RS 1
I often close my eyes
And I can see you smile
You reach out for my hand
And I'm woken from my dream
Although your heart is mine
It's hollow inside
I never had your love
And I never will


CHORUS
And every night
I lie awake
Thinking maybe you love me
Like I've always loved you
But how can you love me
Like I loved you when
You can't even look me straight in my eyes


VRS 2/3
I've never felt this way
To be so in love
To have someone there
Yet feel so alone
Aren't you supposed to be
The one to wipe my tears
The on to say that you would never leave

The waters calm and still
My reflection is there
I see you holding me
But then you disappear
All that is left of you
Is a memory
On that only, exists in my dreams

CHORUS

VRS 4
I don't know what hurts you
But I can feel it too
And it just hurts so much
To know that I can't do a thing
And deep down in my heart
Somehow I just know
That no matter what
I'll always love you

VRS 1

So why am I still here in the rain

    When I first heard the song, it breaks my heart. It was as if, it touches my very soul and awakes all the pains I've had with my first love. The guy who made me feel like I'm the most beautiful woman he'd set his eyes on. He who taught me how to love. I fell for this guy. For 3 long years. The feeling was unsaid. I just let it go. My biggest mistake. I was weak to tell it to him my feelings. Afraid of rejection maybe. He made me feel so especial, but love is far way different from especial. And now, he found a girl. I know he love her so much. And it pained me, thinking it should be me. So I tried to move on. But even though I moved on, I still feel the pain.

    This song reminds me of someone who hurts my feeling for the first time. He told me that I'm the prettiest girl that he ever met, and I trusted him, like a lot, he always told me stuff that make me thinks that he likes me, my smile won't fade away when I'm with him, evert single word that he told me, make me feel like the world is mine, but everything changed when he finally met a new girl, and of course, the girl is much more prettier than me, smarter than me. They started to get closer and closer when the girl started to ask him for a movie. He went with him. Then one morning, the guy rang me, he told me that he finally dated the girl. I broke into pieces that moment. Tell me, if you were me, will you feel the same?

    When I hear this song it reminds me of a girl and a boy being in love yet the boy chooses another girl that he really loves, leaving the girl with pain and sadness. Every time she looks at her reflection and see the boy's face, it disappears saying that she should forget about him. Always believe in love and it would guide you every step of the way- qaliesha 13 yr old.

    Everytime I heard this song, I always remember the most unforgettable experienced I ever had. It seems like I lost half of my soul, because of this song I've lost my friend, a very close to my heart, he didn't knew how important he is in my life, but then again, with this song we lost our friendships and it ends in each others pain. That's why, this song is for the people who aims for a love. And a love that will not end up together. How sad!

    Before I ever read these words, the song brought me to tears every time I heard it. These lyrics touch my soul as if I had written them. To me it is about a lifelong unrequited love. She is married to someone. And he is a friend of them both and has taken a religious vow to never marry.
    They are so close that he understands her like no one else: She dreams of him, and finds often what she dreams is really happening to him.
    When they are young, there are problems in the marriage: he chooses to stay away because "I'm afraid I will make things worse."
    There is a gap in the years when they don't see each other, but then she gets back in touch, and he is happy. By this time, they have both spent their lives doing what they were "supposed" to do, but the love is still there. He still refuses to see the couple; knowing of the life and family they have together hurts him too deeply. But now that they are old, the lines of communication are open - she has let him know for years how important he is to her - to them, and though he expresses very little, he lets her know that he wants her there for him in the only way they can be together - as soul mates and best friends across the miles.
