Colbie Caillat – Realize lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Take time to realize,
That your warmth is
Crashing down on in.
Take time to realize,
That I am on your si-i-i-de
Didn't I, didn't I tell you.

But I can't spell it out for you,
No, it's never gonna be that simple
But I can't spell it out for you

[Chorus:]
If you just realize what I've just realized,
Then we'd be perfect for each other
And we'll never find another
Just realized what I just realized
We'd never have to wonder if
We missed out on each other now.

[Verse 2:]
Take time to realize
Oh-oh I'm on your si-i-i-de
Didn't I, didn't I tell you.
Take time to realize
That this all can pass by
Didn't I didn't I tell you
[Refrain:]
But I can't spell it out for you,
No it's never gonna be that simple
But I can't spell it out for you.

[Chorus:]
If you just realized what I just realized
Then we'd be perfect for each other
And we'd never find another
Just realized what I've just realized
We'd never have to wonder if
We missed out on each other but.

[Verse 3:]
It's not that the same
No it's never the sa-a-ame
If you don't feel it too.
If you meet me half way
If you 'd meet me half way.
It could be the same for you.

[Chorus:]
If you just realize what I just realized
Then we'd be perfect for each other
And we'd never find another
Just realize what I just realized
We'd never have to wonder no-o-w

Just realize what I just realized

If you just realize what I just realized

Oh...

Missed out on each other now
Missed out on each other now
Missed out on each other now

Realize, realize
Realize, realize

    I interpret this song as a couple in love, much like everyone I know in relationships, where the love is deep but lop-sided a bit. One lover coming to the realization that she's decided to put her all in it and encourage her lover to do the same. She really wants him to take the same direction but is unwilling to force him to do so, that he has decide that on his own. The song describes the trust issues that are prevalent in relationships and all in all, this songs just cries that she's wanting him to realize how perfect, secure, and happy they could be if they equally put 100 percent into it.

    To me its about never giving up on what you want no matter how hard or long it takes. If your truly in love with that special person you won't ever give up on them until you get at least one chance. One person met realize that you are meant to be together rigth in the very begining and it may takes years for the other to even see what the other one thinks because you are too good of friends. You both may never have the same feelings for each other at the same time and you never get your chance. Just don't give up unless that iswhat your heart is telling you to do. This has happened to me bfore and every time I hear this song I think of what we could be and then realize what we aren't. =[

    The meaning to me. Hope that he will hear the words. Hear the beautiful voice, begging him to let love in and finally forgive. Finally feel love. No more judgment, no more. You can't break my spirit. Its my dreams you take. The song makes me hope that at any moment he will see truth, he will see my worth and love me like he should have all along. I am beautiful. I am a great friend. Waiting, wanting. But losing hope. Realize? Or regret?

    I love this song it makes me remember my ex and how he hasnt realize that I rly did loved him and that until now I still love him and I'm trying to let go of my past and move on. But I guess its hard to let go of someone that you rly love that you still think of them and hoping that he feels the sameway as I do now. I rly love you and I hope you realize that =/

    This song reminds me of when me and my ex were still together and it breaks my heart because we went through so much in the short time we were together. I know he still has something there for me because whenever we hang out, bc we are still friends, he gives me that look that he gave me when we first met that just makes my heart melt. It just reminds me of how much I put into the relationship and how little I recieved back. He lives two hours away from here for school during the week and is only back on weekends. I just wish he could realize there is this one girl who is still head over heals for him, and there is someone who still cares so deeply for him.
