Life Goes On Lyrics

I felt this before now I feel it again
No matter how hard I try
This feeling won't end
So I pretend you're here by my side
Tonight on this lonely ride
Keep telling myself that

Life goes on while you're miles away
And I need you
Time rolls on as night steals the day
There's nothing I can do

You heal up my wounds
I tasted your tears
You spilled out your heart
So I let out my fears But one fear that I kept to myself
How I prayed that you'd love no one else
Like you're saying you love me

Life goes on while you're miles away
And I need you
Time rolls on as night steals the day
There's nothing I can do
If you only knew how much I miss you

When my mind plays these tricks on me
It shows me things I don't want to see
That's why I tell myself now
I keep telling myself now
Just take another piece of me

Life goes on while you're miles away
And I need you
Time rolls on as night steals the day
There's nothing I can do

Life goes on you're still miles away
And I need you

And this last mile I travel with you

Life Goes On Meanings & Interpretations

To me this song is very pertinent in a lot of respects at this very moment. It is a guy singing about someone that he's very much in love with that has moved on. Where he has not. Remembering where she sat not all that long ago, but tonight it's a lonely ride instead. It then turns darker and he's imagining her going on with her life while he's stuck in the past, all by himself. Every time he goes through this scenario it rips out another part of him so in essence she's taking a piece of him each time he goes through it in his mind again. The MOST emphatic line in the whole song is after the last, "and I need you". " And this last mile I travel with you", because he can't take it any longer. All his pieces are gone so he's imagining her beside him as can't stand the anguish, and ends it all, with her by his side in his mind at least.
