(And when its said and done
You're the only one
And when its said and done
You're the only one
You're the only one)

Whoever said this pain
Would ever go away
Didn't know what it meant to
Be here without you
Is everything you see
Reminding you of me?
Does it hurt when you breathe too?
'Cause it does when I do
'Cause it does when I do

When anybody says your name, I wanna run away
I keep remembering and I can't forget you
It doesn't matter what I tried, it happens anyway
Its been forever and I can't forget you
With every single day, it won't go away
(The way I feel about you)
And when it's said and done you're the only one
And I can't regret you, so I can't forget you

(And when its said and done
You're the only one
And when its said and done
You're the only one
You're the only one)

I hate to feel this way
My days all feel the same
And yesterday was proof
That tomorrow will too
No matter what they say
Can't drink it all away
'Cause all that I do
Is think about you
Is think about you

When anybody says your name, I wanna run away
I keep remembering and I can't forget you
It doesn't matter what I tried, it happens anyway
It's been forever and I can't forget you
With every single day, it won't go away
(The way I feel about you)
And when its said and done you're the only one
And I can't regret you, so I can't forget
(So I can't forget you)

Stop haunting my dreams
Please set me free
Stop haunting my dreams
Please set me free
(You're the only one)

When anybody says your name, I wanna run away
I keep remembering and I can't forget you
It doesn't matter what I tried, it happens anyway
It's been forever and I can't forget you
With every single day, it won't go away
(The way I feel about you)
And when its said and done you're the only one
And I cant regret you

Stop haunting my dreams
(I cant forget you)
Please set me free
(It's been forever and I can't forget you)
Stop haunting my dreams
(I can't forget you)
Please set me free
(It's been forever and I can't forget you)

    General Comment:to me this is a song about permanently losing someone that you possibly could have saved; even if it wasn't your fault that the person had died you feel culpable anyway. the guilt eats away at you and even though you still have dreams about them, you think you're only remembering them because of the guilt, nothing else, and it really tears you down, wishing to be "set free".

    My Interpretation:To me this song is about someone who is still in love with someone who has left their life and is missing them and feeling that it's unbearable to be without them. They don't want to regret being with this person because she (seeing it from my perspective) brought so much into his life.

    Won't disagree that this interpretation could be colored with my current situation where I am torn between a journey that I have been preparing for over a year now and then this wonderful new person comes into my life and I really don't want to leave her despite there not being anything special between us. Its also a fear of loosing her that adds to that feeling.
