"One Short Story" as written by and Xavier Rudd....
He was a boy
Who felt like a man
She was a girl
From a far away land
Far more beautiful
Than the picture in his hand
She had eyes
That would draw him in
They took a plane ride
Together they would find
Her long lost smile
They went home again
Back to her friends
Back to repair her heart

He loved this girl
With all of his heart
He wanted her mind
Her secrets and her trust

She would never do him any harm
He'd give her the world
If it sat in his palm

One rainy day
It was dark in the sky
She turned and she said to him
With grey in her eyes

Go home again
Go back to your friends
Go back and repair your heart
Go home again
Go back to your friends
Go back and repair your heart

His heart turned to liquid
And it trickled from his eyes
All he could do now
At this point in his life

Was to go home again
Back to his friends
Back to repair his heart
Go home again
Go back to your friends
Go back and repair your heart

    General Commentthis song is soo sad

    obviously a love song...
    i guess her family or friends disagreed of him...
    and his of her???
    and she felt guilty making them both part? so she told him to go fix his *heart* his relationship with them

    General Commentgirl moves from home and becomes lonely, meets boy who makes her happy but she is still home sick- together they go to her home where she is complete but she doesn't need him anymore and it crushes him when she tells him.

    I think it is a story about young lovers who have two different paths, they cross briefly and both are happy but the girl needs more and boys love, although grand, doesn't do it. She sends him home to repair his heart, hoping he will find there what she found in hers.

    incredibly sound and touching

    General CommentThis song is pretty much the same as my relationship
    We met very young and fell in love very quickly, I moved across the country to be with him and we were very much in love for a number of years but eventually we realised that because of the move from everything i'd known, we'd become too dependent on each other. We are currently taking a break to work on ourselves as individuals and hope to be together again in the future because we are still very much in love. With young love you tend to fall head over heels very quickly without considering the implications and like the song, it causes a lot of relationships to then fall apart
