You tell me that your leaving
To get on with your life
You're tired of excuses
Disconnecting telephone lines
You say there's other reasons
But you don't want to waste you time
You said if I'd ever listened
It would be the very first time

You say you've been grieving
For quite some time now
Wrestling insecurity, for that
You say the blame is mine
Why now? You have now answer
You just feel the time has come
You're not listening to anything
You're not stopping for anyone

Don't hold back
Lay it on the line
Give me every tiny reason
You've spurned this love of mine
Cause I can't understand
Why this is the end
Don't go before you make it plain
What you think I lack
Don't hold back

Tell me how you think you can do this
After all that we've been through
Knowing you're the only reason
For all the things I do
Would life have any meaning
If it wasn't spent with you
Before you go can you tell me
Have you really thought this through

Choruses

Not on account of me

You can't just leave it here
You only gotta make it clear

If only I knew
There might be something I could do

    General CommentI know this feeling so well. Often when someone breaks up with you, the question why runs around your head screaming a million times. Sadly, many of us don't ever get that question answered. Many don't even ask, but I hope the girl in this song was answered honestly.
