Nice song!

I think that they are saying that he has hurt someone, and she is leaving. But that he really didn't want to hurt her, and has decided that she is important enough for him to reconsider things that he always thought were true about himself. She's not coming back, but he now realizes that he never wants to do that to anyone again. So he has decided to change something in his personality - in the way he *is*, the way he has always seen himself, something that he always believed to be true. He will change because she has shown him that the way that he was, led to pain (for both of them), and he doesn't want to cause that pain again. So she has taught him a valuable lesson, and he is growing as a result.

I think the song talks about how we do have the power and ability to change who we are if we decide that we don't like who we have become. That we can choose to be different, and not repeat the things we have done in the past. It is also a sad reminder that often we don't realize that we need to change ourselves until we have hurt someone who is important to us. But even if they were hurt badly enough to leave, we still can, and should, change ourselves for *our* future and the future of others we will know.

Analyzing songs is not something that I do very often, and this is the first time that seeing lyrics was enough to motivate me to find a way to hear the song. I like the message a lot.

Thanks for introducing me to this song!
