Panic! At The Disco – Always lyrics

When the world gets too heavy
Put it on my back,
I'll be your levy.
You are taking me apart
Like bad glue on a get well card
.

It was always you
Falling for me.
Now there's always time.
Calling for me.
I'm the light
Blinking at the end of the road.
Blink back to let me know.

I'm a fly that's trapped
In a web
But I'm thinking that
My spider's dead
.
Lonely, lonely little life.
I could kid myself
By thinking that I'm fine
.

It was always you
Falling for me.
Now there's always time.
Calling for me.
I'm the light
Blinking at the end of the road.
Blink back to let me know.

That I'm skin and bone.
Just a cane and rusty throne.
All the castle's under siege.
But the sign outside says leave me alone
.

It was always you
Falling for me.
Now there's always time.
Calling for me.
I'm the light
Blinking at the end of the road.
Blink back to let me know.
(It was always you)
Blink back to let me know.
(It was always you)

    I believe Always is about a situation were the singer likes someone who used to like them as well, but no longer does. The interest had liked the singer for a while (It was always you, falling for me) but now after they had finally moved on, the singer has now realized they like them (now there's always time).
    I personally like the metaphor about the fly and spider. It means to me that now the singer (the fly) is trapped by the interest (the spider who made the web) now that they like them, but the "spider is dead" meaning the interest has moved on. I don't know, I just like it (:

    My intake to this song is that the writer is telling a story of unrequited love. Considering that a person will do anything for someone they love even if "their love" doesn't love them back, but yet wish for "their love" to acknowledge how much they truly care for them. Until that day, the person will continue to be breaking from the inside out waiting to hear from "their love" to say I love you back.

    My husband died just about 1/2 yrs ago. We were together over 36 yrs. Back in the beginning of our reelationship, it took him a whole yr to get me to go out with him, but once I did, I knew it was for always. This song reminds me of what we had & how I thought we'd always have time. I'm the fly that's trapped in the web now. Just waiting & hoping he's out there somewhere & will "blink back to let me know" he's still waiting for me to join him.
