Come close,
Lay next to me
Come close,
Lay next to me
I need to tell you something important

So stay close,
Remain next to me
I need to feel important
It's your eyes that I don't believe
And my heart, you will, you will mislead
Do you know the consequence that comes with having such confidence?

Holding all the weight in my life
Then you turn and you walk away from me

So what is this now, you ask of me
What makes your pain such an urgency?
Now I want out, so plain to see
Once again my dear, a brand new tragedy

Holding all the weight in my life
Then you turn and you walk away from me
Holding all the weight in my life
Then you turn and you walk away from me

Bleeding all the strength from my life
Then you turn and you run away from me
You're bleeding all the strength from my life
Then you turn and you run away from me

    Like someone before said, part of the meaning to the song, i feel, is "someone needing to speak of their problems and difficulties in life but the one the person seeks help from just walks away. " that is definately a big part of feeling "weightless. " but what if, sometimes, that one person is -always- just running to the other one in the relationship, again like someone said "using
    [them] for strength. Brings [them] down and leaves. All too many times co dependance is mistaken for something real. " it's possible that this has happened so many times in the past, the initial love that was there in the beginning is being replaced by selfishness... Perhaps on both sides. One partner feels pushed to their limits and all of their strength is "bleeding out" trying to constantly help the other partner, that they've reached the point where they just -don't- want to listen anymore. Can you really blame them in that circumstance for wanting to feel "weightless" ie. Freed from always solving the other person's problems? Like the lyrics say "so what is this now, you ask of me, what makes your pain such an urgency? " i think you can interpret it in both those ways...
