I'll never see what you wanted... love
I was the hell that you needed... oh
I was the one when you needed love
I was the one when you needed love

    I'll never see what you wanted ... Love
    i was the hell that you needed ... Oh
    i was the one "that" you needed ... Love
    i was the one when you needed ... Love

    "that" is my own personal contribution to this segue into the often times mendacious nature of love.

    I've completed the manchester 10k and this song was on when i crossed the finish line. Very poigniant as i've trained to do this run to get over a whirlwind romance that was my heaven and hell!

    Giving the wrong kind of love - instead of projecting how we want to be loved, its a lifetime's task to learn how to love expecting nothing in return. - fail :)

    We are all one, yeah you need to be a complete human being to get this... A hint for soul searchers: look within, chose love... I see the vast majority today can't get their eyes from their current little thought/goal/problem and just be... Look at the sky and you will find peace... There might be slaves and masters in this world, but the true masters have understood love.

    The few lyrics wrap and wrap and it pulls you in to ideas common to all human love~ perhaps a revelation that the singer (anybody you want to pick out) missed it completely and when someone needed love they were the hell instead that was offered, then wrapping again it's recognizing and declaring that you were the one who came through for them. Very compelling 5 lines. In The Next Three Days it is a mysterious time for this song to appear. Good job, Moby - whoever you are, did good.
