Funny how I find myself in love with you
If I could buy my reasoning, I'd pay to lose
One half won't do

I've asked myself, how much do you commit yourself?
It's my life, don't you forget
It's my life, it never ends (It never ends)

Funny how I blind myself, I never knew
If I was sometimes played upon, afraid to lose

I'd tell myself, what good you do
Convince myself
It's my life, don't you forget
It's my life, it never ends (It never ends)

I've asked myself, how much do you commit yourself?
It's my life, don't you forget
Caught in the crowd, it never ends
It's my life, don't you forget
Caught in the crowd, it never ends
It's my life, don't you forget
Caught in the crowd, it never ends

    Nothing beats the original. Sorry fans of No Doubt, but unless you were there when this song came out, you just don't understand.

    This song has been in my brain for over thirty years. Everytime i hear it, i still stop what i'm doing and listen to it. I think its asking the big question about yourself and your other. What are you going to do, yourself, with your life and / or with or without the other person. So i think ...

    Funny because he should not still be with her, or in love with her, yet he is willing to pay for bad reasoning just to be with her. One half, being without her, won't do. So how far do you keep going like that? It is his life she is playing with, like it is just a game. He blinds himself from the truth for the love he feels for her, but he is vaguely seeing what she is doing through his hurt, but still willing to be with her. So, he is willing to keep going because he feels worthless without her, as if she is a drug. He ask her several times to consider the life that he is, as if that will cause her to see his hurt. Only those caught in crowds after going through this will ever understand, it never ends.

    Erm, no. Writers Mark Hollis & Tim Friese-Greene. Talk Talk song. WTF did Billy Joel come from? Sounds nothing like a BJ song...

    To me, it's questioning one's own level of commitment to someone else after being put thru the relationship wringer. Also wanting to be in a relationship again but cautious of being a doormat once more...
