I asked her to stay, but she wouldn't listen
She left before I had the chance to say
Oh
The words that would mend
The things that were broken
But now it's far too late, she's gone away

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe it

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

The taste of her breath, I'll never get over
The noises that she made kept me awake
Oh
The weight of the things that remained unspoken
Built up so much it crushed us everyday

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe it

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Of all the things I felt but never really shown
Perhaps the worst is that I ever let you go
I should not ever let you go, oh oh oh

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you
And I won't go home without you
And I won't go home without you
I won't go home without you

    The boy just wanted to say to the girl. "HEY PLEASE, LET ME EXPLAIN!". Hmm. Girls,. Would you let him explain?. Commonly, girls don't, they would just say. "ITS TOO LATE! WHAT I HAVE SAW WAS ENOUGH". Am I not right?. Try. Try to give boys a chance. If you just want. Not all boys are bad. Maybe, you have just learned wrong.
    Not only girls cry when having a break- up. Also boys. Like the boy in the song. I love this song.

    This song is great. It describes my situation perfectly. I went out with a girl for a little over a year and a half, and I found out that she likes another guy who lives probably an hour and a half away. It broke my heart, but I let her go so she could be with that guy even tho I still love her. I regret doing it so much and miss her beyond belief. All I want is the best for her, but it hurts me so much that I let something that was so good get away from me. I would say that if you had to choose one section to explain my situation it would be, "Of all the things I felt but never really shown Perhaps the worst is that I ever let you go I should not ever let you go, oh oh oh". I can relate to anyone whos let something so important to them go.

    It's about this guy, who loves this girl. They fight at the beginning, and she leaves before he can tell her how he feels. And he's out looking for her, saying "i may not make it through the night, i won't go home without you", meaning he'd rather die before going home without her. It's such a powerful song, in that it's an epic love story, in which there is no end. It's adorable.

    Wow! This song is superb. Basically I can relate to the song. One of my greatest fear in life is to have regrets. But one things for sure there is always a reason why things happen. And I know its for the best. Just hope for the best and never fear to love again. The right person will come like a thief in the night without you expecting it. So be ready!. Thanks maroon 5. Great song!

    Well, there's this guy I like a lot and we've gone to school together for 3 years and we just graduated and I will probably never see him again ever because for high school, he's going to a boarding school in California. We were both at a beach party together and I could tell that he liked me to. It was pretty obvious. I really want to go out with him but I don't want to if he's going to move away after the summer. The point is that he's going to be here this summer and he lives in my neighborhood and loves to play basketball at the school down the street from where I live and today, I rode my bike around the basketball court, listening to this song, seing if he would notice me and trying to find a way for us to get start dating or just solve my problems. That is what this song means to me. I start crying when I hear it. I love this guy!
