"This Love" as written by and Romeo William Stodart....
Through the gates of lying she left
Through the years I've wept
Lying face down in the ground
And I can't hold you now

Why did I choose to refuse you
It's not that I used you
I left when I should have
Believed that I couldn't hold on
But you never let go
Or at least I think so

And if all I've got are these tears
Will the sun come up
And rid me of darkness again
Throw my hands up

Why did I choose to refuse you
It's not that I used you
And all of my words were withheld
And not heard, I did fall
But she never let go
Or at least I think so

Oooh, since you know that I'm here
Oooh, since you know that I'm here

And if all I want is a room with you
(This love, this heart, this is waking up)
To break down the windows and pull you through
(This love, this heart, this is waking up)
If all I see is an empty sky
To push you out from the snow
I don't want to know this love
I don't want to know
So I'll never have this love
I don't want to know

This love, this heart, this is waking up
This love, this heart, this is waking up
This love, this heart, this is waking up
This love, this heart, this is waking up
This love
Maybe we can wear this love
Maybe we can wear this love
Maybe we can wear this love
Maybe we can wear this love

Ooooh

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy regreting not loving a girl back.
    But then he realises she never let go,
    So at the end he wakes up to the fact that he's still got her?
    ikn.
    :]
    This song owns though.

    General CommentIsnt there some more lyrics at the end of this song? I think at the end he is waking up to the fact that he can never have her now because of the way he acted in the past, sorry to make it more depressing!

    General Commenti think this is a introspective song about someone who loses a lover because of their own deception. the thing is though she/he always loved this person but was probably immature to understand this fact or appreciate the meaning of being in love. i think "you never let go" is probably to demonstrate how the lover has a hold on the writer's heart and she/he finally realizes this and how he/she really feels.

    My InterpretationWhat I believe this song is about a guy who is now regretting letting go of a relationship. He is a coward because he did love her but he didn't tell. The reason why he didn't tell her was because love is a scary thing and that means you are letting that person in. That can be hard for some people, so instead of him being vulnerable, he pushes her away through lies. He is now hurting because he realized he committed a mistake, he should of never let her go. He is telling the girl that he didn't use her. He is telling her that the whole relationship wasn't just out of his pleasure or for his benefit. He is saying he really did care about her and still does. He realizes that she hasn't fully gone away, she is still waiting for him, at least that is what he is thinking. He asks himself why did he push her away? He held back his words, his truth, his love and he held back because he couldn't handle love. yet again, he is a coward. He admits that he is a coward saying that all he wants is a room with her and break the window of the house and let her in. This means he wants to let her in, he wants to break down all the barriers and let her in, but then he says that if he see's an empty sky and to push her out of the snow then he doesn't want to know this love. This means that once he let's her in he is scared that she won't love him (starless sky means that there is no more dreaming, enchantment which connects to love) and to push her out of the snow means that she is dead, like the love is dead because when you look at snow it is white, pure, cold, it connects to death. So he admits that if he lets her in and his fears comes true then he rather not have love at all, because he doesn't want to be vulnerable and get hurt. So now at the end of the song he chooses not to be loved or to love because of his cowardliness.I can relate to this song because I am dealing with a guy who is scared to let me in. We would get so close, but then he'll push me away because he gets scared of how close we are getting, but then he'll come back and push away again. At first I didn't know he was scared so I thought he was using me, I thought he was just dragging me along and i'll be around whenever he felt like coming around. But after I left him, I realized that he had never loved someone before, he never tells anyone how he truly feels, he is sensitive, and he even admitted that he feels vulnerable and he gets paranoid and scared so he becomes distant. But by the way he looks at me I know he does love me, he doesn't have to say it. We are back together now, I just hope he will eventually let me in.
