Right under my feet
There's air
Made of bricks
Pulls me down
Turns me weak
For you
I find myself
Repeating like
A broken tune
And I'm forever
Excusing
Your intentions
And I give in
To my pretendings
Which forgive you
Each time
Without me knowing
They melt my heart
To stone

[Chorus:]
And I hear your words
That I made up
You say my name
Like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head
I'm the only one in love
I'm the only one in love

Each and every time
I turn around to leave
I feel my heart
Begin to burst
And bleed
So desperately
I try to link it
With my head
But instead
I fall back
To my knees
As you tear your way
Right through me
I forgive you
Once again
Without me knowing
You've burnt
My heart to stone

(Chorus)

Why do you
Steal my hand
Whenever
I'm standing
My own ground
You build me up
Then leave me dead

Well

(Chorus)

    I believe it is someone who is struggling with the knowledge that they must move on in life, but can't seem to bring themselves to do so. In that, they keep going back to a situation they know will bring them back down to their knees, but continue to do so. After all, "knowing" what will happen is much safer than moving on into the "unknown".

    Un requited love...!! Someone who's in love with someone who just doesn't feel the same. She keeps going back and hoping his feelings will grow, but they never do!! She cannot walk away. Just like me :(

    Kind of the typical story of "i like someone but he isn't real. " she keeps falling for a guy who isn't very trust worthy. But she sees something different in him. She keeps going back and "giving into her pretendings which forgive him" and even tho she may be aware of what he is doing she can't help but to love him. And "forgive him each time"
