Dreams
That's where I have to go
To see your beautiful face anymore
I stare at a picture of you
And listen to the radio
Hope
Hope there's a conversation
Where we both admit we had it good
But until then
It's alienation I know
That much is understood
And I realize

If you ask me how I'm doin
I would say I'm doin just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down
At a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what I say
I'm, not over you

Damn
Damn girl you do it well
And I thought you were innocent
Took this heart and put it through hell
And still your magnificent
I, I'm a boomerang
Doesn't matter how you throw me
Turn around
And I'm back in the game
Even better than the old me
But I'm not even close without you

If you ask me how I'm doin
I would say I'm doin just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down
At a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what I say
I'm, not over you

And if I had the chance
To renew
You know there isn't a thing I wouldn't do
I could get back on the right track
But only if you'd be convinced
So until then

If you ask me how I'm doin
I would say I'm doin just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down
At a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what I say
I'm, not over you
Not over you
Not over you
Not over you

    This song truly reflects how i feel. I did something wrong and if i am given a chance, i would do anything and everything to get you back. Its been almost 2 years but i cant still get over you. Im missing you so much. You walked away, bringing my heart with you.
    Wish you the happiness in the world cause u truly deserve it. I love you fauziah osman.

    Its your meaning not what you think he means...
    To me this song hits home, it fits perfectly. It reflects alot that i am going through. Its about loving someone and lying to ones self and lying to everyone else about things being okay and that your moving on. When your finally alone or in an area that puts you in a situation and triggers memories you have to face the truth, because it is staring at you in the loneliness or rather emptiness of a chair. You are forced to the face the truth because the truth is if you were over that person or attempting to be, you would not be sitting at a table for two lone.

    He was trying to hide the truth but the truth is that he will never get over that girl no matter what she say or do.

    He is sad, maybe he did something wrong, maybe its too late and he misses her, he wants to move one but he cant. And all the things he is doing undeniably means that he's not over her..
