I want to watch it all fall until it’s dark
You both look exactly the same at night
I’d arranged the bed like crosses,
Watched them fall into the floor
It made me stop and forget what we were fighting for

It’s like everything that I ever have imagined
Is coming true today

There is cost my friend for living some other dream
To bind a consequence
It comes and goes in seasons around here, I thawed again
There’s nothing left around to yield a sorry ignorance

If I do let go I hope you never see
There is no one there that’s waiting after me
And I hope if there is one thing I let go
It is the way that we cope

Now I hope that there is one thing that we know
From the way that you and I will wander off
So we won’t become a lifeless load
That wanders around and hopes for sorrow

I know
I know
I know
I know

    General CommentRegarding the "cope" line, I take it mean something more about using faith as ignorance. In the previous line ("If I do let go, I hope you never see / there is no one there that's waiting after me"), he expresses the hope that when he dies, the person he cares about can hold onto the idea that he's being looked after in heaven, instead of considering the possibility that there's no afterlife. In the line "I hope if there is one thing I let go, it is the way that we cope", I think he's furthering those feelings to say that he wishes he could forget/leave alone/"let go" the way that people deal with loss by telling themselves their loved ones are in a better place even if they don't really believe it. (This is just my reading of Andy's words, and maybe not what he meant by them at all.)

    General Comment"And I hope if there is one thing I let go it is the way that we cope" - love this line meaning that once we've let something go and moved past it we don't have to cope with it
