Its about a girl who feels numb and disconnected from her life (happy birthday wihout her) so she turns to cutting, which makes her feel better. Of course it becomes an addiction and each time she cuts she gets closer to the "edge" of killing herself. Eventually she gives in. Its a beautiful song. I knew the german version for longer but had no idea what it meant. I love it because its so deep and I can really connect with it.
I believe its about cutting. -and the happy birthday part I believe it could mean 2 things, one they sang happy birthday without her there, like them not caring enough about her, or 2 it could mean like they sang happy birthday 2 her but she wasnt there emotionally kinda like dead on the inside. /I think it means life is hard and things happen and can make you make bad decissions, do things to urself, etc.

I think it is cutting or drugs. This song is pretty much saying a girl is depressed or neglected, and they said her arms are sore- cutting.
But they also say she longs for more so she may be addicted to a drug and her arms might be sore because it could be a drug you inject into your fore arm.
Also I think they say that the girl dies, because of she's not coming back, light blocking her sight, and flying in the night (which might mean going to heaven or being a ghost). So I'm leaning more towards cutting.
