Picture perfect memories
Scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone cause,
I can't fight it anymore
.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time
.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call, but I lost all control
And I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey,
Can't stop looking at the door.
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call, but I lost all control
And I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I just need you now.

(Whoa Whoa)

Yes I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn't call,
But I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I just need you now.
I just need you now.
Oh baby I need you now.

    This song reminds me (not that I need it) of a close friend of mine. Close friend- cause at this stage that's all we are (and, sadly I think that's all we'll ever be) we didn't talk for about 18 months, until recently and throughout that time, whenever I heard this song I'd practically break down. That said, I still *needed* to listen to it, if that makes sense. "guess i'd rather hurt than feel no pain at all. " I'm a bloke, 32 and she's 28.

    This song reminds me of a man I left my husband of 7 years for, briefly, because my husband was taking me for granted and I warned him that I deserve better than the way he'd be treating me. I worked with a handsome Italian body builder, Nick, who saw my unhappiness and my attraction to him from the very moment we met. He opened his bed and his heart to me for two weeks and I left him to return to my husband and children. My heart aches for him when I hear this song. I cry and recite his number in my head. I force myself not to reach for the phone. Nick's influence has strenghthened my marriage and reinforced my confidence. I love him for that.

    My meaning to this song is that one person has done something wrong to hurt there relationship and now they are paying for it. The person who is on the floor with the pictures is thinking about how much that person really meaned to them and how they miss that other person. They finally break down and call that other person. And when they say I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all, means they think it is better to love and know love than to never in there life feel love.

    It reminds of one of my old relationships and one of my brother's relationships. Awkward in some cases, but touching and true. In my relationship it was rocky, then broke up once, got together again, then broke up for good. In my brother's his girlfriend was weird in my opinion, but they got together over and over again after they broke up. They couldn't stay apart. I wish it was like that with my 1st ex. Sigh*.

    I would agree that this is love over pride, missing the person you love the most and forgetting all the hurt that youre feeling just to be with them again. I just heard this song from my brother inlaws ipod and I was like oh my gawd I like this freakin' song. :) after that I told my friend whos a singer ask her to sing it and she actually liked it too!
