My heart pretends
not to know how it ends
yes, hello self-esteem
we shall finally be free

Before you go
before you go
before you go

It pains me to see
let the weight anchor me
let me hang in suspense
let me cry on your fence

Before you go
before you go
before you go

    Lyric Correction"that the wait ain't complete" should be "let the weight anchor me"

    My InterpretationI have heard this song a million times and it still gets me every time I listen to it.
    This song is pretty much like John Mayer's Slow Dancing In a Burning Room; both speaks of a break up that is yet occur.
    I think, in this song, it talks about how this person clearly sees that the end is nearing but is still yearning to mend the relationship or whatever is left of them. It amply speaks of the hopefulness in that person to maybe give it another go.. My god! Simply written and yet so deep is the meaning of it all.
    This is exactly how I feel too.

    Pardon me if my interpretation isn't quite right but that is exactly how I feel about this song! Needless to say, I am in the same exact situation.

    I wish you knew *my love* .. I only wish you knew how much I want to fix our relationship but the only problem is.. you screwed up! :(

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a person that's about to leave, maybe going to another city or country. There are some mistakes in the lyrics posted here, but looking at the original ones, it was what I understood. She wants to enjoy the last days or minutes with that person before he goes away.
