I watched you walk away
Helpless, with nothing to say
I strained my eyes
Hoping to see you again

This is my curse (the longing)
This is my curse (time)
This is my curse (the yearning)
This is my curse

There is love, burning to find you
Will you wait for me?
Will you be there?

Your silence haunts me
But still I hunger for you

This is my curse (the wanting)
This is my curse (time)
This is my curse (the needing)
This is my curse

There is love, burning to find you
Will you wait for me?

Still I want
And still I ache
But still I wait
To see you again

Dying, inside, these walls (2x)

Can't I see your face in these tears? In these tears
And I see your face...

There is love (There is love)
There is love (There is love)
There is love (There is love)
There is love (There is love)

    I've heard the song, and I've seen the video. And I think that the song's meaning relates to this man who's curse is to try and reunite with the the one he loved at one time. He made a mistake in the past, and now harbors the pain and guilt he feels for destroying the bond between the both of them. So he decides to find her and see her again, for he can't bear anymore time without her nor the guilt he has.

    first of all, before you click that little red thumbs down to the right of this comment and dismiss me..know that i can relate to this song..in a big way..its about a relationship and the guy screws it up somehow and the girl leaves him and never speaks to him again but he still harbors love for her..

    This song is talking about how the man wants to try to get back with his girl even though he screwed up their relationship earlier. He wants to get back together but his curse is making him feel very uneasy, like he's really not sure if he actually wants to get back together in fear on screwing up again.

    I think this song means that two people were separated for something the guy had done. And now he feels as if a "curse" was put on him because he can no longer see or speak to the other person in the relationship. And now he won't stop waiting for that curse to abrubtly end one day.

    this songs meaning is that of the beholder, to me it is there to give a deeper meaning in my perspective, it makes me feel like there is something missing in my life, and its MY curse living without it
