Explosions in my head that just won’t quit
A train has crashed into the wall around my heart and left the old me dead
My breathing in the night when you’re not their
The silence ringing through my ears
And all I want to do is hear your voice
But you're not their

[Drawn together
Painter’s brush stroke
Sleight of hand
We won’t go up in smoke
Fates colliding
Love undying

Like the rising tide
Beating hearts grow but never die
To simplify
I’ll stand by your side
Close my eyes
Hope will never die]

And take away the pain of being me
Soothe my soul caress my heart and
End my fear all my bad memories
Like gunshots heard against a silent night
My love is louder then these words
They’re stronger then the rest, unstoppable


Like the rising tide
Beating hearts grow but never die
To simplify
I’ll stand by your side
Close my eyes
Hope will never die


Like the rising tide
Beating hearts grow but never die
To simplify
I’ll stand by your side
Close my eyes
Hope will never die

    Basically this means
    this person got broken up with or broke up with someone they really truly loved
    and they really really want them back
    but all they have is memories
    hes changed into a new person and wants her to see that
    but she wont take him back
    and really really wants her to come back into his life
    in the part
    "beating hearts grow but never die" is my favorite part because that means there is still hope for you realtionship with someone you truly loved

    This song is about when two people are so perfectly matched that there is no other explanation than the fact that they are meant to be together. The two were once together but something tragic separated the two. When the guy looks at all the beauty around him he thinks about the love they used to share. The beauty of the world and the woman are so overwhelming that he is torn to pieces. The pain is unbearable for him and he can’t stand to even walk through the streets because other couples remind him of his loneliness. In the beginning he felt helpless and he felt like his body was caving in on itself, making it difficult to make it through the day with more than a frown sewed onto his face. After he starts to get over his sadness, he continues to feel the pain in the distance, this makes him feels worse, because the feeling is there and casts over his actions like a shadow. When he realizes the simple, little feeling of emptiness will always be a part of him, he gets mad. He isn’t mad that he is alone, just that she is not his to be with. He feels the inner part of him tearing at his skin, like he was possessed with his worst enemy. But through all the pain and suffering he still has a hope. , so strong that he thinks the bonds of his love will hold on to her no matter how far she is. He knows that his commitment is strong enough to resist any temptations. His love is overwhelming and he won’t let it settle.

    I believe that this song isn't about the relationship not working, rather, I think that it's saying that they will always be together. "beating hearts grow but never die" could mean that their love will only grow and will never die. And with "Close my eyes, hope will never die" I think is saying that they just have to put faith in the relationship and that nothing will happen as long he/she doesn't think about anything happening. I could be wrong, but that is my interpretation of it. Either way, I love this song and I love Atreyu!
