Blue October – Calling You lyrics
There's something I can't quite explain
I'm so in love with you
You'll never take that away
And if I've said it a hundred times before
Expect a thousand more
You'll never take that away

So expect me to be
Calling you to see
If you're okay when I'm not around
Asking "if you love me"
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

[Chorus:]
I will keep calling you to see
If you're sleeping, are you dreaming
If you're dreaming, are you dreaming of me
I can't believe you actually picked me

I thought that the world had lost it's sway
It's so hard sometimes
Then I fell in love with you
Then came you
And you took that away
It's not so difficult
The world is not so difficult
You take away the old
Show me the new
And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you
So while I'm on this phone
A hundred miles from home
I'll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

I only want to see
If you're okay when I'm not around
Asking "if you love me"
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

[Chorus:]

    To me this is a song about acceptance and questioning. It was originally written from Justin to a girl who he betrayed and his hope that she is ok. See interview with Justin about his interpretation of the meaning. Obviously, his meaning is far more accurate than any of us.
    The first video of this song focuses on a man who is blind and his near disbelief that who could accept him for who he is. I can relate. I am lucky to have a husband who unquestioningly loves me, but every day I question it to a degree - "I can't believe you actually picked me..."

    This song was dedicated to me not but five minutes ago by the love of my life. I live in pennsylvania and he lives in texas. He always calls just to tell me he loves me and if I am ok because hes not around. This song can definitly pertain to two lovers whether they are g*, straight, or somewhere in between. Because each of them always wonders why did they pick me out of everyone else in the world.

    And in comes the cyncial divorcee with a totally different take on the whole thing.
    To me, this is a song from a narcissist to the poor sucker with whom he claims to be in love. The dude blows just enough sunshine in his lover's direction to give the appearance of a regular lovesick romeo, but he's actually a stalker who wants to control the other person's emotions, thoughts and dreams. It's an obsessive love, thus the incessant phone calls to see if all's well. And this dude is so mentally off kilter that he lives in his own reality in which the other person "picked" him.
