"Incomplete" as written by Lindy Robbins, Jess Clayton Cates, Calvin Gaines, Daniel John Muckala, Sabelle Breer, Rob Fusari, Kari Meredyth Kimmel and William E. Lee....
Empty spaces fill me up with hopes
Distant faces with no place left to go
Without you within me I can't find no rest
Where I'm going is anybody's guess

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

Voices tell me I should carry on
But I am swimming in an ocean all alone
Baby, my baby, it's written on your face
You still wonder if we made a big mistake

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

I don't mean to drag it on
But I can't seem to let you go
I don't want to make you face this world alone
I want to let you go

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

Incomplete

    General CommentWow...this song brings a whole new level of respect for BSB to me. The song is touching and introspecive, if not nearly as meaningful as many of the greats. In my humble opinion, this is their best work yet. Good work!

    The meaning is fairly obvious: he's hurtin over a girl that left, he feels incomplete without her. You hardly have to scratch the surface to get that.

    General CommentPretty good song. I'm really interested to see how well it does though, I mean 5, 6 years ago when boy bands were in this would easily make it to number 1 but times have changed.

    General CommentI. Love. This. Song. Fits perfectly with my life. I love the Backstreet Boys. I'm a hardcore fan from way back when. I can't wait for the new stuff to come out. I'm sure it's gonna be much more mature, which is good because I'm much more mature than I was...in 5th grade.

    General CommentLove the meaning!!! That you try to let it go of that person who left, but that part of you is gone, no matter how hard you fight to try and get it back. He's hurt over what happened, he's incomplete with his girl. So he's still trying to get her back...
    And I love the Backstreet Boys and I always Have!
    Good Job Guys!?!?!? Welcome Back!:P

    General CommentI can really relate to this song and back in the day I DID NOT get into boy bands, but this song really does sound grown up. It's a great song. To me this song is more about leaving a relationship, making a sacrifice for the other person, so that they could be happy, setting them free. I think in general this song is just about the pain either person goes through after a relationship ends, no matter who left. JMO.
