You say "I love you, boy"
I know you lie
I trust you all the same
I don't know why

'Cos when my back is turned
My bruises shine
Our broken fairytale
So hard to hide

I still believe
It's you and me to the end of time

When we collide we come together
If we don't we'll always be apart
I'll take a bruise, I know you're worth that
When you hit me, hit me hard

Sitting in a wishing hall
Hoping it stays right
Feet cast in solid stone
I got Gilligan's eyes

I still believe
It's you and me to the end of time

When we collide we come together
If we don't we'll always be apart
I'll take a bruise, I know you're worth that
When you hit me, hit me hard

'Cos you said our love
Was letting us go, guess what
Our future is for
Many of horror
Our future's for
Many of horror

I still believe
It's you and me to the end of time

When we collide we come together
If we don't we'll always be apart
I'll take a bruise, Iknow you're worth that
When you hit me, hit me hard

    Like many others, my interpretation is that the song is about an unconditional love and the struggles he feels to understand the feeling. But the idea to "collide" or a collision is a violent act. It exudes a power that one, both or none involved will walk away from. If they don't work things out or "collide" they will never resolve their issues. She believes love is moving on and letting go of him but he believes he needs her and her love. Being humble, putting aside pride and ego for the betterment of a relationship isn't easy. The guy is willing to do that for her and because she means that much to him. It will never be easy (past, present and future) but he always believes in her and their future together.

    Its about a guy in a relationship with a girl who is emotionally abusive. Maybe not intentionally abusive, but she keeps giving him emotional "bruises"; she hurts him often. Despite all of this, the guy still loves her very much. I think during the chorus it means that after she's done hurting him, the come together with force ("collide"). "our future is for/ many of horror" i think means that she will still hurt him horribly but he will always stand by her.

    Its a beautiful song about a guy that can't stop loving someone, even when her partner is slowly going, he knows they will always be together. "our future is for many of horror" is tough to crack, but i think its to do mean in the future, he will be hurt more but they will still be.
