There it is, your name on my phone
I kept praying for it now I'll reap what I've sown 

I answered your message and a piece of me split. You wanted forgiveness, but I couldn't give it

As much as I wanted to my heart is still healing and I can't forgive something that still has me reeling

So we talked for a bit through the night and I'm not gonna lie, it felt so damn right.

There was a hurricane of emotions in my heart and once again you lit up the dark

My heart became light and the numbness depleted 
In one second flat my walls you defeated

Even in piece my heart you still control. Each tiny shard you once again stole.

But the goodbye is lurking in the shadows vindictively waiting to drag me to the gallows

A with the noose around my neck I won't make a sound
My final 'I love you' I'll keep to myself as it buries me in the ground.

Time to find a New Love who won't Break Your Heart. There is a Famous Song "When a Man Loves a Woman." Read the Lyrics and This is TRUE LOVE from a Man.

So gallows are the wooden structure which were used to hang criminal in the old days. The goodbye drags me to the gallows to hang me hence there being a noose around my neck. Basically what those two verses say is 'saying goodbye again will kill me'. I hope this helped.
