"Alien" as written by and Chris Healey....
Every hour, every day
Isn't nature denied?
In a world where it rains
You're the sun in the sky

But I can't bear to see you
'Cause I can't bear the pain
And I can't heal the wounds
'Cause I still can't explain

Why I feel like an alien
Not part of the human race
When my heart wants to burst
At the sight of your face

I feel like I'm suffering
From a beautiful disease
When your sad pretty smile
Brings me down to my knees

Such a simple thing
It should be such a simple thing
You can call me confused
All that I can confess

Is I can't come to terms
Settle for something less
Will I feel this emotion
Till the day that I die?

And go to my grave
Still wondering why
I feel like an alien...

    My InterpretationThis can be about any love that won't work. Whether one person is uninterested, or society opposes. It talks about love and feeling like you aren't normal for it. It's that lonely kind of love.

    Maybe not necessary unrequited, but this can be taken very literally to be a match that everyone frowns upon, or a lot of people frown upon. Of course, I also heard this in the background of the controversial tv love story of Coffee Prince--one man thinks he is falling in love with another and, feels like an alien due to the intense homophobia he will have to get over in his society, and within himself.

    An alien, literally not like anyone else around you. It's a desolate love in any case.

    "Is nature denied?" Then again, all societies frown on love in some way, even the ones that they say are correct, don't go being too passionate, and doing what your nature and your lover want.
