    He's singing about an old love of his that he really cared about. He will never forget her, but he can't go back because it is too hard for him. No one around him really knows what is going on or what the future will bring. They just live in the moment hoping that despite mistakes they make they will be forgiven. He's trying to move on with his life, but he still thinks of her. It seems he wishes things could be different and that he wants her to know that he will still be here for her if she needs him.
