In the course of lamenting over the sadness brought on by the breakup, Lowry accuses his former lover of lying to him from the beginning of the relationship. He also accuses her of playing with his emotion and just using him. But interestingly, despite all the pain she’s brought into his life, Lowry still loves her. He hopes that someday she’d also ends love him in return because she means the world to him.

During the song, Lowry also reveals how he often “felt inadequate” because he was poor and she came from a rich family. It’s not really clear if he’s trying to say their different financial backgrounds also played a role in messing up the relationship.

That being said, what is crystal clear is that her lies and games killed their relationship. Lowry now finds himself alone yet surrounded by misery. He desperately wants to move on. However, he just can’t seem to get her out of his head. If only he could do that, then he could move on and find some happiness in life.
