"Sailed Away" as written by and Justin Rimer Jared Weeks....
Does it hurt to hear me say
That I never really meant to stay
I left you right where I want you
Now there's nothin' left
And not a reason
There's nothin' left to believe in
When just one remains
I've sailed away

Such a foolish game
That we have been playin'
Now you got me right where you want me
I left you in the right
But you wouldn't let me take the fall
Now you've got me right where you want me

Now there's nothin' left
And that's the reason
There's not much left to believe in
If it's all just the same
I'll sail away
You pushed so hard
You have to know that
You might just get what you wanted
And when just one remains
I've sailed away

I found out on my own
Everything that I've been missin'
Now I've got you right where I want you
Now that we're apart
I see just who you are
You're always gonna be
The one to keep hatin'
Now I've got you right where I want you

Now there's nothin' left
And that's the reason
There's not much left to believe in
If it's all just the same
I'll sail away
You pushed so hard
You have to know that
You might just get what you wanted
And when just one remains
I've sailed away

I'm not one to hide my face behind the pain
It's not like me to beg you to stay
I'll just sail away

Now there's nothin' left
And that's the reason
There's not much left to believe in
If it's all the same
I'll sail away
You pushed so hard
You have to know that
You might just get what you wanted
And when just one remains
You know I've sailed away

And when just one remains
You know I've sailed away

Does it hurt to hear me say
That I never really meant to stay

    General CommentDoes it hurt to hear me say
    That I never really meant to stay
    I left you right where I want you
    Now there's nothin' left
    And not a reason
    There's nothin' left to believe in
    When just one remains
    I've sailed away

    I think he is saying that he never wanted to be in the relationship as much as she wanted him to. So because of that, he wants out of the situation.

    Such a foolish game
    That we have been playin'
    Now you got me right where you want me
    I left you in the right
    But you wouldn't let me take the fall
    Now you've got me right where you want me

    I think he is saying that she has him caught up. Most likely in a trap, i am thinking she is saying she is pregnant. that is why he says "you got me right where you want me".

    Now there's nothin' left
    And that's the reason
    There's not much left to believe in
    If it's all just the same
    I'll sail away
    You pushed so hard
    You have to know that
    You might just get what you wanted
    And when just one remains
    I've sailed away

    The chorus is saying that even with all she tried he is still leaving. she pushed too hard, and that just made him want to leave more.

    I found out on my own
    Everything that I've been missin'
    Now I've got you right where I want you
    Now that we're apart
    I see just who you are
    You're always gonna be
    The one to keep hatin'
    Now I've got you right where I want you

    After having sometime alone he met someone else and found out what he has been missing. so now he feels in control of the relationship. instead of missing her is is hating her.


    I'm not one to hide my face behind the pain
    It's not like me to beg you to stay
    I'll just sail away

    so he has given up on the situation and he isnt hiding behind the pain. This is what i think this song is about. Let me know if you have a better idea. Thanks

    General Commentthis is a perfect song about life after a relationship.
    "Now that we're apart
    I see just who you are
    You're always gonna be
    The one to keep hatin"
    people who cant let it go and hold hatred for so long


    this is going to be a popular song when it hits the radio

    My OpinionNow there's nothin' left
    And that's the reason
    There's not much left to believe in


    i never knew there was more pain AFTER a broken heart.

    holding onto hope obviously got me know where.

    and now that is the reason..i don't believe in anything anymore.

    My Interpretationthis reminds me of a relationship i was in. her and i fought a lot and didnt get along, we were complete opposites, she was so manipulative and controling and jealous.

    this songs about looking back at a relationship that was a bit like that, the girl wanted things that the guy culdnt give her and was controling ("You pushed so hard, you have to know that you might just get what you wanted")

    i love this song. discovered it in the midst of that relationship, it gave me the courage to actually stand up for myself and just dump her right then and there.

    brings back memories. when she graduates i might show it to her. just to see the look on her face. XD.

    Song MeaningDoes it hurt to hear me say
    That I never really meant to stay
    I left you right where I want you
    Now there's nothin' left
    And not a reason
    There's nothin' left to believe in
    When just one remains
    I've sailed away

    I believe he's trying to say that I don't want to stay because of all the confusion we both have, our arguments are pointless. You thought that I didn't love you and you accuse me, though that makes me question it too. I stayed a little longer to try to work things out because I actually loved you.


    Such a foolish game
    That we have been playin'
    Now you got me right where you want me
    I left you in the right
    But you wouldn't let me take the fall
    Now you've got me right where you want me

    This whole relationship has been a game but yet we still had something. You would say things that should've made me leave originally but yet you still seemed you didn't want me to. Though I still did and I think that's what you wanted.

    Now there's nothin' left
    And that's the reason
    There's not much left to believe in
    If it's all just the same
    I'll sail away
    You pushed so hard
    You have to know that
    You might just get what you wanted
    And when just one remains
    I've sailed away

    There really is nothing left, this continuous cycle will never end so its healthier to leave than to stay. With me only trying to really prove the love, its not worth trying even more if you won't believe. You really pushed me, but I still tried to stay because I did/do love you.

    I found out on my own
    Everything that I've been missin'
    Now I've got you right where I want you
    Now that we're apart
    I see just who you are
    You're always gonna be
    The one to keep hatin'
    Now I've got you right where I want you

    I focused my life on you, but since I left, I actually found value in my life. You don't seem happy with my success, so I guess its better off without you. Though I think you're just jealous that I can be okay without you.

    Now there's nothin' left
    And that's the reason
    There's not much left to believe in
    If it's all just the same
    I'll sail away
    You pushed so hard
    You have to know that
    You might just get what you wanted
    And when just one remains
    I've sailed away

    I'm not one to hide my face behind the pain
    It's not like me to beg you to stay
    I'll just sail away

    I begged you to stay, but too many times would just be ridiculous. You really should've seen in my heart, and tell yourself that I actually did love you. But no, the blame was all still there.

    Now there's nothin' left
    And that's the reason
    There's not much left to believe in
    If it's all the same
    I'll sail away
    You pushed so hard
    You have to know that
    You might just get what you wanted
    And when just one remains
    You know I've sailed away

    And when just one remains
    You know I've sailed away

    Does it hurt to hear me say
    That I never really meant to stay

    Does it hurt honey? I normally wouldn't stay for this long for others, but you were something special so I did. And now, you lost me.
