Well your taxi is leaving,
And I'm hear in the hall,
You know I only just kissed you,
But it feels like you've already gone,
To the other side of the world,

I try to keep it together,
Turn my face to the wall,
Take the next elevator,
But it feels like you've already gone,
To the other side of the world,

I know you're leaving you've got plans to make,
Don't catch me crying as you walk away,
I'm right here,
You're out there,
Till you're back again,
I'll be holding on,

But now I'm left with the silence,
On the 25th floor,
Above the city and sirens,
Cause it feels like you've already gone,
To the other side of the world,

I know you're leaving you've got plans to make,
Don't catch me crying as you walk away,
I'm right here,
You're out there,
Till you're back again,
I'll be holding on,

I got everything I want but tell me what's the use?
When the one thing that I need has no substitute,
So I'd run a thousand miles just to be with you,
Just to be with you,

You make your way through the traffic,
Forty minutes or more,
Get to the airport departures,
But it feels like you've already gone,
To the other side of the world,

I know you're leaving you've got plans to make,
But I know I can't just let you walk away,
So for wrong,
Or for right,
I'll be by your side,
We'll be holding on,

Now my taxi is waiting,
Told my friends not to call,
Got my suitcase and ticket,
By tomorrow you know I'll be gone,
To the other side of the world.

    For me, i first listened to this song like the day after my grandad died, so i cry every time i listen haha:(
    But i think it's about someone leaving, and they can't tell them not to because they don't want to ruin there future, so in the end they decide they can't be without them so they have to be with them..

    Figting to keep someone who is leaving you, and you having to fit their life. Fear of loosing someone who means so much to you that without them you are lost. Like jls giving up, without them i'd be lost, i'd travel a thousand miles just to hear them again xx
