Hello, it's me
I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong
There's something here that doesn't last too long
Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you're always there
I take for granted that you just don't care
Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that i'd be with you if i could.
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if i ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think i should

(think of me)

    It's about a man that has died and is watching over his first love. The something that doesn't last too long is life. He sees her a lot because he is watching over her, but he wants her to know that she is free... It is okay to move on with her life. He doesn't want her to change because he is gone... He wants her to love again. He also wants her to know he would be with her physically if he could. Spending the night is figurative for being there for her through the darkness... When she needs to smile. He just wants to know that she still thinks of him because he is always with her.

    This is a period of time I am now experiencing. I think of my best friend who is "always there" for me, despite the fact that he is married to another lady and was when I met him in 2012. I am so in love with him but "It's important to me" to know he is free to choose with whom he wants to be. Me or his wife. And I truly would "never want to make him change for me"; despite the fact that I struggle with that part and I cry over it A lot! I am not first, second or even third place in his life but I still want him to "think of me" when he can. I would be with him "if I could" but that would take a miracle. He does "come around to see" me not once in awhile but often(once a week for lunch)and we text and speak on the phone a lot. If he cannot be my lover, as least I have a very, very good friend; we get along so well, but he does get upset when I cry over him or this song! Thanks Todd! Love you forever and ever!

    It's about longing and letting go, and of knowing that we don't possess the ones we love. It's about being sad to know it's over but feeling love fill your heart at the same time.

    Well, this is a tune I remember from way back to when I first started listening to popular music on the radio. Even back then as a young teen, I was intrigued with the emotions of angst and longing it envoked, and the adult theme of imperfect, complicated love that said something about love as an enduring condition
