The Story Behind the Song
[/op_liveeditor_element]
[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” top_margin=”5″]When people fall out of love, there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Once feelings are gone, it’s over. You can’t force someone to love you and it can be especially difficult to accept that when you still love them. You can be sweet and attentive, and try to show them how much they mean to you, but none of that will make them have feelings that they just don’t have anymore. The most logical thing to do is to walk away and move on.

But that’s easier said than done since you’re not dealing with logic at this point. A lot of people will stay in an unhappy relationship for the comfort they get just by being with someone. The alternative, throwing everything away and starting all over again, sometimes after many years of devoting your life to someone else, can seem like the harder choice, no matter how loveless a relationship may be. At this point, according to Freudian psychology, the desire to avoid the pain of moving on alone is stronger than the desire to find true happiness. Instead of accepting the reality and moving on, we spend time making attempts to “fix” the relationship. Once someone starts asking themselves the same questions explored in this song, there’s a good chance the relationship is over.[/text_block][/op_liveeditor_element]

Lyrics

[op_liveeditor_element][text_block]

I can tell you’ve been thinkin’
It’s clear by the look in your eye
Piece by piece I’ve been breakin’
From watchin’ you cast me aside

Don’t go tryin’ to hide it
You can’t cover up how you feel
No matter how much you deny it
The distance between us is real
So why can’t we just walk away
Why do we keep holding on
And why do we keep trying to save
Something we both know is gone
I need you to tell me
Please won’t you tell me…why?
When your arms are around me
I feel like I’m wasting your time
I’ve gone from driving you crazy
To not even crossing your mind

We can’t keep trying to fight it
By passing the blame all around
We can try all we want to disguise it
But the wall that we built won’t come down

CHORUS
I remember your eyes used to shine
The moment I’d walk through the door
Some feelings can change over time
And now your eyes they don’t shine anymore
So why can’t we just walk away
Why do we keep holding on
And why do we keep trying to save
Something we both know is gone

CHORUS
