Walking up the hill tonight
And you have closed your eyes
I wish I didn't have to make
All those mistakes and be wise
Please try to be patient
And know that I'm still learning
I'm sorry that you have to see
The strength inside me burning

Where are you my angel now
Don't you see me crying?
And I know that you can't do it all
But you can't say I'm not trying
I'm on my knees in front of him
But he doesn't seem to see me
But all his troubles on his mind
He's looking right through me
And I'm letting myself down
By satisfying you
And I wish that you could see
That I have my troubles too

Looking at you sleeping
I'm with the man I love
I'm sitting here weeping
While the hours pass so slow
And I know that in the morning
I'll have to let you go
And you'll be just a man
Once I used to know
And for these past few days
Someone I don't recognize
This isn't all my fault
When will you realize

Looking at you leaving, I'm looking for a sign

    She could be writing to two men - but she could be writing to just one. People change. Her "angel" is the man she loves - his sleeping face lets her see him as that person again. But when he wakes up, he's unkind, so different she hardly recognizes him. She searches herself for how to bridge the gap between them, but she also is tired of being told its all her fault. It fits with the movie's story, a young woman committed to marriage even though it's really bad. I know it's possible to feel all those things towards one person when your desire to be good and loyal wars with your battered heart, and your desire to be part of the solution wars with being expected to be the whole solution.

    I thought i knew the man i loved for who he really was but he was just a liar.. We shared so much together and one day he decided to break it to me that he never loved me like he said he did and he just left and ive never talked to him since.. He was the perfect guy, i thought... I still have a part of me that loves him to this day..

    Loving someone deeply and at the same time harnessing and acting on feelings for another person. She is singing the song not to just one person but two.

    I thought i knew this guy until he suddenly was talking to me and showed me actually how vulnerable he was so i told him how vulnerable i was and we told each other secrets for the whole entire night. The next day he betrayed me and i cried for two weeks and he hasn't talked to me since. I still love the person i know he his, but he won't let show.

    Do something for someone to love, in a way that this person doesnt see that. Is like to love someone more than this person loves you.
