I walk away from you
For the first time
Strong.

And I did my best
To see it through.
Now I'm watching you
Just thinking
I'm wrong.

But I only wanted you to know
That I never wanted you to go.

I know I was
Everything you're not supposed to be
To someone that you love
To someone that you love
To someone that you love

That you love, that you love.

You walk away from me
For the first time
Sure.

And you did your best
But you don't see
How free
It feels
Without you and me.

I only wanted you to know
That I never wanted you to go.

I know I was
Everything you're not supposed to be
To someone that you love
To someone that you love
To someone that you love

That you love, that you love.

And I crash and I burn
And I toss and I turn.

I belong to you.

You provoked and you broke
All my dreams and my hope.

And I'm sitting still.

I feel trapped and alone
I thank God you are gone.

I sleep better now.

I feel free and I see
What you are without me.

I'm alive again.

I only wanted you to know
That I never wanted you to go.

I know I was
Everything you're not supposed to be
To someone that you love
To someone that you love
To someone that you love

That you love, that you love.

That you love.

Na,na, na, na,...

That you love. (x12)

    General Comment:I've just finished reading One Day by David Nicholls, and this song sums up the relationship between the two main characters perfectly in my opinion.

    It's a song that says despite how much you love someone, sometimes they're not the right person for you, and it's being strong and walking away from that and starting afresh, despite all the pain it will cause. Well that's my take on it anyway.
