You know I'm not one to break promises
I don't want to hurt you, but I need to breathe
At the end of it all, you're still my best friend
But there's something inside, that I need to release
Which way is right? which way is wrong?
How do I say that I need to move on?

You know we're headed separate ways

And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can't lie no more. I can't hide no more.
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

You've given me more that I can return
Yet there's oh so much that you deserve
Nothing to say, nothing to do,
I've nothing to give
I must leave without you

You know we're headed separate ways

And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can't lie no more. I can't hide no more.
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

So I'll be on my way

And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing that I can really say
I can't lie no more. I can't hide no more.
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

So I'll be on my way

So I'll be on my way

    I think it means that he's really good friends with his girlfriend and it seems weird dating his best friend and this is so relatable it hurts, it feels this way between me and my boyfriend -sigh-

    Sounds like his girl is getting "friend-zoned". It also appears that he really likes her and she really likes him but they can't be together for some reason or other, maybe relations have broken down?

    My take was that after being together, he has realized that they are not right for each other... Sometimes you love someone and you grow apart and even though you love them you are just not meant for each other and it's best to move on... Been feeling that lately and this song is reconfirming it for me.

    That he really does love her, and it scares him to death. So he bails rather than face his fear... Of what? Possibly her walking away from him.
