Critical Reception Edit

The newspaper The Sun wrote about the song: "There is a serious piano introduction into this heartfelt number with ethereal backing vocals. She sings: “Something’s gotta change but I know it won’t. No reason to stay, it’s a good reason to go.” At another point she adds: “I think I’m breaking right now.”

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Loving you, I thought I couldn't get no higher
Your November rain could set night on fire, night on fire
But we could only burn so long
Counterfeit emotions only run skin deep
Know you're lying when you're lying next to me, next to me

[Pre-Chorus]
How did we get so far gone?
I should know by now, you should know by now
We should know by now

[Chorus]
Something's gotta give, something's gotta break
But all I do is give, and all you do is take
Something’s gotta change, but I know it won’t
No reason to stay is a good reason to go
Is a good reason to go

[Verse 2]
I have never heard a silence quite so loud
I walk in the room and you don't make a sound, make a sound
You're good at making me feel small
If it doesn't hurt me, why do I still cry?
If it didn't kill me, then I'm half alive, half alive

[Pre-Chorus]
How did we get so far gone?
I should know by now, you should know by now
We should know by now

[Chorus]
Something's gotta give, something's gotta break
But all I do is give, and all you do is take
Something’s gotta change, but I know it won’t
No reason to stay is a good reason to go
Is a good reason to go

[Bridge]
I should know by now, you should know by now
I think I'm breaking right now
I should know by now, you should know by now
I think I'm breaking right now

[Chorus]
Something's gotta give, something's gotta break
But all I do is give, and all you do is take
Something’s gotta change, but I know it won’t
No reason to stay is a good reason to go
Is a good reason to go
Something's gotta give
