You loved it when my heart dropped, you paused, stopped, and walked away
Full of content that it went your way

These cuts that I've caused are never too deep to heal
Peel back the bandage, see a scar from countless careless things

And feel yourself drifting, pulled away

Well nothing feels real anymore
I'm not taking my time anymore
To show you how I feel
To show you who I am
Cause it's locked away

We all need to find our way
Cut the loss, just walk away, ooh

Now head towards the light, the dark has no place here
Now head towards the light, the dark has no place here

I don't feel real, I don't feel real
This pain is beating.
I don't feel real, I don't feel real

Well nothing feels real anymore
I'm not taking my time anymore

Now head towards the light, the dark has no place here
Now head towards the light, the dark has no place here

Well nothing feels real anymore
I'm not taking my time anymore
To show you how I feel
To show you who I am
Cause it's locked away

The things we think about at night never lose taste
Now, take the close to find something greater
This wall has finally reached it's end
It's higher ground, lets make a stand
Did you ever think that we would get this high?
Pull back the sheets to find the ending that you prayed for.

Now head towards the light, the dark has no place here
Now head towards the light

    The former two got part of it right. But to me it's about when the one you love leaves you, seeing that you are week without them, or that you can't live without them. Thinking that all what they lived with you is irriplacable to you, or that all these wounds, cuts and hurt they gave you will stay with you, and them just leaving you would hurt you more. So happiness overtakes them. But "you" or whoever the person who was really in love is, he's saying these wounds he has could heal. And he can forget about all that pain. And then when he intends to forget about the other person, he sees his scar, and remembers silly old memories of how he got it or why. But then you feel yourself heading away from these things, and that love struck. Then you feel in control, but still you feel as if the whole world's fake. You're leaving but it doesn't feel like it. And you stop trying to show yourself to that other person, now your life is yours. Because when you were with them your whole point or time was spent to show them who you are. And now to find your own way, forget about the past. Just cut everything in the past. As if it never were there. It's like being rebirthed. And instead of heading to the darkness, crying, you head to light, seeking relief, answers, and faith. You now have better things to do. And the past of him has been locked away now. But now you feel like nothing, and its painful, you have to find yourself again. And the thought of that person everyday never bored you, it has always been interesting, but now you have to find something greater to live for, the path you've been in has reached an end. And from where you are you take a turn and step higher into the ladder of achievments and life...The person who left you would've never thought you'd become so powerfull. And remembering, you realize you had always prayed to become someone strong. Someone like you, so you continue living in this way, in the light. And getting even more powerfull..

    Well, that's just what i think. x] I'm not sure of how you guys think of the song o.e. I think everyone has their own way of thinking. And yeah.

    The meaning to me is that heads and tails are the flip of the coin that you may play with a pal of your, and that the properbility is evens and the luck will be on you side if you gess it right.

    He's finally, after the numerous times hes hurt his girlfriend, going to do the right thing. She's ended it with him to open his eyes, and shes happy that he realized, that he knows what he has to do to make things work. So he's dedicating to showing her who he really is, and fully putting himself out there, even though its not something he'd do. He's doing it because he believes, and without that love he would be lifeless.. And after they've both given their complete everything, they prepare to move on to the next step.. Whatever it might be, only they know.
