Lyric help?

I don't know how welcome this type of post is, but are any of you really good at deciphering lyrics?

I've been listening to (and loving) this song for a couple months now, but it's driving me crazy that I have no idea what it's about.






I labeled which parts are the guy singing and which parts are her singing just to make it a little easier...


Leann Rimes & Ronan Keating - Last Thing On My Mind


(He:)
Four o’clock in the morning
My mind’s filled with a thousand thoughts of you
How you left without warning
But looking back I’m sure you tried to talk it through

(She:)
Now I see it so clearly
We're together but living separate lives

(He:)
So, I wanna tell you I’m sorry
Baby, I can’t find the words
But, if I could
Then you know I would, yeah,

(Both:)
No, I won’t let go,
Know what we can be
I wont watch my life crashing down on me
Guess I had it all right there before my eyes, yeah,
Girl I’m sorry now we're the last thing on my mind

(She:)
You carried me like a river
How far we've come still surprises me

(He:
Now, I look in the mirror (look in the mirror)
Staring back as the man I used to be with you
How I longed for you

(Both:)
No, I won't let go
Know what we can be
I wont watch my life crashing down on me
Guess I had it all right there before my eyes, yeah
ooh, I’m sorry now we're the last thing on my mind

Girl I'm sorry I was wrong

Could've been there, should have been so strong

So, I'm sorry

Oh
No, I won’t let go
Know what we can be
I wont watch my life crashing down on me
guess I had it all right there before my eyes, yeah
Girl I’m sorry now (ooh, I'm sorry) we're the last thing on my mind (on my mind)

I won't watch my life crashing down on me
Guess I had it all right there before my eyes, yeah
Girl I’m sorry now we're the last thing on my mind
(On my mind) (on my mind)





Are they together ("we're together but living separate lives," "no I won't let go...") or not ("how you left without warning.." "I had it all...")?

Is he thinking about her ("my mind's filled with a thousand thoughts of you") or not ("we're the last thing on my mind")?

And what does "together but living separate lives" mean anyway?

And when she says "I won't watch my life crashing down on me" does she mean it was crashing down on her when she was with him, or it would crash down on her without him?

And if they are together, then why is the main theme of the song "we're the last thing on my mind"?

I've been hesitant to post this question but I hope I get at least a lttle feedback (even if only guesses) because it's been driving me insane! Thanks =)
