I’ve been watching you
Not waiting for the right moment to make the first move
Do you want to know
Why I keep avoiding your eyes
And why I’m running away?
It’s crazy, I know

I’ve been conceiving you for too long

Or maybe I’m destined to be alone?
Or maybe there’s someone who will understand
That I’m not able to share my world?
I’m still running away
It’s crazy, I know

I’ve been conceiving you for too long
If only I could change all things around

Still conceiving you all along…

I’ve been conceiving you for too long
If only I could change all things around
I’ve been conceiving you for too long
I’ve grown used to that

Still conceiving you all along…

    My InterpretationTo me it's quite self explanatory... It is about someone who just got used to watching someone from a distance, imagining them, and feels unable to change the thoughts into reality, to actually meet them when there is a chance. Imagination is just safer and more comfortable. "I've grown used to that"... And the person could be autistic, sure, but doesn't really have to. Maybe it's all driven by fear. Anyone can be this fearful.

    General CommentSomehow lyrics of this song make me think of an autistic person. A person who doesn't know how to share a life with others, but still wishes to do it. Those who know more about autism, will also know that people suffering from this disorder actually want someone who will understand them.

    General CommentSounds like someone with an unacquainted love. They love someone but are fearful of actually making a move.

    Sometimes the thought is more ideal than the reality too. That is what you conceive may be better than anything you can actually realise.
