Oh, don’t you save me from hangin’ on
I tell myself what we had is gone
And after all that I put you through
I get knocked out like I never knew

It kept me real 'til I'm moving on
But you can’t leave feeling like you did no wrong
It's a shame I can't get it together now
It's a shame we can't get it together now
Cause I'm aching but

I fell right in when you gave me up
Those golden days snuck away from us
Lately, I've been close but I'm up to trouble
Those golden days keep you hanging on

It kept me real 'til I'm movin on
But you can't leave feeling like you did no wrong
It's a shame I can't get it together now
It's a shame we can't get it together now
Cause I'm searching for those golden days

Cause I'm searching for those golden days

    My InterpretationIt's a breakup. He wants it, he might have even initiated it, but the sun is setting on this relationship.

    He keeps referencing the Golden Days of the relationship, and how he regrets that they just can't go back to the way things were. He also talks about how the thought of those days were really the only thing keeping them going.

    These are the thoughts of a mature and communicative person when going through a breakup. No blaming, no petty fighting, just an odd balance between wondering what you could've done better and the perpetual thought: what a shame. He knows it, all of their friends know it too. Sometimes things just don't work out.

    My favorite part is that he understands all of this. He misses the Golden Days, but he also gets to look back on them fondly. Maybe time will pass and these two will find each other again.
