"Half A Heart" as written by and Stephen Paul Robson Lindy Robbins....
So your friend's been telling me
You've been sleeping with my sweater
And that you can't stop missing me
Bet my friend's been telling you
I'm not doing much better
'Cause I'm missing half of me

And being here without you is like I'm waking up to

Only half a blue sky
Kinda there but not quite
I'm walking around with just one shoe
I'm half a heart without you
I'm half a man at best
With half an arrow in my chest
I miss everything we do
I'm half a heart without you

Forget all we said that night
No, it doesn't even matter
'Cause we both got split in two
If you could spare an hour or so
We'll go for lunch down by the river
We can really talk it through

And being here without you is like I'm waking up to

Only half a blue sky
Kinda there but not quite
I'm walking around with just one shoe
I'm half a heart without you
I'm half a man at best
With half an arrow in my chest
'Cause I miss everything we do
I'm half a heart without you

Half a heart without you
I'm half a heart without you

Though I try to get you out of my head
The truth is I got lost without you
And since then I've been waking up to

Only half a blue sky
Kinda there but not quite
I'm walking around with just one shoe
I'm half a heart without you
I'm half a man at best
With half an arrow in my chest
I miss everything we do
I'm half a heart without you

Without you, without you, half a heart without you
Without you, without you, I'm half a heart without you

    My Interpretation"So your friend's been telling me
    You've been sleeping with my sweater
    And that you can't stop missing me
    Bet my friend's been telling you
    I'm not doing much better
    'Cause I'm missing half of me"

    They were together at one point, but now they're not together. Neither of them are doing well. They probably regret splitting up.

    "And being here without you
    Is like I'm waking up to

    Only half a blue sky
    Kinda there, but not quite
    I'm walking 'round with just one shoe
    I'm half a heart without you
    I'm half a man, at best
    With half an arrow in my chest
    I miss everything we do
    I'm half a heart without you"

    The boy's world feels empty, or not complete. He needs her to complete his world. His life feels meaningless. Like when you live but you don't really have a point. You're just "Kinda there, but not quite"

    "Forget all we said that night
    No, it doesn't even matter
    'Cause we both got split in two
    If you could spare an hour or so
    We'll go for lunch down by the river
    We can really talk it through"

    They probably had an argument which made they separate. He hopes they can meet up. He wants to talk about it to make up.

    "Half a heart without you
    I'm half a heart without you"

    He needs her.

    "Though I try to get you out of my head
    The truth is, I got lost without you
    And since then, I've been waking up to..."

    He can't stop thinking about her. Since they broke up he's not compete, he's lost.

    General Comment1. if his missing one was female then that part would be better be like "... So your girls /or girl friends/ been telling me.." instead “..friends..”. If his missing one was female and her friends were male and also those friends knows him then how her boyfriends will know that she is sleeping with his sweeter. It is like, she is running to “boyfriends” who are also knows him, and scandalize about how she is mourning about their bake up but she can’t find an hour to see him or… or… she is living with “boyfriends” under one roof.
    2. " ...I am walking 'round with just one shoe...", to complete pair of men shoes need another men’s' shoe instead high healed pump or whatever. When you walking with someone and look down then you will see 2 different shoe, and if that someone is counter gender then probably you won’t feel those shoes as a pair.
    3. " I am a half a man at best.." why this part is not like ".. i am half body /one/ person or whatever/ at best.." but exactly ".. a man..." like a half male body what needs another half male...
    4. back to beginning, their friends who are really close, knows them both and their relationship and probably feels bad for them, they are conveying how they feeling without each other. This couple is not separated due to distance, /because they are close maybe they can see each other within hour/ but by some rule and this rule is not good or wrong, so that is why their friends supporting their relationship. So common reason of any ordinary couple split up is due to unloving or relevant to money and fame.
    If they love each other and the reason of their separation is wrong and related to money or fame, and they had to do this by some strange rule, and his loving one is male then can you calculate what actually happened between them? Or is there can be any other possible situation?

    General CommentBasically he regrets ever spilling up with his girlfriend, he feels lost like he has nothing left of him. He feels empty. They had an argument which caused them to go there different ways but both miss each other and he wants to meet up to discuss things because they didn't finish on good terms.

    Sorry for this story but it really relates to me, my situation. I was with a guy for 3 years and it was a magical 3 years. I loved him so much, he meant everything to me. We would do everything together and always been close together since we were around about 12/13 years old. But then rumour after rumour came about and it was so confusing because it was my best friends who were telling me these rumours, so I didn't know who to believe which caused a lot of arugments and we spilt up. I miss him so much, and I'm close to his friends and they tell me he trying to move on and show he's not bothered but it's not fooling them.

    Just thought I was tell this story incase any of you have similar stories and needed something to relate too. Hope this helps!! X
