A Fine Frenzy – Almost Lover lyrics
Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images
You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick


Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me


[Chorus:]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream

I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be
?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images
And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, ever forget
These images

Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

[Chorus:]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine

Did I make it that
Easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?

[Chorus:]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

    It tells about loving someone who doesn't love you back. You want to move on but you don't want to go to waste your love for him. It does hurt. And anyone who had been in this situation can clearly relate, but you got to know that God has a plan for you. You may not know it yet. But it will come to place, like everything in your life did. And even how hard you fall for someone if he is not your destiny, it can never work.

    This song really hits the "I love you but you don't love me" relationship. Its really strong when the song describes her fantasies or memories then says "images" meaning its not real, or its pointless to think about it when it won't happen. The song takes it to level deeper by showing that she liked him, he doesn't, she's okay with it, but the guy continues to hurt her. She wonders, "I never wanted you to be unhappy, thought you'd want the same for me" It takes a very deep level of the break-up and shows the pain. It makes me a cry alot too.

    It is about a girl who thought that she and his loved ones could be more than friends. Suddenly, the boy doesn't like the girl that much as the girl loves him. And she thought that he could be mr. Right. After that shes hoping not to be hurt next time. She even thought that her loved boy will not hurt her but it came out to be that she is hurt like what other almost lover do to the one who loved them trully. Well the equation is love=hurt
    This is #5 on my breakup playlist. Wenever I hav a terrible breakup I listen to the playlist all day.

    I'm so touched by this song. Not that I'm being martyr or anything. I just know the feeling of being so attached with the person you can't be with. The feeling of having an affair with someone who can't be yours. Like what the song said almost lover. You haven't got in any commitment. And he is not leaving you for another. Its just that you and him can't be together because of some circumstances you can't and can never be resolved. Left with no choice. Because you don't want to hurt each other anymore. Because of the fact that both of you can only grow closer together but can never be together. You choose to let go. Giving each other time and chance to find another who can be their own. Though the feeling is still there. You choose to let go. And then move on. 'coz there is no point in hoping for something or even holding on to something if having it is uncertain. You might as well miss the right person for you for holding on to the wrong one.

    You know when you meet that one person and you think that nothing exists with out them and they tell you all this stuff and you just can't help but believe them. But then some one else pops up in thier life and you just sit in your room and cry for ever. Well almost lover is when you finally relise that the perosn doesn't have that hold on you anymore and you can break free or at lease to me that's what it means.

    Sometimes people start to fall in love, and they are so close until one eventually drifts apart from the other. One stops loving the other, and the other person is left with nothing but meaningless memories and a broken heart. I have experienced this before, and I think that this is what they are trying to say. It hurts so much, to feel like you only are worth something to someone for a short period of time. It made me feel worthless and just a temporary person to love. It sucks how one person can make you feel like you're not worthy of love and care, and you never will be.

    She's talking about how close she was with someone, only for that person to break away from her, hence (almost lover). They were so close to defining love. Now she's realized that she no longer has this person in her grasp for whatever reason that may be and she is heart broken. This person is constantly on her mind day and night, and eventually she realizes that she needs to "get over herself" hence, (goodbye, my almost lover). She accepts the fact that she was so close yet still so far away from love.

    Its that moment you realize it was a fantasy. A dream. A game of pretend. The good seems so good only because the bad was so bad. So mercurial. Its that moment that you realize your heart was shredded, and you didn't get all the pieces back. When you have lost your other half, your reason for joy, your future. That moment when you realize you can't have them because they aren't right. They're just "almost" and nothing more.

    If you make a mistake, sometimes you can take it back. But sometimes, you can't, no matter how hard you try. You always have to remember that everything happens for a reason, even the worst things have been planned and have a result. So hold the ones you love close, don't let them go, cause you'll never ever get them back. And then, you'll be doomed. You'll become almost lovers.

    Girls don't be a door mat. Don't let guys walk all over you, over and over again. This song is about a girl who was truely and deeply in lveo with a guy. And like most relationships he used her, and left her for another, which hell do her the same as the last, and the next. Don't let guys do this, don't think hes the one til your sure and youre never sure til he proves it. And gives you his all. And don't rush in to say you love someone, you may not mean it or they may no say it and mean it back, just wait until its the right time and you truely mean it.
