From bad luck
I'm walking away
I'm not getting stuck
I'm not gonna stay
To good things
I'm moving ahead
I'm tired of dying
I'm living instead

Once in a while I'll wake up
Wondering why we gave up
But once in a while
Comes and it fades away

The sun's up and lighting the sky
I never could see it
It just passed me by
Good things keep moving along
I'm not looking backward
For something that's gone

Once in a while I'll wake up
Wondering why we gave up
But once and a while
Comes and fades away

I don't know what love is
I'm selfish and lazy
And when I get scared
I can act like I'm crazy

When I think of your kisses
I'm still gonna smile
I'm still gonna miss you
Once in a while
Once in a while

Once in a while I'll wake up
Wondering why we gave up
But once in a while
Comes and it fades away

Good things keep moving ahead
I'm tired of dying
I'm living instead

    General Commentbeautiful. it talks about past relationship.
    she is basically saying bye to the relationship.
    ''I'm tired of dying
    I'm living instead''


    yet, she still miss the whole relationship

    Once in a while I'll wake up
    Wondering why we gave up
    But once and a while
    Comes and fades away''

    ''And when I get scared
    I can act like I'm crazy ''
    saying she done some crazy thing when she was still insecure in that relationship. ''

    General CommentI agree with linguini

    ''And when I get scared
    I can act like I'm crazy ''

    This can also refer to how people get scared when their (ex-)partner ends the relationship and they act silly in trying to convince their partner to change their mind...
