is it hard to live in silence
when I look you in the eyes
well you crave forgiveness
but still don't apologize
is it love that you're afraid of
in the words that you ignore
well we made a promise
but we can't stay here anymore

'cause you gave everything that you could give
and this is the only life that I can live
and I am grateful
but I've grown weary of this fight
so no regrets, it's better left unreconciled

I can see the way you tremble
you don't mean to make a mess
I don't want to get angry
'cause I'll regret the things we said
and there's a soundfrom down inside me
that I've never heard before
and it says surrender, there's no work here anymore

'cause you gave everything that you could give
and this is the only life that I can live
and I am grateful
but I've grown weary of this fight
so no regrets, it's better left unreconciled

    Song MeaningQuite simply, this song is about ending things, seemingly not on the best of terms.
    "So no regrets, it's better left unreconciled." He sings about not wanting to argue because he'll regret what he says later; it's better to just let the argument go, along with their relationship. Cut your losses, so to speak.
    It seems that the girl in this relationship did something wrong, and she wants his forgiveness, but she doesn't make a move toward earning that forgiveness. The song goes on to basically say that "if you're not willing to make a concession, neither am I. If you're not willing to give up a little pride and apologize, why should I sacrifice my dignity and trust by taking you back?"
    All things aside, this is a beautiful song.
