"Let It Die" as written by and Mark L Holman Dustin Paul Bates....
I cut you into pieces
Searching for your imperfections
I had plans to make you whole
But all my threads couldn't stop the bleeding
There's nothing left, but I'm not leaving
When all I know is you

I've been looking for a way
To bring you back to life
And if I could find a way,
Then I would bring you back tonight
I'd make you look, I'd make you lie
I'd take the coldness from your eyes
But you told me, if you love me
Let it die

Your eyes stare right through me
Ignoring my failed attempts to
Breathe back life into your veins
But I can't start your cold heart beating
You're so far gone, but I'm not leaving
When all I know is you

I've been looking for a way
To bring you back to life
And if I could find a way,
I would bring you back tonight
I'd make you look, I'd make you lie
I'd take the coldness from your eyes
But you told me, if you love me
Let it die

And you left me more dead
Than you'll ever know
When you left me alone

I've been looking for a way
To bring you back to life
And if I could find a way,
I would bring you back tonight
I'd make you look, I'd make you lie
I'd take the coldness from your eyes
But you told me, if you love me
Let it die

Let it die
Let it die
Let it die

    General CommentIn my opinion this is a song about lost love. He had something wonderful and failed to see it and now that he has lost her. He regrets it and will do anything to get her back but it sounds like no matter what he does and no matter how much he loves her she'll never love him again.

    MemoryI believe He is real...
    But all these people, they have so many facts; they made me see reality.
    Reality-
    What a cold, dark, lonely place it is.
    He died. That day, my life changed forever.
    I wanted to kill them.
    I wanted to get revenge; to bring Him back, I suppose.
    I searched for His imperfections, never to find the cure for them.
    There wasn't enough science. Never enough facts to bring Him back to me.
    I was so hateful; at times, I still am.
    Hating them all. Everything, everyone, it was all worthless. All of it was dead.
    Then... He told me,
    Let it die.

    Reality-
    How diluted it truly was.
    In the midst of death-
    There it is.

    My InterpretationI hurt her. I planned to heal her lifetime of scars. To excise the dead and make whole what was broken. But I caused her to doubt herself. Because of me she saw herself the way I saw others.
    I gave everything I had to try and stem the hemorrhagic flood of doubts and insecurities that plagued her. But the stitches burst, tearing still greater wounds into her heart.
    Looking me in the eye, she told me to let her go. I tried, but the only thing in my life worth having was her. I failed. I kept bringing her back. Because of me she looked and saw. I made her overlook her doubts and insecurities.
    Time and again, I breathed life into her, into us. It always ended the same.
    "Let it die"
    The woman I loved died, day by day, breath by breath. She grew colder. Her heart hardened, froze against me. She looked through me to those she had loved and lost.
    "If you love me, let it die"
    "If I could find a way, I'd bring you back tonight. I'd make you look, I'd make you lie. I'd take the coldness from your eyes. But you told me, 'If you love me, let it die!'"
    But I can't start her frozen heart. And now, she's left me more dead than she'll ever know, more dead than she'll ever see, ever understand. I can't return life from death. And now I'm the one dying. I can't ignore my failures. I can't forget the love, the life. I can't forget the loss, the pain. I die day by day, breath by breath. Now my heart is cold. Love is dead.
    Now I tell my future "If you love me, let it die."
