I keep on hoping that we'll find
Another reason to compromise
But this time we'll break down inside

I keep on staring to the past
And all those feelings we compromised
And this time I'll break down inside

Don't go
Don't feel like you have to
Only if you want to

Fill my world with hope again, hope again
Sometimes people make the wrong moves
Walking in the wrong shoes
Make me feel like hope again, hope again

We keep on changing mile by mile
And all the answers are hard to find
And this time we'll go hand from hand
I'll shed some sorrow, shed some sin
I hate this state we're in
And this time I'll break down inside

Don't go
Don't feel like you have to
Only if you want to

Fill my world with hope again, hope again
Sometimes people make the wrong moves
Walking in the wrong shoes
Make me feel like hope again, hope again

Sun shines slowly and falls from your mind
Falls from your mind
Hope dies slowly and falls from your eyes
Falls from your eyes (x3)

Don't go
Don't feel like you have to
Only if you want to

Fill my world with hope again, hope again
Sometimes people make the wrong moves
Walking in the wrong shoes
Make me feel like hope again, hope again

    My InterpretationThis song is hauntingly beautiful I think. It can hurt, it can make you cry, it's an expression of pain, but it sounds so pretty.

    I think it's a girl who has broken up with her boyfriend. It's someone she truly loved, but something stopped them being together.

    They're gradually moving apart - "we’ll go hand from hand". It's not 'hand-in-hand' anymore, they're separated. Whilst she hates this, she's going to try to "shed some sorrow, shed some sin", she's saying she'll try to deal with it.

    It also seems she implies she's made mistakes - "sometimes people make the wrong moves, walking in the wrong shoes". Perhaps she wishes she hadn't made the decision she had made, maybe she wishes she could have him back but she can't.

    "Fill my world with hope again" seems to say she wants him back and "don't go, don't feel like you have to, only if you want to" seems to say she wishes he wouldn't want to leave. She's saying 'I don't want you to go, but if it's what you want, I'll learn to deal with this hurt and pain'.

    Wow, it's a tough song, so emotional!
