"What Only You Know" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
So after all that has been said
Can we find a way back to when
The days were ours to take
And nothing ever hurt
And we failed to offer or forgive

Reach out for the favors
Take down the hopeful light
For even the broken
Even the broken break

In the silence that only you know
What hides in the emptiness
That only you know
When the night is long
And the will is weak
Even the broken break

It is a pain you will never know
Held up to a light you once shone
For every hour in my head
The mind distorts
So what can the broken ever say?

Phase out the noise pollution
Tune out of insanity's dream
Take the hopeless
Take the hopeless down

In the silence that only you know
What hides in the emptiness
That only you know
In that darkness
That only you know

In the silence that only you know
What hides in the emptiness
That only you know

    My InterpretationI'm probably wrong but this song make me think about how we may be smiling on the outside. How we are happy but when we are alone we feel an emptiness and we are longing for something.

    For some it could be love. Like you can say you're ok being single but when you're alone you feel the emptiness.

    It could also be living with regrets.

    My InterpretationI truly suck at interpreting songs, that's why I mostly try to find it here on Song Meanings, so don't take my interpretation too seriously, it's just my feeling about it.

    I think it's about situation, when everything used to be fine (most likely about someone in love with someone else), but then something fu*ked up, and at least one of them (at least the narrator of this song or maybe even the other person) is now really unhappy or even depressed, but they couldn't find a way to return to the days when everything was fine.
