I'm sorry for everything
Oh, everything I've done

Am I out of touch?
Am I out of my place?
When I keep saying that I'm looking for an empty space
Oh, I'm wishing you're here
But I'm wishing you're gone
I can't have you and I'm only gonna...

    I think this is about a person who has done something he really regrets, that pushed away his wife/girlfriend. Now he is saying sorry and wishes that she could forgive him.

    I think it's about someone who is sorry for pushing the one they love away. "Shot a hole through everything I loved" means that they pushed many away to protect themselves from getting hurt. They pushed away their family and friends, and built a wall around their heart that not even they could penetrate. They can't break the wall down now, no matter how hard they try, and they're apologizing for everyone they've hurt by building it up in the first place.

    I think it is about the way we start out loving people and then we see their faults and it becomes impossible to unsee them. We finally reach one of those moments (we all have them sooner or later) where we feel we must open our mouths - then the people around us who are usually used to seeing only what they wanted to see (a passive person) can't get over your "truth" about them and the relationship is never the same. That is my personal take on it because I grew up around narcisstic people who wanted nothing more for me than to be their doormat. Since people tend to be attracted to the same type of people they are related to this same phenomena plays itself out over and over. I think the writer also has discovered that while he is truly sorry for everything he has done, he knows that it won't fix what is now wrong. It has been my personal experience that it is nearly impossible to change what you are attracted to.

    I think its just an apology to the people in his life that he's ever put into a false sense of security and needs to let everyone else know that he will continue to mess up.

    It could also be about how he can never keep anything he loves because he knows that he'll find a way to destroy.
