There wasn't much I used to need
A smile would blow a summer breeze through my heart
Now my mistakes are haunting me
Like winter came and put a freeze on my heart

I've lost the power to understand
What it takes to be a man with my heart
I saw you wanted this to end
You tried your best to be a friend to my heart

But I'm leaving this worry town
Please no grieving, my love, understand?

Whenever I was feeling wrong
I used to go and write a song from my heart
But now I feel I've lost my spark
No more glowing in the dark for my heart

So I'm leaving this worry town
Please no grieving, my love, understand?

Understand?
Understand?
Understand?
Understand?

Understand? (Can't you see I'm sick of fighting?)
Understand? (Can't you tell I've lost my way?)
Understand? (Look at me theirs no denying)
Understand? (I wont last another day)

So I'm leaving this worry town
Please no grieving, my love, understand?

Then I'm leaving this worry town
Please no grieving, my love, understand?

All my dreaming torn in pieces
All my dreaming torn in pieces
All my dreaming torn in pieces
All my dreaming torn in pieces now

    My InterpretationIn the first verse, the protagonist is stating what happened to him although he leaves some mystery for the listener because we don't know what was the turning point that left him in this big dilemma he's in now. He used to feel love and his partner made him smile, but something happened that made him lose all faith in love. He's disillusioned now and he's lost his faith entirely.

    He's stuck in an all is lost moment and nothing seems to be meaningful anymore ('But now I feel I've lost my spark'). He just wants to let it all end ('So I'm leaving this worry town') because that incident that happened to him is draining the life out of him '(I won't last another day)'. This song could either be about depression and understood like a suicide note or the protagonist is saving himself by getting out of a place that's not good for him.

    But the song ends with the protagonist saying 'All my dreaming torn in pieces' which refers back to having no hope whatsoever left. It's a very tragic and devastating song because you would have wanted him to regain some strength, some hope, a spark.
