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.

    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.

    You wait, sit tight around the corner, waiting impatiently for a word, a call or a message to end the suspense of time. Heart faint of waiting, in rage for hanging on still. Yet, you still hang in there, believing in tomorrow terrified of the thought, yet something insides holds on still. Then you wonder if it is worth it, and your faith bothers you. Will a mere man have this effect on your life, what about god who ordained the world from ancient times, he painted the flowers, the trees, and sky, he even made the mountain. Won't you trust, won't you let go. But what if this is it, what if you are the one to define love.

    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.

    Not wanting to let go of someone you love who has an addiction. Recognizing the person you fell in love with isn't there anymore. Knowing that in order for them to survive you need stop enabling. It is the hardest thing outside of watching them die a slow and painful death. Knowing you did everything you could to save them. Then realizing there is nothing you can do to save someone who doesn't want to be saved. The worry and fear of not knowing if they are ok, hurt, lost or scared.
    The feeling of being lost without them. The fear that they will never know how painfull it was to do what needed to be done in order for them to have a chance at recovery.
    To pray that someday there will be forgiveness. The burdon of not knowing if you made the right decission, feeling the pain of loss, the loss of trust, the hurt at the anger that is directed at you. The fear of moving forward and wanting them to catch up. And through it all still loving them with all your heart. I will always love you D. T. P ~ your wife and children.
