I'm standing on the bridge
I'm waiting in the dark
I thought that you'd be here by now

There's nothing but the rain
No footsteps on the ground
I'm listening, but there's no sound

Isn't anyone trying to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home

It's a damn cold night
Trying figure out this life
Won't you, take me by the hand, take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are but I, I'm with you
I'm with you

I'm looking for a place
I'm searching for a face
Is anybody here I know

Cause nothing's going right and
Everythings a mess
And no-one like's to be alone

Isn't anyone trying to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home

It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Won't you, take me by the hand, take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are but I, I'm with you
I'm with you

Oh, why is everything so confusing
Maybe I'm just out of my mind
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah... ah...

It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Won't you, take me by the hand, take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are but I, I'm with you
I'm with you

Take me by the hand, take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are but I, I'm with you

I'm with you

I'm with you.

    Okay I'm only 14 but I think this song is about a girl or a boy waiting for someone who has passed away, and they keep waiting and waiting at a place they always seen them, and it's such a miserable place now without them, the rain is poring down, it's like everything is a dream. They want that specific person to find them, take them somewhere new or back home, and they wont leave until it happens. But it won't ever happen until they leave the world with them by there side. Everything goes so wrong after they leave and you just think that everything's a complete mess, and that life isn't worth it anymore. You just want them back so much. But you know they won't. But in a dream they tell you that they will be there always, just not in a way you will notice them.

    I think its about a girl who ran away from home. She's waiting for someone to chase after her to bring her back but there's nobody. The only person who comes along is a stranger and she feels assured now that he's there, since he's the only one she's got now.

    It means that she was waything for someone she was going to meet that never showed up. And than the looks around for someone who want's to take here somewhere new. She doesn't care aout who it is, she just want to be near someone. Be safe. She don't like to be alone, she wants to be with people that want her well.

    She just want to escape from her current place, where she feel alone. She just cannot decide she want to go back how it was before or move on. She waiting for someone that actually care about her and will always be with her. There when she's lonely, hold her when she about to fall, there to help her to stand up again when she actually fall.
