Let's grow old together
Let's be unhappy forever
Cause there's no one else in this world
That I'd rather be unhappy with
Let's be exposed and unprotected
Let's see one another when we're weak
Let's go our separate ways in the night like two moths
But know that you're flying home to me
I was born thinking it would all be dreaming
But I know that I wouldn't be happy that way

You wear me out with frustration and heartache and anger
But we wait for the wave just to wash it away
Don't say nothing
Just sit next to me
Don't say nothing
Shhh
Just be just be just be

Let's let go together
Let us unfold one another
And watch all the little things that once drew me to you
Eventually get on my nerves

I wear you out with frustration and heartache and anger
But we wait for the wave just to wash it away
Don't say nothing
Just sit next me
Don't say nothing
Shhh
Just be just be just be

When you're sick of the everyday ohhh
When you're tired of my voice
When you tell me you walk out that door
That's when I know that you'll stay oh

Don't say nothing
Just sit next to me
Don't say nothing
Just be just be
Just don't say nothing
Just sit next to me
Don't say nothing
Just be just be just

Don't say nothing
Shhh

    I see it as being about someone who is struggling to let a person go. Things might have been said, and rifts happened, but the person would rather take all of that unhappiness and have the person that they love, than lose them completely. Its about waiting to get past that barrier where one of you doesnt want to speak, and you finally get your feelings out in the open. Its basically saying, "lets just be together, its how its meant to be. Say what ever, do whatever, but promise you'll stay with me".

    I love it, and its my situation in this very moment.

    Me and my husband were recently on the brink of divorce. One night we were sat in the lounge in complete silence watching television and an advert with this song came on. The next day i came downstairs and my husband had been out and bought the cd and was sat playing it in the kitchen. We are working hard to patch things up and work it out now :)

    After 25 years married, this song captures all i can and do feel at times. I wouldn't be frustrated and angry at anyone else but my own peculiar, annoying beautiful wife.

    Seeing the negative parts to each other because they love each other, facing a reality to a relationship because they love each other, after an arguement not saying anything because they love each other
