Don't speak my name like it belongs in your mouth
When everything's the same I just want something else
What makes you better than me?
If you still end up all by yourself
What makes you think that I want to help you now?
Don't come back to me
I'll show the world that I can finally breathe without these words
It's just a story that goes untold
It's just a feeling I've never known before
I won't forgive you for this
So just know that you won't be missed

So don't come back to me
Now that you're gone I can finally breathe again
And I won't forget you
These days here without you are the best that I've ever had
So don't come back to me
Now that you're gone I can finally breathe again
And I won't forgive you for this
So just know that you won't be missed

What makes you better than me?
Look at the person that you've become
I know you never tried at all
Don't ever speak my name again
It won't be long until we reach the end
It's just a story that goes untold
But I can breathe and there's room for me to grow
I won't forgive you for this
So just know that you won't be missed

So don't come back to me
Now that you're gone I can finally breathe again
And I won't forget you
These days here without you are the best that I've ever had
So don't come back to me
Now that you're gone I can finally breathe again
And I won't forgive you for this
So just know that you won't be missed

(You won't be missed)
Don't speak my name again
I won't forgive you
I won't forget
(You won't be missed)
Don't speak my name again
It won't be long until we reach the end

    A complex relationship that came to a bitter end
    A great break up song
    When its time to pick up and move on

    It shows that that significant individual won't be forgiven for leaving and that in the end you are the one who doesn't want them back

    Similar meaning to the guy above me. Don't speak my name again
    I won't forgive you
    I won't forget
    (you won't be missed)
    Don't speak my name again
    It won't be long until we reach the end
