    Personally, I think it's about a story of a couple who loved each other and one lover cheated on the other, and she's narorating it as if it was from her point of view. Hence the line (My one heart hurt another so only one life can't be enough can you give me just another for that one who got away). And in the chorus it means that even if you try your hardest, they chose their lifestyle and they're not changing it. Another reason why I think that is because choirs aren't complete without their songs and their music. And weary people need hope to make them happy again. Without these things the world would be bleh and repetitive. And the bridge or whatever you want to call it, is how the lover feels when there lover left the relationship. (Lonely, I'm so Alone now)
