Tonight I lack the strength to even move,
When you walked, now watch me die

For I know this is harder for you,
For love has let you down, yeah c'mon

The road ahead is lined with broken dreams,
So walk, walk on by

And I failed to give you everything you need,
For the fears, behind your eyes

When I can't feel you,
I'm not alright, I'm not alright,
When I can't heal you,
I'm not alright, I'm not alright

When I can't feel you,
I'm not alright, I'm not alright,
When I can't heal you,
I'm not alright, I'm not alright

Jesus as you throw me on the rocks,
For love I left your side

For I believed in love and beauty's wiles,
Where heaven shone from your eyes

When I can't feel you,
I'm not alright, I'm not alright,
When I can't heal you,
I'm not alright, I'm not alright

Tell me that it wasn't all for naught,
It's such a waste now, It's such a waste now c'mon
I know your scared but baby don't you hide,
It's such a waste,
We'll stand alone now, you'll make it somehow

    Its a transcending feeling like in the movie death sentence when he killed everyone that was involved with his family's murders, it's like letting go when you can't possibly go on when you've lost everything

    "Tonight i lack the strenght to even move, When you walked, Now watch me die" When you see the person you love walk out, it feels like all the strenght in your body is flushed away and you feel like you are going to die. " For I know this is hard fo you, For love has let you down" You understand what the other person is going through that its devastating for them as well. "The road ahead is lined with broken dreams, So walk, Walk on by, And I failed to give you everything you need, For the fears, Behind your eyes" You are breaking up for the simple reason that you are not the person they know you could be, because you were lacking, you see the fear in their eyes, watching you not be all that you can be, not being able to provide what they need. "Jesus as you throw me on the rocks, For love i left your side, For i believed in love and beauty's wiles, Where heaven shone from you eyes" Sometimes when you are deeply in love, you see the person as if they were something more than human, as if they were sent from heaven, when they leave you, you feel like GOD is casting you aside, taking away your happiness, your little piece of heaven. "Tell me that it wasn't all for naught, Its such a waste now, I know you're scared but baby dont you hide, It's such a waste, we'll stand alone now, you'll make it somehow" In the end you just want to know that the time spent together wasn't just a waste, but you know that its a waste of time to ask, there is an amazing sense of fear when you break up, but you know you have to face it, not hide from it and even though you are alone you know that you will get through it.

    In the chorus
    "When I can't feel you, I'm not alright, When I can't heal you, I'm not alright"

    When you remember that person, you become sad, because you can't feel them any longer, you know that even though it hurt you to break up, you cant heal the pain they suffered and it sucks

    My interpretation of this song is based solely on my life experience, I know that every person will have something different to say, this is what I feel the song is about

    sorta, erika, but not exactly... u gotta live through it to understand what it means to become a disappointment to someone that loved you. that someone claimed to live their lives for you.. to love you unconditionally, uncontrollably... and to let that person down, not by being unfaithful, abusive, or otherwise mean to her, but just... NOT live up to what they built you up to be... this song is, I believe, about that feeling... the feeling of having someone trust their heart to you, and, through no real abvious fault of your own, you destroy that trust... you destroy that love.. trust me, u gotta live it yourself to understand it...

    i think it means that when you break up with some one that you really loved you know its harder for them! And that when they cant touch you it kills them cause they know that they hurt you and would rather die then do it again!!
    I dont know exactly but thats what i think it kinda means!
