someone on songmeanings said, "I think the lyrics have to do with being hurt by somebody you loved, and the regret that the other person will feel forever for doing that. The sadness is reflected in the first half of the song, and the bitterness in the second."
I am a swan's wing, bloodied at the joint
and pasted to a boy's back, like in that story
You waved to me from a mountain as I slipped away
Dimming into rust-lit winters with a burning apple branch.
Who are you that darkness my shade? You burned my door down.
Don't wait for me, because you're a liar...
It gives me the goose bumps D=
