Not close
It's time to move on
Just one last time and I'm gone
Keep telling myself that it's fun to control
And that's a lie I did well know
I'll return to the scene of the crime
And I'll gather my pride
Still I know you'll be long gone
Nausea comes as the fear builds inside
Seems much stronger than I
Still I know you're gone

I can't remember
The day that you told me
I won't be there, I'm not that strong
Holding these memories
I feel unfolding
This is the last time
Now I'm gone

Not close
It's time to move on
Just one last time and I'm gone
Done holding my breath
Keep praying it's over
Still I fear what's coming
I'll return to the scene of the crime
Seems much stronger than I
Still I know

I can't remember
The day that you told me
I won't be there, I'm not that strong
Holding these memories
I feel unfolding
This is the last time
Now I'm gone

Oh
Now I can see the light of day from here
I guess you helped make me strong
And when I think of what you put me through
It's better that we moved on
And I'll close this chapter
Move on
Soon I'll be long gone
And I walk away
And I walk away from
From You

I can't remember
The day that you told me
I won't be there, I'm not that strong
Holding these memories
I feel unfolding
This is the last time
Now I'm gone
(Yea)
Now I'm Gone
(Yea)

    I feel it's the person was told that dreadful "i don't know (if i love you anymore) or told outright that "i don't love you". They are still being strung by this person who is in the process of leaving them. Yet he goes back to this... But knows that they'll be long gone (emotionally and perhaps physically) and now the victim intends to walk away before the hammer falls.

    I interpret it as someone who is tryin to recover from self harm, or their friend is. Either the narrator or their friend is suicidal. At least this is what i feel when i listen to this song. Perhaps it's because i'm going through the before mentioned.

    You got most of the lyrics wrong. Jus sayin. I close this chapter, move on. Keep telling myself that it's under control.

    Cheers for the lolz doe.

    So hard listening to this, reflecting exactly how i feel about someone in my life right now. Such a good song, though.
