Carry on, you won't miss me when I'm gone
Won't hear the phone ring
You won't hear me sing
Yeah I'm guilty, guilty of everything
I'll run away
Cause I've gotta find a place where you won't know me
I wanna go so far
Oh I'm guilty, guilty of every charge

Throw away the horoscopes
And don't you ever give up hope
Without me, you will be...
Free, without me
You're free, without me

Settle down
And keep your feet touching the ground
You will be okay
You will see better days
Just watch me
Watch yourself fade away
I love your mind
I love your routine, daily grind
All the words you say
Oh your every day
Just watch me
You'll see I'm gone away

Oh throw away the horoscopes
And don't you ever give up hope
Without me, you will be...
Free, without me
You're free
Free, without me
You're free

Now don't worry 'bout a thing
You can fly without my wings
I know you'll make it on your own, I know
Yeah if you stand up and be strong
I know you'll carry on
And I know that you will see that you're free

Without me, you'll be...
Free, without me
You're free
Free, without me
You're free

Now don't worry 'bout a thing
You can fly without my wings
I know you'll make it on your own, I know
Yeah if you stand up and be strong
I know you'll carry on
And I know that you will see that you're free
Without me

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who is breaking up with his girlfriend because he thinks that she can do better without him around and that she limits what she does and who she meets because of him. He knows that she will do fine without him and she will meet new people who are better for her than he ever was.

    General CommentI'm truly surprised there are so few posts on this song, lol.

    But I agree, I think this song is about how the guy realizes he's holding the girl back, and he loves her enough to let her go. I think she's not reluctant to go, but she pretends to be because she doesn't want to hurt him. He sees through it, though, and begins to urge her more and more to go.

    General CommentI think this about a guy who thinks that he's trouble for a girl. He has a bit of a history (hehe Chemicals Collide) and he thinks he's holding her back from getting as much as possible out of life so he's breaking up with her even though he loves her more than anything because he thinks it will be good for her and that she deserves better. He's saying that she'll get over him and forget him because even if she thinks she needs him, she doesnt.
