I was all for you
You fell over my love
I just can't afford it this time

Here's a story, just bare with me
Met a drug that changed my life
Something like a classic movie
Just one look all stopped with time
Let her in through these very veins
Coursing through these tired bones
Numb my body
Healed my heart
Soothed my mind
And eased my soul

These are the memories between us
Let it go and let live again
I was all for you
You fell over my love
I just can't afford it this time
I was all for you
You fell over my love
I just can't afford it this time

You let me live
Believing all your life
You let me live your lie
Live your lie
You let me believe
And live your lie
Guess I should have seen this coming
Should have known it all along
You're a fake
See clear right through you
Left me dying it's all your fault

These are the memories between us
Let it go and let live again
I was all for you
You fell over my love
I just can't afford it this time
I was all for you
You fell over my love
I just can't afford it this time

I gave you everything
And you just throw away
Know what I deserve
Know that I should let
Let you go
Let you go
This is me letting you go

I was all for you
You fell over my love
I just can't afford it this time
I was all for you
You fell over my love
Now I'm left with thoughts of suicide

Let you go you're killing me.

    The negatives of a relationship outweight the positives and so he must let her go to be happy, even though its killing him he knows its for the best as it wouldnt work between them.

    The song is about someone who was cleary in love with a person and one day it just fell to pieces because they couldnt give each other the things they wanted

    This song represents someone falling in love with someone that doesn't care as much as they do and they can't deal with lies and heartbreak anymore.

    Good songwriters write songs that could have multiple meanings, that way they appeal to a bigger audience and songs relate to more people

    'i met a drug that changed my life. ' austin's ex-wife could easily be the drug because he was addicted to her or something idk lyrics aren't always so literal.
