A Fine Frenzy – Almost Lover lyrics

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images
You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

[Chorus:]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images
And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, ever forget
These images

Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

[Chorus:]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine

Did I make it that
Easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?

[Chorus:]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

    It tells about loving someone who doesn't love you back. You want to move on but you don't want to go to waste your love for him. It does hurt. And anyone who had been in this situation can clearly relate, but you got to know that God has a plan for you. You may not know it yet. But it will come to place, like everything in your life did. And even how hard you fall for someone if he is not your destiny, it can never work.

    You know when you meet that one person and you think that nothing exists with out them and they tell you all this stuff and you just can't help but believe them. But then some one else pops up in thier life and you just sit in your room and cry for ever. Well almost lover is when you finally relise that the perosn doesn't have that hold on you anymore and you can break free or at lease to me that's what it means.

    This song really hits the "I love you but you don't love me" relationship. Its really strong when the song describes her fantasies or memories then says "images" meaning its not real, or its pointless to think about it when it won't happen. The song takes it to level deeper by showing that she liked him, he doesn't, she's okay with it, but the guy continues to hurt her. She wonders, "I never wanted you to be unhappy, thought you'd want the same for me" It takes a very deep level of the break-up and shows the pain. It makes me a cry alot too.

    I'm so touched by this song. Not that I'm being martyr or anything. I just know the feeling of being so attached with the person you can't be with. The feeling of having an affair with someone who can't be yours. Like what the song said almost lover. You haven't got in any commitment. And he is not leaving you for another. Its just that you and him can't be together because of some circumstances you can't and can never be resolved. Left with no choice. Because you don't want to hurt each other anymore. Because of the fact that both of you can only grow closer together but can never be together. You choose to let go. Giving each other time and chance to find another who can be their own. Though the feeling is still there. You choose to let go. And then move on. 'coz there is no point in hoping for something or even holding on to something if having it is uncertain. You might as well miss the right person for you for holding on to the wrong one.

    Its that moment you realize it was a fantasy. A dream. A game of pretend. The good seems so good only because the bad was so bad. So mercurial. Its that moment that you realize your heart was shredded, and you didn't get all the pieces back. When you have lost your other half, your reason for joy, your future. That moment when you realize you can't have them because they aren't right. They're just "almost" and nothing more.
