    First I superficially thought it was about a gay in denial who finally decided to come out (minding the singer's individuality) but the historical background of the song's name (Mene mene tekel uparsin) about people seeing signs of God's judgement if they don't stop (getting away with it) and the strong crisis described All hopes begin to shatter and the light begins to fade with you I am not afraid! anaphora (constant repetition) "for you i give it all up" (compare Luke 9:23, Luke 14:26) are of faith (in someone) too strong if God's not implied. Plus in case of the leap of faith God is the one who could save actually breaking the fall unlike most humans in real life (sadly).
    So yes. The song is about his relationship with the Lord
    (Sorry, English is my second language)

    He has been in the position of loving someone and always getting hurt so he tries to avoid loving anyone but he cant seem to stay away from this one person he is attracted to. So he wants to know if he risk everything including being hurt again. Will she be there to show him she wont leave and he wont be put through the pain he was in before because he dont want to live without her or go through his troubles alone and hed give all the running away up just to be with her

    Even tho I might not want to love has finally caught me and I have to risk everything or lose my way.I have to surrender my heart knowing I might get hurt. But it will hurt worse not to be with the one I have fallen for

    A true love where he is unsure if the woman is fully committed to the relationship or what...He willing to sacrifice everything all for the sake of love...
