You were my fire
So I burned till there was nothing left to me
I... I touched your face
I held you close
Till I could barely breathe

Why? Give me hope
Then give me up
Just to be the death of me
Save the rest of me

'cause I see you
But I can't feel you, anymore
So go away
I need you
But I can't need you, anymore
You hesitate

Now, now and then you come around
Like there's something left for me
You were one, oh, you were everything
I'm still here, but I'll just keep the rest of me

'cause I see you
But I can't feel you, anymore
So go away
I need you,
But I can't need you, anymore
You hesitate

Oh, we never made it...
You hesitated...
Oh, I don't believe
That I see you

But I can't feel you, anymore
So go away
I need you,
But I can't need you, anymore
You hesitate
'cause I see you
But I can't feel you, anymore
So go away
I need you,
But I can't need you, anymore
You hesitate
Hesitate

You were my fire...
So I burned, till there's nothing left to me

    I think this song is about a person who really wants to be with someone else, but there no good for eachother, and refeclting on how that person was there everything and how the love ended up hurting both of them, and even though they are both in love, they cant be together. It just wont work.

    The first time i heard this song was at a concert when they played with advendged sevenfold. I loved it the first time i heard it even though it had no meaning to me. Well, oddly enough, my boyfriend & baby's father of my 8 month old, told me he was no longer happy about a week ago. Now, this song fits to a tee; i just hope i didn't gink.s myself. Jay, if you see this, i wanna dedicate this song to you, because it finally does have meaning in my life!!!

    i know corey taylor wrote this song about his ex wife. but to me, its about my family, and mainly about my dad-especially in the lyrics 'i see you but i cant feel you so go away, i need you but i cant need you anymore.' this song is amazing and the video is incredible.
