Will I just tell you to give up?
No matter how you’ll play this game
But I can handle the sorrow
Whatever time is running out

You wonder why
Our last goodbye
It’s relieving my tears, it’s so easy
I won’t deny
Life changed my mind

Will I be such a dreamer?
No matter how I’ll play this game
To get is symptom of giving
Whatever time is over now

You wonder why
Our last goodbye
It’s relieving my tears, it’s so easy
I won’t deny
Life changed my mind

You wonder why
Our last goodbye
It’s relieving my tears, it’s so easy
I won’t deny
Life changed my mind

    General CommentHard to believe this song hasn't been commented on. When you listen to it, the way the melody and the lyrics fuse just sounds so bittersweet.

    I think this song has to do with a relationship in which one of the people starts to be involved in something risky or self-destructive, whether it be gambling, drugs, alcohol, or whatever. This song almost seems to be the other person looking back on this relationship and its memories.

    In the first verse, the person is being told by their significant other that what they're doing isn't right, it's risky, etc. But the message doesn't seem to be getting through, and the S.O. is left thinking that maybe things will change before "time runs out", meaning before the relationship has to end.

    The second verse is the S.O. coming to grips with reality. The person is NOT going to change, no matter what they're told or what they promise, and their S.O. is finally realizing that. They've played the "game" of trying to help them, and they're done. There's nothing more for them to give.

    To me, the chorus can be seen two different ways. One is that, no matter how painful the relationship turned out to be, there were positive, happy memories that relieve the pain of what it turned into. The other way is that once the S.O. left the relationship and was on their own for a time, their experiences changed their perspective and they know now that their leaving was the right thing to do. It wasn't easy, but their pain is eased with what they know now.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Star Wars. It describes Darth Vader's feelings towards Luke Skywalker and the others in the rebel alliance.

    General CommentIt's about leaving someone who is playing games and not taking anything seriously.

    It is a relief to leave that person and escape their dishonesty.
