Do you feel like something's missing
When your skin is pressed to mine?
I would whisper you a riot if you'd listen
To this sound that you've ignored a thousand times

'Cause I am only me when I'm without you

All I ever wanted was a part of you that I couldn't break
A piece of you that I couldn't take apart
But we're in pieces now
And all you ever wanted was a part of me that I couldn't fake
I never made it easy to shape my heart
But it's not beating now
I have to let you down

There is ice in place of answers
And the cold chills the bones
When September came and went without an answer
We were left to fall for winter on our own

Now I am only me when I'm without you

All I ever wanted was a part of you that I couldn't break
A piece of you that I couldn't take apart
But we're in pieces now
And all you ever wanted was a part of me that I couldn't fake
I never made it easy to shape my heart
But it's not beating now
I have to let you down

'Cause I am only me when I am without you
Yeah, I am only me when I am without you

All I ever wanted was a part of you that I couldn't break
A piece of you that I couldn't take apart
But we're in pieces now

All I ever wanted was a part of you that I couldn't break
A piece of you that I couldn't take apart
But we're in pieces now
I have to let you down
And all you ever wanted was a part of me that I couldn't fake
I never made it easy to shape my heart
But it's not beating now
I have to let you down

    My InterpretationWow :/ this song reminds me of my ex. she is still my best friend but I wish she was still mine, it really makes me thing of her. "all you ever wanted was a part of me that I couldn't fake" that line means a lot to me! she wants another boyfriend and I won't be able to stay her friend if she does that. I would be too jealous and upset, I just couldn't. It would break my heart and I would have to let her down. She says that I would be a fake best friend if I left her, so I try to hide my feelings.
    I just WISH she was mine again, we had so much good memories and it breaks me so much thinking about what I once had, and it's slowly slipping away from me. the line "All I ever wanted was a part of you that I couldn't break.
    A piece of you that I couldn't take apart" is so true in my situation right now. no matter what I do, no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get things to how they were. I miss it so much. 9/21/11 spaciumon September 27, 2013   Link

    My InterpretationFirst comment, but here are my thoughts:

    Alex (or one of the band's member) is in a relationship, but doesn't love that person anymore because of reasons that made him (a band's member) slowly move away.

    Do you feel like something's missing
    When your skin is pressed to mine?
    I would whisper you a riot if you'd listen
    To this sound that you've ignored a thousand times

    -> When they're together, he feels like the spark isn't there anymore, he talk to her but she never listens.

    All I ever wanted was a part of you that I couldn't break
    [...]
    And all you ever wanted was a part of me that I couldn't fake

    -> Pretty selfexplanatory.

    My OpinionHonestly felt like this was basically him saying he didn't feel like himself around Lisa and that he didn't want to end it with her because he had been with her for so long. He tried talking to her but she wouldn't let go, so neither would he. Maybe I just dislike Lisa so much that I'm being bias and reading it badly. But this is what I see.
