Lay beside me, tell me what they’ve done
Speak the words I want to hear, to make my demons run
The door is locked now but it’s opened if you’re true
If you can understand the me, then I can understand the you

Lay beside me, under wicked skies
Through black of day, dark of night, we share this paralyze
The door cracks open but there’s no sun shining through
Black heart scarring darker still, but there’s no sun shining through

No, there’s no sun shining through
No, there’s no sun shining

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, ‘cause I’m the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Come beside me, this won’t hurt, I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she’ll never love again
She lay beside me but she’ll be there when I’m gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes, she’ll be there when I’m gone
Yes, she’ll be there when I’m gone
Dead sure she’ll be there

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, ‘cause I’m the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Lay beside me, tell me what I’ve done
The door is closed, so are your eyes
But now I see the sun, now I see the sun
Yes, now I see it

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
So sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there? ‘Cause I’m the one who waits
The one who waits for you

I take this key
And I bury it in you
Because you’re unforgiven, too

Never free
Never me
‘Cause you’re unforgiven, too

    General CommentMy interpretation probably doesn't matter at this point because so many others have posted already, but I'll give it a go anyway. I feel the lyrics describe an introverted guy who finally finds a girl that understands what it means to be lonely. The "door" spoken of in the song is the guy's soul, and the girl is the only person who has ever been able to make it "crack open." She dies ("The door is closed, so are your eyes"), and he goes on waiting for death, alone again, because she was the only one with the "key" to his soul. I can almost relate to this song...I've yet to meet that girl.
