Journey
Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)

Here we stand
Worlds apart, hearts broken in two (two, two)
Sleepless nights
Losing ground
I'm reaching for you (you, you)

Feelin' that it's gone
Can change your mind
If we can't go on
To survive the tide love divides

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

Troubled times
Caught between confusion and pain (pain, pain)
Distant eyes
Promises we make were in vain (in vain, vain)

If you must go, I wish you love
You'll never walk alone
Take care my love
Miss you love

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you

I still love you girl
I really love you girl
And if he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
No - No -

    They are lovers. She is married--"chains that bind you", and feels she must walk away because they're caught between "the confusion" of this illicit love affair and her commitment to her husband. The right thing to do brings her "pain. ". He thinks she's confused about her feelings for him so he agrees to her wishes to go their seperate ways, however he is certain that she will realize that she loves him--"true love will find you" when her husband(guy) hurts her. This will bring her back into his loving arms.

    Mmm the animal attraction is gone, theres is just friendship, she found some one new, she can always count on the first guy if the new dude ever hurts her, theres still that protective love between them, that association conection that was stablished from a relationshiop and sex. So there will always be love there by association. So she gets hurt she can rely on the first guy.

    The meaning of seperate ways : is mmm! The is a realtionship and this chick is cheating on her man with this one guy had a one night stand they went there seperate ways, he remiand in love with her if she breaks up with him she could always go back to the one night stand, or it was a relationship that didnt work but there is still love him for her and if the new guy ever did hurt her she can always rely one the first guy. . She cheated on the one dude had a one night stand and went back to her man, if he hurts her then she can alway call the one night stand.

    He loves her, she loves someone else, they said things like I'll love you forever but it didn't last. He will be there for her if it doesn't work with the new man. He's sad, a little obsessed, and misses her.
