You're making a choice to live like this,
And all of the noise,
I am silence.
We already know how it ends tonight,
You run in the dark through a firefight.
And I would explode just to save your life,
Yeah I would explode.

Let me light up the sky,
Light it up for you.
Let me tell you why,
I would die for you.
Let me light up the sky.

I can't find a wall to pin this to,
Their all coming down since I've found you.
I just wanna be where you are tonight.
I run in the dark looking for some light,
And how will we know if we just don't try,
We won't ever know.

Let me light up the sky,
Light it up for you.
Let me tell you why,
I would die for you.

Let me light up the sky,
Light it up for you.
Let me make this mine,
I'll ignite for you.

Let me light up the sky,
Just for you tonight.
Let me help you fly,
Cause you won't have time.
Cover your eyes,
Get your disguise,
They won't ask you why,
They just watch you die.

And it's still so hard to be who you are,
So you play this part,
The show goes on.
You've come this far with a broken heart,
Yeah you've come this far,
And you've broken.

Let me light up the sky,
Light it up for you.
Let me tell you why,
I would die for you.
Let me light up the sky,
Light it up for you.
Let me make this mine,
I'll ignite for you,
I'll ignite for you.

Let me light up the sky,
Light it up for you.
Let me tell you why,
I would die for you.

And it's still so hard to be who you are,
But you've come this far with a broken heart.
And it's still so hard to be who you are,
But you've come this far with a broken...

Let me light up the sky,
Let me light up the sky.

    The meaning of this song is that the girl has been blinded by the boy's emotions for her.

    "Let me light up the sky, Light it up for you. Let me light up the sky, let me tell you why I'd die for you."

    Hes saying "Wake up, let me tell you why Im in love with you."

    He is in love with a girl who has hurt herself and has been hurt. He wants her to take off her disguise with him because he's going to take care of her and she can be herself. He loves her so much he would explode for her. This song has a lot of meaning for me.

    I Think this song is talking about 2 people One of whom doesn't know if being with the other is worth it, while the other feels like they would do anything for the other and hence " i would die for you" The first person, lets just say its a girl, isn't sure however, the guy argues, "how will we know if we just dont try, we wont ever know" and the bridge describes he wants to show her how much she means to him before she can think up of another excuse/facade/ or have another disguise to present to the guy to give him another reason why it wont work or why she isn't sure.

    These lyrics mean alot to me, I'm in this situation now:/

    Really, I don't have a meaning for this song, but I guess it's about a guy/girls feelings being so strong that they would be willing to give anything for that person, even thier life. When my girlfriend asked me about what our song should be, this is the song I presented to her and she loved it. "i always thought i would have a reason for getting this song" is what I told her.
