Embrace – Looking As You Are lyrics

I told the Devil and the deep blue sea to hide
I thought that you were after them
I was right
But it's a picture I'll always keep in mind
Where you say I've never been even liked
For anything truly mine

And you did it - looking as you are
Looking as you are

Love enters, and leaves you through your eyes
You threw away the only thing that I liked
And ought tell ya, that things will be alright
It never really seems that way, late at night

When you did it looking as you are
Looking as you are

Now I know, that the world's not waiting for you, nor for me
Now I know that the world gets heavy, won't change

'Cause you did it looking as you are
Looking as you are

Now you're gone, I stand on my own

    Seen a lot of debate on the net about song meaning, well 4 me, I think it obviously means he can't believe she wud commit suicide "looking as she were", obviously very pretty, happy and well on the surface which is quite oft case with folk with mh issues; yet struggle much under the skin, thus I feel this song basically explores that notion/ perhaps with someone close whom passed away by suicide despite "looking as they were". Well and happy on the surface at the time, if that makes sense!
