A romantic song about a broken heart. Very broken.

You can sing to the karaoke version here.

I guess now it's time for me to give up
I feel it's time
Got a picture of you beside me
Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup
Oh yeah
Got a fist of pure emotion
Got a head of shattered dreams
Gotta leave it, gotta leave it all behind now

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
I want you back for good

Unaware but underlined I figured out this story
No, no
It wasn't good
No, no
But in the corner of my mind I celebrated glory
But that was not to be
In the twist of separation you excelled at being free
Can't you find a little room inside for me?

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
I say I want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
I want you back for good

And we'll be together, this time is forever
We'll be fighting and forever we will be
So complete in our love
We will never be uncovered again

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
(I) say, I want you back for good

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it
I just want you back for good
Want you back, want you back, want you back for good
Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it
You'll be right and understood
I Want you back, I want you back
(I) say, I want you back for good

Oh yeah.
I guess now it's time that you came back for good

I GUESS= I suppose.

GIVE UP= Surrender.

(I) GOT A...= I’ve got a...

A PICTURE= A photograph.

LIPSTICK= A small waxy stick women use to paint their lips.

GOT A FIST OF PURE EMOTION= I have an emotion attack; I feel a very very strong emotion.

GOT A HEAD OF SHATTERED DREAMS= I have my head full of broken dreams. Shattered = broken into little pieces; completely destroyed.

(I) GOTTA= I’ve got to; I have to.

GOTTA LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND= I have to forget about everything and start a new life.

WHATEVER= Anything; it doesn’t matter what.

I DIDN’T MEAN IT= It wasn’t my intention; I didn’t want to.

WANT YOU= Phonetics: T+Y= /ch/, so this sounds: "wonchoo" (/wɒntʃu:/).

WHENEVER= Any time; every time.

THAT WAS NOT TO BE= Destiny didn’t want it to happen.

This couple broke up (separated), but he could never get over it (forget about her). They’re not together, but he still has her photo beside him and her lipstick mark on her last coffee cup (he didn't want to clean it because he wanted to have a memory of her), because he never wanted to forget her. She, on the other hand, seems to have got over it and has a new life ("you excelled at being free").

Pride kept him away, but after a long time, now he is ready to give up and swallow his pride ("now it's time for me to give up") and deeply regrets everything that happened. All he wants now is to be together again. He’s not very sure if it was his mistake or hers, but all the same he wants to make up for anything wrong he made. He is willing to do anything to have her back, and this time, forever (for good

).
