"Halo" as written by Thomas Allan Flowers, Douglas James Eldridge and Richard C. Ivanisevich....
And it's always little things
That to the surface brings
The comfort in the pain
The fear behind the smile
We lose along the way
The things we leave behind
Along the precipice
Of things we should not climb
And I'm the first in line
There's an anchor around my heart
Dragging me down
Beneath the waves in silence I fall
There's a halo above my head
Spinning me 'round
Cause I don't know if I'm alive or dead
A dagger in my hand
Bleeding me dry

And it's always little things
That to the surface brings
The space you need to breathe
Before the curtain call
The light that leads the way
Before you hit the wall
The mountain that you climb
Just to take a fall
For blind among the blind

There's an anchor around my heart
Dragging me down
Beneath the waves in silence I fall
There's a halo above my head
Spinning me 'round
Cause I don't know if I'm alive or dead

There's a dagger in my hand
Bleeding me dry

And all we have to lose is time
And what lose we leave behind
Stay around and we will shine

    General CommentI agree with emopunkgirl22...
    i think it's about loving somebody, who don't know you are there or don't love yot the way you love him/her.
    But i doesn't matter, because you are always going to be there even if it kills you...
    I first heard the song and didn't like it that much, but after i knew the lyrics, i loved it!

    General CommentI was singing this song in a dream I had once and my future boyfriend walked over to me. He sat behind me and sang it with me covering over my mistakes.
