Someone said they saw me fall apart
Part of me collected and destroyed
Tell me what it's like to hold a heart
When it shatters

Someone said that they ran into her
Asked if there was any word of me
And she swore that everything we were
Never mattered
(There is a face beneath the waves)

I will return again
I will return to you
I will return again
I am part of you
I am

Are you somewhere listening to me?
Have these whispers finally found the cracks?
White walls won't forever keep these screams
They will shatter

Secretly, you know that I'm still here
While you're being held you're so alone
For you killed the only one who cared
Let it shatter.
(There is a voice within the walls)

I will return again
I will return to you
I will return again
I am part of you
I am

What do you do
When my soul invites you?
Oh, you'll see me again
You know this will never end
What do you do
When your heart reminds you?
Oh, you'll put me to death
But I will return again

I will return again
I will return to you
I will return again
I am part of you
I will be with you again, with you again
I am

    My Interpretation

    Pretty self explanatory...

    I will return again/ I am a part of you.... (She will never be able to escape him because he was a strong force in her life, she can deny it to everyone but his memory will haunt her.)

    Are you somewhere listening to me? Have these whispers finally found the cracks? White walls won't forever keep these screams They will shatter
    ( white walls maybe referencing the walls in an asylum that are sound proof and padded....the white walls she is protected by will buckle under the pressure of the truth)

    Secretly, you know that I'm still here While you're being held you're so alone
    For you killed the only one who cared Let it shatter.
    (There is a voice within the walls)
    ( she's with this other guy but empty inside because it means nothing and this person doesn't actually care about her. She destroyed the man who truly cared for her)

    What do you do When my soul invites you? Oh, you'll see me again
    You know this will never end What do you do When your heart reminds you?
    Oh, you'll put me to death But I will return again
    ( when she remembers him and the memories, when she reawakens and realizes...when her heart aches and reminds her. She'll try to shut him out but she never really can, his memory will always haunt her)
