It is not the past few days
That have made me feel this way
And it is not the tiny marks of doubt
That cover everything I see
It is just the way she looks at me
With a love so complete
That I have never seen
And from this grows a strong, undying guilt
The feeling of regret for things I never felt
But oh, I wanted to change
And become what she needs
I know what she needs
What I can never be

    General Comment I cant believe that no one has said anything about this song yet. These lyrics are unbelievable. It's about a boy who has a girl head over heals for him but knows that he could never feel the same way about here. Ugh... I know a guy who could sing this song for me. Evil...

    General Commentwell this girl falls for this guy and he has no feelings at all for her. he wants to be there for her but as much as he tries, he can't.

    General Commenti dont think it necessarily means he doesnt have feelings for her, maybe just that he knows he can't give her what she needs

    General Comment"and feelings of regret for things i never felt"

    the honesty of this line gets to me every time. He knows that he's "supposed to" love her, but he just can't feel that way... don't we all know how that feels?
