One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And you're not something I deserve

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and make believe
And this seems real to me

[Chorus]
You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

I dream ahead to what I hope for
And I turn my back on loving you
How can this love be a good thing
AND NOT KNOW WHAT I'm goin' through

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and make believe
And this seems real to me


You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
You love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Just Let me goo...
Let me go

And no matter how hard I try
I can't escape these things inside I know
I knowww...
When all the pieces fall apart
You will be the only one who knows
Who knows

[Chorus]
You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know Who I am
So let me go
Just let me go

And you love me but you don't
You love me but you don't
You love me but you don't know who I am
And you love me but you don't
You love me but you don't
You love me but you don't know me

    To me, this song illustrates the predicament where a guy is never totally himself around a particular girl that he's in love with, and then the girl falls in love with this "alter-ego" of his... yet she doesn't really know who he is. He lives "two lives", the one when he's not with her and the one when he is with her. He wants to give up the charade but is torn because he doesn't think she'll love him for who he really is... so he asks her to "just let him go". This is such an amazing song that I think everyone in some way can relate to. I think we all have our walls we put up - I guess the question becomes if we can ever come out from behind them.

    A person is torn because he doesnt believe his significant other really loves him and knows him. He's torn between what is real (love that doesnt actually exist) and make belief (what he wants to believe but is not).

    ahh.. I'm in love with this song.

    Now that it's over between me and him, i just realized the real meaning of this song.
    I've told him pretty much everything, and he knows me more than anybody i know. But when it comes to what i'm really feeling.. he knows nothing about it. God, he means the world to me.. but i just can't keep feeding him with lies. I'm in love with him, but i've been hurt so many times that i'm scared..

    He loves me, but he doesn't know who i really am.
    he doesn't know the part of me that's scared to death :(

    this song is about how he is falling in love with her but he knows that he hasn't really been himself with her and he doesn't think that she will still love him.he wants to be with her but he knows that to do that, that he would have to tell her
