This is not working out
And I'll show you the door, just go
You ask just too much of me
If it's all the same to you, I'll be alone

Don't say anything
(Don't say anything)
You'll win me back with three simple words
And don't try anything
(Don't try anything)
I need you now more than ever before, my love

Before long, I came crawling back
It was me that was wrong all along
I just did not understand how you didn't even know I was gone

Don't say anything

Words could only ruin the moment
Don't try anything
(Don't try anything)
Nothing now can tear us apart, my love

You gave me my choices, I chose wrong
Bet that doesn't surprise you

Don't make me sad cause I cry like a girl, and baby, that's bad
Don't make me mad cause I lose my composure, and that's all I have

You reach for my decision, I knew it all could be worse off
(Don't make me sad cause I cry like a girl, and baby, that's bad)
I take what I get
You reach for my decision, I guess it all could be worse, I...
(Don't make me mad cause I lose my composure, and that's all I have)
Take what I, take what I, take what I get

    General CommentTo me it's about him breaking up with a girl and finding it really difficult and he realises after that he's made the wrong decision and tries to get her back but she's moved on and is over him.

    'I just could not understand that you didn't even care I was gone', to me is about her getting over him.

    I thinkm by the end of the song, the tables have turned and shes in control because he really wants her back because without her he is nothing.

    General CommentI really, really like this song.

    It's pretty obvious what it's about.

    Boy dumps girl half-heartedly. Boy realizes he made a mistake. Boy goes back to girl. Girl doesn't want boy back. Boy is sad. The end to this emo story.
