I fold another day
Lose another chance to break away
From all I cannot bare
I suffer through the shame
Wishing hope would just abandon me
Till this is over

My loveless light
I'm lost in you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

Time and time again
I take it all and take the fall for you
Fear is all I hold
Bound and beaten down
All the pain I can't escape today
Is always with me

My loveless light
I'm lost in you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down
My darkest night
Your arms that hold me tight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

All my love is lost
All my hope is gone
All my love is lost
All my hope is gone

My loveless light
I'm lost in you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down
My darkest night
Your arms that hold me tight
Waiting for you to turn around
Only to tear the whole world down

I'll tear the world down

    I agree with rerae. This song is about a girl who's in love with somebody who doesn't love her back.
    "my loveless light, i'm lost in you tonight, waiting for you to turn around, just to tear the whole world down. "
    The song also suggests that she may not want to be in love with, but is anyway:
    "lose another chance to break away, from all i cannot bare, i suffer through the shame, wishing hope would just abandon me," and "i take it all and take the fall for you, bound and beaten down, alll the pain i can't escape,"
    Also, at the end, she kind of turns on him, saying "i'll tear the whole world down," giving him a taste of his own medicine

    I believe this song is about a girl who is in love with someone who does not love her back. While she gives him her all, and does everything he asks, he gives her nothing in return.
    The chorus suggests that he has no love for her in return, but is still her light whom she loses herself in, and still cares deeply for. And though she loves him, she knows he is soon going to leave her once more just to rip her heart out again.
    This is just how I percieve this song as it relates to my life. I do not have the full meaning for every word, nor is this the correct meaning, if there is one.
