Verse 1
Knew the signs wasn't right
I was stupid for a while
Swept away by you
And now I feel like a fool

Chorus
So confused
My heart's bruised
Was I ever loved by you?
Out of reach, so far
I never had your heart
Out of reach, couldn't see
We were never meant to be

Verse 2
Catch myself from despair
I could drown if I stay here
Keeping busy everyday
I know I will be ok

Chorus
But I'm
So confused
My heart's bruised
Was I ever loved by you?
Out of reach, so far
I never had your heart
Out of reach, couldn't see
We were never meant to be

Bridge
So much hurt, so much pain
Takes a while to regain
What is lost inside
And I hope that in time
You'll be out of my mind
I'll be over you

Chorus
And now I'm
So confused
My heart's bruised
Was I ever loved by you?
Out of reach, so far
I never had your heart
Out of reach, couldn't see
We were never meant to be

Out of reach, so far,
You never gave your heart
In my reach, I can see
There's a life out there for me

    it's painful to love someone who doesn't/can't love you back...
    for awhile you thought that you can bare with it because you are overwhelmed with the love that you feel for that person...
    but in the end, you will realize that it's not really worth it to drown yourself in that situation... everybody deserves to be loved as well, that's why at the end of the song, it says there "there's a life out there for me"... it means that you need to let go and move on because maybe someone's waiting there for you...

    just a peice of advice...
    GO ON AND MOVE ON...
    you deserve someone better...
    don't drown yourself and wait for someone who is not willing to love you...
    everybody deserves to love and be loved

    its,better to acept pain,that you know were it comes from,.,than to acept pain you donot know whom to blame,your self or your love one that hurt you,.,is it corect that you blame your self?because you know that you have no chance you are continueng to wait four her love,and when the times comes that you can't hold your self to expres wat you feel to her,and the girl refuse your fuckin love,you start destroying yourself,.,or? you start to blame her because she dont give you a chance...
