Lately nothing I do ever seems to please you
And maybe turning my back would be that much easier
Cause hurtful words are all that we exchange
But I can't watch you walk away

Can I forget about the way it feels to touch you?
And all about the good times that we've been through
Could I wake up without you every day?
Would I let you walk away?

No, I can't learn to live without
And I can't give up on us now

(Chorus)
Oh, I know I could say were through
And tell myself I'm over you
But even if I made a vow
I promise not to miss you now
And try to hide the truth inside
I fell cause I, I just can't live a lie

Could I forget the look that tells me that you want me?
And all the reasons that make loving you so easy
The kiss that always makes it hard to breathe
The way you know just what I mean

No, I can't learn to live without
Ohh, so don't you give up on us now

Ohh, I know I could say were through
And tell myself I'm over you
But even if I made a vow
I promise not to miss you now
And try to hide the truth inside
I fell cause I, I just can't live a lie

Ohh, and I don't wanna try

Ohhhh, I know I could say were through
And tell myself I'm over you
But even if I made a vow
I promise not to miss you now
And try to hide the truth inside
I fell cause I, I just can't live a lie

I just can't live a lie

But even if I made a vow
I promise not to miss you now
And try to hide the truth inside
I fell cause I, I just can't live a lie

Oh, I can't live a lie x2

    this song is about someone who tells everyone including herself that she is over her ex, when she is not. She is getting sick of lying to everyone and herself. she doesnt wanna live without him anymore.

    I think the meaning of this song it that no matter how hard the relationship is and even if there are hurtful things that are said, you still know that inside you love them and couldn't live without them and that if you tried you couldn't because it would be a lie. and you couldn't live a lie.

    I personally think the song's meaning is about trying to make oneself feel better after a breakup by forgetting everything, pretending it doesn't matter, etc...But that she just can't do that as it would be a lie and she is still deeply in love and can't let go of something that meant everything to her.
