I was young but I wasn't naive
I watched helpless as you turned around to leave
And still I have the pain I have to carry
A past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
When part of me died when I let you go

I would fall asleep
Only in hopes of dreaming
That everything would be like it was before
But nights like this it seems are slowly fleeting
They disappear as reality is crashing to the floor

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
When part of me died when I let you go

After all this why
Would you ever wanna leave it
Maybe you could not believe it
That my love for you is blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
When part of me died when I let you go
When I loved you more than you'll ever know
When part of me dies when I let you go

    A long lost love wherein you see each other again and back to each other's arms. Both or one of them didn't expect that it will happen again after all that happened. It's like one or two loved each individual so much that whatever happens, they will still find its way back to each other's arms..

    This song is about the singer's father who left him when he was young...

    I was young but i wasn't naive
    I watched helpless as you turned around to leave
    And still i have the pain i have to carry
    A past so deep that even you couldn't bury if you try

    ** this describes his memory when he was kid and his dad left him
    Like he couldn't stop him... That painful past couldn't be buried... Not even his dad...

    This song is definitely about the singer's father who left him when he was a child. ... It also describes the feeling of the singer towards his father... And his past somehow affects his relationship with a girl

    Its a love story where the protagonist can not fully express his love even if he wants to which parallels to being blind
