I know when he's been on your mind
That distant look is in your eyes
I thought with time you'd realized
It's over, over
It's not the way I choose to live
And something, somewheres got to give
As sharing this relationship gets older, older
You know I'd fight for you
But how can I fight someone who isn't even there
I've had the rest of you
Now I want the best of you
I don't care if that's not fair

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's nowhere left to fall
When youve reached the bottom
It's now or never
Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here with nothing at all

There are times it seems to me
I'm sharing you in memories
I feel it in my heart
But I don't show it, show it
Then there's times you look at me
As though I'm all that you can see
Those times I don't believe it's right
I know it, know it
Don't make me promises
Baby you never did know how to keep them well
I've had the rest of you
Now I want the best of you
It's time to show and tell

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's nowhere left to fall
When you've reached the bottom
It's now or never
Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here
With nothing...

Cause you and I
Could lose it all if you've
Got no more room
No room inside for me in your life

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's nowhere left to fall
It's now or never

Is it all
Or nothing at all
There's nowhere left to fall
When you've reached the bottom
It's now or never

Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here
With nothing at all

All...

    Don't make promises you did never know how to keep them well ".
    Well actually it really hurts, 3yrs ung realtionship and out of this 3yrs naghintay ako, nsa canada kz xa. Well she kept promises na uuwi xa nd d nya me iiwan. But she does,! Rison daw ung skul nd work nya. Db if you rily love d person, kya mong magbigay nang tym kahit konti lang. Well in my case wla. Pero sa frens nya meron. Well dat love is, loving someone so much nd dat so much hurts you in d same way!. She left me behind with nothing, well I expect too much, I'm w8ng too much, I loved her too much,.
    Well good thing I've learnd something no expectations, no responsibilities, no commitment, and respect each other privacy!. Para d ko na maramdaman ung sakit.
    Ganun b ltga? Pag d na msya ang tao sayo even she had my best? Khit pinadama mo na love mo xa na kya ko maghintay khit wla xa khit magisa ako. Well all or ntohing. Til now ang sakit! Since feb10 2pm! Wel I should be over her! Well tama pa bng umasa sa pagblik nya?

    This song shows, that sometimes, there s an unbearable situation although nobody wanted to hurt anybody. She wants to move on, to forget the past, the former relationship, to fall in love with someone new. And her mind says, that her new boyfriend is the right one. But the heart. Still belongs to her ex, cannot forget him. What to do? Leave this great new boyfriend and stay alone forever? Give it some time? . Crap.

    Oh well. The song is indeed great. From top to bottom with a very clear and meaningful message for someone who's recently enduring the memories of the past or probably having troubles with their partners. But for me, I was caught off guard by the lines "you know i'd fight for you but how can i fight someone who isn't even there. I've had the rest of you now i want the best of you, i don't care if that's not fair.. " for someone who's been sacrificing, waiting for someone who doesn't even bother pay attention to you, this song just damn fits perfectly.

    Okay, so to me this song is about not entering a relationship when you still haven't move on with your past. Ganito yun, I once had a boyfriend, well we were chatting on the facebook chatbox and it was already late at night. I remembered that before that night, my friend jenny helped me to tell my boyfriend that I haven't moved on with my ex bf. Well this song is pretty old, but the first time I heard it was when we were chatting on facebook. He told me to listen to it on YouTube so I did. And I really liked it. It was really relating to how much I felt.
    Basically the beginning of the song it says "i know when he's been on your mind that distant look is in your eyes, i thought with time you'd realized it's over over." well yea, now I'm not with my boyfriend anymore, pero everytime I hear this song it reminds me of him and how I learned to love him so much. Share lang po(:

Hehehe. Godbless.
