Breaking up with someone is not easy, especially if you’ve been together for a long time. You’ll remember the moments you shared together, and those things are difficult to forget. Sometimes you just want to give them a call and see how are they or perhaps beg them to come back because somehow they were a part of your world before and letting them go is like throwing half of yourself away.
The Chart Performance
Collin Raye’s last song to enter the top 10 of the US Billboard Charts was “Couldn’t Last a Moment” in 2000. “Couldn’t Last a Moment” peaked at No. 3 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2000 and remaining on the charts for a total of 25 weeks. Furthermore, the song entered the US Billboard Hot 100 charts and peaked at No. 43 where the song spent a total of 20 weeks. The song is part of his album Tracks which peaked at No. 9 on the US Billboard Top Country Albums in 2000. It was written by Danny Wells and Jeffrey Steels.

What the Song is All About
It’s about a man who thought that he could live without the person he loves. After breaking up with her, he realized that he cannot live without her love. He remembered all the things he said to her that he didn’t mean and he wanted to take it back, but he doesn’t know what to do now. He misses her every moment and wished that he could have her back.
Sometimes we only realize the importance of someone when they are not there anymore. Therefore, for you not to end up like the man in the song, do not take the person you love and the person who loves you for granted.
Collin Raye, couldn't last a moment
