Three years of something I call love
When the phone calls and photographs are never enough
To save a heart that’s been broken so close to screaming
This can’t be happening, I must be dreaming
What’s the worst that could happen? I never knew
When all I ever wanted was to get away from you
But now the possible’s impossible and I can’t refuse
Grab all your dreams and raise all your glasses

Let’s toast to the lucky ones
To the girl that just broke my heart
I can’t breathe after all that you’ve told me
You took my heart and made me melt again

I could never imagine we’d end up this way
After all that we went through now I’m biting through the pain
It’s like this heart that’s been broken so close to screaming
Was ripped from my chest and I can’t stop the bleeding

Now we all fall for the bad ones
They’ll just break us cause we’re so young, dumb, and vulnerable
Young and vulnerable

Here’s a toast to the lucky ones
To the girl that just broke my heart
I can’t breathe after all that you’ve told me
You took my heart and made me melt again

(You ripped apart these pages)
I can’t breathe
(Our book was overrated)
After all that you’ve told me
(This breaks up all these questions to me what just happened)
You took my heart and made melt again
(I’ll say)

I put your picture in a frame to stand at the side of my bed
So whenever I get sad I can stare at your face
Not overplayed that I won’t forget
When all I remember is talking is cheap and your lies were expensive
And God only knows when I’ll come to my senses
Now I can’t breathe at all (now I can’t breathe at all)

Here’s a toast to the lucky ones
To the girl that just broke my heart
(You ripped apart these pages)
I can’t breathe
(Our book was overrated)
After all that you’ve told me
(This breaks up all these questions tell me what happened)
You took my heart and made melt again
(I’ll say)

(You ripped apart these pages)
I can’t breathe
(Our book was overrated)
After all that you’ve told me
(This breaks up all these questions tell me what happened)
You took my heart and made melt again
(I’ll say)
Tell me what just happened

    My InterpretationThis is my favorite song. It is crazy how accurately it compares to a point in my life. I’ll try to keep it brief.
    This song is about a man who loved a woman more than life itself. He dedicated three years of his life for this woman and it ended so suddenly and unexpectedly that it felt like a dream to him (“This can’t be happening, I must be dreaming”). At times he would want to leave her (“When all I ever wanted was to get away from you”), but now that it’s possible it becomes impossible for him because he wants nothing but to be with her (“But now the possible’s impossible and I can’t refuse”).
    He knows that their relationship is over and in the past, so he drinks in honor of all of the dreams he had planned on the rest of their life together and to all of the lucky ones (people who found their true love) and to the girl that tore his heart apart. He is still in love with her and wants the best for her but he knows she isn’t good for him (“Our book was overrated”, “Now we all fall for the bad ones
    They’ll just break us cause we’re so young, dumb, and vulnerable). He believed that they could overcome every obstacle after all they had been through but that she couldn’t make it work anymore.

    “I put your picture in a frame to stand at the side of my bed
    So whenever I get sad I can stare at your face
    Not overplayed that I won’t forget
    When all I remember is talking is cheap and your lies were expensive
    And God only knows when I’ll come to my senses
    Now I can’t breathe at all (now I can’t breathe at all)”
    In the lyrics above, he indicates that he will never forget all of the pain she had caused him. He keeps her picture as a reminder of how her words were meaningless and were just words. Her lies of truly loving him had cost him a lot of time and suffering. His heart is broke and will need time to recover and learn to trust again but he still loves her and wants her. He only knows that God knows how long it will be until he can love again. He loses his breathe thinking about her and how much pain she caused.
    In short, she wanted out of what he thought was a thriving relationship. She had told him things that deceived him into thinking that she was happy and the truth comes out when she tells him what she really is feeling and it crushes him and makes him vulnerable and untrusting. He knows he is better off without her but his heart still needs more time to mend.
