Everything But The Girl – Politics Aside lyrics

You always loved the sad songs, like you loved it when I lost, so I don't tell you when I'm happy because it only makes you cross. And I thought as I was leaving, and it strkes me every time, politics aside we always, I thought we always got on fine.

Crystal clear were my intentions, but you didn't want to know, when there's no point in staying, you just go.

And I'll be driving through provincial towns and places sweetly named, and I'll be looking for a centre, for a sense of live contained. But them I'm out the other side and through suburban avenues and I realise it never was there. Well, that's how I feel about you.

Crystal clear were my intentions, but you didn't want to know, when there's no point in staying you just go.

    This is how I look at the song: it's like you've been through a lot of issues--- and it even got to the point of you two separating and never got back, like at first, there's communication which may lead to an emerging friendship (or whatever the relationship calls for), and all of a sudden, one of you stayed away from the other in which the other doesn't know the reason why. Yet, despite of everything that has gone through the two of you, no matter how much you wanted to hate the other, there's still a part when you wished you want to get along together. Like, why hate when there's nothing wrong?
    That's just my two cents on the song. Because it tells so much about a part of my story.
