Can You Feel My Heart? Lyrics

Can you hear the silence? Can you see the dark? Can you fix the broken? Can you feel... can you feel my heart?

Can you help the hopeless? Well, I'm begging on my knees, Can you save my bastard soul? Will you wait for me?

I'm sorry brothers,...

    He wants to know if he can be saved. I think this may be about his drug addiction, he felt hopeless and is begging for help to put things right. he Apologises to his family and lover for the pain he may have caused them.'I'm scared to get close and I hate being alone
    I long for that feeling to not feel at all
    The higher I get, the lower I'll sink
    I can't drown my demons, they know how to swim'
    Indicates that he is scared to commit to someone again with the fear of getting hurt but hates being alone. He wants all of it to end and not feel any emotion such as pain.and the Last part is about the drug affects... the more he has the higher he gets but the worse he is on the comedown. he cant get rid of his worries and fears with drink or anyhing either and cant drown them in sorrow they always know how to come back and haunt him again.

    this might be about olivers drug addiction and maybe its about having the feeling that a demon is possesing him and no one can save him. i might be very wrong here but sorry if i am.

    Yall, this song just like many others from bmth is about substane addiction. He wants some to help him thats why hes asking if they can feel his heart thats aching fot help. We can notice this in "Can you help the hopeless?
    Well, I'm begging on my knees" because at this point he is hopeless. Also in "I'm sorry, brothers, so sorry, lover, Forgive me, father, I love you, mother" he is saying sorry to his family because this is all linked to his substance abuse. Oli actually came forward in a concert and explain that he wrote the lyrics "im scared to get close, i hate being alone, i long for that feelig to not feel at all, the higher i get, the lower ill sink, i cant drown my demons they know how to swim" in rehab. Actually "the higher i get, the lower ill sink" is only partially a metaphor since he did get high. The demons represent his addiction and that part of him that constantly need drugs, meanwhile the feeling to not feel at all is all the guilt and all the part of him that knows that what hes doing is wrong, and has all the "trauma".

    The Figurative in the song Can You feel My Heart the song says "I can't drown my demons they know how to swim" is a personification

    Or maybe you're all wrong, or correct infact. I beleive the point of the song is that everybody can relate in some form or another, plus it's just a banging tune really isnt it so what does the meaning matter? Its personal to each and all.

    Either neglect or depression (or both).

    He keeps saying all these things that are impossible like seeing darkness and then he asks, "Can you feel my heart?" Implying that you cannot feel his heart because it is not there. He has broken to the point where he is numb. He says he can't drown his demons because they know how to swim not because they always come back but because water symbolizes life and if they know how to flourish in water they can control his life. He doesn't want to get close to someone all though he hates being alone because he always ends up fucking things up. As soon as he asks, "Can you help the hopeless?" He says he's begging on his knees meaning from all this shit he believes he can't be salvaged.

    If you watch many interviews you would know that the actual title "can you feel my heart" has no meaning. He was just blurring shit out to the melody and it stuck.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think that he thinks he's broken and that he has nothing inside him. That's why he's asking what I perceive as a lover if they think he has a heart like does he have anything left inside him. The "can you see the dark" could mean that he's asking this person see the light at the end of his darkness and if there's going to be any future for him. There's nothing to numb his feelings, no drug since he'll feel worse afterwards and all the alchohol won't drown everything since he still will remember everything that's bad.

    No. He doesn't want to get close to them because he's scared he will hurt them.

    This is my favorite song, and it pretty much describes me. I have major depression, although I do not drink, or think this song is about addiction (as the meaning was suggested earlier within these comments), I feel it is about depression. "The higher I get, the lower I sink" simply means that the more medication the doctors give him, the more side effects he gets, and those side effects worsen his depression. "I can't drown my demons they know how to swim" means that every time he tries to put depression behind, or if he gets happy, that the depression always comes back to haunt him. In this song, "Demons" stands for depression.

    Because of the various antonimus in the music, I think it's like this: we can't hear the silence. We can't see the dark. We can't fix the broken. So we can't feel his heart.
    And there is a part that seems like a letter, saying sorry. All in the music resembles me that he's not really alive.

    I feel that this song is about Depression and just that, not drugs. He feels alone and wants someone to help him, to heal him, to just notice that he's falling apart. His demons plague constantly and, while he does have periods of happiness they always pull him back under. Because of this he feels that the happier his good times are, the worse the bad times are. What is even worse his, he can't get rid of his demons. He's tried but they always come back. He's sorry that this has happened and he feels the need to apologize to everyone in his life for it. It's sad and very easy to connect to.
