Lyric discussion by SorrowUnleashed 

Because I heard this version on the OC so long ago and felt like explaining what I think it means here.. I think this song is about someone whose loved one is dying. The person is trying to convince the one who is dying that it doesn't hurt them, when in reality they're mad with pain. "If I only could make a deal with God and get Him to swap our places..." The person would much rather be the one dying as they cannot imagine living without the one who is dying. "You don't want to hurt me, but see how deep the bullet lies..." Finally the person is admitting how much pain they're in. "..C'mon darling, let me steal this moment from you now.." Everyone is surrounded by the person's deathbed, and the other one who isn't dying is pleading to get them to swap places one last time. Basically, I think it's about someone who would rather die then see their loved one die.
