I can't hide the way I feel about you anymore.
I can't hold the hurt inside, keep the pain out of my eyes anymore.

My tears no longer waiting.
My resistance ain't that strong.
My mind keeps recreating a love with you alone
And I'm tired of pretending
I don't love you anymore.

Let me make one last appeal
To show you how I feel about you. Mm hm.
'Cause there's no one else I swear holds a candle anywhere
Next to you. Mm hm

My heart can't take the beating
Not having you to hold.
A small voice keeps repeating
Deep inside my soul.
It says I can't keep pretending
I don't love you anymore.

I've got to take the chance or let it pass by
If I expect to get on with my life.

My tears no longer waiting.
Oh my resistance ain't that strong.
Oh my mind keeps recreating
A love with you alone.
And I'm tired of pretending
I don't love you anymore.

    General Commentnot really a break up sony lyricalnut. he is saying that he was pretending that he doesnt love her anymore and he really still does and he wants her to know. he knows he was letting his pride get the best of him and now he wants to tell her how he really feels and that he cant go on without her. Well, none the less its a good song either way.

    General CommentI think it's both.. He made a mistake breaking up with her and then just lived with it, but he's tired of trying to move on and pretending he wants to, and he wants to get back together with her. He's simply asking for her back.

    General CommentI dont see how it can be anything but a break up song. The girl dumped him and he is pretending that he is over her, but he can no longer deny that he still loves her.

    General CommentI think that he wants her back and that he is tired of pretending that he is ok with her not being in her life. He has to face the fact that he messed up.

    General CommentThis is a song of indecision. He remembers the way it was when he was with her and how good it was. However, he has a lot of pain inside from whatever went wrong and is scared to go back. He's not sure what his real emotions are and he feels like he's living a life of pretend and he just wants to end all his pain.

    General CommentReading some of the preceding comments makes me wonder about perspectives. Like, when I see blue, do some others see orange or something. I don't see this as a guy breaking up with someone; the breakup has already occurred. I certainly don't see indecision; he knows what he wants and is going after it.

    To me, this song is clearly about a guy who split with someone; doesn't really matter who instigated it. He went around saying (and lying) to everybody, including himself, that he didn't love them anymore, in hopes of looking tough or convincing himself that it was true. But now, he's given that up, can't do it no more, and is pretty much shouting from the rooftops that he does love them, wants them back, and doesn't want to live without them.

    This is a great song, hearbreaking. If you love it, I suggest you seek out the live acoustic version, just Travis and his guitar. To me, it equals the original version, a little more subdued but no less powerful.

    General Commentwow. such powerful lyrics. great break up song. i don't think it needs much explaining. i do feel his pain though. i just didn't have the guts to do anything like that after i had heard this song. she was already with someone else and it felt as if it had been too long. great song though.

    General CommentI agree with lyricalnut, I think its a break up song, since he is hurting, and alot more people can relate to it more if it is a break up song. Oh well, I love this song

    General CommentI've never really looked at the lyrics before, I just listened to them. Now that Pool_Shark pointed it out, I'm gonna have to agree with him.. I think he's saying he still does love her and is tired of pretending he doesnt
