I'm dying to catch my breath
Oh why don't i ever learn
I've lost all my trust that i'm sure we try to
Turn it around

Can you still see the heart of me
All my agony fades away
When you hold me in your embrace

Don't tear me down
For all i need
Make my heart a better place
Give me something I can believe
Don't tear me down
You've opened the door now
Don't let it close

Here on the edge again
I wish I could let it go
I know that I'm only one step away
From turning around

Can you still see the heart of me
All my agony fades away
When you hold me in your embrace

Don't tear me down
For all i need
Make my heart a better place
Give me something I can believe
Don't tear it down
What's left of me
Make my heart a better place

I've tried many times but nothing was real
Make it fade away
Don't break me down
I want to believe that this is for real
Save me from my fear
Don't tear me down

Don't tear me down
For all i need
Make my heart a better place

Don't tear me down
For all i need
Make my heart a better place
Give me something i can believe
Don't tear it down
What's left of me
Make my heart a better place

    She's in love with someone who continuously walks in and out of her life. It hurts her badly but for some reason, she can't turn around. She can't leave them alone. every cell in her body says that its right and it's real but the other person doesn't commit. This time, she's at her most vulnerable. it's go time for her. the last time. either it works and she is made whole, or it doesn't and she faces devastation. but either way, it's the last time.

    She was hurt from her first love & she's asking her second love to be a better man. She just wants true love that doesn't hurt her as her first wound was so deep that it still makes her scared of the second love to be the same as the first one

    Something that was once cold wants to feel and they finally found something worth feeling for. They want that person to keep them feeling the way they do. Cause no one else can bring out that feeling that is worth keeping. It's only meant for that "one" person. Although they don't wanna give in to the feeling... They don't want to let go of that special "one".

    To me, this is the epitome of the heart of the character of the doctor in doctor who. With a spirit ravaged by the time war and needing to be healed, who is there to bring him peace? He will only lose them in the end too, he will have to move on and leave them behind...

    The song is poigent remainder of a person who has struck with something she can't quite recover from. This could be cancer, and possibly something life threatening. It brutal sincere entreaty about hope derived from an external source, because its from someone that we love or regard as life altering. I affects me much, because she can convey sadness, loss in such a tangible fashiion. In most case this kind of interal idealization would be unhealthy, but if you AIDS or terminal cancer. Every bit of help from your support system is a plus.
