What do you think this song is about?

Asked by RockerChick14 (948 points ) January 12th, 2013 from iPhone

To me it’s about a girl who avoids reality when a loved one dies but she decides to face reality after she avoided it for a long time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Da6bBKLPEGg

To me it seems to be about someone who has lived in a fantasy world and is woken by love to the real world.

It’s a lovely song. Here’s the lyrics. It could be recovery from an unrequited love, a love lost to breakup, or lost to death. It’s hard to say whether the word “death” is meant literally of figuratively. If I were the song writer, I would have deliberately written in the ambiguity I see there so that it could be meaningful to a wide audience, from those whose first teenage crush end up seeing their admiration blow up in their faces to jilted lovers just recovering from the shock of a love gone bad; and finally, to those who have lost to death someone who seemed to be vital to their every breath. I suspect the poet who crafted those lyrics meant them to cover all the above.

To me it is about growing up and about breaking through. How someones death can force you to grow up and you have no control over that. Innocence that is now gone.

To me this song is about an abusive relationship. But I can also see the growing up and breaking through. I really wonder what the writer was thinking about and what state that he/she was in when they wrote this.
