"It Must Have Been Love" as written by and Per Hakan Gessle....
Lay a whisper on my pillow
Leave the winter on the ground
I wake up lonely, is there a silence
In the bedroom and all around

Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out

Make believing we're together
That I'm sheltered by your heart
But in and outside I turn to water
Like a teardrop in your palm

And it's a hard winter's day
I dream away

It must have been love, but it's over now
It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without
It must have been love, but it's over now
It's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out

    MemoryReminds me of a very tumultuous relationship I had with an amazing woman. In the end, her parents were right, I was not ready to settle down, and she was better without me back then. She went on a lived her life, got married, had a child, and I moved on as well, got married and all.. but part of me always wishes I could have been a better man back then and loved her the right way, instead of screwing around and ruining it 3 days before we were to be married.

    The memory of this song, plays like a scene from a movie. We had broken up, and I was working in a mall in NY. She came to visit me to patch things up yet again, and as she came down the escalator in the mall I watched her, oddly enough this song was playing on the malls music system. We did manage to patch things up and stay together (Even lived together for a while) but she told me this song made her so sad when we did break up.

    I just wish I could have done right by her, she deserved better. Thankfully I grew up normal and now have a great life and a great wife that I love very much... but the song still makes me sad for the pain I caused back then.

    General CommentPeople always have a choice. Sometimes they regret it immediately because sometimes our decisions cross boundaries that should never be crossed. But if you have no regrets than so be it because sometimes the truth needs to be told. Some people are not use to being put in their place because they're use to being in control and can't tolerate someone whose not submissive. Maybe the person was wrong about them but only was trying to make a point based of their behavior. If they're not the person who they described maybe they'll show them. If they are it's not someone you'd want anyhow. Just sayin

    General CommentThis song is about wishing for the return of a lover. You go to sleep and you can dream about them yet when you wake up their gone. Life can be so cruel sometimes.
