Let me breath you in, and breath the words in your mouth
Inside your shivering, the silence shouts so loud
I just want to, I just want to stay around
And while my heart beats, I promise I won't let you down.

If I'm somewhere else it doesn't mean that I don't see
That you don't trust yourself, that's why you don't trust me
It makes me crazy, when you're crazy, you don't speak
You think you know me, but what you know is just skin deep

If you keep building these walls, brick by brick towers so tall
Soon I won't see you at all, until the concrete angel falls
I knew who you were from the start, but now I don't know who you are
Soon there will be nothing at all, until the concrete angel falls

    And how sure that if it's a lover issue that It's a guy? Open those minds people. It may actually runs deeper than just a love song I am sure. Perhaps she's talking to herself. Telling herself in the mirror to drop her hangups or she'll die unhappy. Maybe she's talking to her mother or father or.

    I think it's about a girl who is trying to re-connect with the man she loves. Something happened in their relationship that caused him to not trust her, and as a result he is closing himself off. He is hurting, but won't reveal his emotions to her. She is frustrated by his inactions, and wants to rekindle what they once had. She is waiting by his side "until the concrete angel falls" (a metaphor for the emotional barrier he has put up against her to protect himself). I don't think that the guy necessarily stopped loving her, but just that he has given up on their relationship and is just numb from all of the hurt she has caused him.

    The guy in this scenario is untrustworthy likely from past experiences, and he's building metaphorical walls around himself so he doesnt get hurt again. The girl is saying stop because she is losing sight of who he really is and why she loves him. The concrete angel could be a metaphor for the relationship?

    It's about a girl trying to get the guy she likes to trust her. Hence the "if you keep building these walls" but he doesnt trust himself yet so he isnt able to trust anyone else and she has a problem with it because she says if you dont open up, its not gonna work out between them.

    I think it's a girl with a guy that doesn't love her anymore, he doesn't speak to her and keeps his emotions inside. They also have trust issues because he doesn't love her, he might think shes cheating on him but this is because he doesn't trust his self enough not too.
