Hold me up
Because I think I've fallen to you
While you've fallen out of love with me
Like you said you'd never do
And was I crazy
To believe that it was true

And oh, God knows
We've had a time
Seeing what grows
On a shriveled vine

Look me up
When you've had your space
When you're ready
To see my face
In a room where we both could be
Where somebody else
May be loving me
Would you ball up your hands?
Would you clench your teeth?
Would you walk away
In disbelief?
Are you ready to leave?

Are you ready to leave?
Are you ready to leave?
Are you ready to walk away?
Say goodbye
Hear me cry out your name

You can go
Well, of course you can
But I swear
That these words will stand
Up to you
And your grandest plans
You can't come back
You can't come back

    General CommentI think it might be "you can come back." Makes a big difference in the meaning of the song.... "you can go, but these words will stand up to you and your grandest plans." Saying go for it, leave, but know that you can come back....

    General CommentI think the first verse is "hold me up 'cause I think i'll fall into you"
    And I think the ending line is correct. She's saying "you can't come back". I'm guessing she's referring to her ex-bandmate Sam Quinn and telling him that once he lets her go, there's no coming back from that. She's married now and has a kid, so that's proof enough that she meant what she said.
