Killswitch Engage – My Curse lyrics

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 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.

    "My Curse" has a very special meaning to me. When I was a child, I used to dream of the same girl almost every night, yet I've never once met her in reality. Even during my worst days when I wanted nothing more than to die, I couldn't bear to do so, because I thought "what if she showed up tomorrow and found me in a morgue?" I've not dreamed of her in more than 13 years, but at their height, those dreams kept me alive. The meaning of this song is dear to my soul in a way I could never express, because I wanted to find her, even if it cost me my life, but as the years passed, I began to realize her purpose was not to be at my side, but to keep me alive. Even after all these years, the question still comes to me. Was she real or merely a creation of my mind? Maybe in the end it does not matter, because I'm still here, and I'll always be grateful for those nights of warm feelings and comforting embraces, which, even if nothing more came of them, at least kept me out of my grave. Though the joys would be all the sweeter, I realize I need no companion to complete my existence. I can afford to wait, if need be, for another twenty years for a woman who can touch my soul the same way it was in those dreams of youth. "My Curse" is therefore a reminder of that time, when in my darkest hour, I was not alone. The memories come, at times bittersweet, but always with the reminder of what I've gained by choosing to live. Maybe that woman is out there, wondering who that guy was she shared dreams with as a child, and maybe I'll meet her one day. Regardless, "My Curse" reminds me of my blessings. Good show, KSE.

    I think it means that he really wants to see her again, and he still has so much love for her, but she doesn't feel the same way towards him because he screws up. This is his curse. I think in the video when hes putting up the books, he is trying really hard to get back with her and he is trying his best, but its still not enough to get back with her. I think towards the end when he drops the book, I believe that's a sign of him giving up and that he will never get back with her again. But there is many interpretations of this song and no matter what people say, its still a beautiful song:)

    I've listened to this song so many times and I've seen the video many times. I have to agree with all the others that its about how a man screws up a relationship with the woman he truly loves. He screwed up so bad, that the woman won't speak to him again, but he still lusts love for her. But I think in the video when he is re-stacking the bookcase, I think what he is doing is he is trying to fix things again and he is trying to get back to the one he loves, but his curse will haunt him forever.

    I've seen the video and stuff, and I've read all the comments about reuniting with the one you love, but I think its more about the guy loving the girl, but the girl doesn't feel the same way. The feeling is like a curse because I've felt that way before, and its not a good feeling. The girl doesn't talk to you anymore once you tell her you love her. "your silence haunts me, but still i hunger you. This is my curse. " I think theres multiple interpretations of this song though, but no matter what anybody says, its a kick a$$ song:)
