I feel more awesome than an awesome opossum
Stating how the singer feels is redundant at this point, you know how the singer feels just by reading these lyrics, but I want to highlight these specific lyrics. "I feel more awesome than an Awesome Possum." For those of you who don't know, Awesome Possum was a game for the Sega Genesis. Why they're referencing it here. Or at all. Is beyond me, because the game, itself, wasn't even that good to start with.

Never heard a house sound, so loud with memories
Where there used to be a happy home
In the house on the corner of lonely and gone
In this segment, he talks about how the house is so quiet that he can hear the happy memories of the love he once had.

Never saw the flood come, even though I felt the rain
This hints at something I will talk about in the next verse: his shortsightedness of his relationship with his love.

Coulda heard a tear drop, coulda heard a heart break
Not only does this line represent the silence of the house the singer is now in, it is a reference to another tune, You Could Have Heard A Heart Break by Johnny Lee. http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/j/johnny_lee/you_couldve_heard_a_heart_break.html

If she talked about leavin, I wasn't listenin
If she showed me a sign, well I never saw
Did she stop believin, did I stop givin
Can't put my finger on what went wrong
Now the quietest noise I'm told
Is the sound of letting go
The singer is stating that he couldn't see any of the signs of her love for him fading, if she even gave any signs at all. It shows desperation in the sense that he does not know what he did or even what's going on. She could've given up on him long before hand, and he never would have figured that out. But, then again, when I went through a very recent break-up, I knew it was nearing the end. But I still fought for her, and I'm proud that I did.
