Our legs begin to break
We've walked this path for far too long
My lungs, they start to ache
But still we carry on
I'm choking on my words
Like I got a noose around my neck
I can't believe it's come to this
I can't believe it's come to this
And dear, I fear
That this ship is sinking tonight

I
won't give up on you
These scars won't tear us apart
So don't give up on me
It's not too late for us
And I'll save you from yourself
And I'll save you from yourself

Our legs begin to break
We've walked this path for far too long
My lungs begin to ache
But still we carry on
I'm choking on my words
Like I got a noose around my neck

I'm not coming home tonight
I'm not coming home tonight
'Cause dear I fear, dear I fear
I'm not coming home tonight
I'm not coming home tonight
'Cause dear I fear
This ship is sinking
Is there hope for us?
Can we make it out alive?
I can taste the failure on your lips
Is there hope for us?
Can we make it out alive?
I can taste the failure

Close your eyes
There's nothing we can do
But sleep in this bed that we made for ourselves
You're trapped in your past
Like it's six feet under

I won't give up on you
These scars won't tear us apart
So don't give up on me
It's not too late for us
I'll save you from yourself
I'll save you from yourself
I'll save you from yourself
I'll save you from yourself

Try to numb the pain
With alcohol and pills
But it won't repair your trust
You can't stand on two fucking feet
With a substance as a crutch

I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll sing this symphony
I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll sing this symphony of sympathy

I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll sing this symphony of sympathy
I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll sing this symphony of sympathy

    Agreed. I'm not their biggest fan to be honest but some of there songs have some great meanings and stories behind them.

    Indeed it is a story of love with alot of struggle.

    i think it's about a guy, who's in love with a girl who does pills and drinks alcohol and he loves her so much, that he "won't give up" on her, because he loves her that much. and he thinks he can save her from herself. and this has gone on so long that their legs begin to break and their lungs begin to ache. their love is the only thing keeping them together.

    I'm well proud to have posted the lyrics to this. :]

    But i think the meaning is, he won't give up on her no matter what happens.
    Even after his legs begin to break, and his lungs start to ache.
    And through all the scars.
    Such a good song to be honest.

    Obviously, it's about a relationship that's been falling apart more and more and on the verge of ending but he doesn't want to give up because he still believes they can try and save it, but she can't try to fix it with drugs or alcohol. So, he's not going home, not because he wants to avoid it, but because he's trying to get some alone time to find a way to fix himself, but he also wants her to fix what she started doing in the relationship (substance abuse) and other things. He's constantly reminding her that he won't give up on her and he can help her through this, so she won't think she's in it alone.

    He is upset 'cos she is dying. She is letting herself die alone and in pain because she failed someone she loved. And he loves her so he wont give up but she is too blinded by her failure to see how much he cares.
