She had an earthquake on her mind
I almost heard her cry out as I left her far behind
And knew the world was crashing down around her
I sink down to the ocean floor
Because I know that we are more but, I've made this mess
I built this fire, Are you still mine?

Cause baby I'm not all right when you go
I'm not fine,
Please be all mine
I never want you to go
Because I am all yours so please be all mine.

She had an earthquake on her mind
Apparently the kind that would bury us alive
By putting all this weight on us forever
I lie here on the ocean floor
Broken castle by the shore and
I made this mess, I built this fire
Are you still mine?

Cause baby I'm not all right when you go
I'm not fine,
Please be all mine
I never want you to go
Because I am all yours so please be all mine.

Let me save us
I've slaughtered us, I've murdered our love
I can taste it, This blood in my mouth
This knife in my lungs
Have I murdered our love?
Have I murdered our love?

Cause baby I'm not all right when you go
I'm not fine,
Please be all mine
I never want you to go
Because I am all yours so please be all mine

Baby I'm not all right
Baby I'm not all right when you go
Please be all mine
I never want you to go
Because I am all yours so please be all mine.

    This song is describing a relationship gone wrong. The relationship seems to be ruined by the singer, as it is hinted to in the line " I made this mess, I built this fire ". The "Earthquake" in this song is probably the break up. The line " Apparently the kind that would bury us alive " describes how badly the relationship was ruined, in this case it was ruined beyone the point of repair. The singer is asking for forgiveness as he wants the woman back. Now when the singer speaks of the ocean, as in " I sink now to the ocean floor...I lie here on the ocean floor " He is talking about the choice of death or suicide he wishes to take for destroying the relationship.
