Cold as ice
And more bitter than a december
Winter night
That's how I treated you
And I know that I
I sometimes tend to loose my temper
And I cross the line
Yeah that's the truth


I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say
Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

All along
I tried to pretend it didn't matter
If I was alone
Deep down I know
If you were gone
For even a day I wouldn't know which way to turn
Coz I'm lost without you.

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say
Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

I get kind of dark
Let it go too far
I can be obnoxious at times
But try and see my heart
Coz I need you need now
So don't let me down
You're the only thing in this world I would die without.

Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

    Indeed, it has two meanings. One is obviously about love. Other is about the two sides, which every person has. Good and evil. I think it's about the struggle people have on balancing two sides. Sometimes good is on top and sometimes the bad one. They can hate eachother, they can be hidden, but no matter what, they both always exist and need eachother to make the whole person with character and personality.

    I think that the song can have two meanings. One being where you're in a relationship that may not be going to well, but you know that it'd be worse to leave, because they know you better than you know yourself. The other meaning is the one shown in the music video, where everyone has two sides to themselves, and you can't shut out your other side, because in order to be "balanced" so to speak, you need both your good and bad side to be whole.

    There is always part of us that is always right, but it gat hiden by somany things in so many ways, people don't know who we really are, cause still we pretending, n living a lie, and that is the darkest part of our life which looks perfact for others, n our real part about to left us, tyred of telling us what right is, what make us feel blessed n real is, cause we keep ignoring it, by the time it left us, we don't even know what we up to, don't even know which path we on, n drive our selfes insen, n say please come back our real part, we lost with out you, dat is what really he try to meant for me.

This song means so much to so many people! You all know what I'm talking about if you love someone so much! This song is just so meaning full to me and other people! So happy that there is actually a wonderful song that so many people can relate too! :)

    People saying that the meaning is oxygen they are wrong I know it has that in the video but that's not the meaning. The real meaning is that he found love once and was a bit tempered so he left them without thinking but now he is regretting it. I know that because it's pretty obvious coz he says 'i really need you near me' so in the end he can't without the person and is so frustrated with himself that he kills himself.
    There is also another thing that it means. There is always a bad and good side of you. That's his problem. He can't controll his bad side and goes mad that's why he is bad tempered. It's kind of like a devil and angel. The reason why he was in the bad side is because of what had happened. I think he broke up with someone or something like that.
    Well those are my meanings of this song hope you agree with me :)
