I tried to tell you, but you just wouldn't hear me
Now it's hard to find the words to explain
You're pushing forward while I'm pushing away
I think it's time we set some rules to this game

And she carries on
She carries on
She carries on, in her own way

Looking for differences while you seek affection
Now I think it's time that we should be friends
Make me your enemy if that makes it easier
For you to finally see it's the end

Then she carries on
She carries on
She carries on, in her own way

Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Would you take me with you, I'm all alone
Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Please just take me with you, I'm all alone

Holding me hostage with the motions and tears
Wearing me down until I've lost my resolve
In the morning when I break from these chains
You act surprised, as if our problems were solved

Then she carries on
She carries on
She carries on, in her own way

Pack my bags and set them right by the door
And cross my fingers as I head back inside
I never meant to break your spirit, and sure
There'll be regrets, but first I'll need to survive

And we'll carry on
We'll carry on
We'll carry on, in our own ways

Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Would you take me with you, I'm all alone
Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Please just take me with you, I'm all alone

I'm only asking because I'm
Broken and tattered in two
I'm only asking because I'm
Simply enamored with you

I'm only asking because I'm
Broken and tattered in two
I'm only asking because I'm
Simply enamored with you

Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Would you take me with you, I'm all alone
Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Please just take me with you, I'm all alone

I'm all alone
I'm all alone

    My OpinionObviously a break-up song.
    Just a lot more beautifully written (and sung) than what you usually see. It doesn't feel cliche or fake. As though he's actually going through this pain of losing her.
