Rascal Flatts – What Hurts The Most lyrics

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don't bother me
I can take a few tears now and then
And just let 'em out
I'm not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again
I pretend I'm ok, but that's not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And havin' so much to say
And watchin' you walk away
And never knowin'
What could've been
And not seein' that lovin' you
Is what I was trying to do

It's hard to deal with the pain of losin' you every where I go
But I'm doin' it
It's hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I'm alone
Still harder
Gettin' up, gettin' dressed, livin' with this regret, but I know
If I could do it over
I would trade, give away, show the words that I saved in my heart that I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Is being so close
And havin' so much to say
And watchin' you walk away
And never knowin'
What could've been
And not seein' that lovin' you
Is what I was tryin' to do

Uhh hey yeaaaaaaaaah!

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And havin' so much to say
And watchin' you walk away
And never knowin'
What could've been
And not seein' that lovin' you
Is what I was tryin' to do

Not seeing that loving you
That's what I was trying to do

Ohh ohh!

    I think the song is about letting go, losing some one hurts yes and your alowed to break, but what hurts the most isn't that they are gone but that they never got the chance to say and do what they really wanted to, never having the chance to say I love you or to have a future together hurts more then anything. Loving him was everything and she kept it a secret because she didn't want to hurt herself and him and yet words are normally broken by words left unspoken and she found out the hard way, the meaning is when you feel strongly about some thing then don't keep it in side, if it means some thing to you then its important, don't leave it till its too late, because you don't want to get hurt because it will hurt more haveing to say it to a grave stone.

    When I listened to the song, I thought it talked about regrets and having a relationship end when you still love the person and didn't get to do or say what you wanted. I love the video, it gave me chills when I watched it (so sad!), but I don't think it matches the song as well. I get what they're saying tho; theres lots of ways you can lose someone, lots of regrets you can have. Rascal flatts is the best band ever.

    I think this song means like they had a big fight and while he/she was leaving the house he/she died and never got to tell the other how they really felt about each other. But now they can't because he/she is dead such a depressing but wonderful song it makes me want to cry until I can't cry anymore. Anyway hes saying hell cry about sometimes and sometimes he pretends it never happened but he was so close to her and then she was gone and he never got to say I love you dx waaa hes says its hard to live with his regret and he would trade anything to turn the clock and really tell her how he felt. Um thank you for letting me post this comment lyrics mode! Rock on rascal flatts.

    This song. This song. This song. I heard it a thousand times and I swear god that I cry each time I hear it. Noticing that I don't have a boyfriend. But I'm in love with someone and I can't tell him. Simply cuz he loves my friend. I'm doing my best to get rid of this emotions. What hurts the most is that I can't ignore my feelings. Pfff. Just hard. Simply this song means to watch the one you love standing each day front of you and you are unable to tell him what does he mean to you. Watching him with another and that another is a close friend. God hard to deal with that.

    This song reminds me and two things. The first is the death of my father. When I was five I found my father dead. Dealing with that has been hard my entire life. My father and I were very close so this song has a very literal meaning to me. The second is a story with a guy. I liked this guy so much I honestly think I loved him. Well long story short we got super close and then he cheated on me. The song is one of the most meaningful songs I've ever heard.
