The warmth of your embrace
Has lifted me from the ground
The strength you've given me
I can never truly thank you
Through the darkness
I found you by my side
And I'll make this promise to you
I will never let you down
This is for every hour
This is for every second
This is for every moment
That we have shared together
Sky blue days burn through
I refuse to let our flame fade
Every scar burning bright tonight
I'd give my heart for you
I'd give my strength for you
I'd give my everything
I'd give my life for you
Tonight will stand as a testament to hope
Every scar, burning bright
I will stay by your side
Don't close your eyes
Tonight we burn together
My true friends, you mean the world to me
Your friendship means everything
Tonight will stand as a testament to hope
Forever beating on

    My meaning is as follows this lyrical analasis will work through the song piece by piece

    "The warmth of your embrace
    Has lifted me from the ground
    The strength you've given me
    I can never truly thank you"

    He means that someone has obviously helped him in some way given him support and for this he is thankful

    "Through the darkness
    I found you by my side"

    By the sounds of it, it was someone who was a friend of his who has been close to him through some hardships endured by him

    "And I'll make this promise to you
    I will never let you down
    This is for every hour
    This is for every second
    This is for every moment
    That we have shared together"

    Now he's making a promise to "her" i assume for everything she has done for him and more

    "Sky blue days burn through
    I refuse to let our flame fade
    Every scar burning bright tonight"

    It seems that he means more hard times are soon to come, mabey he has to seperate (location) from this girl but hes not breaking up with her
    and again im not sure but mabey its emotional scars rather than physical and they seem to be reappearing

    "I'd give my heart for you
    I'd give my strength for you
    I'd give my everything
    I'd give my life for you"

    once again expressing his devotion to "her"

    "Tonight will stand as a testament to hope
    Forever beating on"

    He's saying that whatever went on "tonight" is something more to give everyone hope and im not sure what "forever beating on" is but mabey he's saying that whatever it is, is quite persistant

    "I will stay by your side"

    Self Explanatory

    "Don't close your eyes
    Tonight we burn together"

    he's telling her to stay with him through even death it seems

    "My true friends, you mean the world to me
    Your friendship means everything"

    This could add to the fact that the person was one of his friends and that mabey more than one was aiding him through his time of "darknes"
