The more words, the less meaning
So we'll just say nothing at all
Your silence and my screaming
Problems we couldn't solve

These miles of memories
Seem to lose their beauty
You're fine, you're amazing
Not thinking of me

There's no room to make things better
"Would you just stop trying,"
The last words that I heard from her
And I will not stop crying

'Cause now that I've loved
And now that I've lost
What I feel inside says that Shakespeare lied
Because it wasn't worth this cost
Of all of these places that I cannot visit
Just a reminder of all of our time
All of this music, it only seems useless
In bringing you back into mind

If time heals, I'm not aging
I've been here so long
I can't help from shaking
Lord, make me strong

There's no room to make things better
"Would you just stop trying,"
The last words that I heard from her
And I will not stop crying

And if Romeo didn't love Juliet so damn much,
Then he'd still be alive
And if you hadn't given up
Then tragedy never struck
And I might have survived

    Song MeaningFirst off, this song is absolutely outstanding in capturing the emotion that grips most people for the days or weeks immediately following a break up. I think the song meaning is fairly self-explanatory, in that aspect. The problem I'm having is actually determining the quote, and lie, from Shakespeare that was the basis for the song.

    'Cause now that I've loved
    And now that I've lost
    What I feel inside says that Shakespeare lied
    Because it wasn't worth this cost

    Is it possible that Horn & Ruimy were confused and were actually talking about Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem In Memoriam:27, where he wrote the line:

    'Tis better to have loved and lost
    Than never to have loved at all

    ???

    General CommentI'm pretty sure they are speaking of "Romeo and Juliet" in this song when it comes to the Shakespeare Lied part.
