I'm stuck with writing songs
Just to forget
What they really were about
And these words are bringing me so deeply insane
That I don't think I can take my way out

I couldn't breathe through it
Like I need to and the words don't mean a thing

So I'll sing this song to you
For the last time
And my heart is torn in two
Thinking of days spent without you
And there is nothing left to prove

I'm counting all the things I could have done
To make you see
That I wanted us to be what I go to sleep and dream of
I want you to know that I'd die for you
I'd die for you

I couldn't breathe through it
Like I need to and the words don't mean a thing

So I'll sing this song to you
For the last time
And my heart is torn in two
Thinking of the days spent without you
And there's nothing left to prove

And if you are alone
Make sure you're not lonely
'Cause if you are, I blame myself
For never being home
I know I'm not the only one
Who will treat you like they should
Like you deserve

I'm stuck with writing songs
Just to forget

So I'll sing this song to you
For the last time
And my heart is torn in two
Thinking of the days spent without you
And there's nothing left to prove

    It means that, two people were inlove but things changed one of them wanted to leave so he left. This same person noticed that she can't stop thinking abouthim. So she's asking for one more chance, but also she knows that his heart is broken and she's not the only one who can treat him like he deserves. Sh'es trying to forget him but she can't, its true love. Her heart is torn in two thinking of days spent without him. Pure love.

    He was trapped inside his great sense of love to her, he has done many thing to forget her because there's maybe someone who will treat her better than him. Writing songs, its words which reflects his heart. He was struggling to make herself fulfill his dream before, but he realized that he must not be selfish. Sacrificing his own sense of love, in the end he only wished that she won't be lonely. Without him beside her (maybe that's the meaning of this, "i want you to know that i would die for you... ").

    The singer feels alone - their love is gone and is moving on - they want to prove to this person how much that they love them to get them back - the singer is stuck writing songs, waiting for their love to realize how much they love this person that they are singing this song to. The person singing is giving up all the love now because the person just doesn't care anymore.

    A girl showed me this song. We had something together even though we were never in a relationship because of her religion it always felt like we were. We were insepperable for a while. Then she realised that what we were wasn't quite within the constraints of her religion and we had to return to being friends. It broke my heart and even though I've promised that i'll never leave her I still feel as though I've lost her. We're still good friends and she showed me her book of thoughts and feelings. She's written a lot of songs in there. Each one about a moment she's shared with someone, I'm not ashamed to say my name was at the top of most of them. I'll always love you baby xx.

    I really love this song. This song tells about sumone who left the one she really love with no exact reason. And now the girl is stuck in writing songs just to forget how it hurts to leave the one you really love. We will never know how much they really mean to us unless they are gone. To the one I love this song is for you I'm sorry for causing you such pain. I blame myself for the lonliness you are in now. You deserve sumone better.
