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 met a person, who she believed to be the one, her true love. She shared her whole being with this man only to find out the person she fell in love with was just an act put on. The man left her, after using her leaving her broken. She is trying to be brave and put on a straight face, but really she is hurt and torn on whether love is real or not, causing her to view the world in a new light.

    this song is about a girl who fell for a total poser. He pretended to be one kind of guy, but underneath he was a monster. When she realizes that she's been total had by the loser she is bound and naked and ashamed, he used her, and then left, maybe said he'd be back, but he's a little late and she's thinking he won't be back... so she's lost all faith in ever meeting the real deal. this song breaks my heart because just about every girl in the world feels this way at some point in her reomantic life... usualy I think when it's her "first time"...
