Adele – He Won't Go lyrics

Some say I'll be better without you,
But they don't know you like I do,
Or at least the sides I thought I knew,
I can't bear this time,
It drags on as I lose my mind,
Reminded by things I find,
Like notes and clothes you've left behind,
Wake me up, wake me up when all is done,
I won't rise until this battle's won,
My dignity's become undone,

But I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I'm willing to take the risk,
I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I'm willing to take the risk,

So petrified, I'm so scared to step into this ride,
What if I lose my heart and fail, declined,
I won't forgive me if I give up trying,
I heard his voice today,
I didn't know a single word he said,
Not one resemblance to the man I met,
Just a vacant broken boy instead,

But I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I'm willing to take the risk,
I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I am willing to take the risk,

There will be times, we'll try and give it up,
Bursting at the seams, no doubt,
We'll almost fall apart, then burn to pieces,
So watch them turn to dust,
But nothing will ever taint us,

I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I'm willing to take the risk,
I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I am willing to take the risk,

Will he, will he still remember me?
Will he still love me even when he's free?
Or will he go back to the place where he will choose the poison over me?
When we spoke yesterday,
He said to hold my breath and sit and wait,
I'll be home so soon, I won't be late,

He won't go,
He can't do it on his own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
He's willing to take the risk,
So I won't go,
He can't do it on his own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I'm willing to take the risk,

'Cause he won't go,
He can't do it on his own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
We're willing to take the risk,
I won't go,
I can't do it on my own,
If this ain't love, then what is?
I'm willing to take the risk.

    When I first heard this song. It hit home hard for me~ this is a song about a co-dependent woman who is in love with a person to who does not love himself enough to fix whats wrong, yest she does not love herself enough to move on, I'm in love an addict! My life is consumed with this! I can't let go because the sick relationship has become a war now that I can't win but I can't give up because there is a great person that they don't see and I don't feel I had to explain how I feel. If I make him better he will love me so I wont go. His addiction comes first and everytime its the same story~ a broken boy. And yes I can't do it on my own~ but when hes free will he remember me? Will he wanna be with me?. How much can you do to have someone get better than go have a life with another person. I know its sick :)

    It means what I went through and I am still going through.
    I got him off drugs and made his life turn around I helped him get a job and did everything no matter how bad he hurt me.
    And he started to do better well we broke up and he went back to his bad habbits and tells me he loves me then ignores me and tells me he loves me again but non of it matters becuz I will always be here for him cuz I love him no matter what happens.

    Its about a relatioship that has been torn apart by an addiction like alcohol. She feels she has lost her dignity by the thing she has put up with. Hes has left her to get help for his addiction. She is going to be by his side and not going to leave him at this difficult time. Even though she fears he will possibly choose his "poison" over her again at somepoint yet she's willing to take the risk. She wants so desperately to bring back the man she met amd he's willing to try. They both know the risks. Thier love for eachother was once so strong that they both want to get back to a time when things were good. Neither one of them will go.

    Inspite of everything they have gone through, they know that it is best to leave, but neither one of them can "just" do it. It takes two to walk away, "so they think". Even if she goes. He wont stop, he'll keep pulling her back with memories and she will do the same. But its painful and destroying them, but they are willing to take the risk. Sorry to say, that its not love. Love shouldn't be so painful.
