She's got black hair
And she has got a black dress
She's pretending
That her life is a mess
But I cannot rest
With so many worries
I can't lie down
And say I am done

I live 'cause I need more light
I hope I can change today
She would never think of changing
Too much fucking emo, it's false (I know)

She stops me in the street
And asks me to follow

I would if I could
If I wouldn't mind breaking her.

    I think these 2 lines contain the meaning and purpose behind most of Katatonias music and lyrics.

    I think you can hear in the lyrics his wish for this girl to grow out of her negative state of mind and be a source of light for him.


    when I hear this song I think of the My Chemical Romance - I'm Not Okay song cause it is so uplifting while trying to sell a fake feeling of despair! image that song without the singing, it would sound like your average uh Green Day or Blink182 song.

    at least in Sweden Emo and Goth would be pretty synonymous. I know what type of girl he is singing about, she would be 13-25 and listen to kent, Nightwish, Evanescence, Metallica and My Chemical Romance (this is song is of course a few years older).
