Agape
Please don't dissipate
I know that I have got it all wrong
I'm reaching out
To touch your voice
But baby, I'm clutching at straws
Even though
Your words hurt the most

I still wanna hear them, every day
You say let it go
But I can't let it go
I won't leave, every word that you say

For I'm so scared of losing you
And I don't know what I can do about it
About it
So tell me how long, love, before you go
And leave me here on my own
I know that I don't wanna know
Who I am without you

Oh agape
Please don't dissipate
Yeah I know I've got it all wrong
I'm reaching out
To touch your voice
But baby I'm clutching at straws

For I'm so scared of losing you
And I don't know what I can do about it
About it
So tell me how long, love, before you go
And leave me here on my own
I know that, I don't wanna know
Who I am without you

I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know

For I'm so scared of losing you
And I don't know what I can do about it
About it
So tell me how long, love, before you go
And leave me here on my own
I know that
I know that
Tell me how long, love, before you go
And leave me here on my own
I know that
I don't wanna know who I am without you
I don't wanna know who I am without you

    My InterpretationFeels like a guy who's so insecure, and dysfunctional with this (or all) relationships, he's convinced it's doomed. A self fulfilling prophecy he feels unable to avoid. I relate to this song in this way.

    My InterpretationI feel like this is a song about the writer sinking into a situation where he (the song writer) is slowly losing all control and not being able to help his friend who seems to be going through some delmma and he just can't help his friend at all
    (Really like the title agape / basicly it means brotherly love )

    General CommentFeels to me like a typical love song where the singer has been dumped.

    Agape, while meaning brotherly love, can just be about love and in this case of a girlfriend (could be boyfriend it is 2015...)

    He doesn't want this love to die, he knows he messed up and that her words now hurt him, but its all he wants to hear. He is totally heartbroken.

    The rest of the song kinda repeats this sentiment "how can i go on without you" "i'm scared" "tell me how to get over this"

    Thankfully i've never had my heart broken, but i'm pretty sure this accurately portrays the emotions.

    Song MeaningAgape is not just love in the general sense. There are 3 words in classical Greek that are interpreted as love. Agape is the highest level and refers to the love God has for his people or people for God. It also includes higher concepts such as the love of truth or wisdom. Patriotism and love of country may also be included in the term agape.

    I think the song is really about that quest for meaning, for truth and understanding. If it was about love for lost romance or something the term agape would not have been used. Losing sight of purpose in our lives is much more devastating than losing a spouse or lover. That's what this song is saying, that the higher truths, meaning, purpose are the things we cannot lose.

    The song writer clearly knows the difference between agape, philos and amor, in my mind there's no doubt. Their understanding of classical philosophy and mythology is evidenced in so many of their songs. Look at a song like Elysium to see a vivid example of that.
