I love this place
But it's haunted without you
My tired heart
Is beating so slow
Our hearts sing less
Than we wanted
We wanted
Our hearts sing 'cause
We do not know
We do not know

To light the night
To help us grow
To help us grow
It is not said
I always know

You can catch me
Don't you run
Don't you run
If you live another day
In this happy little house
The fire's here to stay

To light the night
To help us grow
To help us grow
It is not said
I always know

Please don't make a fuss
It won't go away
The wonder of it all
The wonder that I made
I am here to stay

I am here to stay

Stay

    The heart empties when the one it loves goes, but like an empty house kindled by fire, love stays... Maybe to hope, maybe to hold on.

    She misses him and wants him right by her side and cant stand the thought of him being away for just one second but he is gone and the spark that was there between them is gone and it scares her that she lots him when he was always right there with her and as shewas going through her life when he was gone he never gave up hope thinking that he wasn`t gonna get her back but in the end they met again and started their life again.

    I wish they showed us a scene, in the movie dear john, savannah and john back together as lovers... Even if it ruins the ending because it was meant to be left for interpretation, still makes the viewers happier to realise the two lovers they've been cheering for made it in the end. :( hmmm though in my mind they are together. Forever and always! X

    She loved where they were at in their relationship but now she feels so lonely with him away and she realises that they both wanted their love to be stronger and better than it has turned out to be. Their hearts didn’t love the way they wanted/ the way they really thought it would. She didn’t know why it had to turn out this way but then she realised they were lessons in love and to help them grow a stronger bond and better love. No one had to tell her, she just knew it. She’s saying to the guy that he can get her love back and don’t give up on her. Also if they survive through this difficulty in their relationship (whatever relationship they have now) their chemistry won’t fade and it is staying to help their love grow. No need to fuss because it won’t change what has happened between them but in the end she has thought about it and is going to make it work out between the two of them, to be in love again or friends…. Two lovers loved each other and experienced difficulty so they went their separate ways, even though they didn’t make it through, they were there for each other.

    Its meanings; two lovers loved each other deeply and still are, couldn't be together because of the haunted past/deeds/choices they made. They have grown up, and they have learnt the hard way to love... To let go but also stand by each other.
