you were the one who helped me survive, i barely knew your name
you were the one who helped me divide my heart from feeling pain
when you are here, i have to smile, i love your every word
you are the one, you are the only one i could ever want to love
it must have been the time you swore to me, we live and learn that even love's not free
and if a bird has wings don't nail it to the floor, "it's only love" you said
well, excuse me, is there something else worth living for?

i can see now i can see you, you're everything to me
i can see now i can see you, you're everything to me
and i'll never let you down, and i'll never let you down

when you came around i wondered if i would ever be the same
now that you're here, beautiful boy, i barely know his name
when i'm alone and think of your smile, it gets me through the day
you are the one, you are the only one who could take him from my mind

what happened to the way we almost cared? what happened to the love we almost shared?
i never recognize my treasures till there gone, but now i realize
that you're the one that i've been loving for so long

i can see now i can see you, you're everything to me
i can see now i can see you, you're everything to me
and i'll never let you down, and i'll never let you down

    General CommentFirst listen, I thought it was a love song. If you ignore the male lyrics, it is a love song. Then taking a look at the lyrics and a close listen, I was shocked that it is really quite sad of a song.
    Try listening to it with this in mind:
    She is singing to a new love.
    Her ex is singing to her.
