You've chosen your path
But when you look back
Your empty trail will be there to guide you
Just open your eyes
And see what you've left behind
All that's left inside you

Turn around there's nothing left to see
There's nothing left for you and me
Go on your shallow ways
Turn around there's nothing left to see
There's nothing left for you or me
You chose this so go

You chose this so go
You chose this so go

You can't hold back the lies
There's no sign of slowing down
Your lies became the water
You're flooding this town
I can't hold back my eyes
Watching you lay on the ground
I can't believe the lies
That flooded this whole town

Turn around there's nothing left to see
There's nothing left for you and me
Go on your shallow ways
Turn around there's nothing left to see
There's nothing left for you or me
You chose this so go

Turn around there's nothing left to see
There's nothing left for you and me
Go on your shallow ways
Turn around there's nothing left to see
There's nothing left for you or me
You chose this so go

You chose this so go
You chose this so go

    General CommentWow beautiful song. I can't believe no one has posted comments on this yet. I think it's about a girl that he has broken up with because he can't handle all of her lies.

    Song MeaningI went through the same crap I can relate to this. What I think it's about is A girl who leaves him and he's saying go ahead leave, she thinks she's better off without him, but hes not going to wait here for her because he knows she will come back, because he was so good to her

    You've chosen your path
    But when you look back
    Your empty trail will be there to guide you
    Just open your eyes
    And see what you've left behind
    All that's left inside you


    Then she comes back but, he's over her because of all the lies

    You can't hold back the lies
    There's no sign of slowing down
    Your lies became the water
    You're flooding this town
    I can't hold back my eyes
    Watching you lay on the ground
    I can't believe the lies
    That flooded this whole town

    All her lies are causing more drama and more pain her lies are getting worse and worse

    Turn around there's nothing left to see
    There's nothing left for you and me
    Go on your shallow ways
    Turn around there's nothing left to see
    There's nothing left for you or me
    You chose this so go

    He saying there's nothing left for us,
    Go on your shallow ways, All her games all the lies all the pain
    You chose this so go
