Softly, gently
I will let you down
'Cause I don't love you
In the same way now
I can hold you
But not with lover's arms
'Cause you are more of
A brother to me now
'Cause I can lie next to you
But I can't lie to you

(Chorus)
So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
For me, it's getting steep...

I loved you for
Exactly who you are
And I'd say we've come
The nearest yet by far
'Cause I can lie next to you
But I can't lie to you

(Chorus)
So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
For me, it's getting...

Steeper
From where the dark that's where I want to be
Steeper
From going somewhere you won't want to see

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
Yes, I will watch you
Walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain drops
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
For me, it's getting steep...

    Hrm. Every time I hear this song I get melancholic. I kinda "feel" the song, even though I'm not in this kind of situation.
    Sometimes you love but it's just not enough I guess. You've gotta stop lying to that other person, because you love him enough not to lie, but not enough for the relationship to last, so it's better to let him be free to find someone else who'll love him better. So sad. *Sniff*.

    I'm currently reading the last book of the hunger games trilogy by suzanne collins which is the mockingjay. I was reading the part where katniss everdeen and gale hawthorne went back to district 12 specifically in the kitchen part where gale and katniss had this conversation about the kiss that katniss gave to gale after he was whipped. This song reminded me of the part:.
    ("i" pertains to katniss since she was the one narrating.)
    "have to be dead to forget. Maybe even not then," he tells me. "maybe i'll be like that man in 'the.
    Hanging tree. ' still waiting for an answer. " gale, who I have never seen cry, has tears in his eyes. To.
    Keep them from spilling over, I reach forward and press my lips against his. We taste of heat, ashes, and.
    Misery. It's a surprising flavor for such a gentle kiss. He pulls away first and gives me a wry smile. "i
    Knew you'd kiss me. "
    "how? " I say. Because I didn't know myself.
    "because i'm in pain," he says. "that's the only way i get your attention. " he picks up the box. "don't
    Worry, katniss. It'll pass. " he leaves before I can answer.
    I cried after I read this. Really cried hard. And as for now, I'm crying again. It's just so unfair. You love someone but that person you love won't love you back the way you want them to. You'll just have to let them go just to make them happy. You'll just have to wait until the feeling fades away. I guess the odds were not in gale's favor. :(

    Sometimes when we realize things are not meant for us we actually hide the feeling that we've been hurt and trying to smile everyday. It's not a good way for us to keep what we are feeling how can we be free if we try to hide what we really feel, sometimes it is just a lesson for us to teach us that we should not take evrything or someone for granted because it may not come again. And we end up empty.

    This song makes me wonder why do sometimes people needs to sacrifice. It makes me miss my special someone, Wishing him to be mine but I know it will not be realize because someone already owns his heart. I'm stupid and someimes pathetic that's the essence of loving a person who doesn't love you in return. In connection with this song, I hope that someday this love will fade and I couldn't love you this same way now. ='(
