"How Can I Not Love You" as written by and Edmonds/fenton/kraft....
Cannot touch, cannot hold, cannot be together
Cannot love, cannot kiss, cannot have each other
Must be strong and we must let go
Cannot say what our hearts must know

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you
Here in my arms
How does one waltz away
From all of the memories
How do I not miss you
When you're gone

Cannot dream, cannot share, sweet and tender moments
Cannot feel, how we feel, must pretend it's over
Must be brave and we must go on
Must not say what we've known all alone

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you
Here in my arms
How does one waltz away
From all of the memories
How do I not miss you
When you're gone

    General Commentthis has been one of my favorite songs for years now. it's so heartfelt and moving. a friend of mine sent this to me...damn, so many years ago, when her boyfriend disappeared for awhile. I believe I cried when I first listened to it, I was so touched. I still feel a bit choked up whenever I listen to it.

    "how do I not miss you when you are gone?
    how can I not love you when are gone?"

    I believe we've all asked this at least once in our lives.

    My InterpretationI think, this song is about the relationship which is not approved by singer's parents/family. The man and woman love each other. But, they can't have each other. The singer try to explain her ex, not she who want to break up (from the lyrics "How can I not love you", "When do I not want you". She still in loves with him, because the memories still remains in her mind, dream, etc.
