I never took away your crutch,
Just became it day by day
Blood filling up our boots
What's the use in talking
When all you want to do is walk
It's all you wanna do, do and
This is how the summer ends
This is how the summer ends.

You never took away my crutch,
Just became it day by day
Blood filling up our boots
What's the use in talking
Eyes are open finally
Eyes are open finally
And all you wanna do is walk
It's all you wanna do, do and
This is how the summer ends
This is how the summer ends

And I, I had the same choices
As you do, as you do.
And you fall,
Fall like i knew you would
Lead me down down down
Lead me down

I never told you what i want
You never showed me what you need
A match bursting into flames
And all is dust soon enough
Eyes are open finally
Eyes are open finally
And all you wanna do is walk
It's all you wanna do, do
And this is how the summer ends
This is how the summer ends.

I, I have the same choices
As you do, as you do
And you fall
Fall like i knew you would
Lead me down, down, down
Lead me down

He's on your doorstep
He's ladened with flowers
His garden is freezing, teasing,
You're leaving me for hours

    My InterpretationI think this song is definitely about a suffering relationship. The couple has grown to depend on each other (they became each other's crutches). The relationship grows more and more sour until they finally realize what is going on (eyes are open finally). Half of the couple is trying to talk to their other half to see what is wrong, but the other half avoids it (all you wanna do is walk). The "summer" could mean a summer fling or the relationship as a whole.
    They both had the choice of continuing the relationship by working out the kinks or letting it run it's course. They seem to choose the latter. In a last ditch effort to fix their relationship, the guy shows up at his s/o's doorstep with flowers, but we don't find out if the door is answered.
