"I Won't Be There" as written by and Charles-andre/stinco Comeau....
I Don't want to make this
Harder then I have to this
Is how it has to be. There's
So many things I want to say but
You just don't listen to me.

I don't want to hurt you
You don't want to hurt me
I can't stand you and
You can't stand me.
We can't re-arrange we you can never
Change me, say good bye nothing I say
Can change you mind.
Because I can't stay tomorrow I'll
Be on my way. So don't expect to
Find me sleeping in my bed cause
When you wake up I won't be there I won't be there

Everything I say you find away to make it
Sound like I was born just yesterday.
And everything you thought me doesn't
Mean a thing so I am going my way.


This is the last night that I spend
At home. And it won't take long
For you to notice won't take long for you find out that I am gone.

[Chorus: x2]

[Chorus: x3]
I won't be there

    Song MeaningOh this song is pretty good, it basically means

    There's this teenager and he's sick of his parents controlling his life, he doesn't want to hurt them and he understands that they don't want to hurt them but he can't take it and just wants to get out of that house.

    Every teen can pretty much relate to this!

    General Commentwouldnt it be odd if this song was actually about leaving home... not a break up... and he is saying that everything his parents taught him doesnt mean anything to him so he is going his way... hmm something to think about

    General CommentTo me this is about just giving up on someone who's causing you problems. When you've had one of those issues where you could fight, scream, kick and yell but not matter what you're gonna end up back at square one, so it's better to just walk away from it all and don't turn back around.

    General Commenti hadn't realized why i like this song so much until i read that last post... props to you mxpxguy. gotta love the immaturity. sometimes it's best to just be honest and act like you're in middle school again. this is like the best song ever to play in your car and scream the words to...
