Just open up like a page in a book.
These words that I'm writing won't be misunderstood
If I'm dishonest bring me back to my knees.
Show me why I'm even able to speak.
I'll testify please help me to see.
Don't close your eyes, keep your eyes on me.
Open up, open up now (so make me strong)

There's blood on my hands,
And the killer's not my enemy
It's all for the sake of love
(It's all for you)

[Chorus:]
When all we know is falling I'll save something for you,
You who are all alone (all alone).
When everything is beautiful, when everything's okay,
Even if it's not okay I'll say It's all for you,
For you, for you, for you,
For you, for you and only you (only you).

These hands hold up nothing but scars underneath (scars underneath)
From swimming these oceans and learning to breathe (learning to breathe)
So often I tell them so often they listen to me
So make me strong

There's blood on my hands
But the killers not my enemy
It's all for the sake of love
(It's all for you)

[Chorus]
When all we know is falling I'll save something for you,
You who are all alone (all alone).
When everything is beautiful, when everything's okay,
Even if it's not okay I'll say It's all for you,
For you, for you, for you,
For you, for you and only you.

I can feel it in my fingertips, oh, (I can feel!)
I can taste it in the air,
I know some how there is something new,
I see it so clearly.

I can feel your hands on my fingertips,
I'm seeing oh so clear,
I know it's for you!
I see so clear!

(It's all for you)

[Chorus]
When all we know is falling I'll save something for you,
You who are all alone (all alone).
When everything is beautiful, when everything's okay,
Even if it's not okay I'll say It's all for you,
For you, for you, for you.

    It's about jesus christ's sacrifice for us. And how he died on the cross for us. And that's why he references "blood on the hands", "scars underneath" and that's why he says "it's all for the sake of love" because jesus died because of the love for us so that we wouldn't have to spend eternity in hell seperated from god. And the during the chorus it talks about how god is always there even when we feel all alone.

    I think this song is clearly about someone (could be a guy or girl) trying to please the person they love, they dont care what they have to go through because they really love that person. And when the song says "swimming these oceans and learning to breathe" its basically saying your on a rough road and your trying to get past all the bad stuff. They'll do it all for you.

    I believe it's up to interpretation. Does sound like a good interpretation though. I think its a love song that can be about anything, girls, boys, god, etc. Anything that you love, possibly even your puppy dog ;)
