"Darlin'" as written by and Ryan Kirkland Wesley Anderson....
This call is meant to be brief
A simple hello ending with goodbye
Then you say hello
Now, I am melting
And now my goodbye
Becomes a goodnight
I don't mind if you don't mind
Please say you do not mind if this call
Goes on all night
Cause I have more to say
My afternoon was O.K.
My evening was fine but this night
I want it to be the best night
Of our lives

Sweet Darling
This is my confession to
The crimes of wanting you badly
And Darlin' if you're wondering
Here's your answer
Yes I like you
I don't love you
I can't love you
Yet

These calls are getting longer
And these nights go on
And on and on forever
I do believe I'm getting better
Knowing you
Hopefully all of you
Sitting watching movies
We both know I do not watch a bit of it
Cause I am much too busy
Leaving my hand close enough
So you'll hold it

Sweet Darling
This is my confession to
The crimes of wanting you badly
And Darlin' if you're wondering
Here's your answer
Yes I like you
I don't love you
I can't love you

And I can not stop thinking about you
I can not stop wondering
If you're constantly
Thinking about me
Don't close your eyes dear I'm still staring
I won't lie dear I'm still breathing
Even though your beauty is breath taking

Sweet Darling
This is my confession to
The crimes of wanting you badly
And Darlin' if you're wondering
Here's your answer
Yes I like you
I can't love you
I can't love you
Oh at least I don't think I do
Yet

    General CommentAlso, this song really means a lot to me, because it sort of helped me admit something to myself. There's a guy who's one of my best friends, and I started liking him, but every time someone else would use the word "love" to describe how I felt I'd just deny it. But hearing this song during that time, I really identified with the lyrics... and I realized the more someone says they "can't" love someone else, the more it means that they do love them.

    General CommentOkay, obviously this song needs some comments :).

    This song is sung with such strong vocals and its lyrics really touch deep.

    Explanation: He's falling in love with her a little more everytime he talks to her, or looks at her, or thinks about her. She's becoming a big part of his life, and he's not sure if he's okay with this. He "can't love her."

    He kind of always knew there was attraction, but he doesn't want to fall in love with her for whatever reason. And at the end he just sort of accepts he's falling [fast] and there is nothing he can do about it.

    It's gorgeous. And if you stumble upon this song
    (or band) by mistake. Go to their purevolume(/betweenthetrees) site to see their amazing music and hear this song. Or go to their myspace site. (/betweenthetrees).

    Much appreciated, they deserve more exposure than they're getting.

    General CommentI think it's about getting asked the age old question, do you love me? And he initially doesn't believe he is in love and as time goes on he begins to really fall for her. No matter what it really means this is such a powerful and beautiful song, done by an amazing band, which I agree is not getting as much exposure as they deserve.

    General CommentYeah. Those are the correct lyrics.

    Also, the original song (before the CD) was better.

    General CommentLovely song. I pretty much agree with your-my-starr's interpetation. It reminds me of someone very special to me. The conversations we used to have were amazing. Everytime we talked, I'd fall in love with him more and more. Sighs.

    Anyway. I love Between The Trees. They're kind of underrated and they need WAY more recognition because they have talent. Real talent.

    General CommentTHE REAL MEANING

    I was just at their show and there is a story. The singer wrote it to a girl who he liked but she thought he was in love with her but really he wasnt. Heliked being with her. Not putting down what could be, but hes not in love with her.
