Am I wasting my breathe?
Cause it's still in my mind
That its always the wrong place
At the wrong time
So lets face the facts
We all make mistakes
We've got to live life
Before it passes right by.

So before you pack your things and go
There's one last thing that I want you to know
That you can't find happiness
If you won't let go

Can't agree on one thing
You can't fight fate with fate
We had a good love
But it's seen it's last days
When opporunity knocked
You had to answer the call
Those clouds on that sunny day
Have all blown away.

So before you pack your things and go
There's one last thing that I want you to know
That you can't find happiness
If you won't let go.
(x2)

So open your eyes
You're bound to get hurt sometime.
(x2)

So before you pack your things and go
There's one last thing that I want you to know
That you can't find happiness
If you won't let go.
(x2)

No, you can't find happiness
If you won't let go.

    General CommentI just think it's about letting go of the past and if you don't let go, you'll never find happiness.

    You can't carry baggage around and be happy.
    It always hangs on.
    You've just gotta let some things go.
    Some people go.
    It's always for the best.

    General Commentthis song has so much meaning for me.

    i think it means that if you are hanging onto the past or regretting something you will never be truly happy because you will be too preoccupied with what happened rather than the present.

    you cant dwell on things in the past so you just have to let them go. this goes for not only our actions, but sometimes people even.

    the lines:

    "So lets face the facts
    We all make mistakes
    We've got to live life
    Before it passes right by."

    are such a strong point in the song i think.
    these lines are saying that mistakes happen but we have to let them go and just move on with our lives.
