So much I thought I'd have to say
Though I try to speak, my meaning strays.
We can't avoid the facts that brought us here.
I've come to say goodbye.

The lies I try to tell with my own eyes;
An act of pride, a willful compromise.
Please understand how torn I am
When I walk away from here.

I lament the moments we won't share.
If I am far too sentimental, I apologize.
Please understand this is who I am,
And who I'll still be when I've walked away from here.

You know I'm not unkind
When I say in the future,
The past is just the past.

No going back,
No change of heart
But this is now,
Time will not differ.

My thoughts betray, so easily confess
How long I'll wait here after you have gone.
Nothing ends but I don't believe that now
Please don't walk away from here.

And when alone and I remember days.
Nothing will change a single fact of who you were to me
Oh, come what may, forever to the end
I find it so hard to let you go.

And hush now, let it go now
There's no need for sad goodbyes.
Hush now, let it go now
I know it's time to go.
Time to let this fall from my hands.

    Dit lied heb ik gekregen van m,n neef
    We zijn stapel verliefd op elkaar sinds we ons hebben leren kennen naar 31 jaar.
    We hebben elkaar moeten los laten omdat we partners hebben,maar wie weet wat de toekomst brengt.
    Echt zo een mooi nummer dit en zo toepasselijk krijg er tranen van in m,n ogen en doet me weer iedere keer pijn als ik dit nummer luister.
    Lieve neef i love you 4 -ever en de liefde voor jou zullen er altijd zijn en blijven.

    This song isn't just about a relationship between two people; the relations could be between anything: a man and his country, two lovers, two pieces of land; anything at all. This song gives a sense of betrayal, and longing for the past. Vnv wants us to think of how things used to be, and to long for that, rather than think of now, and what went wrong.

    This song to me says that when we have to move on from a relationship that we still love the one we have to let go of and yet it is so hard to do and sometimes we have to compromise what we want to be with them until we cant anymore and our pride over loving them makes it hard to walk away and yet we plead to them to not walk away and also i feel as though maybe also some of the lines are what the other person might say and yet we come to the realization that we have to let go of what we held with them
