KATE:
There's a fine, fine line
Between a lover and a friend
And there's a fine, fine line
Between reality and pretend
And you never know 'til you reach the top
If it was worth the uphill climb
There's a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of time

There's a fine, fine line
Between a fairytale and a lie
And there's a fine, fine line
Between "you're wonderful" and "goodbye"
I guess if someone doesn't love you back
It isn't such a crime
But there's a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of your time

And I don't have the time to waste on you any more
I don't think you even know what you're looking for
For my own sanity I've got to close the door
And walk away

There's a fine, fine line
Between together and not
And there's a fine, fine line
Between what you wanted and what you got
You gotta go after the things you want
While you're still in your prime
But there's a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of time

    General Commenti used to get death glares from my boyfriend before we were together cuz i am capable to match kate's voice style and it'd piss him off cuz i'd be using me headphones so he just thought I sucked at singing. XD

    anyways. This song is extremely beautiful.

    I don't think this song needs an explanation since it's pretty damn straight forward; but she's sitting there comparing life to make believe. and from seeing the musical explains a lot too (amazing to see btw<3 ) she wants princeton back and knows she cant. and she wants to get over him, but knows that's an impossible task.

    it's really early in the morning so my thought process isn't exactly at 100% even for my favorite song D:

    General CommentThis song touches a really deep part of me. I knew a girl named Jessica in a very scary place and she would sing this to me to help me feel better...after we were both out she'd sing this over the phone to hlp me fall asleep...we aren't togeher anymore but just reading the lyrics gives me chills. Brilliance.
