Lyrics Trip: "White Flag" by Dido

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you
I'll tell you that
But if I didn't say it
Well, I still would have felt it
Where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

Well, I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and destruction
To come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you
Can't talk to me again

And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
Then I'm sure that that makes sense

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet, as I'm sure we will
All that I was then, will be there still
I'll let it pass, and hold my tongue
And you will think that I've moved on

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

There are so many things I have to talk to you about.

There are so many things that I want to tell you.

You may not be a believer of the idea that whenever you give a part of yourself to someone, be that person a friend or something more, that part of you remains with that person no matter what happens. We were living in another place and another time when I gave a part of me to you. Whatever happens in a world that isn't real will most likely not belong to a world that is harsh with reality.
Unfortunately, I can never take that part back and you can never give it back. And, as opposed to what the song says, I've given up. I've surrendered.

This is my white flag to you. Kilala naman nating lahat kung sino talaga ang mahal mo. (Sige! Deny mo pa!)

You don't have to keep your promise. I won't hold you to it.
