"Too Much Love" as written by and Roger F./greenaway Cook....
If I didn't forget you
My heart would explode

Yeah. There is too much love
Yeah way too much love
The last thing we need is to miss
The last thing we need is this

I will never regret you
It kills you to know

Yeah there is too much love
Yeah way too much love
The last thing we need is to miss
The last thing we need is this

Yeah. There is too much love
Yeah way too much love

    Song MeaningThis song is about breaking up and struggling to move on past the pain.

    Either he was dumped, or it was mutual, because he still loves her ("Yeah there is too much love/Yeah way too much love").

    More than likely, though, the situation was that his girl fell out of love with him, and she just wants him to let her go, even if it means him having negative thoughts toward her, but he loves her too much ("I will never regret you/It kills you to know").

    He misses her, and she potentially still misses him, too, but since she no longer loves him, it'd be a different type of missing. He recognizes that this is contributing to his/their pain ("The last thing we need is to miss/The last thing we need is this").

    So, he knows that in order to move on, he must forget her, or else his broken heart is going to drive him insane ("If I didn't forget you/My heart would explode"). He's just having a really difficult time, because there is "Too Much Love."

    Thank you, Advanced English, for teaching me about lyrical subtext interpretation, and thank you, ex-girlfriends, for causing me enough pain to be able to relate to this song enough to identify its meaning.

    General Commenti think maybe they need to break up... take a short hyatus but they dont want too... their hearts are too fond but their emotional state just needs to relax..."if i didnt forget you my heart would explode"... he thinks about her too much and goes freaking insane.
