Cover Me Up Lyrics

A heart on the run
Keeps a hand on a gun
You can't trust anyone
I was so sure
What I needed was more
Tried to shoot out the sun
The days when we raged, we flew off the page
Such damage was done
But I made it through, 'cause somebody...

    I feel like its about a man in a relationship with a women and things just never felt right. It never felt like home to him. Things fall apart because of problems they were having.He meets someone new and she shows him true love and everything that goes with it. He falls for her and puts all of his old ways behind him, and learns how to trust again. And he realizes shes is home...

    My husband spent almost a decade between Iraq and Afghanistan. He assures me it’s about a vet who is struggling with severe PTSD and who loses his battle with it when he’s finally home. It’s horribly common and all too well known. If you watch the video, I think it’ll be clear that that’s the meaning of the song.

    It definitely seemed like it was about a vet struggling with PTSD. But to me, it felt very much like my relationship with my ex, who was an alcoholic, and struggled with PTSD as well.

    I thought it was a man struggling with depression, having flashbacks to his wife or girlfriend. Then I thought that meant he was struggling with suicidal thoughts then is brought back to earth. Idk haven't read them many times, but first glance thought.
