I must say that I worry for
You can't live like this no more
I must say that I worry for you

I must say that I worry for
Our love in this cold war
I must say that I worry for you

Took me by surprise
That I just didn't see
She had her dark past, her broken heart
And she wants it loved

But in the darkest of times
She won't be honest with lies
Put her words in a fancy dress
And we'll keep up this disguise

But no longer
It's not getting stronger
No longer for me

I must say that I worry for
You can't live like this no more
I must say that I worry for you

But you, But you don't wanna think no more
Passed out on your bedroom floor
I must say that I worry for you

Took me by surprise
A man once made a key
To open her dark heart
He broke apart what was once in love

But it's clear now to see
That man, he was me
And so I go far, far
Without her, don't you follow me

And no longer
We're not getting stronger
No longer for me

I must say that I worry for
You can't live like this no more
I must say that I worry for you

I must say that I worry for
Our love in this cold war
I must say that I worry for you
I worry for you
I worry for you
I worry for you
I worry for you

I'm just saying that I worry for
I'm just saying that I worry for
I'm just saying that I worry for
And I'm just saying that I worry for
I'm just saying that I worry for...
(keeps repeating)

    It's about a long and intense friendship that turned into a relationship. Two persons that had their heart broken from the beginning of their socialisation and therefore never stood a chance in this modern illusional perfect emotional society. All they ever wanted is to be truely loved, even with their dark past and broken personality. When they met each other beyond their friendship he wasn't able to break their friendish habits, because he was afraid of losing their already priceless friendship and so he didn't let his romantic feelings get to him which predestined their new born romantic relationship to fail. Both broken hearted, he just realises the intensity of his true romantic feelings and his absolute dedication which was drowned in fear of becoming completely unprotected and broken all over again in a too intense relationship which makes him fight for it like a hopeless and outrageously scared lion. While she already gives into a new opportunity which compensates and makes her feel desired and loved again - just to ease the pain and disappointment of the great hopes of their seemingly failed relationship. The cold war of burning love seems to be lost, because she praises and fancies her new born "fallen-in-love-relationship" unconsciously knowing that all she is doing is a lie to protect her from the pain of a completely shattered heart. Coming to mind, that the only person who made the perfect key to her dark heart rejected her with uncertainty of developing romantic feelings towards her. While all which is coming to his mind is: go far, far away from her to let her at least enjoy her hapiness, supressing the friendly and romantic relationship to grow stronger, to try to forget about everything shattered in the past and hold on to the thought of a new start - inevitably worrying for the other person to emotionally die along the way of recovery.
