Lyrics taken from

    This song is written from God's perspective, telling us that there will be strife and disaster, but God can be our Savior when everything crashes down around us. The first verse, where it says, "I am the eyes inside of you / staring back at you" is God moving in an unbeliever. They know they need something more but don't know that it's God.

    The relationship at hand is dying out, the man is forgetting the things he loves about the girl (the things he knows about her, because how can you truley love someone without knowing what they are or where they come from?) hence the opening lyrics "it kills me not to know this, but i've all but just forgotten, what the color of her eyes were or her scars or how she got them. " he's saying I still love you but I'm starting to forget why. She then says "i don't hate you, boy, i just want to save you, while there's still something left to save. " she's saying let's try to make this work while the feelings still there, even if it's feeling with no known cause; he then says "i love you, girl, but i'm not the answer for the questions that you still have. " -- I love you, but I'm not what you're looking for, you need someone else who can truely help you reach fulfillment. The end.
