Trading Yesterday – Shattered lyrics

Yesterday I died, tomorrow's bleeding
Fall into your sunlight
The future's open wide beyond believing
To know why hope dies
Losing what was found, a world so hollow
Suspended in a compromise
The silence of this sound is soon to follow
Somehow sundown

And finding answers
Is forgetting all of the questions we called home
Passing the graves of the unknown


As reason clouds my eyes, with splendor fading
Illusions of the sunlight
And the reflection of a lie will keep me waiting
Love gone for so long

This day's ending is the proof of time killing all the faith I know
Knowing that faith is all I hold

And I've lost who I am
And I can't understand
Why my heart is so broken
Rejecting your love
Without love gone wrong
Lifeless words
Carry on

But I know
All I know
Is that the ends beginning

Who I am from the start
Take me home to my heart
Let me go
And I will run
I will not be silenced

All this time spent in vain
Wasted years
Wasted gain
All is lost
Hope remains
And this war's not over

There's a light
There's the sun
Taking all the shattered ones
To the place we belong
And his love will conquer

And I've lost who I am
And I can't understand
Why my heart is so broken
Rejecting your love
Without love gone wrong
Lifeless words
Carry on

But I know
All I know
Is that the ends beginning

Who I am from the start
Take me home to my heart
Let me go
And I will run
I will not be silenced

All this time spent in vain
Wasted years
Wasted gain
All is lost
Hope remains
And this war's not over


There's a light
There's the sun
Taking all the shattered ones
To the place we belong
And his love will conquer all
Yes his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died, tomorrows bleeding
Fall into your sunlight

    The guy left everything he loved. Everything he had, and everything he had. He thought it was the right choice but now he can't understand why it hurts so much. He is teared in two part: the part of him that wants to go back but knows it's not possible and the other who still want to go on the path he's chosen, driven by the hope that made him leave in the first place. The hope to find something better at the end. That's why he is shattered. The war that's is going on is in his head, his choices. He doesn't know what he should do. His love keeps him from moving on and going on the life he'd chosen but his will tells him to run and going on without looking back. He secretely hope that someone, something will save him. Love and hope remain.

    Its that even without the ability to love anymore after so many heartbreaks, it doesn't mean that a miracle cannot happen to do. I think that their lost, and their heart is broken, and he doesn't want to accept any love but doesn't know that, and he knows everything is only just beginning to literally end on him, and to me he thinks god may be able to save him from it. But I don't believe in god all that much really so i'll just say its about learning to repair yourself from me!

    This man is talking about the hardships and struggles he has had to face, and the battle of life. He is crying out to God, and saying that God's love is the only thing that remains in the shatter world that we live in. That is the only hope left. God's love will conquer all.

    I'm not sure if he intended this but it does sound like (the second half) that he's nearly dead/dying and he's refering to heaven and god. "why my heart is so broken rejecting your love" god's love, the ends begging explaining he's dying, take me home to my heart (heaven) all this time spent in vain wasted years wasted gain, (it makes sence if he kind of turned away from god but now he's dying and thinking of his life and if heaven is real) there's a light there's the sun taking all the shattered ones to the place we belong and his love will conquer (that definatly sounds like heaven). I'm just saying this because I would relate, like rejecting god but then thinking of heaven etc.

    I think this song is about a person's heart being broken. He has been hurt and doesn't want to accept love, whether it is that of a religious entity or a person, for fear of going through the same pain again. He feels broken, but then he starts to pick up this determination around the line "Hope remains." He then gradually lets this idea of hope and strength overcome his heart break and speaks of a light that could be symbolic of a person or perhaps God, depending on one's interpretation, that breaks through this wall he has been trying to build to protect himself. So the end where it repeats is him loving again. Falling into somebody else's sunlight, finding happiness again.
