[Jade]
I feel numb
Staring at the shower wall
It's begun
The feeling that the end
Has come
Now the water is cold
I tried to eat today
But the lump in my throat
Got in the way


[Jesy]
In this time
I've lost all sense of pride
I've called a hundred times
If I hear your voice
I'll be fine
And I
I can't come alive
I want the room to take me under
Cause I can't help but wonder
What if I
Had one more night
For goodbye
If you're not here to turn the lights off
I can't sleep
These four walls
And me

[Leigh-Anne]
I lay in bed
Can't seem to leave your side
The pillow's wet
From all these tears I've cried
I won't say goodbye
I tried to smile today
But then I realize there's no point anyway


[Perrie]
In this time
I've lost all sense of pride
I've cried a thousand times
If I hear your voice
I'll be fine


And I
I can't come alive
I want the room to take me under
Cause I can't help but wonder
What if I
Had one more night
For goodbye
If you're not here to turn the lights off
I can't sleep
These four walls
And me

Oh, oh, oh
Ohhhhh

[All]
And I
I can't come alive
I want the room to take me under
Cause I can't help but wonder
What if I
Had one more night
For goodbye
If you're not here to turn the lights off
I can't sleep

[Jesy]
These four walls
And me

    I this song is trying to show what people go through every day I mean if you hear little me It's basically this song but like saying you shouldnt think this way. I think what teyre trying to say is I felt this way an little me is the response. Like they were depressed at one point thinking these thoughts, that there was that someone who they thought meant the world to them and that these little things were important, but then in little me they say id go back and show myself It's not the end and that youre worth it. Honestly theyre showing that you feel this way but you shouldnt because theres something beautiful that you may not see yet and when you do youll wanna go back and show youself you made it. But to sum it up really this song I think is about having that one guy you love and they just hurt you because you feel not good enough and the depression makes it worse. This song means so much to me love the girls for making this song. They really spoke to the heart in this new album Salute. It's beautiful I reccomend it to all.

    No guys I think that someone has died. That like if she knew the person was going to die. And she had just one more night to say goodbye to the person.
    I think that her boyfriend has died. And that when she cries on his pillow, It's like their bed. And he's not there anymore as in the side he slept on in their bed.
    And when she called a thousand times, It's obvious that it wasn't on the telephone, but as in she needed him. She wanted just one more night with him, to say goodbye.
    It's obvious also that she is finding very hard to live without him. When she can't eat, shes in the shower, shes numb.
    Then when it says "the feeling like the end has come" like the feeling that she can't take it anymore. She feels like It's the end of her life.
    To summarize: I think that her boyfriend has died, and shes slowly loosing hope in her life, that she can't live without him. Shes slowly getting colder. She doesn't want to smile. Etc.

    To me, the whole song seems depressing. I dont know if it's just me, but whenever i hear "What if I / Had one more night / For goodbye" it means "what if i die tomorrow?" Salute is one of the best albums i have ever heard. all of the songs are amazing, and amazingly catchy. This is just one of my favourites, and it is a brilliant ballad from very talented artists.

    I think that this song is talking about mental illness. 3/4 people will suffer from at least one in their lifetime. Sicnr a lot of teenage girls look up to them. And many teenage girls suffer from depression and eating disorders (more than boys anyways. Not that boys don't) which kinda explains the whole song. It's about the life of someone struggling from a mental illness or depression from dealing with a loss of some sorts.

    I agree with the point about the 'what if I die tomorrow?' however I also think that it has an element of depression and suicide throughout as 'I tried to eat today' shows that they are obviously going through a tough time. Adding on to the point about death, I think it could show that they are trying to discover what would happen if they did commit suicide 'tonight' and are attempting to discover the consequences affecting the people around them if they did. I adore this song. Job well done.
