Owl City – Take It All Away lyrics

There was a shot in the dark,
I was caught by surprise
There was a hole in my heart,
There were tears in your eyes
And there was nothing to say,
Cause you made up your mind
And so I guess what you meant
When you left was goodbye.

Pre-chorus:
So if your gonna go,
And leave me in a lonely gray
I won't let it show,
Until you finally float away

Chorus:
You gotta know that you tear me up
When you say you wanna take it all away, take it all away
You tear it up when you say
You wanna take it all away, take it all away!
You were the one, and it was enough
To be the one you were dreaming of!
You were the one and we called it love
And now you take it away, take away!

I felt a pain in my chest with your kiss on my cheek
And as I tried to digest the words I couldn't believe
I'm left with nothing to say with my heart on my sleeve
Making it easy to hurt, and even harder to breathe

Pre-chorus:
So if you gonna go,
And leave me in the lonely gray
I won't let it show,
Until you finally float away

Chorus: (x2)
You gotta know that you tear me up
When you say you wanna take it away, take it away
You tear me up when you say
You wanna take it away, take it all away!
You were the one, and it was enough
To be the one you were dreaming of!
You were the one and we called it love
And now you take it away, take away!
You take it all away, you take it all away

    It perfectly described the way I felt when my (ex-)boyfriend (of nine years) and I broke up. When one just fell out of love and the other one didn't see it coming. The couple had a fairytale going on, they did love each other truthfully. For a time, being with each other was enough. Until the other one wanted to leave. The one being left did not want to stop the other person because he is trying to understand that the other person is looking for something he couldn't give. But he had to let her know how much she hurt him.
    This song crushed me with memories.

    My meaning to this song: the women he loved caught him by surprise with the breakup, he must have loved her more than she loved him. He couldn't do nothing because she made her mind up. Now it hurts so much he wants the pain gone, to be taken away. Maybe she said sorry which goes to "when you say you wanna take it all away, take it all away" so it shows how much it hurt/hurts him. His heart was heartbroken. And I'm guessing "i felt a pain in my chest with your kiss on my cheek" means the goodbye kiss, which for him, the goodbye meant forever. He try's to be strong for her by not showing it, untill she's gone from sight. Yeah, that's about it, they were in love, she moved on, and its hard for him to move on also, if only it was taken all away. Forever a hootowl, amazing song.
