Need I say I love you
Need I say I care
Need I say that emotions,
Something we don't share
I don't want to be sitting here
Trying to deceive you
Cos you know I know baby
That I don't wanna go.

We cannot live together
We cannot live apart
That's the situation
Ive known it from the start
Every time that I look at you
I can see the future
Cos you know I know babe
That I don't wanna go.

Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away
Is there nothing that I can say
To make you change your mind
I watch the world go round and round
And see mine turning upside down
Youre throwing it all away.

Now who will light up the darkness
Who will hold your hand
Who will find you the answers
When you don't understand
Why should I have to be the one
Who has to convince you
Cos you know I know baby
That I don't wanna go.

Someday you'll be sorry
Someday when you're free
Memories will remind you
That our love was meant to be
Late at night when you call my name
The only sound you'll hear
Is the sound of your voice calling
Calling after me.

Just throwing it all away
Throwing it all away
There's nothing I can say
Were throwing it all away
Yes were throwing it all away...

    It's about the end of a relationship, and how this one person doesn't want it to be over, and they are trying to explain to the other person that they don't want the relationship to be thrown away, that they want to stay together. But if they throw it away, they'll be sorry and they don't want regrets.

    I have know the meaning of this tune since it first came out!
    It was sooo perfectly written and sung. It still to this day blows me away when I hear it
    "It a woman of course "His X-wife", leaving and nothing can be done to stop it from happening
