in the rain
i'm walking slowly
there's a light
in your apartment
i don't know why
i ache for you

and its alright if
youre undecided
or if youre scared
that you might like it
or if its true
i ache for you

theres no rhyme
and theres no reason
youre the secret in the back of my skull
theres no logic
so please believe me
our love's confusing
but it never gets dull

its getting late
anticipation
and if we talk
communication
and then you'll know
i ache for you

and yeah sometimes
its just desire
another problem that you really dont want
but anyway
i ache for you

theres no rhyme
and theres no reason
you know the secret in the back of my skull
theres no logic
so please believe me
my love's confusing
but it never gets dull
i ache for you

and im tired
of so much wanting
and what if -
dont even think it
but why not?

theres no rhyme
and theres no reason
you put a secret in the back of my skull
theres no logic
so please believe me
my love's confusing
but it never gets dull

theres no rhyme
and theres no reason
youre the secret in the back of my skull
theres no logic
so please believe me
my love's confusing
but it never gets dull

i ache for you

    General CommentHA. I love this song too.
    It makes me dream of happy stuff... and its sad aswell.

    This song is 'just'. Really, i think people would love it.

    I like how he changes the "Secret in the back of my skull" line.
    Um.. I listened to this song about 500000000 times over and over again. Yeah, its great.

    General Commentits so warm, and fragile, and giddy, and melodic, so many things at once. Its delicate and wonderful............. cant explain it enough.

    General CommentOk, well now seriously... I love this song because the fact that he aches isn't something bad. The aching is the yearning for someone, and I love the line "there's no logic/so please believe me/my love's confusing/but it never gets dull." Love is what is it, and they should both enjoy it together. =D

    General CommentOne of the few Ben Lee songs I like.

    Sincere, hopeful, pretty darn real. Can relate to this, and I'd probably sing it if the right girl came along.

    It's the whole thought process thing. Sweet.

    General CommentI definitely think that this song isnt about being in a relationship. In the first verse he talks about walking past her place and looking inside aching for her. Aching is painful.

    Then:
    "and its alright if
    youre undecided
    or if youre scared"
    Saying that its okay if she isnt ready to feel the way he feels about her yet. But he still wants her.

    then he goes on about how he doesnt know why he loves her, but he does. And that shes a secret in his mind.

    I feel that if they were in a relationship he wouldnt need to walk past her apartment, or keep it a secret. And at the end he says that he ache's for her a few more times. The song feels like its hopeful, but not totally happy and loving.
