Give me a minute
I need a second
Got to breathe there
It's Just one of those things

wish I could tell you
How much I need you
And how much you
need me to go

Please don't listen
to what I'm gonna tell you
Look in my eyes and know
I simply had to give up
But I didn't let go without struggle
you know, I still love you
It's just, just one of those things

I know I made it seem
Like all was written down
And I hid all my pain
And now I bring it out

And you'll be scared at first
cuz it's such an ugly blow
I don't know which is worse
to learn or not to know

Please don't listen
to what I'm gonna tell you
Look in my eyes and know
I simply had to give up
But I didn't let go without struggle
you know, I still love you
It's just, just one of those things

Please don't listen
to what I'm gonna tell you
Look in my eyes and know
I simply had to give up
But I didn't let go without struggle
you know, I still love you
It's just, it's just one of those things

I tried to tell you a million times
That you have always been one of us
I tried to tell you a million times
You have always been one of us

Please don't listen
(I tried to tell you a million times
That you have always been one of us)
Please don't listen
(I tried to tell you a million times
That you have always been one of us)
PLease don't listen....

    General CommentMy take on the song:

    A girl feeling like she needs to leave a relationship, because it's putting a strain on her lover's life, and she cares for him so much that she doesn't want to bring him any troubles. So decides to end the relationship, even though she really loves him.

    Or maybe she left him because he had a bit of an inferiority complex?

    General CommentMeg wrote this song for Dia when she was going to college. So once you get that it's pretty self explainatory.

    General CommentSo now that I know Meg wrote it for Dia before college, it makes more sense, but beforehand, I always thought about the part "I don't know which is worse.. to learn or not to know," and figured...which is worse? Being in love, and then having to leave, and have learned from everything or never even knowing what love feels like, but not ending up with the heartbreak. Either way, this song's amazing.

    General Commenti think it's about how she's in love with someone, or loves someone...but she knows she's not good for them. especially the part where it says;
    wish I could tell you
    How much I need you
    And how much you
    need me to go

    that's like, she needs him and he's good for her, but he doesn't need her and all she's doing is bringing him down.

    and the "i didn't let go, without struggle you know" part is saying that she wanted to keep it going but she knew it would be selfish of her.

    saying "it's just one of those things" is she doesn't want to tell him why, she just wants to say that she loves him, but she has to let him go and that it's just one of those things..because if she says she's not good enough he'll argue.


    and the part;
    And I hid all my pain
    And now I bring it out

    i think means that he thought she was okay, and a happy person with no past hurt..but she's really been heartbroken, and she's corrupted and messed up, and that he didn't know..and now she's finally showing it.


    most of my reasons for what i think this song means is because i'm going through the SAME thing and when i heard this song i thought it fell in to place perfectly.

    General Commentduh the guy is gay...

    That you have always been one of us

    You have always been one of us"

    General CommentI don't think it's about a gay man at all. I think it's for a guy who didn't fit in with her friends or didn't feel like he fit in with her and her friends, and tried and failed, and even though she loved him, she has to let him go rather than see him ruin himself by trying to copy somebody. (Maybe it's about a drunk or a drug addict losing a lover before he descends into addiction.)

    General Commentwhen i first heard this song,
    i really loved a guy & he loved me back
    but he didnt want to make a commitment,

    "Please don't listen
    to what I'm gonna tell you
    Look in my eyes and know
    I simply had to give up
    But I didn't let go without struggle
    you know, I still love you"

    i reaally just wanted ot tell him
    i was over it. but i wasnt & but i felt
    the only way to get on with my life
    is to tell him i was done with him.


    and i really related to this song,
    even if it has nothing to do with what it was actually written about. :D!
    ammmazing song.
