I'm gonna hold you for the last time
I'm gonna cry but I should not to let it show
This is the hardest way to say goodbye
'Cause as you walk away I'm feeling so alone

I don't understand
Why you had to leave and I'm not part of your plan
We both agreed but now I regret
There are so many things I should have said

But now I've let you go
I'm holding back the tears
I'm here alone, forgetting all the years
And now there's nothing I can do to bring you back to me
Oh, so we live our different lives
It's so hard and there's no more you and I
But we're worlds apart

Sometimes it's hard to get to sleep at night
Sometimes I think about the way it could've been
I see you everytime I close my eyes
I tried to shut you out instead I let you in
I can't pretend I wanted it to end for you and me

But now I've let you go
I'm holding back the tears
I'm here alone, forgetting all the years
And now there's nothing I can do to bring you back to me
Oh, so we live our different lives
It's so hard and there's no more you and I
And I'm missing you tonight
But we're worlds apart

What I'd give for one more day
Just to say the things I need to say
If only time was not erased

As you walked away I knew I couldn't explain to you
And I can't pretend I wanted this to end
For you and me

But now I've let you go
I'm holding back the tears
I'm here alone, forgetting all the years
And now there's nothing I can do to bring you back to me
Oh, so we live our different lives
It's so hard and there's no more you and I
And I'm missing you tonight
But we're worlds apart
We're worlds apart

    General Commenti think its about a girl who is trying to express how she feel about a guy but never get the chance too..and its too late to do so as they are going to live far apart from wach other

    General Commentthis song makes me cry almost every time i hear it. because it reminds me of me and my ex!

    *i think its about leaving someone you truly really care about. and agreeing that moving on is better but then you truly miss them and regret letting them go. and now it seems like you two not even the same, you lost them forever (worlds apart). and at the beginning when it says:I'm gonna hold you for the last time
    I'm gonna cry but I should not to let it show
    This is the hardest way to say goodbye
    'Cause as you walk away I'm feeling so alone
    *** i think that's talking about while the are breaking up and stuff*

    i think it could also mean:
    *that they broke up cuz he was leaving*
