Gavin Rossdale – Love Remains The Same lyrics

A thousand times I've seen you standing
Gravity like lunar landing
You make me want to run till' I find you
I shut the world away from here
I drift to you, you're all I hear
As everything we know fades to black

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

I find a place where we escape
Take you with me for the space
The city buzz sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I have to find just where you are
The faces seem to blur
They're all the same

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

So much more to say
So much to be done
Don't you trick me out
We shall overcome
It's all left still to play

We should've had the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we're over here

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time too long defending
You and I are done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change

I, oh I,
I wish this could last forever
I, oh I,
As if we could last forever

Love remains the same
Love remains the same

    Yea this song is incredible.
    And it sucks cuz its exactly what I'm going through.
    Hes ovioulsy in love with the grl. But for some reason, rightnow they can't be togteher. All that's left of the person is the memories they hve shared. And at the same time, he loves the grl, but hes dying inside, because shes pushing him beyond his limits, and hes getting to a point were he knows right now, this isn't gonna work out. No matter how much he wants it to.
    I love wen he says "faces seem to blur, there all the same" that line is basically saying that ervything is just fading away around him. Andhe cnt focus on anything, and cnt even find someone else, becuase everyone is the same. And this person who he loves is diffferent.
    But like the words, he can't pretend anymore that everythings okay, its hurting him to much. He wishes it could last forever, and still hopes for the day that therll get bak togteher, but right now. He has no choice. But to let her goo.

    I have a couple of friends who are going through this. Exactly.
    I have known them both since elementary school. The guy has been in love with the girl since before I can remember and he wasn't afraid to tell her; she accepted it but never returned it. They finally got around to dating a few months ago, but she's getting bored, and shes starting to hurt him (unintentionally, of course). He has given her more chances than I would have been able to, and it keeps coming around to hurt him even more.
    They can't pretend that things are the same anymore (because they fight too much and can't fix things), but they can't let go of the relationship either. She's afraid she will lose him as her best friend. He's just too in love to put it behind him.
    As for myself, as the best friend of both of them, I wish I could fix it, but that's up to them.
    Everything will change.

    I think.
    He loves this person, but knows they can't be together. He wants to run back to what's familiar to him, but is trying to get through it. (You make me wanna run till I find you).
    He's tired of trying to pretend everything's ok when it's not. (Half the time the world is ending; Truth is I am done pretending).
    The relationship/this person changed who he was, pushed him to be a better person, but it doesn't change the fact that he's sad about losing them. It's like he's saying look at me, I'm actually surviving. (I never thought that I had anymore to give; You're pushing me so far; Here I am without you)
    But their memory is still there no matter where he goes (I find a place where we escape; Take you with me for the space)
    He's going to celebrate the good times they had and move on, but he'll always love them (Drink to all that we have lost, Mistakes we have made, Everything will change, But love remains the same).
    Beautiful, Sorry for your loss--I recently lost my dad, the song makes me think of him too. :)

    Yeah I agree with what has been said for the most part, this song is about enduring suffering for quite some time, silently for the sake of the partner the person singing the song is in love with. But in the end the person can only take so much without calling it quits, until being forced to realize that things just can't go on that way anymore. They can't continue acting and pretending everything is alright and that they aren't suffering. Personally I think this is a great song which a lot of people could relate to.

    I totally agree with the people that left the 1st & 2nd comments. It's most definetly about a guy that is in love with a girl. But she is getting bored in the relationship because nothings happening. She keeps hurting him and he's saying 'the truth is I am done pretending like it's not hurting me. ' They also keep fighting, but he can't seem to find another girl as special as her. He has no choice but to call it quits even though he'd love it to last forever. And I love this song. But it sux cuz this is exactly what's happening to me. :/
