Sleep quiet, lock the doors
And stay the night.
Bomb shells and broken hearts fall far from sight
Lights flashing far above me as I lay
I never thought my life would end this way.

So take me away from here,
The time is here
A life all spent with you is closing in
It's all I can see
When I'm lost, oh

Put out the fire
And pretend to dream.
This city's sleepless but it's far from me.

So take me away from here,
The time is here
A life all spent with you is closing in
Sorry lord I've lived my life away from you
Soon i'll wake up standing there with you
It's all I can see
When I'm lost, oh

    I think what this song is actually trying to convey is extremely powerful yet the true meaning might actually be frightening and sad. Basically, what I take from it, is this person is contemplating suicide because someone broke their heart. They are lost: "it's all I can see when I'm lost". The only thing he can think of to do when he is in this much pain is to completely take himself out of life. Definitely a sad song but really well written.
