I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldnt be that man I adored
You don't seem to know, don't seem to care what your heart is for
But I don't know him anymore
There's nothing where he used to lie
My conversation has run dry
That's what's going on, nothings fine Im torn

Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed into something real
Im wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
Youre a little late, Im already torn

So I guess the fortune tellers right
Should have seen just what was there and not some holy light
To crawl beneath my veins and now
I don't care, I have no luck, I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things that I can't touch, Im torn

Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed into something real
Im wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
Youre a little late, Im already torn. torn.

There's nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
That's what's going on, nothings right, Im torn

Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed into something real
Im wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and Im ashamed bound and broken on the floor
Youre a little late, Im already torn

    She fell in love with a regular mr. Nice guy thinking he was prince charming and soon realized he was just an ordinary man and she wanted more. Her image of perfection is shattered and she feels trapped and wants to leave him. She feels ashamed that she is walking out on this guy for no fault of his and she can't explain any one reason why she wants out. She realizes that she already has no hope and the nice guy was too late to save her from herself. She's throughout torn by having to make a decision whether she should stay with the nice guy or leave him, break his heart and wait for a prince charming that may never come.

    She was with a guy that looked good and was nice for a short time. She didn't care about the warnings people were giving her about him. Eventually he started changing for the worse, and then left.

    She had too much belief in him... The him she knew he could be... Not the him he really was... She had hope in him but he broke her heart... She tried to have faith in him... In them... But it was all wasted...

    You're a little late refers to the advise from friends etc. Naked on the floor depicts just how stripped of faith,hope, love, comfort, strength she is. Her perfect sky, the illusion of love is all gone. She cant act, move get up, she is bound and broken.
