We were one in words
You finished my sentence
I could never attract tomorrow
It pushes me aside

I sink in waters deep
Your presence kept me floating far from where secrets lie
Maybe in another life time I can be the first you meet

I once read a poem
Held my breath but that moments gone
First time I felt life somewhat hurt
I need an option, a reason, and some hope

Yell at me I want to be, your light that shines
But my ground is shaking and I might fall
I wish that I could say, I wish that I could be your evil in a closet

Yell at me I want to be, your light that shines
But my ground is shaking and I might fall
I wish that I could say, I wish that I could be your evil in a closet

    General Commentthe first thing to take note of in this song is that the first 2 paragraphs are written in the past tense while the last one is written in the present.

    now this is a story about this guy who falls in love with some woman who is already going out with someone else. he tried to convince her to go out with him as he says " i once read a poem- held my breath - but that moments gone" which implies he read her a poem about how he felt for her but she didnt break up with her boyfriend for him. she does love him never the less as he says " maybe in another life time- i could be the first you meet" which implies that if she had met him first she would have gone out with him.

    now i think after realising she wont break up with her boyfriend for him he has tried to forget her and no longer see her, like i said the first 2 paragraphs are written in the past tense which implies she is no longer around eg " your presence kept me floating" which implies she is not present anymore. now i think the secret is the the lonliness and pain he feels now she is no longer around. when she was around she kept him floating above these feelings.

    now for the last paragraph which seems to have confussed so many people. like i said above i think he told her that if he cant have her he dosnt want to see her anymore, as every time he saw her it only reminds him what he cant have. but here he says " yell at me- i want to be your light that shines" now i think he wants her to yell at him, to tell him to stop only thinking about himself because a) it would show him how much his presence means to her even if she wont break up with her boyfriend for him,and b) he still wants to be there for her " i want to be your light that shines" but his love for her is being forgotten in his pain " But my ground's shaking and I might fall "
    now the last part " I wish that I could say... I wish I could be your evil in a closet" is saying thatt he wants to be her evil secret, ie her love for him is the secret
