I tried again, I fell again
To find out for myself
It hurts
For a lifetime
Your picture rests there for a lifetime
And for a lifetime i will dream of you
I prepare the mantle inside of my heart
With your photograph to sooth the scars
Unable to be erased unable to be forgotten
As i grow older
I will dream

    General Commenti love the lyrics but i dont think its about how you feel after a break up .. i think its about how you feel when the one you love is so close but to far to grasp.. "i tried again i fell again to find out for myslef" finding out if the love you give is returned. "it hurts for a life time" finding out its not returned... " i will dream of you" even thouhg that love is not returned u know you will always remeber it

    General CommentMaybe the song means that he wishes the one he loved, whether it be lover or relative or friend, would be back because they've died. When someone really close to you passes away, you can't stop thinking of them. It's always sad to see that happen or to experience it, but we must move on..it's a part of life.

    General Commentthis song is basically the same as five year winter its just not expressing the harsh feelings over the breakup and hes saying he wont let go "and for a lifetime, i will dream of you..." "unable to be erased, unable to be forgotten.." and how sad he is about it. so basically its about loving someone when they dont love you back and the feeling you feel after a breakup.
