I Refuse Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't wanna die alone
I don't wanna live forsaken
I refuse to let this go
Because my soul is breaking
I don't wanna let you know
That my heart is just so jaded
I refuse to let it show
I refuse to let it go

[Chorus]
Wake me...

    Maybe it's about a person who has lost everything and gets pushed back down no matter what. They try to get back up. But it seems like they are stuck in a void where there is no escape. They are too scared to pull the trigger and everyday they hope that they wake up and all of it was just a bad dream.

    This song hits home to me. The hell I have seen, the war,the blood, the demons I have faced and continue to fight with. This is about someone who has no idea of how to free himself of the demons yet refuses to give into them. I have forgotten how to care and life becomes a dream as I go through the motions. I dont want to die alone, which is why that bullet stays on the shelf alone.

    To me this song is about a person who had been through a lot in life, and refuses to tell anyone. They refuse to show their emotions. I think the wake me up means that the individual doesn't want to be this way, and he feels as if he is living life as a dream.

    “I refuse to let this go because my soul is breaking,” meaning he knows his inner choices are hurting him, but doesn’t feel like his soul breaking is a valid reason to complain and ask for help to get over it.

    Personally I think he is a person who is scared to let himself show because he might be rejected by his friends or anyone around him. So by not saying anything and by keeping it to himself, he is hurting inside but he also doesn't want to lose the people around him by opening his mouth. I think this song is about hurting inside and he isn't saying anything becuase he knows it isn't worth losing it all.

    I think it some who is introverted and wants a relationship and needs help getting there but they refuse any help from anyone.

    For me personally, when I heard the lyrics, I thought of a young man not knowing what he wants, but refusing to do one thing instead of the other and just wanting things to get better on their own rather than making them.

    “I don’t wanna die alone,” meaning he wants the friends and relationships he has.

    “I don’t wanna live forsaken,” meaning he doesn’t want to risk living as that friend or partner everyone forgets or leaves behind, because he knows if he told them the truth, they’d hate him for his truth.

    “I refuse to let this go because my soul is breaking,” meaning he knows his inner choices are hurting him, but doesn’t feel like his soul breaking is a valid reason to complain and ask for help to get over it.

    “I don’t wanna let you know that my heart is so jaded,” meaning he doesn’t want to be that annoying self-pitying person who annoys everyone.

    He “refuses to let this show,” but he also “refuses to let it go,” so it will stop bothering him.

    He’s “tired of living right here in between.”

    It's about a person who doesn't want anyone to know how they are feeling, they refuse everything. They want to live after they are gone on this earth.

    Had an interpretation but being reviewed.

    Refuse to follow any cultures or religions but at the same time trying hard to find happiness and success but bad karma keeps coming their way. Not having friends or a partner,
    killing one self.
