You pulled your things off the walls, took all that was yours.
You packed your books into boxes and placed them at the door.
You emptied your half of our closet, and went through the drawers.
Taking it all for granted and left what was left for me on the floor.

And still I'm pouring my heart out to you, trying to move you.
Still I'm pouring my heart out to you, trying to get you to stay.
Still I'm pouring my heart out to you, trying to move you.
Still I'm pouring my heart out to you, trying to get you to stay.

And I said, "What about this? What about that? Don't you remember the good times?
What about this? What about that? Don't you remember our life?"
She said, "What about this? And what about that? Don't you remember the hard times?
What about this? And what about that? Don't you remember our lives?"

And I said, "No, wait. (No, wait)."
And she said, "No, it's too late. (No, it's too late)."
And I said, "Wait, please stay. (Wait,please stay)."
But she said, "No, I'm going away. (I'm going away)."

And I said, "No, you cannot go."
And I said, "Wait, please stay."
She said, "No, I have to go. It's too late, I'm going away. And there's nothing in the world that you could say to make me stay."

    Song MeaningThe artist doesn't want to let go of her and he try's his hardest to keep her with all his strength but she just slips past in the end. It's very hard for the artist to realise this, as with this it is a very good song and a beautiful expression of human suffering.

    General CommentThis is about as straight forward of a song as it gets, this is the type of song where you can literally read the first line and know what it is about, its about love ending involuntary, about loosing someone you love, perhaps because of some misunderstanding...perhaps because of your mistakes, you want to make it right but as the saying goes " A true fool does not know what he has until it is already too late" this is a beautiful song and the lyrics require no explanation.
