Dear I fear that we've gone wrong
You've always hung me from the gallows
Well I don't feel I'll be forgiven
No, I don't feel I'll be forgiven

If you don't see it
you can never walk away
If you don't feel it
It's gonna get harder everyday
But you don't want love
Keeping you awake at night
'till you can sleep

Dear I feel that you've settled
You've always pushed me in the shadow
Well I don't feel you'll be forgiven
No, I don't feel you'll be forgiven

When you wake up alone
do you love me still?
Do you question the choice you made?
Do you wake up at all?

    General Comment:This song has to be one of the best by them by far. Has a very commercial sound and is composed perfectly. In my eyes, this is about a couple that just broke up and he is finally coming to the realization that it was never going to work out. He may have loved this girl with everything he had, but in a matter of seconds, he realized it wasn't worth it.

    " If you don't feel it
    It's gonna get harder everyday"

    Meaning that if you don't realize it's never going to work, it will just be harder in the end...

    AMAZING SONG

    General Comment:this song is a great song, i could never get sick of it. to me, this song is saying that the girl has done something she should regret (like neglecting their relationship) and in a sense, he hopes she regrets it. hes saying that its only gna make it harder that she doesnt come clean, or walk away before it just gets worse and worse.
    the last part is probably the best part of the song

    "When you wake up alone
    do you love me still?
    Do you question the choice you made?
    Do you wake up at all?"

    i totally agree with mickolayVS about the last line.

    General Comment:This is about two people in a relationship but only one of them is in love with the other. The one that is in love starts to realize his partner is not, and tries to convince him/her to leave the person before the person gets hurt.

    "If you don't see it
    You can never walk away"
    is...
    If you don't realize you're not in love, you're not going to end the relationship

    "If you don't feel it
    It's going to get harder everyday"
    is...
    If you don't love me, it's going to be harder to leave me, the more this relationship develops

    "But you don't want love
    Keeping you awake at night
    'Till you can sleep"
    is...
    But you don't want to have to deal with a break up, so you won't do it

    "Dear I feel that you've settled
    You've always pushed me in the shadow"
    is...
    Obvious. He feels like the person has settled and is neglecting him.

    "When you wake up alone
    Do you love me still?"
    is...
    Probably the best line. Meaning...when you wake up without me, do you still love me, or do you only "love" me when I'm around because that's how you think you should feel.

    "Do you wake up at all?"
    is...
    Also a great line. Do you ever stop pretending to yourself that you love me?

    General Comment:Seems pretty clear from the last verse that he is currently not with an ex and wanting them back. He is alone and knows they are not meant to be together. Anyway, the best part of the song is the outro.
