Without warning I'm here alone again
High in the basement
Wondering what you meant by goodbye
Cause I stopped listening

You've got a way with words
Just sentiment without
Revealing how you feel
Or if you plan to live without me now

Good night baby if you can hear me
How long has it been
Since you came looking and saw
Me as I really am?

You've got a way with words
Just sentiment without
Revealing how you feel
And if you plan to live without me now

Then I should look up
And see if you're gone
No sense in pretending
Down here all alone
How could I fall when
I'm still underground?
But I can't admit where
We've gone wrong

Well I've already heard the truth
And what you thought I couldn't know
You talk pretty to a girl
But somehow you're already on your own

Good night baby
Good night baby

You got away with words
Just sentiment without
Revealing how you feel
And since you plan to live without me now
I'm on my own

    General CommentThis song to me is about a girl who was deeply in love with a guy, and he just up and left her. "wondering what you meant by goodbye."
    Then later she must see him again and not know how to react, and neither does he apparently. "how long has it been since you came looking and saw me as i really am?"
    As the song goes on it expresses how she feels about being alone, and she wonders what he's doing now. "But somehow you're already on your own."

    This song is beautiful and hold a lot of emotion. From my persepective at least.
