I never expected you
to love me
The way I loved you
I never expected you
to love me
The way I loved you
To have you near
Was all I wanted
Just to have you near

It's funny how you can forget
There's a world outside yourself
Where the trees keep growing
And the cars keep moving
Without you there
And it's funny how you can forget
There's a world outside yourself
Where the one who loves you keeps on living
Without you there

I never expected you
to love me
The way I loved you

    General Commenti love the line
    "It's funny how you can forget
    There's a world outside yourself"
    it's so true &shows the selfishness that people don't realize everyone has.

    General CommentIts a wonderful song about just loving a person for who they are, romantically or not, and you never expected or cared for them to love you as strongly back... but when you find out they do, its the most wonderful feeling. But of course, it's also tough to be apart from this person because of this... which i think is what the song is saying.

    General CommentAzure Ray makes me feel so much it. This song is a beautiful tearful amazingly perfect song. The lines are perfect and their voices are prefect. The lines 'Where the one who loves you keeps on living without you there" makes me feel so tight inside of myself for fear that so many of us get caught up living for ourselves and only ourselves and our hearts are not with them always. Love makes connections exist forever wether we're with the people we love or not. We take them into ourselves and they take us into themselves and we're inspererable even by time or space, death or life.

    General CommentThis is so sad.
    'Where the one you love keeps on living, Without you there'
    This line makes me weep. Or at least struggle to stop my eyes from getting watery.

    I think its about a relationship ruined by her own insecurity of his/her love, her own lack of self esteem. She finds out that he loved her as much as she loved him after its too late, hence the whole 'keeps on living/growing/moving without you there' parts. Its about how painful and sad and hard it is to be away from someone you love. About loss. Nothing new, but this is an amazing song.

    :(
