As Cities Burn – Of Want And Misery: The Nothing That Kills lyrics

I watched you float away on a wave of want and misery
Now i've got to find you
I watched you float away on whatever caught your eye
Now i've got to find you
'cause i've got to keep your head above the water
While the current pulls me under

I will hang my life in the space between the noose and your neck
I won't let you die just yet

I will love you even when you won't let me
And you will kill me by doing nothing
But i know it's not you, my dear,
I know it's not you
I know it's not you, my dear,
It's the nothing that kills

I can't save you
Control is something out of mine
No, i can't save you
Control is something out of my control

I can't save you but i will love you
No, i can't save you but i will love you
I'd like to think that this is love
Lost in second chances without end

    I've heard people explain it as a relationship between the narrator and someone he cares about that doesn't believe in God. To me, it seems like God is speaking to someone who has fallen away from Christianity.
    "I will love you even when you won't let me" basically sums up the fact that Jesus will love you no matter what.
    "I can't save you, but I will love you". Jesus wants us to open up our hearts and accept Him into our lives, but we have to make that choice. He cannot force us to believe, but he will always love us.
