"Impossible (Feat. Alicia Keys)" as written by and Alicia J Augello-cook....
It's impossible,
It's impossible to love you
If you don't, let me know, what you're feeling
It's impossible, for me to give you what you need
If you're always hidin it from me
I don't know what hurts you
I just, I want to make it right
'Cause boy I'm sick and tired of trying to read your mind

'Cause it's impossible
Oh, baby it's impossible
For me to love you, this way
It's impossible
Oh baby it's impossible
If you're making it this way
(if you keep treating me this way
Over, and over)

Impossible to make it easy
If you're always trying to make it so damn hard
How can I, how can I, give you all my love baby
If you're always, always putting up your guard
This is not a circus
Don't ya play me for a clown
How long can emotions keep on going up and down

'Cause it's impossible
Oh, baby it's impossible
For me to love you, this way
It's impossible
Oh baby it's impossible
If you're making it this way
(if you keep treating me this way
Over, and over)

    General CommentThis song is my favourite on the Stripped album, so gorgeous! It's pretty self explanitory - about a girl who can't give all her love to her 'lover' because he isn't giving her anything back. He's not providing her with any emotion to work with and she doesn't have a clue how he's feeling about her.

    General CommentI agree mmbs! I am dedicating this song for someone actually. But Christina released the diva in her in this song. She sang it beautifully! She's a tru diva, for me. I agree with FighterNZL too!

    But, if I may say so...

    JOHN LENNON FOREVER!!!!!

    General CommentI agree with all of you! Stripped is a great album. This song really relates to a lot of people I think. In the sense that at least once in our lives we love someone that just doesn't give us anything to work with, they either can't or won't love us back for whatever reasons. You get sick of wondering how they're feeling towards you.
    The song says it just right.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about being in a girl who's in a relationship with a man who doesn't tell their her how he feels. He keeps his emotions inside and it makes it impossible for her to love him properly.
