Within Temptation – Shot in the Dark lyrics

I've been left out alone like a damn criminal
I've been
praying for help cause I can't take it all
I'm not
done,
It's not over.

Now I'm
fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I'm desperately holding on to it all
But I'm lost
I'm so damn lost

Oh I
wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

Cause your soul
is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's
all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the
dark

In the blink of an eye
I can see through your eyes
As I'm lying awake I'm still hearing the cries
And it hurts
Hurts me so bad

And I'm wondering why I still fight in this life
Cause
I've lost all my faith in this damn bitter strife
And it's sad
It's so damn sad

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were
here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading
away
I feel you fading away

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim
for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

    Personally, I see it as some type of struggle, where the narrator is framed by an unknown "antagonist" and subsequently placed in the middle of a war, all while missing someone close to him or her. For a full lyrics interpretation, see my line-by-line interpretation up in the lyrics' body.
