Hey you can tell the world
That you're leaving
And you can pack your bags
And spread your wings
And you can tell them all
That it's over
But while you wave goodbye
I'll be getting closer

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that to you it don't count
And I'll stand here if you prefer
Yes I'll leave you without a word
Without a word

And you can tell the world
That you're tired
But your excuses, they won't work
'Cause I'll know that you're lying
Every time that I see your face
I notice all the suffering
Just turn to my embrace
I won't let you come to nothing

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that to you it don't count
And I'll stand here if you prefer
Yes I'll leave you without a word
Without a word

    I think she might be talking about a significant other that is leaving and instead of having a peaceful parting they are breaking it off by saying everything they had didn't mean anything "it was all lies." She's saying she's there but she'll let them leave if that's what they choose.
    Although you can feel the sad emotion she's portraying, she is still saying she'll let go without a word if she has to.

    It's about caring for some1 and knowing them better than any1 else but being strong even to face rejection from them, so if they told u to walk away you'd leave them "without a word"
