This song to me seems to mean:
A person who is falling in love with someone and although they try not to the are taken over. After he is taken over he doesn't know what is going on, but feels it better to not know. This person he is in love with is the only one who can seem to see through them while no one else realy knows who he is. Afraid of being left alone, he wonders if they'll still be there after all this.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Kk for anyone who doesn't know much about AILD...they are Christian yes, but they try not to come across preachy and stuff; so most of their songs are about hardships and things that happened in their life, just because they are Christian their songs aren't all about god. and I personally think this song is about love and how they both know they're in love but they can't work it out or something..thats my guess

This song is about one thing, When he gave his heart to Jesus. It isn't about a girl. It is when when he have his heart to the Lord. Like almost all of their songs. This song along with Collision and Undefined are my favorite.

This song is talking about finding Jesus it talks about Christ as coming in to a relationship with Christ he can see all so the singer is asking to be transparent so all his can fans can see what he is like he shows Christ's love through his life. If you still don't under I challenge you to look up some interviews with the lead singer on google he is very deep and knows what he is talking about.!

Hmmmm.....you may be right, but seeing as how AILD is a christian metal band, there may be another meaning. For instance, it could be describing one's discovery of god in the manner of a relationship. "I gave my heart away." It is very common for the leaders of christian churches to tell people to "give your heart to Jesus." "We tried so hard to understand and reason." well "God works in mysterious ways." And just so you don't think I'm so goody-goody bible thumper trying to spread the word, I'm an athiest.

This song is about someone who has fallen for someone else so hard that they seem to be the only one that understands them and can reason with them! And no matter where they may be they will hold the memory of that person forever. The person they have fallen for leaves me " tranparent" or see through but only to them! Ahh love such a wonderful thing and such a hell!
