I don't want you to come 'round here no more
I beg you for mercy
You don't know how strong my weakness is
Or how much it hurts me

'Cause when you say it's over with her
I want to believe it's true
So I let you in knowin' tomorrow
I'm gonna wake up missin' you
Wake up missin' you

When the one you love's in love with someone else
Touch and go, it's torture; I mean it's a livin' hell
No matter how I try to convince myself this time, I won't lose control
One look in your blue eyes and suddenly, my heart can't tell you no

I don't want you to call me up no more
Sayin' you need me
You're crazy if you think just half your love
Could ever please me

But still, I want to hold you, touch you
When you look at me that way
There's only one solution I know of
You've got to stay away from me
Stay away from me

When the one you love's in love with someone else
Touch and go, it's torture; I mean it's a livin' hell
No matter how I try to convince myself this time, I won't lose control
One look in your sad eyes and suddenly, my heart can't tell you no
(My heart can't tell you no)

My heart can't tell you know

I don't want you to come 'round here no more
I beg you for mercy

When the one you love's in love with someone else
Touch and go, it's torture; I mean it's a livin' hell

When the one you love's in love with someone else
Don't you know it's torture; I mean it's a livin' hell

Livin' hell (When the one you love's in love with someone else)
Don't you know it's torture; (I mean it's a livin' hell) torture

    I think that this song can be about a girl that is in love with her friend that has a girlfriend. That the guy only looks for her whenever he has problems with his girlfriend but she is always hoping that one day he will leave his girlfriend to be wit her and she is always there for him however it seems like he doesnt love her the way she loves him and it hurts her alot but no mater how much she tries to let go of him at the end shes always wanting to have him near . She wants to stop suffering but he keeps coming around and her love for him is her weakness.

    I love this one boy.he has a girlfriend, or a new one , anyway. He has her, but sometimes him and i will find our way back to eachother and give in to the love we feel. I can't find myself to say no. I love him, and i'd do anything just to spend a few more momments with him. He says he wants me, and he wished we could find a way to be together, but he still won't break up with his girl. You see, him and me used to be friends. He was there when my old boyfriend wasn't. Now, my friends say, that he's only using me. I refuse to believe it, whenever i remember the guy he used to be, whenever we were just friends. I love him, and i wish he would just tell me the truth of how he feels. I know we could make this work if only he would make up his mind, and tell me his true feelings. I love him, and i can't bring myself to tell him no , whenever we get those few special momments alone. I can"t tell him no !!! Love,cara

    Meaning to this song to me, is a girl is in love with a man that is still in love with his ex. I am in the same situation. When i hear this song it was made perfect for my situation. It's so hard!
    He knows i love him. We would stay together the whole night together with me knowing that he still is in love with her and lied to me about and told me they werent dating. But i couldnt walk away and my heart couldnt tell him now.
