Can’t believe she’s gone
I Can’t believe she’s gone
I Can’t believe she’s gone away

Darkness was my future
Hopeless were the patterns
Callous was my heart, so it seems

Oh, I should sing a little bit faster
I’m to blame for this disaster
I’m repairing my heart for you
Oh and I should breathe a little bit softer
Oxygen reminds me I lost her
I’m repairing my heart for you

Can’t believe she’s gone, I
Folded on the creases
Tore myself to pieces now

But blessed was the daylight that
Flooded my hearts windows, and
Cleared the smoke that billows out

Oh, I should sing a little bit faster
I’m to blame for this disaster
I’m repairing my heart for you
Oh and I should breathe a little bit softer
Oxygen reminds me I lost her
I’m repairing my heart for you

Peace my body, Oh my soul – to find, no I don’t mind
Break my hardened heart to show, that I, yea I was blind
Lay my body on the shore, to find, no I don’t mind

Can’t believe she’s gone, I’m
Casting out the demons
Letting go of reasons why

Welcome was the daylight that
Found where I was hiding, and
Fought the dark residing there

Oh, I should sing a little bit faster
I’m to blame for this disaster
I’m repairing my heart for you
Oh and I should breathe a little bit softer
Chemicals remind me I lost her
I’m repairing my heart for you

    Song MeaningThis song is sort of a strange mix, a song about a girl he lost, but at the same time uplifting.

    "But blessed was the daylight that
    Flooded my hearts windows, and
    Cleared the smoke that billows out"

    I think indicates that he had a sort of realization after they broke up, and is becoming a better person with a more open heart. "Repairing" his heart. Especially considering that he earlier described himself as hopeless and callous, with a dark future.

    I love the lyric "Oxygen reminds me I lost her." It makes me think of someone that you absolutely couldn't live without, like oxygen. Every breath reminds him of how much he needs her.
