is. He predicts that he will disintegrate and fall deeper and deeper into self destruction and he knows this because he has witnessed it in himself before. He can't even describe how hollow his pain is.

    Love has let him go, the feeling is that he just has given up hope, and he just doesn't care anymore, and he is tired of trying to put the pieces together.

    That's the meaning I get from it anyway.
