"Who Makes You Feel" as written by and Dido/harrison Armstrong....
I don't touch you the way I used to
And I don't call and write when I'm away
We don't make love as often as we did do
What couldn't wait now waits and usually goes away
But listen and think when I say, oh but listen and think when I say

Who makes you feel the way I make you feel
Who loves you and knows you the way I do
Who touches you and holds you quite like I do
Who makes you feel like I make you feel

I don't mind if you come home late
And I don't ever ask you where you have you've been
I just assume if there's a problem, you'd tell me
But listen and think when I say, oh but listen and think when I say

Who makes you feel the way I make you feel
Who loves you and knows you the way I do
Who touches you and holds you quite like I do
Who makes you feel like I make you feel

Being weak, when I am strong
Being seen, for who you are
Being sad and lost but not alone
But listen and think when I say, oh but listen and think when I say

Who makes you feel the way I make you feel
Who loves you and knows you the way I do
Who touches you and holds you quite like I do
Who makes you feel like I make you feel

    General CommentLOVE THIS SONG

    at first i thought of it as her talking to her partner about how their relationships might not be as epic as it was at first, but it's lasting and beautiful and that they make each other feel the way no other can.

    but then after reading comments i wonder if it IS her confronting him as in - who is making you feel the way i make you feel? Who knows you the way i do?
    Who is the other girl you have ?
    Which seems fitting with the extra "who? who?" like it's interrogating.

    But i also really like the song as a "by the way, if you are thinking of cheating, remember that no one can make you feel the way i do."

    Anyways, awesome song. as usual.

    General CommentI think it's about reminding yourself and your partner why you fell in love in the first place. Sure, things aren't as frantic/passionate as in the beggining, but that doesn't mean the love is gone.

    General CommentI think the lines are, "Being seen for who you are... Being sad and lost, but not alone."

    General CommentThis song is about a couple who are no longer as close as they once was, and who perhaps stay together because they're used to each other although they have grown apart. I think the bridge ("But listen and think when I say it") explains that the intent behind the chorus is that she believes he has found someone else. She's asking who is it he is seeing that makes him feel the way she used to, the way she believes she may still make him feel.

    I think this song is about a woman confronting her partner, sutbly, about whether or not he is having an affair. Listen and think.

    General CommentWhat do you all interpret from the following lines?

    "Being weak when I am strong
    Being seen, who you are
    Being sad and love's not alone"

    General CommentI'm hearing this song in a whole different way now. I always imagined that she was speaking to her mate about their short of perfect relationship, but convincing him that they're still good for each other. However, after reading several comments, I've taken on a new understanding....

    It sounds as if it's a two-person dialogue....

    (What HE is telling her about herself and the relationship):
    I don't touch you the way I used to
    And I don't call and write when I'm away
    We don't make love as often as we did do
    Couldn't wait, now waits and it usually goes away

    (What SHE is now saying in answer/defense of how he feels):
    But listen and think when I say it
    Oh but listen and think when I say it

    Who makes you feel the way that I make you feel
    Who loves you and knows you the way I do
    Who touches you and holds you quite like I do
    Who makes you feel like I make you feel

    And the same goes for the following verses and chorus.

    Truth is, men say they don't like their woman asking after their whereabouts, but honestly, they get concerned if she doesn't. At least they feel cared for when she inquires where they've been. Maybe the guy in this song was feeling neglected or ignored by her, but she's trying to assure him that is not the case.
