"If Only" as written by Alex Band and Aaron Kamm Kamin....
What's the way of love?
Tell me your fiction
Tell me your lies
Say to me now you'll never forget this night
I'm feeling emotionless
My head's so clear
My enemies aren't the ones I fear
You know your kiss confuses
This troubling soul
And I found out
That we're all breaking hearts
That we're all broken hearts

If only love could find us all
If only hearts didn't have to fall
We can't mislead to make things right
So instead we'll sleep alone tonight

What's the way of love
You are thinking I'm crazy
But you're blushing of lust
I've heard a lot of nice things
But tell me which ones I'm to trust
These wall we made are glass
And they have been known to crack
But until then
You'll keep pushing my way
And I'll keep pushing you away

If only love could find us all
If only hearts didn't have to fal
We can't mislead to make things right
So instead we'll sleep alone tonight

If you want to take a chance
And try to make things right
You better have a reason to be loved
We all want something more
And it is worth fighting for

If only love could find us all
If only hearts didn't have to fall
We can't mislead to make things right
So instead we'll sleep alone tonight

And if fate were in my hands
Would it be enough to understand
Why we feel lost in a world so small
If only love could find us all

    General CommentThe man in this song, I believe, has been in too many relationships. He's been in love many times and each time he believes that he has found his true love only to end with a broken heart. Now he has met a new 'flame' and he has realized that though she may not be like any of his old girlfriends the relationship will most likely end in heartache. She keeps making moves on him, but he pushes her away because he is afraid of another broken heart

    He realizes that he isn't the only one who can't find their true love. ( "And I found out That we're all breaking hearts That we're all broken hearts")
    And he expresses his wish that everyone could find that one person whom they could love forever. But he knows that not many are willing to work that hard and most are filled with lust and greed which keeps them from true love("We can't mislead to make things right") and that we are detined to be alone or unhappy if we do end up with someone

    Everyone is looking for love and that love is worth giving up everything for("We all want something more
    And it is worth fighting for...")

    MY FAV Calling SONG!!!
    I love this part:
    And if somehow fate were in my hands
    Would it be enough to understand
    Why we feel lost in a world so small
    If only love could find us all...

    General Commenti think that, in a nutshell, it's about a person who wants to open his heart to love but is afraid of intimacy.
