(Seether)
I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph; I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain
(Both amy lee and seether)
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away...
You don't feel me here...
Anymore...
(Amy lee)
The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain
(Both)
'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone

You've gone away...
You don't feel me here...
Anymore...

    you love someone sooo much, your willing to help them by taking on all of their problems and you shar each others pain, you share everything together, and when they are gone you feel soo alone and upset becoz the person you love the most isnt in your life anymore, which leaves you BROKEN.
    i really like this song. i like how Amy Lee is wearing angel wings... i think her voice sounds like an angel. gorjous voice.

    I thinks this is about someone close, a family member or spouse, that has died before his/her time. Now, the pain is so much that you feel as if the world is ending. They need each other and now one of them is gone forever and the other doesn't know how to cope with it.

    well, at the time i know the singer of seether and amy we're together. so i think it's like saying i love you, because without eachother, they're broken.
