There's some things we don't talk about
Rather do without
And just hold the smile
Falling in and out of love
Same damn problem
Together all the while

You can never say never
Why we don't know when
Time and time again
Younger now than we were before

Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go
[X2]

Picture you're the queen of everything
As far as the eye can see
Under your command
I will be your guardian
When all is crumbling
Steady your hands

You can never say never
Why we don't know when
Time, time and time again
Younger now then we were before

Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go
[X2]

We're pulling apart and coming together again and again
We're growing apart but we pull it together, pull it together, together again

Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go
[X4]

    I broke up with my ex.love but we never talked about it personally, because there are somethings we dont talk about. We never talked about any of our problems, we never wanted to look weak or dumb just because we had a problem with the other one'S behaviour.
    On the one hand, we never spoke about the things that disturbed us.
    And on the other hand we never admitted how important he's to me or how important i'm to him.
    We better did without and hold the smile, we just kept our facades straight. I never wanted him to discover that he is my weakness.
    Time by time we kept in and out of love, we always found our ways back to each other. But at least we fell out of love.
    We were ashamed and proud of the fact that we've been together all the while. Because I'm ashamed that I'm still addicted to him although we're not together anymore. And i'm proud of being together with him, because i picture him as the king of truely everything.
    I beg him to not let go of me, because you can never say never, u never know if we may fit to each other or not, Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day.
    Because we're younger and more naive than before, we ignore what have happened and what we already have been trough and start over again.

    We dont talk about some dumb shit we have done.
    Never say never... Shit happens and you can not know what the future will be. Closer than ever riding this roller coaster of life together... One minute or a bad year even falling apart but we pull it together again and again. Not to say never because as soon as you do its almost fate that the same reason you fell apart the doors will open for you to make the same mistake you said you would never do again. The queen/king of everything... Loved with all my heart you are my everything so please never say never... Dont let me go!!! I can not promise you that things will never happen again but I can promise I dont want to ever hurt you or do you wrong again so... Dont let me go.

    Not sure if this makes since to anyone... trying to write what it means to me... I can say my husband and I have been married 10 years and it feels like we are younger than weve ever been... learned a lot of things and still learning... Making it in this crazy world is hard but we havnt let go...

    Sometimes we're tired of fighting. We'd rather have peace than struggle for a deeper connection. Because we don't take the time or effort, we lose that closeness, and before you know it, we've drifted apart, and it comes as a shock one day to wake up and realize you don't know the person next to you. Then, you decide. Do you take a leap and cross that gap with the person you want the most, or is it too late for you? Because real love means you keep connecting, even after drifting away. You keep trying. You keep fighting for the one person you can let in to every place in your heart. So even when your world seems to be crumbling, you take the step. You walk toward the only person you've ever really loved, you take a chance, and you find that this soul is the one you were meant to love, because they step toward you, too. And you never again want to take for granted this beautiful person who is your everything.

    Relationships take commitment. Through every phase you go through, whether stormy or peaceful, connected or distant, underneath is the solid truth that you will keep fighting. You're not going anywhere, no matter what. You're saying..."I'm here for you, no matter what. I'll be what you need. I'll love you through anything. Whatever you let go of in your life, don't let it be me, because what we have can conquer anything."

    Wow. Explains me , just like broken. To me it means that for every person theres that someone that you cant let go. And thats the position that im in right now. I cant stop but love this kid. Its kinda like you cant forget about them or you cant get over them , or all you do is think of them , and you just cant get them out of your mind no matter how hard you try because thats whats happening to me. And like this song also means that, you never want them to let you go like to break up with you or forget about you. Like to lose you. For every person theres that somone, and youll know when there that someone when they stay with you and you dont break up every five seconds , and he|she doesnt break your heart, but this song explains my life. And thats why im in love with it , because i always say its so hard to explain why im always upset or what my life is like but this song did it perfectly, im in love. Noone ever give up okay, because youll get your chance , wait as long as you need to , just like i did for this guy, but i screwed it all up , and im back to waiting, but dont screw it up like me , do your best, try to be perfect, but dont forget dont be to perfect, becuase sometimes that can mess up things, and remember everyone deserves a second chance, except cheaters, and cheaters will always be cheaters no matter what, so never cheat, try not to lie, do your best, guys stay stronggg, youll get your chance.

    Falling in love with someone else...falling out of love with my husband...but then back in love with him again...

    There's so many things he just won't talk about..doesn't care.

    Never say Never

    I always said that will Never happen to me.

    I always said I will NEVER do that (Cheat).

    I always said someone close to me would NEVER die.

    I said never way too many times.
