You're not sure that you love me
But you're not sure enough to let me go.
Baby it aint fair ya know
To just keep me hangin' round,
You say you don't wanna hurt me,
Don't wanna see my tears.
So why are you still standin' here
Just watchin' me drown?

And it's all right yeah I'll be fine don't worry bout' this heart of mine,
Just take your love and hit the road,
There's nothing you can do or say you're gonna break my heart anyway,
So just leave the pieces when you go.

Now you can drag out the heartache,
Baby you could make it quick,
Really get it over with
And just let me move on.

Don't concern yourself
With this mess you left for me,
I can clean it up you see
Just as long as you're gone.

And it's all right yeah I'll be fine don't worry bout' this heart of mine
Just take your love and hit the road,
There's nothing you can do or say you're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go.

You're not makin' up your mind
It's killin' me and wasting time.
I need so much more than that.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

And it's all right yeah I'll be fine don't worry bout' this heart of mine
Just take your love and hit the road,
There's nothing you can do or say you're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go.

Leave the pieces when you go, oh yeah,
Leave the pieces when you go,

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Leave the pieces when you go

    I think its about a crappy man who is trying to have his cake and eat it too. So he strings along the girlfriend while he's still on the prowl looking for something "better". She figures it out, and send him packing, and says it might hurt to lose you, but it would hurt more to lose my self respect.

    i think this song is about a relationship that didnt work but now the guy moved on and now realizes that he might kind of miss her and is trying to get back into the girls life. i think the girl still loves him although they broke up, and wants to be with him but knows that she has to move on because shes aware that hes just toying with her emotions. but she still loves him so much that she cant seem to let him go and shes struggling to get over him. and sometimes he still acts like he wants her, but sometimes he acts like he hates her, and the girl is just really confused and hurt from both this and the breakup. she wants to let go and get over him but its hard cause she still loves him and doesnt know how to stop.
