"I'm Not Saying Goodbye" as written by and Nicholas/richards Santino....
I've painted these walls a million times
I’ve drove so far to say these lights
The only thing I wanted was with you

And I've packed my bags, yeah I'll be fine
I’ve made some calls, I've said goodbye
She'll see me in a couple days
She'll wipe the smile off my face

You're not looking yourself today
I can see it in the way that your hands shake
And you know that you're no good for no one else but me love
And you're trying not to act so cute
With your hands in your pocket and one on your locket
Show me something new

I'm writing down your favourite things
To show you that I've read through your letters again
As pages fall, my heart falls too
You cross your Ts and dot your Is
I'm not saying goodbye

I've been sleeping with the lights on baby
I know it drives you crazy
But Tonight I swear we'll be alone

But damn girl is it so obvious
That I'm out of luck and we're out of time
So tonight you'll be all mine

I'm writing down your favourite things
To show you that I've read through your letters again
As pages fall, my heart falls too
You cross your Ts and dot your Is
I'm not saying goodbye

I've been sleeping with the lights on
I've been sleeping with the lights on
I've been sleeping with the lights on baby
I've been sleeping with the lights on, baby
I know it drives you crazy
But tonight I swear we'll be alone

I'm writing down your favourite things
To show you that I've read through your letters again
As pages fall, my heart falls too
You cross your Ts and dot your Is
I'm not saying goodbye

    General CommentMy whole comment didn't post for some reason? Anyway, I said that I think this song's about how he's trying to show a girl that there's no one else for them; he's making an effort to prove that he knows her best and he's even taken time to reread her letters.

    General CommentAnd you're trying not to act so cute
