I've been so alone all my life
I couldn't give my heart to anyone
Hiding in myself was a man
Who needed to be held like everyone


The days moved into years
I look for warmth between the tears
It never ever found me
Never ever found me
Yes, I did seem to grasp at straws
They surely broke all the time

So I hid inside
(Till) I almost died
Yes I hid inside and I cried
A loving heart in a sensitive man
Hiding inside myself

Then you came out of nowhere
I could not believe my heart
I didn't know how to tell you
Didn't know where to start
I know you understand

When I hid inside
I almost died
Oh, I hid inside and I cried
A loving heart in a sensitive man
I know you'll understand

(Instrumental)

I love you...

    The guy is alone and sad. Afraid to be hurt again or to be left in the end. He is just like any man. Needs someone to love and be loved. And the as time goes by things are the same. So he just keeps it that way being afraid to love because of his not good past or experience. He was alone and sad. And then this girl comes. He loves her and he does not know what to do because he was in that position before and he got hurt so badly to the point that he is stuck in that way. This is a very sad song. And for correction this is not a gay song.

    Pertaining to a person who fell in love before but got hurt real bad to the point that the person is too scared to try again ... Until the day comes that he met a girl... But just like what happened before, he's too scared to try again even if he love this new girl

    It is about the man who afraid to get hurt again... Mybe na inlove sya sa isang girl before,pro nsaktan lng sya,dhil hndi cla mgkapriha ng estado sa buhay,pro mpag biro ang tdhana,ito na nman nainlove na nman sya sa iyang babae na mayaman,so ang gnawa nya,pra hndi na muling msaktan,pilit nya nalang itinatago,kahit mahirap at msakit,mas mabuti na kesa masaktan nman ulit ng sobra, sobrang relate ako sa song na to,

    Its about a man who fell in love and got hurt. He didn't expect to ever find a woman who will make him fall in love but he did. Afraid of getting hurt again, he just hides the feeling. So sad. But he should have tried falling in love again. Falling in love and getting hurt makes you feel human...

    This song refer to a man who knows the meaning and feeling of faling inolve and the hurt by doing so, when he felt the love for a women who came into his life, he was afraid that he might feel the same way so he never did dare to try... Though he really love the girl. The feeling of rejection and hurt became the barrier on his life... So sad
