    In my own interpretation...


    I think it has to deal with her being the abusive one, She wants to keep him but pushes him away constantly once he gets too close.

    In this line she says, "I'll build a wall give you a ball and chain. It's not like me to be so mean you're all I wanted, just let me hold you like a hostage"

    She loves him but sometimes she becomes overly aggressive with what she does, he loves her and chooses to stay through the anger and fighting, but it only hurts him at the end and makes him the hostage to her love.

    She goes on later to express everything about gold. Gold finger tips, gold leaf across your lips, gold chain, and gold shirt he let her wear home.

    Then she says "Gold's fake and real love hurts." She never had someone who actually loved her, she has a past of bad relationships so she treats this one like her last ones. Closed, Hurt, Depressed, and on Edge. Maybe she feels like she even has to "fight" him when things are going bad this could be the abusive side in her.

    I think this song is about Obsession and loneliness. Obsession being "Just let me hold--You.. like a hostage" Also "I wanna steal your soul and hide you in my treasure chest" meaning she will do anything in her power to keep him hers

    I think it's about taking someone's love for granted. She says "don't lock me up
    Don't you want to feel us." She loves someone but they abuse that love.

    i think the song is about loneliness and obsession with one person. example when she says “just let me crawl inside your veins. i’ll build a wall give you a ball and chains” it means she is attached to someone and loves that person but they don’t feel the same way or that she loves that person so much that it hurts.

    I think this is about loving someone so much that it hurts
