  • Heather from Halifax, NsI think it's about a guy whose girlfriend breaks up with him. He tried to make her happy but he couldn't figuare out how. He didnt't know how to love her more. He asks her not to go but she's made up her mind and he doesn't know what to say or what he'll do when she's gone. That's just my interpretation of the song, it's probably wrong but whatever. Awsome band by the way.
  • Louise from London, United KingdomThis song is obviously about the lead singer and his girlfriend breaking up, and how he cant bear to see her go her own way. Great band, coming from the uk i guess we have heard alot more about them than u fellow americans?
