Swan dive down eleven stories high
Hold your breath until you see the light
You can sink to the bottom of the sea
Just don't go without me

Go get lost where no one can be found
Drink so long and deep until you drown
Say your goodbyes, but darlin' if you please,
Don't go without me.

C'est la vie, c'est la mort.
(It is life, it is death.)
You and me,
Forevermore.

Let's walk down the road that has no end.
Steal away where only angels tread.
Heaven or hell or somewhere in between
Cross your heart to take me when you leave.
Don't go... Please don't go. Don't go without me.

    The song is about 2 lovers and one of them wants to commit suicide. The second lover is then saying that the first lover can kill themselves but that they will take their own life as well.

    It means this world has no meaning for someone left behind by a kindred spirit. So if it must be that one must leave, then please dont go without me. Death is another form of life. The only ones hurt are the ones left behind.
