How stubborn are those scars when they won't fade away?
Or just a gentle reminder that now are better days?

We'll be home soon,
So dry your eyes.
You'll be okay.
(You'll be okay.)

Oh my god the water it's rising, it's rising.
You just have to believe in me,
Failing that I'll ride this storm alone.

We can still make it out.
I can help you through this.
But you have to take my hand.
I can take you home,
Take my hand, Take my hand.

I should've known the tides were getting higher.
We can still survive,
They think we're drowning,
But our heads are still above the waves.
(Above the waves)
(I should've known the tides were getting higher...
We can still survive.
Above the waves.
I should've known the tides were getting higher.
I should've known the tides were getting higher.
We can still survive.)

You never said goodbye(Goodbye)
You never said goodbye(Goodbye)
You never said goodbye(Goodbye)
You never said goodbye
And now you're on your OWN

You never said goodbye,
You never said goodbye,

    I kinda interpret as a metaphor for we can still continue through the hard times I don't think it is literal

    Since the song says "You'll be okay." and "I can help you through this, but you have to take my hand."...I think it has a meaning to it. I don't think he wrote it just to write it. It could be something completely different from what we all think, but I think there is some literal meaning to it. Maybe he was trying to speak out to people who want to commit suicide. None of us will know what it really is about. Maybe it has something to do with someone he cared about killing themselves. Maybe it didn't have to be them drowning, but I still think it has something to do with someone killing themselves.

    The meaning of this song is his girlfriend misses him because he is in a war and she misses him and shes living with so much pain and sorrow in her body that she just decides to end her life so she doesn't have to feel alone anymore.

    I think this is about two lovers who are caught in a storm, maybe a hurricane, and the guy is saying that this was being foreshadowed, like a prophecy. The two of their heads are above the water, and the guy thinks they can survive. I think the guy dies, and the girl lives. The girl never said goodbye...

    He is trying to help her through something and they can make it through, if she lets him help. But she kills herself before he can and now she is on her own
