"A Different Corner" as written by and George Michael....
I'd say love was a magical thing
I'd say love would keep us from pain
Had I been there, had I been there

I would promise you all of my life
But to lose you would cut like a knife
So I don't dare, no I don't dare

'Cause I've never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
And I'm so scared, I'm so scared

Take me back in time maybe I can forget
Turn a different corner and we never would have met
Would you care

I don't understand it, for you it's a breeze
Little by little you've brought me to my knees
Don't you care

No I've never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
I'm so scared of this love

And if all that there is, is this fear of being used
I should go back to being lonely and confused
If I could, I would, I swear

    General CommentNo comments on this song? It's gorgeous.

    Anyways, it's pretty self-explanatory. He's scared to death of falling in love with this person because he's never been in love before, and he's afraid of being hurt.

    General CommentThis is one of the saddest songs ever sung. A great song. I think it's about him being in love with someone who doesn't love him as much...maybe it's over and he's NOT over it...but the other person is. He regrets getting into the situation because it was so hurtful to be over.

    General CommentThe subject of this song is either a young man, in his teens, who just learnt the meaning of being in love, or an adult man that has been experiencing the illusion of love, instead of love itself. That seems to me a good explanation for the fear that is repeatedly confessed.
    Anyone caught in the same situation as the one discribed here, knows that the feeling of being in love does make one say things that were never expected to be said. Some of those things we say them out loud...
    Regardless of the age and experience of the lover, love does make you think, do, and feel things even against your will, plan or life project. Things seem to get out of one's grip. The good news is, loosing the grip over whaterver one was convinced that one had the grip on, is the only scary thing about love.
    If one cares to try to just "let go" or "slide", then it's most probable that you actually start to feel that your life is in your hands. Love has then just handed you the wheel. "Put your hands on the wheel, let the golden age begin" a wised up man said.
