Flyleaf – This Close lyrics

Had a dream that we were dead, but we pretended that we still lived.
With no regrets we never bled and we took everything life could give
And came up broken empty handed in the end
In the hearts of the blind, something you'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore
Not once in life have I been real, but I never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window, I've been dressing in your clothes
I've been walking dead, watching you, long enough to know I can't go on.

Had a dream that fire fell from an opening in the sky
Someone warned me of this hell, and I spit in his naive eye
And left him crying for my soul he said would die.
In the hearts of the blind something you'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore.
Not once in life have I been real, but I've never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window, I've been dressing in your clothes,
I've been walking dead, watching you, long enough to know I can't go on.

In the hearts of the blind, something you'll never find, is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore.
Not once in life have I been real, but I've never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window, I've been dressing in your clothes,
I've been walking dead, watching you, long enough to know I can't go on.

I've been looking in your window, I've been dressing in your clothes
I've been walking dead, watching you, long enough to know I can't go on.

    I think it's trying to say something like "You've been living life your own way, and you're not getting the results you could be getting. You are warned by people to change your ways, but you don't believe you should. In fact, you think they're naive and stupid for thinking such a thing. Then, suddenly you meet God and start watching what he does and who He is and you finally figure out 'I can't go on without You' And until you figure that out and are born again, you are "walking dead. " I don't know. You can never be too sure what these people were thinking when they decided to put pen(cil) to paper. But this is what I think it means.
