Where do we go from here?
How do we carry on?
I can't get beyond these questions...

Clambering for the scraps in the shatter of us collapsed
that cuts me with every could-have-been

Pain on pain on play repeating
with the backup,...

    I think the question might be much larger than a break up. I think the song is about loss of any kind and th wretched feelings that one fells until time heals everything.

    heres what ive got

    "Where do we go from here? How do we carry on? I cant get beyond the questions."
    A breakup has just happened and she is confused and lost as to what happened and how to handle it.

    "Clambering for the scraps in the shatter of us collapsed"
    shes trying to put the pieces together of what happened to cause the break up. picking up the pieces of the broken glass so to speak to try to figure how it broke.

    "It cuts me with every could have been"
    It hurts more and more as she figures it out
    the broken scraps shes picked up are cutting her.

    "Pain on pain on play repeating."
    She keeps replaying it over in her head

    "Everybody says time heals everything but what of the wreched hollow? the endless in between? are we just going to wait it out?"
    She feels the wounds will heal eventually but what until then?
