"Bittersweet" as written by Sharon J. Den Adel, Martinus J. E. Martijn Spierenburg and Robert Westerholt....
If I tell you
Will you listen, will you stay?
Will you be here forever?
Never go away?

Never thought things would change
Hold me tight
Please don't say again
That you have to go

A bitter thought I had it all
But I just let it go
Oh, this silence it's so violent
Since you're gone

All my thoughts are with you forever
Until the day we'll be back together
I will be waiting for you

If I had told you
You would have listened
You had stayed
You would be here forever

Never went away
It would never have been the same
All our time would have been in vain
'Cause you had to go

The sweetest thought I had it all
'Cause I did let you go
All our moments keep me warm
When you're gone

All my thoughts are with you forever
Until the day we'll be back together
I will be waiting for you

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about someone who has lost their lover, or someone very important
    And has never told them that they loved them;
    "If I had told you, you would have listened, you would have stayed."
    And they think that if they would have said so, it would have changed their life.
    "It would never have been the same."
    But I think that it seems that the person had to go anyway
    "All our time would have been in vain, 'cause you had to go."
    And I think that he is planning on coming back to her
    Because she seems to be waiting pretty faithfully.

    Could apply to someone leaving for war I suppose.
    Or for college, or something like that.
    It could have many meanings.
