Once again you're home alone
Tears running from your eyes
And I'm on the outside
Knowing that you're all I want
But I can't do anything
I'm so helpless baby

Everyday same old things
So you're still feelin' pain
Never had real love before
And it ain't her fault

She knows better but
She can't help it
Wanna tell her
But would that be selfish
How do you heal
A heart that can't feel, it's broken
His love is all she knows, all she knows, all she knows
His love is all she knows, all she knows, all she knows

You've been livin' this way so long
You don't know the difference
And it's killing me
Cause you can have so much more
I'm the one your looking for
But you close your eyes on me
So you still can't see

Everyday same old things
So you're still feelin' pain
Never had real love before
And it ain't her fault

She knows better but
She can't help it
Wanna tell her
But would that be selfish
How do you heal
A heart that can't feel, it's broken
His love is all she knows, all she knows, all she knows
His love is all she knows, all she knows, all she knows

All she knows is the pain
In the corner of an empty home
She's still comfortable
I want her to know
It can be better than this
I can't pretend
Wish we were more than friends

Everyday same old things
So you're still feelin' pain
Never had real love before
And it ain't her fault

She knows better but
She can't help it
Wanna tell her
But would that be selfish
How do you heal
A heart that can't feel, it's broken
His love is all she knows, all she knows, all she knows
His love is all she knows, all she knows, all she knows

    I'll say the obvious - this is a song about unrequited or unobtainable love. But it clearly goes beyond just the "I love her, she doesn't love me" part. With the lines "Never had real love before," and "His love is all she knows," it seems that she has a boyfriend, but he doesn't really love her. Or at least not as much as Bruno Mars does.

    Personally, I think it sounds like her boyfriend is the kind who says he "loves" her, then abuses her and makes her become so dependent on him that she can't leave him. I think the lines "Once again you're home alone, Tears running from your eyes," "Everyday, same old things, So you're still feelin' pain," and especially "All she knows is the pain, In the corner of an empty home, She's still comfortable," support this.

    But then again, it could be that she has a father who is abusive, is never home, and is possibly a drunk. The lines about the empty home seem to support this. Though Bruno saying "But would that be selfish?" tilt it more towards the boyfriend theory.

    Either way, this is such a beautiful song, one of my favourites. Bruno Mars is such a great singer, has wonderful songs, and I hope he'll keep writing and singing great songs like this.

    In this song it tells how confusing the girl is. She knows she's having so much pain continuing her existing love but then she tried to ignore the other one who loves her. It is all because she loves her man and was hoping him to change. This song really related to me as im still live in my boyfriend's shadow although i knew he's not really loves me. The reason why i cant leave him is because he's my first true love. Yes,it totally killing me but his love is all i know

    Meaning of this song is wanting somebody and knowing that she can be so much better off with him but she cant let go of her boyfriend because he was her first true love. Honestly , no one cant forget their first true love .

    this song really related to me in my once relationships. I had only been in really bad realtionships never ment. My Bestfriend, was male and he actually really liked me and was quite jealous and upset by this and that he wouldnt have me, he wanted to show me the truth and what love was about, i didnt know love any diffrent then the reationships i had. i was oftern upset and he knew but i would deny it all the time. Im in a faithful close relationship now, not with my bestfriend however. he still wants me, but i want him to just be my friend.
