I'm staring at the glass in front of me,
Is it half empty or I've ruined all you've given me
?
I know I've been selfish,
I know I've been foolish,
But look through that
And you will see,

I'll do better, I know,
Baby, I can do better.

If you leave me tonight, I'll wake up alone,
Don't tell me I will make it on my own,
Don't leave me tonight,
This heart of stone will sing till it dies
If you leave me tonight.

Sometimes I stare at you while you are sleeping,
I listen to your breathing,
Amazed how I somehow managed to
Sweep you off to your feet girl,
Your perfect little feet girl
I took for granted what you do.

But I'll do better, I know
Baby, I can do better.

If you leave me tonight, I'll wake up alone,
Don't tell me I will make it on my own,
Don't leave me tonight,
This heart of stone will sing till it dies
If you leave me tonight.

And don't you know my heart is pumpin', oh,
It's putting up the fight,
And I've got this feeling,
That everything's alright,
And don't you see,
I'm not the only one for you
But you're the only one for me.

If you leave me tonight,
I'll wake up alone,

(Stay) If you leave me tonight,
(Close) I'll wake up alone,
(Don't) don't tell me I will
(Go) make it on my own,
(Stay) don't leave me tonight,
(Close) this heart of stone
(Don't) will sing till it dies
(Go) if you leave me tonight.
Don't leave me tonight

    I think this song is about a guy madly inlove with a girl.
    But the guy took the girl for granted at first and when the girl left, the guy realized how he truly loves her and was saying, "I can do better." It means he wanted a second chance with the girl.
    And the guy is saying in, "Don't tell me I can make it on my own," the guy can't go on with out the girl even though the girl said he can.
