She walks in my room and closes the door
She looks in my eyes and finds the person I've been searching for
And darling I miss you, yeah I miss you so much ...

What is this world that we're living in? Why can't we just be friends?
What is this world that we're dreaming in? Does this have to be the end?

She's like a glass of water in the middle of night
Cold yet understanding, she makes me feel alright
And darling I miss you, yeah I miss you so much ...

What is this world that we're living in? Why can't we just be friends?
What is this world that we're dreaming in? Does this have to be the end?

The end? The end?
Darling forgive me. I'm changing so much ...

What is this world that we're living in? Why can't we just be friends?
What is this world that we're dreaming in? Does this have to be the end?

And darling I miss you ... so much

    General CommentI can't put my finger on the meaning of this song. Obviously about him thinking his partner is so close to him, and he misses her, yet he doesn't want her to be anymore than friends. 'She's like a glass of water in the middle of night' justifies this. She's making him feel alright, yet not spectacular, but she can still support him. In spite of this, he can't just be friends with her, because morales and values get in the way, or something like that is stopping them from being just friends. Which is why he exclaims 'what is this world that we're living in!?'
