    I think the meaning of this song is really easy.
    Is about finding 'the one'.
    That person that you can have fun. That person that you can love and trust.
    At the start of the song the singer is telling us about a bad week that he had. But to make him feel better he think of this person.
    He says that this person is always with him.
    He says that this person is like him but at the same time they are really diferent.
    But they still love each other.
    We all can tell that is all about finding real love.
    He also repeats 'if we only die once i wanna die with you'
    And at the end of the song he changes that with: 'if we only live once i wanna live with you'.

    I think the meaning of this song is a lot deeper than what most people think it really is.
    In the first stanza it says that he woke up from a dream about how we only get one life, and he stayed awake and stared at her, so he wouldn't loose his mind. And what I interpreted from this was he wasn't in a good place and he realized that when he woke up from his dream so he satyed up and stared at her, to keep himself relaxed.
    In the next stanza it says he had the week that came from hell, and he knew she could tell. But she's like the net under the ledge, when he goes flying off the edge she goes flying off as well. What I interpreted from this was that he had a terrible week,and that he knew she could tell there was something wrong. It seems as though he either tried to or was thinking about committing suicide and throughout the song she's trying to save him from it.
    In most of the songs stanzas he says how if we only die once he wants to die with her, and that she's that one person he needs. Out of all the people in the world he is falling in love with her. And as he started understanding why he should stay and not commit suicide she started loosing herself. And that night they got drunk to try drown their sorrows. He said to her that there is nothing to be afraid of because if they loose everytnhing they have, they will still have each other.
    In the last stanza he says if we only die once he wants to die with her, if we only live once he wants live with her. And what I interpreted from this was that he does want to die with her, but he wants to live his life with her first.

    I think the song is about:
    Him wanting to stay with her for ever.
    She dies with him so she doesn't have to live with a Brocken heart because the one she loved/him died.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
