In a few words - this song is about dying, or making peace with dying. You don’t have to believe in anything to be moved by this song.
Everybody thinks about death and about looking back on your life in the end. But you don’t constantly remember to express your feelings to your loved ones, embrace happiness, not to focus on the negative and not to let the hard feelings prevent you from the things you need. No hard feelings, because…
"Lord knows they haven't done
Much good for anyone
Kept me afraid and cold
With so much to have and hold"
