Here and Now Lyrics
And I have been haunted by these things I still have left to say
I’m weary of fighting this alone
So tired of holding on to strings much better left to fray
And I said
Hear me now here and now I’m...

I agree with the original poster's interpretation, but I would like to elaborate on what the song means to me. I am the surviving child of an accident that killed my older brother. I was a very young child when this happened, so I don't have any memories of my brother, and only a very limited number of truly happy memories about my family. It is painfully evident this tragedy changed my mother's demeanor towards me from one of unconditional love to at best an outright indifference to my very existence, at worst to meniacal brutalizations with verbal, emotional, and physical abuse. Even as an adult, I still long for a healthy relationship with her, even though I know that is never going to happen.

I believe this song is about relationships that didnt quite end but somthing went wrong. Looks back on memories and they bring people down thinking of that person they onced love and realizing that without them they cant function, picture this; You have a bad ending with someone you love and all you can do is think back on memories that make you feel sad or mad or guilty that would wear you down from those feelings. With that being said you are also in denial where you believe you are the only one for that person and you want them to guide you back to them the way things used to be. Your calling out for them andthey cant hear you no matter how loud you yell, they just dont feel the same for you as you would to them. You made a mistake in your relationship that can never be fixed but that connection will always haunt you to the end.
Thats an interpretation of "Here And Now" but it dosent mean its right.
