You said you'd light a candle
And you'd say a prayer for me.
I feel the light has dimmed and gone.
Half the world is begging
While the other half steals.
Where did everything go wrong?

Some days I can't believe,
Others I'm on my knees,
Trying to be heard.

I was your anger,
And you were my fear.
Now that it's over
Of course it's so clear.
But you were no angel
And I was no sin.
Somehow I can't let it go.
I can't let it go.

And half the world is sleeping
While the other half dreams.
You close your eyes
And then you're gone.
And maybe my intentions
Have been misunderstood.
I know you feel so beautifully wronged.

Some days I can't believe,
Others I'm on my knees,
Hoping I belong.

I was your anger,
And you were my fear.
Now that it's over
Of course it's so clear.
But you were no angel
And I was no sin.
Somehow I can't let it go.
I can't let it go.

And laughter is my soul's release,
But we're not smiling anymore.
Can't we try to win this peace?
Cause we're never gonna win,
Never gonna win this war.

I was your anger,
And you were my fear.
Now that it's over
Of course it's so clear.
But you were no angel
And I was no sin.
Somehow I can't let it go.
I can't let it go.

    General Commenti agree, even though he does actually say 'you', its probably still right. after reading it a few times, with that in my mind, i see that it is right.

    but you could also relate to some parts with a lover or partner youve split up with, but somehow feel something for.

    overall thought, id say its about his father.
