So you lost your trust,
And you never should have,
And you never should have,
But don't break your back,
If you ever see this,
Don't answer that.

In a bullet proof vest,
With the windows all closed,
I'll be doing my best,
I'll see you soon,

In a telescope lens,
And when all you want is friends,
I'll see you soon.

So they came for you,
They came snapping at your heels,
They come snapping at you heels,
But don't break your back,
If you ever say this,
But don't answer that.

In a bullet proof vest,
With the windows all closed,
I'll be doing my best,
I'll see you soon,

In a telescope lens,
And when all you want is friends,
I'll see you soon,
I'll see you soon.

I know you lost your trust,
I know you lost your trust,
I know, don't lose your trust,

    The meaning of this song is just so deep that it will apply to different situations we may find ourselves in, after losing trust. The song understands the lost and promises a new beginning.

    Whenever i hear this song, it reminds me of a guy whom i fall for. It hurts to feel that he's already taken but then i'm still hoping that one day i'll see him soon.

    To me, this song is about someone you want to trust you but they're trying so hard to not let you in because they're scared. So beautiful x

    To me this song is about someone going through troubles or maybe feeling lonely and kind of just giving up hope on things or "losing trust" and about how he is going to "see you soon". To me, this could apply to maybe a loved one coming to see you soon, maybe someone you've never met before about to come into your life so just hold on a little longer, or even a much deeper meaning maybe applying to god seeing you soon when you get to heaven. Idk just my thoughts but such a gorgeous song!!
