I wish I could read your mind.
Words don't mean a thing.
I've given you all my time.
All you do is leave.

And if you were standing here in front of me
I know you would say
"There's nothing oh so precious as something that's gone Away."
And if there is a reason
I just don't want to know
Why you feel the need to love me so.

Only when you go.
Only when you go.

    General CommentI see this as meaning that there is a guy who likes this girl but she is only attracted to him when he leaves and she doesn't understand how he could ever like her.

    General CommentIt has been so long since i've listened to this song, and I just fell in love with it again. I agree with Maliejandra on the song meaning.
