"Break Your Plans" as written by Rami Yacoub, Joakim Berg, Carl Falk, Wayne Hector, Joe King, Isaac Slade, Ben Wysocki and Dave Welsh....
I wish I had cheated
At least that’s a reason
I’d understand why you’re leaving now

We both stopped breathing
It could not last
I guess I’m just afraid to ask

But what if you don’t?
What if you stay and

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, make this thing right
But break your plans for me tonight
Tonight

You call this closure
It’s barely over
How do you move on so fast?

Maybe there’s someone
Maybe it’s all gone
I guess I’m just afraid to look back

But all that counts
Is what comes next

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, make this thing right
Break your plans for me tonight

And I know better
Than to stay just wondering for it
Will you stay and be with me?

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, no guarantee we’ll make it
Just break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, no guarantee we’ll make it
Just break your plans for me tonight

    My InterpretationI wish I had cheated
    At least that’s a reason
    I’d understand why you’re leaving now

    Apparently, she seems to be leaving him without telling why. And he wishes he did something wrong((at least there's a reason)),just to stop thinking about the million reasons why she could be leaving him

    We both stopped breathing
    It could not last
    I guess I’m just afraid to ask

    He realized before that they were losing the fire that a relationship must have. There's no way it could last anymore, once there's no feelings. He wants so badly to know why she's letting go of him, but he's afraid of what she may answer.

    But what if you don’t?
    What if you stay and...

    He starts questioning himself what could happen if they didn't break up. Could they save themselves?

    Break your plans tonight
    Lay your hand in mine
    There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, make this thing right
    But break your plans for me tonight
    Tonight...

    He's asking her to break her plans of tearing it all apart. Even though they might not be able to feel as in love as they were when they first met, he really asks her to give themselves one more chance. They shouldn't let go so easily like this... Maybe doing things that they used to do back when they felt that connection, like laying hands, they could revive that relationship.

    You call this closure
    It’s barely over
    How do you move on so fast?

    In this verse, he tells how badly she wants to end the relationship. But he really can't stand the thought that is really over, he asks her in his own mind, "how can she forget him so easily? i mean, we drift away but deep down, i know we love each other."

    Maybe there’s someone
    Maybe it’s all gone
    I guess I’m just afraid to look back

    He asks himself if she's cheating on him, if she's starting to like someone else. And start to think that maybe the relationship ended a long time ago and he might was the only one who couldn't see, as he says in the song: "i guess i'm just afraid to look back"

    But all that counts
    Is what comes next

    The most important moment is what is gonna happen when they break up. What kind of relationship that they're gonna have after it?What kind of position is she gonna take with him? How is gonna feel about it all? Is he gonna make it? Will they ever get back together one more time?

    And I know better
    Than to stay just wondering for it
    Will you stay and be with me?

    This is the moment when he stops questioning himself about all of it and take a stand. He finally just take a position. He finally asks.
