Tell me where our time went
And if it was time well spent
Just don't let me fall asleep
Feeling empty again

'Cause I fear I might break
And I fear I can't take it
Tonight I'll lay awake, feeling empty

I can feel the pressure
It's getting closer now
We're better off without you
I can feel the pressure
It's getting closer now
We're better off without you

Now that I'm losing hope
And there's nothing else to show
For all of the days that we spent
Carried away from home

Somethings I'll never know
And I had to let them go
I'm sitting all alone, feeling empty

I can feel the pressure
It's getting closer now
We're better off without you
I can feel the pressure
It's getting closer now
We're better off without you

Somethings I'll never know, and I had to let them go
Somethings I'll never know, and I had to let them go
I'm sitting all alone feeling empty

I can feel the pressure
It's getting closer now
We're better off without you
Feel the pressure
It's getting closer now
You're better off with out me

    Hayley is trying to express how to break up with her boyfriend...but its hard cos shes feel some pressure... i think that what she meant by

    "I can feel the pressure...its gettin closer now...we're better off...without you"

    so she wants to get rid of him because she thinks it would do her good. But she is feelin sum pressure!

    i think it's about someone who's in a relationship but they are just wasting all this time in getting their hearts broken
