I carry my mistakes
And she carries them too
When all I see are bruises black
She shows me the blue
I remember the tears in the morning
The dread of the veil gently falling to the floor

I’ll never know divinity
So inadequately I write
In meter and verse
She believes in God
But I believe in her

When my ship has run its course
She steers me back out to the sea
She won’t let me run aground
I’ve seen the storms she’s met; I’ve seen the tears in secret shed
She sees me as an eagle though I am just a crow
She sees me as a diamond though I’m just a weathered stone

I’ll never know divinity
So inadequately I write
In meter and verse
She believes in God
But I believe in her

I stole a glimpse of you in pain
And I’ll take the image to my grave
You look towards the heavens, and I look up to you
I kneel because there are no words, an act will have to do

She believes in God but I believe in...
...no divinity
So inadequately I write
In meter and verse
She believes in God
But I believe in her

    General CommentI was thinking this could be about his mom. Or any girl that he looks up to, and keeps him going.

    'I carry my mistakes
    And she carries them too
    When all I see are bruises black
    She shows me the blue'
    This bit makes me think of domestic violence, but I don't think that this song is about this.
    This bit could also mean that when he makes mistakes he always sees the worst of them, but this girl, be it his mom, or his girlfriend or whoever shows him the 'blue' the kinda 'benefits' of his mistakes.

    'I believe in her'
    He obviously looks up to and admires this person.

    'When my ship has run its course
    She steers me back out to the sea'
    She keeps him on the right track, and keeps him going.

    'She sees me as an eagle though I am just a crow
    She sees me as a diamond though I�m just a weathered stone '
    She always sees the better side of him, she thinks the world of him, like a mom does of their child.

    General CommentI love the idea that it might be about his mum, p0is0ngir1. I think it's likely that it's about a girl that he's in love with though.
