Some things are better off forgotten
We bury them in places that we really only visit by ourself
Oh and you were a version like no other
Oh they never tell you what to do when all you see is gone
What's the sense in anything when what they say is wrong?

Oh what do you wanna hear?
Do you wanna know how many times
I've torn myself apart 'cause you're not here?
Oh why do you wanna know?
Does it make you feel alive?
I had to die to finally let you go

Stop me... I find myself believing
Oh, a story gets rewritten so blasphemy's permitted once again
Oh, and you were so perfectly imperfect
Oh, they never tell you what to do when all you have are lies
What's the sense in anything? It's just one more goodbye

Oh what do you wanna hear?
Do you wanna know how many times
I've torn myself apart 'cause you're not here?
Oh why do you wanna know?
Does it make you feel alive?
I had to die to finally let you go
Oh yeah

Oh what do you wanna hear?
Do you wanna know how many times
I've torn myself apart 'cause you're not here?
Oh why do you wanna know?
Does it make you feel alive?
I had to die to finally let you go
Oh, whoa-oh...
Finally let you go...

    He lost someone he loved and he's given up on life and love.. He's disappointed because he wanted someone who could help him understand what to do in his situation but "no one tells you what to do when all you see is gone". He's alone.

    Losing someone you have loved for so long and suddenly coming to the realization you have to let them go and continue your life.

    I lost my fiance in a car accident... I feel like the only way to let her go is if i die...

    Losing someone who you love with all your heart and having to watch them walk away while you shatter into a million pieces as they carry on with their life.
