Yellow diamonds in the light
Now we’re standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

Shine a light through an open door
Love a life I will divide
Turn away 'cause I need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

Yellow diamonds in the light
Now we’re standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

    It's about addiction. I'm a crystal meth addict myself and even before watching the video (which blew my mind and hit so close to home that i can bearly stand to watch it) i knew the meaning. Addiction puts one in a state of powerlessness and hopelessness. "we fell in love in a hopeless place" there is no other place more hopeless then being in the grip of an addiction and unless u expierence it personaly yourself or with someone very close to you it's hard to understand. Also when in a hopeless place we as humans can't bear being alone so out of emotional instinct we default to finding the love we don't have for ourselves in another person which does not work. In order for a relationship to be succsessful and healthy both must love themselves more then they love each other. Otherwise codependency develops and we get locked into believing the relationship must be maintained inorder to be happy in our lives.

    Sometimes even though you've found love, you found it in a place where circumstances are hopeless and you have to let it go.

    This song means that even though they are bad influences to each other, they still find a way to make it work because they would do anything because they love each other so much
