This song make me think of this girl I used to talk to. She was what I always wanted but we never got together and by the time I fully realized what was in my face the whole time it was too late. There were times when I had to stop talking to her and s**t now I'll probably never get to talk to her again her call. It hurt so much one time she left a pair of shorts at my house and they still smell just like her. When I smell them for a few seconds I got her back. She a really amazing person and I hope she happy she get with and they see how amazing she is right out the gate. I love you Gummi Bear.
For me, it means that the woman wanted to move on and do more with her life. He didn't want to let her to go, so they fought, until he got so mad that he just didn't care what happened. After that, he replays the fight and the relationship over and over again in his head, trying to figure out what went wrong and why. He regrets the bad things he said and for not figuring things out properly. He will never forget her because he truley loved her, and because of that, he knows it was the right thing to do by letting her go so she could be happy.
This really hits home for me, even thought I've never went out with her I've always wanted to be with her and a few weeks ago I started to hint to her I liked her more than a friend, but she wigged out on me telling me I'm creepy, and to stop talking to her, we were goin to be friend for almost three years. I still want to be with her, but most of all I want her to be happy even if its not with me. I hard for me to deal with the pain of probably never getting the chance to show her how much I care for her.
Kinda the position I'm in now. Love this song its totally amazing and it explains so much! My bf recently dumped me and at first I wanted to get back with him but then I thought he probably wont wonna get back with me so now even though it might hurt me I just want him to be happy with whoever it is that makes him happy. Thing is he also left his tie and deoderant round mine so "Somehow everything i own, smells of you" is kinda true. But also coz my friends were pissed and sprayed my room in his deoderant which is kinda not helping the situation haha =/

This song makes me think about my bestfriend leaving me and breaking our plan to go to college together. We were separated since we entered highschool. Since then, we kept missing each other until we hardly saw each other. She went to college for a scholarship in Antipolo which is number of islands away from our home.
