My song is love
Love to the loveless shown
And it goes on
You don't have to be alone

Your heavy heart
Is made of stone
And it's so hard to see clearly
You don't have to be on your own
You don't have to be on your own

And I'm not gonna take it back
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
You're the target that I'm aiming at
Got to get that message home

My song is love
My song is love, unknown
But I'm on fire for you, clearly
You don't have to be alone
You don't have to be on your own

And I'm not gonna take it back
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
You're the target that I'm aiming at
And I'm nothing on my own
Got to get that message home

And I'm not gonna stand and wait
Not gonna leave it until it's much too late
On a platform I'm gonna stand and sing
That I'm nothing on my own
And I love you, please come home

My song is love, is love unknown
And I've got to get that message home

    He's in love with this girl and she doesn't love him back anymore... But he's "not gonna take it back", he'll always love her and he just wants her to know that he always will. It's sweet but really sad.

    He is saying "i'm on fire for you, clearly". Like that verse. It's obvious from his outer appearance that he feels something for her. "... Clearly"

    Thissomg means a lot to me. My boyfriend sang it to me before he was my boyfriend. I was having a hard time wit my life. I had felt like no one loved or cared about me. Then he came and said he would sing a song for me and that he meant every word. We hope its going to be our wedding song. I will love and cherish it forever. Just like i will love and cherish my boyfriend forever.

    The girl just left not knowing that the guy is so much in love with her, and what the guy wants now is to tell her in his own way how he really feels for the girl and how he can take her back home. ;)

    i totally agree with Esther92. Also, i think they used to live together, but she left him, because of that line "i love you, please come home"
