I'm holding on your rope,Got me ten feet off the groundI think this means something like, the first person (the singer) clinging on to thesecond (the person this song is intended to) person/first-second person's relationshipbut it greatly harmed the first person(singer) and brought him fear. (Ten feet off theground, like I will get scared too.)I'm hearing what you say but I just can't make a soundThe 1st person just doesn't understand what the 2nd person is trying to talk about.In short, there is no mutual understanding in the relationship, and the 1st person iscomplainingYou tell me that you need meThen you go and cut me down, but waitThe 2nd person thinks she is the more dominant (stronger) person in thisrelationship, so she played around with the 1st person's feeling, confusing him. Thetwo lines are contrasting statements, so the 1st person is confused.You tell me that you're sorryDidn't think I'd turn around, and say...It's too late to apologize, it's too lateI said it's too late to apologize, it's too lateThe 2nd person then apologizes and the 1st person is fed up. However, the 2ndperson didn't expect that (Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...) . 'It's too late toapologize' means the 1st person is fed up with apologies but no action. It is also thewhole song's meaning.I'd take another chance, take a fallTake a shot for youTaking another chance implies to giving the 2nd person a chance to prove she issincere for her countless apologies. Taking a fall and taking a shot might mean the1st person sacrificing himself for the 2nd person. However, it seems she doesn'tappreciate his helpAnd I need you like a heart needs a beatBut it's nothing newIt means the 2nd person is very important to the 1st person, based on the metaphor'like a heart needs a beat' or else it (the relationship) will perish. 'Nothing new'might mean the sufferings the 2nd person gives to the 1st person is not for the first

time.I loved you with a fire red-Now it's turning blue, and you say...A fire red might mean with strong passion, as fire usually means warmth andpassion and red signifies love and boldness. In short, it is a positive feeling from the1st person to the 2nd person.However, the phrase turning blue is something that contrasts with the first line. So,warmth becomes coldness, passion turns into passionless, love becomes hatred andboldness turns into fear. Their feelings toward each other turns into a negative one."Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was youThere is a repetition of sorry or apologies in the whole song. Angels are believed tobe a holy symbol, something that brings salvation and all the positive things likelove, courage and strength. The phrase 'heaven let me think was you' might implyto the fact the 1st person believed the 2nd person is his soulmate or symbolism of his life.But I'm afraid...It's too late to apologize, it's too lateI said it's too late to apologize, it's too lateIt's too late to apologize, it's too lateI said it's too late to apologize, it's too lateIt's too late to apologize, yeahI said it's too late to apologize, yeah-I'm holding on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground...There is a lot of repetition in this last stanza. The main idea is the 1st person is fedup of the 2nd person's excuses. The repetition shows how strong the hatred is. Thelast line is identical to the first line, signifying a repetition.In short, this is a dark, breakup song that means the 1st person (the singer) is tiredof tolerating the 2nd person's (the person this song is intended to) apology.

I believe this song goes more deeper then just a break up woth his lying girlfriend. If you look at the lyrics closely, it seems as if the guy has committed suicide hence linessuch as" I'm holding on your rope , got me ten feet off the ground"," I'm hearing what you say but I just can't make a sound" ," I need you like a heart needs a beat but its nothing new"the girl goes to rescue you him , but what she doesn't realize until she gets there isthat it's too late."I loved you with a fire red, now its turning blue"- his flame used to be blazing for her nad her love but now its turning blue becausehis fire has died for her and also his life is no longer.The angel line also demonstrates how she came once again to say sorry, but thistime she can't save herself or him from her lies

I believe that the song isn't just about a lying romantic relationship. To me, thesinger is at the end of his/her rope because everything that happens in his/her life isa lie. And now the singer is "holding on your rope" trying to hold onto therelationships and connections with the people that "loved... with a fire red"(thepeople really important, ones you would give your life for), but his/her hands (10fingers=both hands) are to occupied with holding onto the truth in life. And now it's"too late to apologize" about lying, and the singer won't take it anymore. Althoughthe singer still loves his/her close people, it is a cold passionless relationship (the fireturning blue".)

I think besides those views that it isn't about lying. It is more about the girl sittingthere and belittleing and verbally or mentally abusing him and like always sayingsorry afterwards. She didn't expect him to turn around and say that it is too late toappologize because she has treated him this way many times and he has saidnothing back. He has finally had enough of being treated horribly and is finally ableto say goodbye because this was the last straw. the red to blue emphisizes that hislove has slowly died off due to the disrespect she has given.

 just want to say that blue fire is actually hotter than red. More dangerous. If youburn your finger on red fire, you get a burn.But if you do it with blue fire the finger comes off!Red fire is the weakest... which puts the song into a whole other context.Maybe its him that needs to apologize...?

My opinion about the meaning of this song, and this is just MY opinion, is that thesinger loves a girl, a girlfriend. She means everything to him (I’d take anotherchance, take a fall, take a shot for you. I need you like a heart needs a beat, but it’snothin’ new.) But she has been cheating on him or whatever and all the time shecomes back and says that she's sorry (You tell me that you need me, then you goand cut me down, but wait, you tell me that you’re sorry).The singer knows that even though he still loves her, he can't handle her cheatingon him time after time (Didn’t think I’d turn around and say, that it’s too late toapologize, it’s too late... I said it’s too late to apologize. It’s too late.) So he tells herthat it's too late for her to come back and say she's sorry. He's done. But... he stillloves her, even more than before (I loved you with a fire red but it's turning blue).Blue flame is WAY hotter than red flame.The girl gives the singer a reason for living. (I'm holding on your rope...), but hecan't stand it any longer.
