I, I can't get these memories out of my mind
And some kind of madness has started to evolve
I, I tried so hard to let you go
But some kind of madness is swallowing me whole, yeah

I have finally seen the light
And I have finally realized
What you mean
Oh oh oh

And now, I need to know is this real love
Or is it just madness keeping us afloat?
And when I look back at all the crazy fights we had
Like some kind of madness
Was taking control

And now I have finally seen the light
And I have finally realized
What you need

And now I have finally seen the end (Finally seen the end)
And I'm not expecting you to care (Expecting you to care)
But I have finally seen the light (Finally seen the light)
I have finally realized (Realized)
I need to love
I need to love

Come to me,
Trust in your dream
Come on and rescue me
Yes I have known, I can be wrong
Maybe I'm too headstrong
Our love is

    My InterpretationMy interpretation ties in with imagery from the video. I like to think of it as about a person who's been afraid of letting his emotions get out of control, afraid of commitment, afraid of really immersing himself in the emotion of love. Maybe he was hurt badly once, and has built up walls, has built up protections to keep his emotions protected and his mind nice and orderly--this is represented by the police in the video.

    So now he's falling in love proper, in spite of all his defenses. He's realizing he needs the whole experience of love, and can't resist it even if he wanted to. His repressed feelings are exploding inside of him, and it feels like anarchy overwhelming him, the rioters overwhelming the police. Will it destroy him or fulfill him? It's left ambiguous and maybe that's right too.
