Every night I remember that evening
The way you looked when you said you were leaving
The way you cried as you turned to walk away
The cruel words and the false accusations
The mean looks and the same old frustrations
I never thought that we'd throw it all away
But we threw it all away.

And I'm a little bit lost without you
And I'm a bloody big mess inside
And I'm a little bit lost without you
This aint a love song this is goodbye (oooooh)
This aint a love song this is goodbye (ooooh)

I've been lost, I've been losing
I've been tired, I'm all hurt and confusion
I've been mad, I'm the kind of man that I'm not
I'm going down, I'll be coming back fighting
I may be scared and a little bit frightened
But I'll be back, I'll be coming back to life
I'll be coming back to life

And I'm a little bit lost without you
And I'm a bloody big mess inside
And I'm a little bit lost without you
This aint a love song this is goodbye (oooooh)
This aint a love song this is goodbye (ooooh)

Whoooo
And you can try (you can try)
And you can try but you'll never keep me down
And you can try (you can try)
And you can try but you'll never keep me down

La la la la la la la
(I wont be lost, I wont be down)

And I'm a little bit lost without you
And I'm a bloody big mess inside
Yeah I'm a little bit lost without you
This ain't a love song this is goodbye

It's alright (It's alright) cause you can try but you'll never keep me down
It's alright (It's alright) I may be lost but you'll never keep me down
You can try (you can try) you can try but you'll never keep me down
You can't try (you can try) I know I'm lost but I'm waiting to be found
You'll never keep me down
You'll never keep me down
Never keep me down

    It's about realizing that letting go is the better road to take rather than trying to hang on to something that just isn't there anymore. It's about closure. Letting go even if it hurts and feels like the wrong thing to do but you know there's a bigger part of you that knows it's the right thing. It's about knowing that there is something better out there for you but you just got to keep strong.

    This song brings tears every time its played as it almost re-inacts the time my partner left me !!! We together again now and love each other more than ever ! Its amazing how u can listen to a song one day and its just a great song, then the next it holds such meaning !
