If I wasn't here tomorrow
Would anybody care
If my time was up I'd wanna know
You were happy I was there
If I wasn't here tomorrow
Would anyone lose sleep
If I wasn't hard and hollow
Then maybe you would miss me

I know I'm a mess and I...

    This person has been hurt and had a lifetime of regrets and mistakes. They want to change but they keep on making mistakes and hurting people. They've grown hard and hollow towards other people. They want to be somebody that they like themselves but they never seem to be able to change. They want to be able to forget their past and start new. I think the most important line is can you help me forget? I think this is where they are asking God for help. But in the end they're asking would it even matter if they did change or have they done too much damage.

    Means someone is looking for the strength to change but has heard all their life that they can't. They just want someone to believe in them

    from my personal experience with suicide and depression, this song is about someone who feels hopeless, they feel like if they die right now, no on would even notice that they are gone.Base on the lyrics, the person probably have been hearing how difficult or worthless they are their whole entire life, so now they are questioning do they even matter, as if they are a waste of air.The want to change who they are...
    If you really listen to the lyrics, it speaks for itself.

    The way I interpret the song, from my own personal experience, is really straight forward. The person that is singing the song is depressed, probably suicidal,they want to be someone else and they can't stop thinking about all their imperfections. They feel stuck, like they're not going anywhere and are never going to get better, and is looking for reassurance that they really do matter. That there is someone out there that cares about them, and will miss them when they're gone. That there really is a reason that they are here. That it would matter if they weren't here tomorrow. That it would matter if they kept trying and pulled themselves together. Really the narrator is trying to find help but just doesn't know how.

    this means if i died would someone miss me? who would cry at my funeral? we need to make sure we have strong relationships with the people around us, we might change their life.
