Before I start, just gotta say. This song is amazing and I definitely relate to it. Ok, I believe the song is about a couple. The guy keeps trying to change "I said so many times I would change my ways" and be the man his girlfriend wants/ deserves, aka "the saint". But can't escape his past or mistakes "the sinner". Though he is still in love with his girlfriend and is grateful to her "I'll always keep you inside, you healed my heart, and my life..." He knows he's hurting her. So he leaves her, telling her all these things, and accepting the choice he made even though it hurts him.

It's about a couple who love each other so much they are hurting each other it's turned into anger and hate break up back together repetitively one is walking away to free both them selves and doesn't want to but knows he has to make sure to stop the suffering it's painful and one has to admit that they are not just the hero cause never wanted to be also is the death one gave stooped to where they never wanted to go or be emotionally or even admit verbally one has realised they are actually the distraction and will never not be and that one hates that but excepts that sadly, that one is sorry and can't be enough he is all of it because one loves him so much that this one would die for it their love as well as the other. Arrogance has lost pride burned admittance futile the weak has become strong and excepts selfishness. Maybe.

Read the first 3-4 lines. He's leaving his girl friend and saying good bye and killing himself before he causes anymore destruction. Shinedown songs are all about addiction. He can't seem to change his ways even tho he wants to desperately. He says she healed his heart as if it wasn't still there to be healed anymore. If it was and was healed why would he leave?

Thing song speaks to me in a way. It about two lovers who spend time apart too often. Him being gone. Her at home. And somehow it hurts them. He knows it hurts her. Even though he tried better and failed. So he decides for her that it's best that he leaves and for her to be happy somehow. "Had to make a choice that was not mine, had to say good bye for the last time." He felt guilty for the hurt of being gone. So he left one last time.
My ex boyfriedn of a 11 months told me to listen to this song. At first I just listened to it not haering the words. Then I relistend to it and I haven't stop listening to it. He was never good with words so finding songs that he could speak thro was what he did and he spoke to me thro this song. It makes a person realize what love does for a person. Good job shinedown.
