I'm gonna tell you what you need to hear
And I'm a little too late
By three or four years
And it may not make much sense
Now that we are apart
But I'm going to stop pretending
That I didn't break your heart

You see I never thought enough of myself
To realize that losing me could mean
Something like the tears in your eyes
And I want to tell you I'm sorry
And it's too late to start
But I'm going to stop pretending
That I didn't break your heart

And it's christmas eve
Years down the line
Sitting here wishing I'd treated you better
When you where mine
And I have no way of knowing where you are
But I'm going to stop pretending
That I didn't break your heart

I didn't mean to hurt you
I didn't know what I was doing
But I know what I have done

    "You see I never thought enough of myself
    To realize
    That losing me could mean something
    Like the tears in your eyes"

    General Commentmaybe you split with someone
    you dont realise how much you can mean to someone. you dont value yourself half as much as someone values you?
    you cant understand why someone would give a shite that youre not with you but they do. you break them but you dont mean to.

    General CommentA long-time friend offer me this song last Christmas... I'm french, and I didn't know what was the exact meaning 'til now (don't got english-speaking ear)... Huh, I think it's well-appropriated... I love it so much & loved her too much ^^

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who for so long been acting like the victim and thinking they're the one who have been hurt. Completely blind to what they did to the other person.. Until time passes and they get time to reflect and see the damage theey did to someone who loved them so they finally own up to what they did hence " I'm gonna stop pretending that I didn't break your heart"
