There's a dress in the closet, that I just can't throw away
I know it might sound crazy, but I haven't changed your pillowcase
A heart half full, or half empty
Is half gone either way, with you gone
What went wrong?
Maybe the hardest...

    Don't Wanna Write This Song by Brett Young, he has nice country music voice. The latest comment, I agree about your thought on this song and this song is very powerful regardless the meaning.

    However, it said on songfacts that it was about his lover.

    About your question, is it more? I think when he said, "don't wanna write this song" it means he can't love again and continue his life without her. It seems his song or life was stopped or in a halt because she has passed on. It's like, she was his song. You are correct, a breakup could easily be a symbolic similar to a passing on of a loved one.

    On the surface song appears to be about a girl and how breaking up is harder when neither one cheats, or lies. It’s harder to just admit that they were just not right.

    To me though, this song may be about more. The one lyric that sticks with me is “I left a rose on your headstone
    I never quite know what to say”

    Now this could easily be symbolic for a breakup being similar to a death, but I wonder is it more?

    Just like “sober Saturday night” we may have to wait for the music video to realize what the song is really about, but I personally believe he is writing about literally losing his love, as in she has passed on. The way this line is emphasized by Brett as he sings it quieter and then makes the next line louder.

    I think this song about about the girl he loved passing on.

    Just my two cents. Feel free to disagree.

    This song is very powerful regardless of meaning. Hold on tight to your loved ones...
