This
is the last time That
I'm ever gonna come here tonight This
is the last time - I will fall Into
a place that fails us all - inside And

I can see the pain in you And
I can see the love in you But
fighting all the demons will take time It
will take time The

angels they burn inside for us And
Are we ever Are
we ever gonna learn to fly The
devils they burn inside of us And
Are we ever gonna come back down Come
around I'm
always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold This

is the last time That
I'm ever gonna give in tonight Are
there angels or devils crawling here I?
just want to know what blurs and what is clear - to see Well

I can see the pain in you And
I can see the love in you And
fighting all the demons will take time It
will take time The

angels they burn inside for us Are
we ever Are
we ever gonna learn to fly The
devils they burn inside of us And
Are we ever gonna come back down - come around I'm
always gonna worry about the things that could break us If

I was to give in - give it up -
and then Take
a breath - make it deep Cause
it might be the last one you get Be
the last one That
could make us cold You
know that they could make us cold I'm
always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold

    I believe this is about a relationship which has so many problems either personal or with each other. The singer talks about this being the last time that he or she will keep on trying to keep this failing relationship going… dropping his pride to go after the one you love for the first verse and, relating to himself in the second. The lyrics talk about seeing the pain and love in the other person making it difficult to leave because he or she feels the same way too. Fighting their “demons” or whatever it is their problem is which is pulling them away from each other will take time, which means more fights and problems, but is willing to risk it. For me, the angels signify the good in them, the love which wants to fly or flourish while the devils signify the overwhelming problems they’re facing. I also think that the person is really confused on what to do… a sort of purgatory in between the angels OR devils on whether to keep trying or stop and he is deciding to fight one last time. What he does “worry about” is how to make things work when the things that make them cold (problems) are in the way. In the last line of the second verse the lyrics say, “I just want to know what blurs and what is clear to see”. I believe this means that the writer still cannot determine what he or she will do because his mind is making up all kinds of scenarios to justify his/her/their actions. The writer knows that his mind is “blurry” or not thinking straight and wants to know which of these scenarios/feelings he can trust. My take on the bridge is that if he were to give in to these feeling and risk it, the writer’s partner should take the risk as well --- that he or she should “take a breath, make it deep” as if they will dive right into deep water together… and if they do take it and do this last ditch effort, they may fail, that their actions here can pull them apart or “make or break” them. Hmmm… just a thought and it may just be me, the way that part is sung “Be the last one that could make us cold - That they could make us cold” the cold here is sung differently like three words are infused “cry” (there is definitely a letter “R” being pronounced) in the beginning, “cold” in the middle then “love” when he sings the “la la la” part (some of you may find that helpful, others may think it’s taking it too far. It’s up to you). Again, this is my take on it. Different life experiences yield different interpretations so we should respect what others say. Let me know what you think

    It's about the typical situations of every love story. There is always ups and downs; problems and solutions; happiness and sorrows;. The artist here is so depressed and confused; he doesn't know what exactly he would believe and he could not make up his mind on how he would act or think about the situation that he is going through with his partner. One thing is sure, they are in a win-lose situation, that if only one would try to save what they had, it won't be enough to make their relationship last. He is worried about a lot of things that would probably happen if their problem should not be solve, specifically he was worried that they will become cold with each others feelings; meaning forgetting what they had and have fought for from the very beginning and letting things go without even assessing the value of what they had shared and the worst of it they won't care to forgive each other, call it quits' and consider it as the greatest mistake of their lives. But the artist needs just a little thing called "FAITH". Faith in God in every relationship is very important. Everything came to reality by faith. If you have faith in your love for each other, you can surpass everything with God. With angels. Not with devils. Love bears all things, believes all things, endures all things and love never fails. The artist is asking for one last try. He wants to save everything. And he needs to have faith to do that. To save what they had.

    For me, the song refers to how hard to fight an uphill battle knowing that you likely end up losing at the end. The pain is both felt by two persons; its me listening to the song and one person whom i don't want to leave ever in my life. As time goes by, pain intensifies more and more until one day there is rude awakening--the thing that i worry and scare me the most, which is leaving the person which i'm greatly attached to and developed a great bond with, will eventually and inevitably become real.

    For me the song begs for the question "will you give in to doing the wrong thing or stay doing what is right? "

    I guess the song tells about someone who face uncertainty, worries & conflicts in his self. It could talk abt love & hate felt at the same time...
