And I swear that you don't have to go
I thought we could wait for the fireworks
And I thought we could wait for the snow
To wash over Georgia and kill the hurt
I thought I could live in your arms
And spend every moment I had with you
Stay up all night with the stars
Confess all the faith that I had in you (I had in you)

Too late, I'm sure and lonely
Cause It's another night, another dream wasted on you
Just be here now against me
You know the words so sing along for me, Baby

For heaven's sake I know you're sorry
But you won't stop crying
This anniversary may never be the same
Inside I hope you know I'm dying
With my heart beside me
In shattered pieces that may never be replaced
And if I died right now you'd never be the same

I thought with a month of apart
Together would find us an opening
And moonlight would provide the spark
And that I would stumble across the key
(Or break down the door to your heart)
Forever could see us not you and me
Or you'd help me out of the dark
And I'd give my heart as an offering
(As an offering)

To late, I'm sure and lonely
It's another night, another dream wasted on you
So just be here now against me
You know the words so sing along for me, Baby

For heaven's sake I know you're sorry
But you won't stop crying
This anniversary may never be the same
Inside I hope you know I'm dying
With my heart beside me
In shattered pieces that may never be replaced
And if I died right now you'd never be the same

Cause I will always remember you as you are right now to me
And I will always remember you now, remember you now

So sleep alone tonight with no one here just by your side
Sleep alone tonight [keep on repeating]
How does he feel, how does he kiss
How does he taste while he's on your lips
How does he feel, how does he kiss
I can't forget you
I know you want me to want you I want to
But I can't forgive you
So when this is over don't blow your composure baby
I can't forget you
I know you want me to want you I want to
I can't forget you
So when this is over don't blow your composure baby
I can't forget you
I know you want me to want you I want to.

    So this girl cheats on her long-term boyfriend, and the boy was going to propose, but instead he found out that she cheated on him. But he still loves her, but he can't be with her because he's afraid that she'll cheat on him again, so he ends it, even though he still loves/cares about the girl.

    Oh yeah, & it's not about Derek.. it's about Jake, i've met the dude;) He wrote it about his 5 year girlfriend he was going to propose to i think. Unless he wrote it based on someone elses life:S

    It reminds me of my boyfriend. He knows whenever i listen to this song i think of him, but a while back he slept with one of my friends and it's the first time the lyrics actually fit. Bad times? We're back together now. I've written 2 poems based on this song, & wrote another one called 'I Can't Forget You'

    i think this song is about a girl cheating on a boy and he is still deeply in love with her but he can't forgive her for what she has done to him. she also wants him back but he's scared that she'll do the same thing again. and the finds it to hard to deal with and he doesn't want her to do it again. so he isn't going to get back with her. he loved her so much and he doesn't want to forget her but he has to.

    i also love the way he sings i can't forget you (LL)

    welll... i think the guy wants to take this girl back
    but she cheated on him
    and he still loves/ cares about her a lot
    but he cant forgive and forget what she has done to him
