"This Ain't A Love Song" as written by and Roy Neville Francis Stride....
Every night I remember that evening
The way you looked when you said you were leaving
The way you cried as you turned to walk away
The cruel words and the false accusations
The mean looks and the same old frustrations
I never thought that we'd throw it all away
But we threw it all away.

And I'm a little bit lost without you
And I'm a bloody big mess inside
And I'm a little bit lost without you
This ain't a love song this is goodbye (ooh)
This ain't a love song this is goodbye (ooh)

I've been lost, I've been out, I've been losing
I've been tired, I'm all hurt and confusion
I've been mad, I'm the kind of man that I'm not
I'm going down, I'll be coming back fighting
I may be scared and a little bit frightened
But I'll be back, I'll be coming back to life
I'll be coming back to life

And I'm a little bit lost without you
And I'm a bloody big mess inside
And I'm a little bit lost without you
This ain't a love song this is goodbye (ooh)
This ain't a love song this is goodbye (ooh)

Who
And you can try (you can try)
And you can try but you'll never keep me down
And you can try (you can try)
And you can try but you'll never keep me down

La la la la la la la la la
(I won't be lost, I won't be down)

And I'm a little bit lost without you
And I'm a bloody big mess inside
And I'm a little bit lost without you
This ain't a love song this is goodbye

It's alright (It's alright) cause you can try but you'll never keep me down
It's alright (It's alright) I may be lost but you'll never keep me down
You can try (you can try) you can try but you'll never keep me down
You can try (you can try) I know I'm lost but I'm waiting to be found
You'll never keep me down
You'll never keep me down
Never keep me down

    General CommentThis is a really great track, he's saying that even though he's a mess without her, he's still better off. And things will work out better in the long run. It's the same concept we tell our mates when they've had their heart broken. Even though they feel bad now, it'll get better.

    General CommentI think hes saying how the girl has left him and how he thinks about it constantly, even though they thought it'd never happened it has. The chorus is saying how even though he feels lost and "a bloody big mess inside" he can't go back to how it was; "this ain't a love song this is goodbye", because she made him feel angry and sad. In the second verse hes saying why he can't go back to how it was, and even though hes scared he wants to get over her.

    General Commentto me this song is about someone who liked someone but this other person sends different signals so this someone gives up on them but without this person at least their bestie causes them to be lost and a bloody big mess.

    General CommentBad breakup.

    He's crushed.

    General CommentI just split with ma girl

    Song is on the money bout what its like.

    Gotta just chin up n get on with it. At the same time nothing wrong with letting it get to you, its the fact it gets to you that makes you want to get over it and thats what spurrs you on to move one.

    ..again just what i took from it. :D

    General CommentI lost someone dear to me when this song had just come out and I realise it is about a relationship that has broken down but the chorus especially really felt to me during that time
