    This probably isn't what the song is actually about, but it has strong implications towards the Spanish legend La Llorona - a mother who impulsively drowned her two children in a river. After she killed them, she just then realized what she did and started searching for their bodies in case they were still alive. To no avail, she couldnt find them, and drowned herself in the same river. The line "I will wait by the river. "I wont be forgiven for what I have done." "I will cry out to Heaven." "I will beg for forgiveness." "If we cant be together, what's the point of life?" "I dont honestly wish you were dead." "If I only could hold you again." "And the mind leaves the body, and floats higher and higher" (representing her children leaving their worldly bodies and becoming a spirit in Heaven.) And then lastly "If we cant be together, I will leave this world behind." Its crazy how much the legend La Llorona fits.
