"Without You" as written by and Peter Smith....
Anything at all, but you know I can't stop
It's life on the moon, all this talk of giving up
Life is too short, for it not to be true
The best idea I think, is for me to go my way

Anything at all, but don't want me to change
Hard to understand, when a plan is this strange
Life is too big, yeah, has to be true
The best idea I think, is for me to go my way

If all that you want, is how it could be
You may as well go now, there's no wait and see

Anything at all, but don't ask me to
You have to accept, I can't ever play safe
Life is too real, for it not to be true
The best idea I think, is for me to go my way

If all that you want, is how it could be
You may as well go, no, there's no wait and see
We'll always be wrong
If all I won't give, is all that you want
It's a strange way to live and let live
And all that you do, is measure me up, falling shorter than you
It's a strange way to love, and be as I want
Oh I know that you know, I can't fake, change, or stop

So anything at all, you know I won't choose
If all you could win, is all I would lose
When life is too right, yeah, has to be true
The best idea I think, is for me to go my way
(Whispered) Without you

    General CommentI wonder if he's splitting up with the band as he has done solos recently? The past recent years, he wrote a lot of goodbye songs: alt end, without you, the perfect boy.. it's like he's not getting on with the band and wants to say goodbye? He sounds like he has a lot of hatred, bitterness, not sure? I don't think it's about his wife. I read that their relationship is still going strong. It could as well be for a fan or someone he knows. He seems to have such a hatred in his recent songs for someone, or maybe he's just bitter with his band. Scarrrry RS, I'd never want to approach him again if he wrote this for me, I wouldn't want to be in this person's shoes!

    General Comment I broke up with my girlfriend cos I didn't know where I was going. Then realised that I was pushing her away all that time. We're so different from girls! They're quick 2 think we don't like them by the little things we say or do. It seems this song's about a man's frustration like myself.

    General CommentI think he is absolutely right to move on. Whatever challenges or misunderstanding between people, it is best to let go and forget about it all, as it never existed. One has the right to find peace and be free from the confusion.

    General CommentThe first thing I thought when I saw the title of this song on the album cover was "Is this a reference to 'Inbetween Days?'"
