Gavin Rossdale – Love Remains The Same lyrics
A thousand times I've seen you standing
Gravity like lunar landing
You make me want to run till' I find you
I shut the world away from here
I drift to you, you're all I hear
As everything we know fades to black

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

I find a place where we escape
Take you with me for the space
The city buzz sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I have to find just where you are
The faces seem to blur
They're all the same

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

So much more to say
So much to be done
Don't you trick me out
We shall overcome
It's all left still to play

We should've had the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we're over here

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time too long defending
You and I are done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change

I, oh I,
I wish this could last forever
I, oh I,
As if we could last forever

Love remains the same
Love remains the same

    Yea this song is incredible.
    And it sucks cuz its exactly what I'm going through.
    Hes ovioulsy in love with the grl. But for some reason, rightnow they can't be togteher. All that's left of the person is the memories they hve shared. And at the same time, he loves the grl, but hes dying inside, because shes pushing him beyond his limits, and hes getting to a point were he knows right now, this isn't gonna work out. No matter how much he wants it to.
    I love wen he says "faces seem to blur, there all the same" that line is basically saying that ervything is just fading away around him. Andhe cnt focus on anything, and cnt even find someone else, becuase everyone is the same. And this person who he loves is diffferent.
    But like the words, he can't pretend anymore that everythings okay, its hurting him to much. He wishes it could last forever, and still hopes for the day that therll get bak togteher, but right now. He has no choice. But to let her goo.

    Yeah I agree with what has been said for the most part, this song is about enduring suffering for quite some time, silently for the sake of the partner the person singing the song is in love with. But in the end the person can only take so much without calling it quits, until being forced to realize that things just can't go on that way anymore. They can't continue acting and pretending everything is alright and that they aren't suffering. Personally I think this is a great song which a lot of people could relate to.

    I have a couple of friends who are going through this. Exactly.
    I have known them both since elementary school. The guy has been in love with the girl since before I can remember and he wasn't afraid to tell her; she accepted it but never returned it. They finally got around to dating a few months ago, but she's getting bored, and shes starting to hurt him (unintentionally, of course). He has given her more chances than I would have been able to, and it keeps coming around to hurt him even more.
    They can't pretend that things are the same anymore (because they fight too much and can't fix things), but they can't let go of the relationship either. She's afraid she will lose him as her best friend. He's just too in love to put it behind him.
    As for myself, as the best friend of both of them, I wish I could fix it, but that's up to them.
    Everything will change.

    I think.
    He loves this person, but knows they can't be together. He wants to run back to what's familiar to him, but is trying to get through it. (You make me wanna run till I find you).
    He's tired of trying to pretend everything's ok when it's not. (Half the time the world is ending; Truth is I am done pretending).
    The relationship/this person changed who he was, pushed him to be a better person, but it doesn't change the fact that he's sad about losing them. It's like he's saying look at me, I'm actually surviving. (I never thought that I had anymore to give; You're pushing me so far; Here I am without you)
    But their memory is still there no matter where he goes (I find a place where we escape; Take you with me for the space)
    He's going to celebrate the good times they had and move on, but he'll always love them (Drink to all that we have lost, Mistakes we have made, Everything will change, But love remains the same).
    Beautiful, Sorry for your loss--I recently lost my dad, the song makes me think of him too. :)

    Love this song. I thought that Gary didn't even know I was a living person. Every time I saw him out side(We have a bit of an age difference but he doesn't care, hes older by 2 years) he would have hes down and I was like. My friend was like it ok. Turns out when he saw me he was to nervous to look at me cuz hes heart beats so fast. Lolz I thought that was so cute. He told me like a month into our relationship:)

    He loves her so much, They made mistakes and said things but they both love eachother deathly. It hurts and turns him cold and he feels painful heart breaking feelings and wants it to be forever. They love eachother and no matter what happens, the love between them will always remain the same. You stand in the same place with tht person forever. You'll always love them, Once you become attatched to tht person, Theres no turning away from them, no matter how hard you try. You can't convince urself they don't matter anymore. You know they always will.

    I think it means that the guy and the girl loved eachother so much that they got pushed to thir limits because they were so different from eachother. Then the girl left him because she couldn't take it any longer. Then the guy is very upset so he drinks and he says no matter what the love between them will always remain the same. Even though he still had so much more to say that could have made things better and he will never forget thier love because it will always be there.

    My opinion. He was in a rough relationship and they both tried their best to make it work. You can only take so much until your pushed beyond your limits. He acknowledge that the must take a stand and state his position, theres no turning back. As you drink your sorrows away and get over the blame. Deep down the love you had for that person will always remain the same. Know what your love was and that it is for that person. After everything that happen in the end you know where you stand.

    To The Marine,. Ummm,. You sound like an ok guy,. But you gotta snap out of it. I don't know her,. Don't know you. But you gotta move forward,. Open your eyes,. Stay moving,. Maybe God has a different plan for you. One better. Trust in Him,. It didn't work for a reason,. So you can't sit back and keep your eyes closed as you say. Glad you want another chance with her,. But it is what it is. Keep moving. If youre a Marine,. You have to understand this. Your survival requires it. Maybe youre idealizing her,. Not sure. But just keep moving. All the best. Vega.

    I totally agree with the people that left the 1st & 2nd comments. It's most definetly about a guy that is in love with a girl. But she is getting bored in the relationship because nothings happening. She keeps hurting him and he's saying 'the truth is I am done pretending like it's not hurting me. ' They also keep fighting, but he can't seem to find another girl as special as her. He has no choice but to call it quits even though he'd love it to last forever. And I love this song. But it sux cuz this is exactly what's happening to me. :/

    My ex boyfriend and I were together for about 16 months. Even though he cheated on me, I stayed. He dumped me early last month. I heard this song and it made me think about him. I stand here alone, and I look back at all of the memories we made together. Late nights when we skyped, the letters we wrote, the secrets we shared. Losing him was hell for me. He was my best friend and the light in my dark world. I always though that when the world would change, him and I wouldn't. He may not feel the same way, but I still love him as much as I did when we first began to date.

    Hmmm I dnt no how to say this but. Every couple fights here and there. Gary and I fight sometimes but the thing is we never say bye to eachother until we fixed the fight. We have had like 3 fights, what did they last for like 10 minutes. Forgive and forget. That's what I say. One fight was cuz he always would say so ur friends think I'm hot. I would say no and change the subject but one day he said it again "So ur friends want to go out with me" and yeah I got realy mad but he said srry and kissed me and never spoke of it again. That's y we have been dating so long. Our love never changed cuz we no how to forgive. Just a little advice cuz I h8te when people break up. It breaks my heart :(

    Okay, so. This song is totally awesome. I do agree with what people said before, about a couple that arent working out so well, but it might have a deeper meaning. That maybe the guy lost someone close to him, that he is done pretending he's ok. He wants to find the person he lost, take him or her with him. He wants that person with him in his part of the world. He wants to fill that empty space left behind, but there isn't any way that he can, unless he finds that person. Losing tha person pushed him into. Depression? Anger? Emotions he isn't used to and uncomfortable with and he doesn't know how to cope and he needs that person he lost to help him with it maybe.

    There is no communication, either from one or both partners. It's simply easier to pretend that nothing is wrong, than to face the facts and realize that what is wrong is that neither of them can change enough to make it work out. And then one day, someone wakes up and decides it's just too dysfunctional and that it's not enough to simply go through the motions anymore, and tries to move on. There is no resolution, so the loss is unbearably sad, but at the same time, it's a relief to finally admit it, and move on. At least that's what it means to me.
