It's tearin' up my heart when I'm with you
But when we are apart I feel it too
And no matter what I do I feel the pain
With or without you

Baby I don't understand
Just why we can't be lovers
Things are gettin' out of hand
Tryin' too much but baby we can't win
Let it go
If you want me girl let me know
I am down on my knees
I can't take it anymore

It's tearin' up my heart when I'm with you
But when we are apart I feel it too
And no matter what I do I feel the pain
With or without you

Baby don't misunderstand
What I'm tryin' to tell ya
In the corner of my mind
Baby it feels like we're running out of time
Let it go
If you want me girl let me know
I am down on my knees
I can't take it anymore

It's tearin' up my heart when I'm with you
But when we are apart I feel it too
And no matter what I do I feel the pain
With or without you
(x2)

Tearin' up my heart and soul
We're apart I feel it too
and no matter what I do
I feel the pain
without or without you

    General CommentCatchy song!
    I think it's either about a guy who wants his girlfriend to have sex with him cause he wants her so badly.
    Or it's about a guy who knows a girl he is infatuated with and wants her to agree to date him.

    I think it's more likely he wants sex though, cause it goes "let it go", "it feels like we're running out of time" - he will leave her if she doesn't sleep with him cause his desire is driving him insane.
