Seether:
I wanted you to know that
I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away...
I keep your photograph and
I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away, you don't feel me here, anymore

Amy Lee:
The worst is over now
And we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn
And no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away...

Cause I'm Broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone...
You gone away, you don't feel me here anymore

    It basically means that they're apart and it hurts inside when either of them are gone. I know how it feels. :(

    It means that separation started off a deep pain, yet he's still offering help and devotion when he tells her that he wants to steal her pain ! She's there for him, which means that something really strong separated them although they are deeply in love !

    The lead singer of seether wrote the song after his brother passed away. This song makes me feel his pain and mourn for my own lost loved ones :*(

    Broken to me is a song of how two people that loved each other dearly but then something must of happen that made them separated and they're singing this to tell each other that they rather die or live(you chose) for each other. P. S. I almost cried when i heard this tt-tt
