Sevendust – Burn lyrics

(rescue me) from this mistake I'm in
Who knows the path I'll land on
(i must be dreamin) in the end nothing but solitary moments
(comin down on me)

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
(wash it away, release me)

(never free) I don't know what I want but I know
(i don't want this) a sleep of content I'm here
Again and always (intent on believ'n)

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
(wash it away - release me)

(i can't take this anymore )

I lied to myself, remembering the things said
Things you said to me, no answer for help
Empty promises were all I heard, never meant to be
Destroy me, control me, don't hold me, release me from your hands
Give me back the life you took and:

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be

I often wonder how it came to this again
I often wonder why it had to end
I often wonder how it came to this again
I often wonder why it had to end
Forgive you just the same
I often wonder how it came to this again
Never meant to be
I often wonder why it had to end
Forgive you all the same
I often wonder how it came to this again
Never meant to be
I often wonder why it had to end
Because of what you took from me

    This song is essentially about how he trusted and loved someone unconditionally. Then the person basically did something horrible to him-I think the mistake mentioned is not his own. After that, the loss was so devastating that he can't get it out of his mind-it's all he thinks about. Now he is completely different afterward-like he lost part of himself. Now he hopes for the day to come, that whoever it was will realize their terrible mistake, and just what they did to him. Then he is asking for whoever it is to give him some sort closure-so that he can finally figure out to carry on with his life.
