You left some hope instilled in me
That I never should give up on anything
I know this made you proud of me
So this song remains for those who hurt like me

The man in black. He rides alone to a final destination unknown.
The man in black. He rides alone: he's moving on.
Not coming home.

I used to be the fearless one.
Living each day like death would never come
Now I feel his cold breath on my neck
He's watching my steps and telling me that I could be next.

Before I used to take these wings and I'd fly so high
(I'd fly so high. I tried...)
Now I live in regret never coming down to say goodbye
Oh why can't I?

The man in black. He rides alone to a final destination unknown.
The man in black. He rides alone: he's moving on.
I can't follow.

I used to be the fearless one.
Living each day like death would never come
Now I feel his cold breath on my neck
He's watching my steps and telling me that I could be next.

So make way for the man in black
So make way. He's never coming back.

I am so lost at sea
Ryan, shine the light for me
I'm sinking, I can't swim
I need you here to pull me in
I am so lost at sea
Ryan, shine your light for me
I'm sinking, I can't swim
I miss you brother.
You will never dim.

    My InterpretationIt's about his brother Ryan who passed away in an accident.

    "I used to be the fearless one
    Living life like death would never come"
    He realised how life can end within the blink of an eye, he who always was convinced he a whole life in front of him.

    "I am so lost at sea
    Ryan, shine the light for me
    I'm sinking, I can't swim
    I need you here to pull me in
    I am so lost at sea
    Ryan, shine your light for me
    I'm sinking, I can't swim
    I miss you brother.
    You will never dim."
    He's drowning in his grief for his brother. He wants him back so desperately. The pain of the loss will never lose its scalpel edge. Without him he's lost.

    Poor Jonathan... :( the loss of a loved one can cut so deep. Hope he finds strength x
