    I feel as though the song has a more metaphysical meaning behind it than what we first percieve of it. For instance, while the emotions of the song can clearly touch a wide array of situations it would seem that, when paired with the music video, it is about a lost loved one. This is to say that is speaks towards loosing loved ones to death.
    Most supportive to this idea is the movie itself. Assumingly, a man has lost his loved one to death and is finding it impossible to live joyfully without her. I believe this because while the man is unaware of the womens prescence, she is able to see him. Not only this but the color scheme of the two rooms each is seperated into is reminisence of how you might categorize the living from the dead.
    I just wish I knew what the reference tot he 3rd bar has, if any.
