"You" as written by and Regina Spektor....
Never give up loving unless you have to
Never give up loving unless you must
'Cause it will haunt you in the future
It'll try to crawl in your bed at night

Never leave your lover unless he makes you
By being cold and awful mean
Even then, you'll probably always miss him
He will visit in your dreams

Names and dates and faces
Places you were happy
I'll never fall, never fall like that again
I'll never fall, never fall like that again
I'll never fall, never fall like that again

Names and dates and faces
Places you were happy
I'll never fall, never fall like that again
I'll never fall, never fall like that again
I'll never fall, never fall like that again

Never give up loving unless you have to
Never leave your lover unless you must
'Cause he will haunt your empty heart forever
'Til your body turns to dust

I want you, I want you, I want you

    General CommentI've been slowly collecting Regina songs like this one, (that aren't available on cd.... And I FINALLY got this one. I had seen and read the lyrics before I got a hold of it though, so I was quite surprised at how upbeat the song sounds. I had imagined it to be quite slow and sad, something along the lines of Samson or Genuis Next Door or Blue Lips... Maybe that's her way of putting her tounge-in-cheek....

    I really think that the lyrics are so moving though....

    General CommentI love this song. It's saying that you shouldn't do something you think you might regret, like leaving someone, especially someone whom you fell for really hard.

    General CommentI dont think its so much not to break up with them, just that it will be hard. "he makes you by being cold and awful mean" - its something that must be done, even though you know you love them and that they will forever haunt you. Beautiful song, I saw her live last week and I wish she'd played it... check out "silly eye colour generalization" though, she played it then and twas wonderful!

    General CommentI don't think it's necessarily saying you shouldn't leave someone. Leaving someone is inevitable. I feel like this song is about the first time you ever fall in love with someone in particular. "I'll never fall like that again." Yeah you'll fall in love again, but it'll never be the same as that first time.
    Also, names and dates and faces, places you were happy-- it's like when you go back to places that you went with them you'll always be reminded of them. And certain dates will have the same effect too.
    It's just such a wonderful song. All the lyrics are really simple and straightforward and it just...comes together perfectly.

    General CommentI LOVE these lyrics soooo much!
    I want to hear this song but I can't find it ANYWHERE.
    Does anyone know where I can find it?

    General Commenti believe this song is saying never rush to try and get over your love, unless you absolutely have to, because if you try to rush out of it it'll come back and bite you in the ass. They will then continue to haunt you becuase your love for them never really went away, you just forced it to the side.

    "'Cause he will haunt your empty heart forever
    'Til your body turns to dust"

    and then you'll never be able to love another in the same way again.

    General CommentI just love this song,

    it's just about forgiving,

    ¬ leaving someone, unless it's necessary

    because all the what if's will haunt you
