And I'm suddenly aware of your unhappiness
I must have called a thousand times, you know you could have said
that you had "nothing left to do with me."
I missed my chance to prove myself to you.

Here's the part where it all falls through...

So go ahead and jump the gun, but stop acting like you care.
You've got the fakest smile I've ever seen and oh God you wear it out.
And we never talk about this, you're letting yourself go.

And you thought I didn't know. You're turning awfully red.
Well I thought a lot about the things I should have said.
You've given up on love and I'm sure I'm to blame for everything that led to this

I've wasted so much time. I'm better off without you.
I've got so much left to live for. Now I've finally got my room to run.

    General Commentwow this is an amazing song.

    Its scary how much it pertains to what has happened to me in the past month or two. I was stupid and had a thing with a best friends ex. Well long story short she wanted him back, and he didnt want her back. So she tried to make things right with me. But nah not going to have any of that now.

    Anyways...

    //And I'm suddenly aware of your unhappiness
    I must have called a thousand times, you know you could have said
    that you had "nothing left to do with me."
    I missed my chance to prove myself to you.//

    -He though things were going good, but things just got progressively worse. She would avoid talking about the subject but it would have been easier if she had just been straight with him and told him that there was nothing anymore between the two of them.

    //So go ahead and jump the gun, but stop acting like you care.
    You've got the fakest smile I've ever seen and oh God you wear it out.
    And we never talk about this, you're letting yourself go.//

    -The girl is trying to act like she cares about him and trying to convince him that she still likes him, but he realizes that shes being fake and he can see right through her.

    //And you thought I didn't know. You're turning awfully red.//

    -I had to break these lines up because they are each significant and have their own meaning. This line shows that there was another guy that the girl was with behind his back. But she didnt know that he knew about him.

    //Well I thought a lot about the things I should have said.
    You've given up on love and I'm sure I'm to blame for everything that led to this//

    -In this line, he is saying that he still felt something for her, but she was the one that gave up on the two of them having something. But he is expecting her to put all of the blame on him, shedding any responsibility that she had in making the relationship go south.

    //I've wasted so much time. I'm better off without you.
    I've got so much left to live for. Now I've finally got my room to run.//

    -Here he is almost thanking her for saving himself from making a mistake any longer, saying that he is better off without her and that there is so much he can do now that she is out of his life.
