Q: What does just like a moth draw to a flame, you lured me in and i could not sense the pain mean?
A: it is quite poetic actually, it means that the person he/she fell in love with was deceitful and that they (the speaker) didn't know they'd be hurt in the end.

The speaker is comparing the situation to a moth and how easily it is attracted to something (in this case the light) so maybe the speaker is a hopeless lover. Who knows?
