It's not quite a mystery.
I'm the one who's insecure,
You're the one that makes believe,
That we're all okay, we're doing fine,
When we're both fighting just to stay,
To stay alive,
A fragile state of mind,
That I can't quite survive.

Without a doubt, I need your help.
I know you've heard me ask before,
But come on girl, I need to tell you now,
I know what I've done wrong.

The only way out of here is the way I've avoided for all my life.
There's so many things I wanna say,
But there's too many things still in the way.
I'm lost, please help me find my place.
You're the only one, please lead me out of the dark.
Please lead me out of the dark.
Please lead me out of the dark.

I'm moving on, I'll promise change,
If you will let me in again, I swear today,
I'll be a better man.
I'll be who I was then.

It's been a long two years,
I can't change the past,
I've she'd so many tears,
Can't believe I've lasted this long.
I see now that I'm wrong.

The only way out of here is the way I've avoided for all my life.
There's so many things I wanna say,
But there's too many things still in the way.
I'm lost, please help me find my place.
You're the only one, please lead me out of the dark.
Please lead me out of the dark,

    I think it's about being in a bad state of mind and he's reaching out to this girl who means a lot to him. It has a lot of lines that could be interpreted as depression or even suicide references, for example "the only way out of here is the way I've avoided for all my life", and "we're both fighting just to stay, to stay alive, a fragile state of mind that I can't quite survive." It's almost as though they're in a destructive relationship where they both suffer mentally (e.g. Depression), and he's trying to reach out to her, but she "makes believe that we're all okay, we're doing fine, when we're both fighting just to stay, to stay alive". It could mean a lot of things to different people, but the multiple references to darkness, needing help, and a "fragile state of mind" make me think of psychological issues that interfere with the relationship, whether it be romantic or not. The second verse goes more into the idea of a relationship that's had issues and he's trying to reach out to her and apologise and "promise change". "It's been a long two years" and "I've shed so many tears" suggest that it was a hard relationship with many complications.

    This song relates to me a lot, he's saying pretty much the same thing I said to my ex girlfriend so the meaning is pretty clear. He's saying that he lost the girl he loved with all of his heart, because he changed and was not the same person he was at the start. He's saying that losing her has ruined his life and put him into depression (the dark) and only she can lead him out of it. He's begging her to take him back and he's willing to do anything just to be with her again, he'll even give up the life he lives.
