I can't see through the tears in my eyes
I can't see through the tears in my eyes.
I can't breathe

I feel I failed
I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine
To make you shine

They said, this could never happen
They said, we could never be
Are you, telling me you listened?

I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine
I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine
I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine

So there's no you and me
And we can't live this way forever
Forever
You said you'd run away
You said you'd run away
You said you'd run away with me
You'd run away

That we'd escape from the ordinary
That we'd escape from the world that tied us down
That we'd escape from the ordinary
That we'd escape from the world that kept us apart

So now this is over and the world falls upon me
I never expected to be here alone
The shadows are forming as we burst into flames
Why does this end this way?

Why does this end this way?

    Basically, he was in love with his best friend and felt like they were meant to be, but she just wanted to be friends and she didn't love him like that. So in the end, he thought he would never be alone and already was and didn't know o_o

    Kau harus mengambil pilihan itu walaupun sulit. Pasti bisa jika usaha dengan keras. Setelah itu kau dapat merasakan kesenangan, ketenangan dan kekuatan

    I think its about a girl who had all these expectations for him and because he didnt exactly meet all of them she broke his heart and left him and he didnt expect to be alone.

    The meaning of this song to me is the girl left the guy out of no where and broke his heart in pieces and she didn't show any emotion of caring. /:
