You didn't close the door
Left a crack open
I couldn't ignore the faint possibility
Of having hope in this insanity
That we still could be
But we're stuck floating in between

Put me on the shelf, discipline myself
To let the sparks die out
Shattering anything
That has reflections of you
You

Our eyes were closed
With hearts open wide
Dismissed every rule to abide by
Our bodies undressed the layers of shy
Revealing the truth that was buried inside
Filled up feelings
That now are bursting at the seams

Put me on the shelf, discipline myself
To let the sparks die out
Shattering anything
That has reflections of you
You

Unsure of what are my dreams it seems
You have stolen my slumber
And awakened another
Life within me that is better than any other
Reaching endless heights in never ending nights
That can't be seen, put to bed this dream
Oh-oh-oh-oh-ohh

Put me on the shelf, discipline myself
To let the sparks die out
Shattering anything
That has reflections of you
You

    My InterpretationSo i interpreted this whole thing in my words:

    When you broke up with me, you didn't stop being my best friend.
    Even though it was over, I still had hope that we'd get back together, but that it would be hard, considering we were just friends by then.

    I'm gonna isolate myself, and get angry at myself for missing you so much
    and I'm gonna throw anything and everything away that reminds me of you or us.
    We loved and we loved hard, not paying attention to the future
    We didn't have a normal relationship and we told secrets we couldnt even tell our closest relatives.
    The secrets that were left unshared are now trying to escape my head.
    I'm gonna isolate myself and get angry at myself for missing you so much and I'm gonna trow away anything and everything that reminds me of you or us.
    I can't even dream anymore- you even took my sleep away from me.
    And now, you're with someone else, and gonna end up hurting them, too.
    I'm an amazing person, and I'm gonna do great things, but because of you, I'm never going to realize this any time soon.
    I'm gonna isolate myself and get angry at myself for missing you so much and I'm gonna throw away anything and everything that reminds me of you or us.\

    I hope you guys liked my interpretation and I guess it was easy for me to do so because I'm going through a breakup and it fucking hurts really bad. I thought we loved eachother but he wasn't very glad with me. It was my first relationship and we were together for four months. And I found this song, thinking, "wow.... This is gonna pass, because someone went through exACTLY what I'm going through. And they'e fine now. Not the same person as before, but they're fine enough to the point where they can say they have moved on."

    Anywho, hope you enjoyed and it's okay- they didn't deserve you, anyways.
