You can't know, oh no
You can't know
How much I think about you, no
It's making my head spin
Looking at you
And you are looking at me
And we both know what we want
Hmm, so close to giving in

Feel so nice
Oh yeah you feel so nice
Wish I could spend the night
But I can't pay the price
Oh no, no

But I'm flying so high
High off the ground
When you're around
And I can feel your high
Rocking me inside
It's too much to hide

I know, oh yes
I know that we can't
Be together
But, I just like to dream
It's so strange
The way our paths have crossed
How we were brought together
Hmm, it's written in the stars it seems
Feel so nice
Oh yeah you feel so nice
I'd love to spend the night
But I can't pay the price
Oh no, no

And I'm flying so high
High off the ground
When you're around
And I can feel your high
Touching me inside
And it's too much to hide

Back to earth
Where did you take me to
I know there's no such thing
As painless love
Well it'll catch us up
And we can never win
But oh
I feel so alive
Oh
Just want to hold you
Hold you so tight

And I'm flying so high
High off the ground
When you're around
And I can feel your high
Touching me inside
And it's too much to hide
And I'm flying so high
High off the ground
When you're around

    General Comment:This song is actually about a friend of hers who passed away.

    And I'm crying so hard right now, listening to it. Knowing the only boy I've ever loved has just died, and all I want is to spend one more night with him.

    General Comment:what if the guy she loves died? i know it's tragical, but this way it makes sense the fact that they're kinda meant to be "it's written on the stars it seems" but that they can't be together.

    maybe, when she says the price is too high for her to pay, she means that she'd have to be dead to so they can't be together, but she doesn't wanna die, so it's a very high price for her to pay.

    i don't know, it's just another point of view :)

    General Comment:I can't believe no one has commented on this song, it's awesome. It's just so beautiful. To me its telling a love story about a woman cheating on her boyfriend/husband. The part where she says "Would spend the night but I can't pay the price" means that she wants to stay the night but she can't because she knows it's wrong... that's what it means to me.

    General Comment:But ohhh
    I feel so alive
    ohhh
    Just wanna hold you
    hold you so tight

    These lines and the feeling behind the way they're sung hit me harder than anything I've ever heard before.

    General Comment:I don't know if the song is about cheating persay but it is definitely related to not being able to be with someone when there are mutual feelings, for who knows what reason.

    General Comment:I just think it is about someone who just makes you feel so special, you float off the ground when they are around... unexplainable feelings... but for whatever reason you just can't be with them.

    General Comment:It sounds like a reference to Romeo and Juliet in this part:
    I know, oh yes
    I know that we can’t
    be together
    but, I just like to dream
    It’s so strange
    the way our paths have crossed
    how we were brought together
    hmmm, it’s written in the stars it seems

    Romeo and Juliet crossed paths at the party, which Romeo would have never gone to if his cousin han't talked him into going. Romeo and Juliet were also called star-crossed lovers.

    General Comment:i dont think anyones cheating but i think thier love shouldnt be. maybe theres an age difference or like theyre suppose to be friends or sumthing. its really pretty tho. shes got such a great voice.

    General Comment:I think it could be about being in a really good relationship but the part where she says < I know, oh yes, I know that we can’t be together but, I just like to dream> could maybe be the fact that they have a long distance between them and can't see each ther for while. That's just a suggestion but I also agree with chelsea12's ideas too. ^^
