Managed to see this song in a compeltly new light.
Ok, so like most people i assumed this is about a girlfriend or losing a friend, a bereavement or soemthing. And a good song it is too.
Well my girlfriend informed me that she was fortunate enough to ask the lead singer and songwriter of this song and what the song is about.
The answer completly revolutionises how you percieve the song.
He told her that he is literally trying to save someone by bringing them to christ.
It compeltly changes the song and for me makes it so much better.
Sorry if you all know this, here are the lyrics as well.
