    please help with the meaning of this part

    The following is a part of the song "Endless Song" by Aaron. Would you please help with the meaning of this part? (Especially the parts in bold)
    Many thanks.

    I used to be someone happy
    You used to see that I'm friendly
    Is it why in your tears
    I can smell the taste of fears
    It's all around
    All my laughs, all my wings
    They are graved inside your ring
    You were all mine

    It doesn't make any sense to me.

    It's a song; therefore closer to poetry than to everyday English.

    IMO, you should let go a bit on it, relax and let it suggest things/emotions/feelings to you, rather than trying to turn it inside out for "real meaning".
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: please help with the meaning of this part

    People engrave messages and names inside rings- I think the singer is using this idea. I agree with Charlie- it's often better not to agonise over the exact meaning. Songs can be unclear, imprecise or even incomprehensible- they have things like melodies to consider so things can get chopped up and messed about. To be honest, the only time I read lyrics or look at the meaning is in threads posted here. I just let them flow past in an inexact flow and get the general idea.
