Apocalyptica – Not Strong Enough lyrics

I'm not strong enough to stay away.
Can't run from you
I just run back to you.
Like a moth I'm drawn into your flame,
Say my name, but it's not the same.
You look in my eyes I'm stripped of my pride.
And my soul surrenders and you bring my heart to it's knees.

[Chorus:]
And it's killin' me when you're away, I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
I'm so confused, So hard to choose.
Between the pleasure and the pain.
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind.
And I'm not strong enough to stay away

I'm not strong enough to stay away
What can I do
I would die without you
In your presence my heart knows no shame
I'm not to blame
Cause you bring my heart to it's knees

[Chorus:]
And it's killin' me when you're away, I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
I'm so confused, So hard to choose.
Between the pleasure and the pain.
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind.
And I'm not strong enough to stay away

There's nothing I can do
My heart is chained to you
And I can't get free
Look what this love did to me

[Chorus:]
And it's killin' me when you're away, I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
I'm so confused, So hard to choose.
Between the pleasure and the pain.
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind.
And I'm not strong enough to stay away

    This song means that they're not strong enough to stay away from the person they love because without them, they feel dead. They're drawn to that little something that they has that love so much. They're brain says it's wrong, the heart says it feels so right. In they're heart, they feel no shame. It's just the feeling of weakness that makes the heart want more even though the mind is telling them to leave and the heart often over powers the mind. But the deciding between the pleasure and the pain part, means they get the pleasure of being with them or the pain of not having them at all. So I guess, what this all means is, they can't let go because subconciously they don't want to and they can't.

    In my opinion this song is about loving the wrong person you want to leave because there's nothing left to fight for but its always to hard to just walk away. Not necessarily cheating but infatuation with the wrong person or even being in love with someone you can't stand.

    If you want to know the original meaning of the song just please also pay attention to the video of the song. That shows the song is totally based on the illuminatii(secret society). He wants to choose the false maseeha(christ) because he will give him the power, wealth, fame (pleasure) and if he not then he would move to the real world face the challenges and that makes him pain. So he choose the short path to the success but knows that this makes the bad (e. G cause you bring my heart to it's knees, and I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
    Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind. Like a moth I'm drawn into your flame, etc).
    So he is in problem but at the end you see in the video the girls takes the guys with her and their eyes were close like dead. Hope you people understand the true and actual meanings behind the majority of songs.

    I think its all about option. He loves her too much but he knows the bad effects or the bad things that would happens if he lives with her but on the other side he cannot loves without her because he loves her too much. So he don't know what to choose between the pleasure and the pain. So that's why he says em not strong enough to stay away.

    Like right after my ex boyfreind & I broke up, I was really heart broken. So was he. We knew it was for the better. He lie to me & betray me. Yet, he wants me back. I know what he done to me was wrong but I can't help it. I still love him. Even though months past, he moved on. But this song explains everything how I feel as today.
