Did you know that you were leaving when you first told me your name
Convince me that you loved me while planning your escape
Always looking past me on to someone elses face tell me

Is he all the things you tried to change me into
Tell me

Does he make you high / Does he make you real
Does he make you cry / Does he know the way you feel
Love is all around you / your universe is full
But in My World there is only you

Kept me at arms distance while you told me you want more
Plans about our future made with one foot out the door
You say that its over but therere some things I cant ignore tell me..

Is he all the things you tried to change me into

Does he make you high / Does he make you real
Does he make you cry / Does he know the way you feel
Love is all around you / your universe is full
But in My World there is only you

I had my fears / you let them out
Now I wrap myself around you like a blanket full of doubt
The darkness burns / the sunlight stings
Hes your everything

Does he make you high / Does he make you real
Does he make you cry / Does he know the way you feel
Love is all around you / your universe is full
But in My World
You made me high / you made me real
You made me cry / now you know the way I feel
Love is all around you / your universe is full
But in My World

    Song MeaningThe girl he loves is with someone else and it crushes him so much that he questions whether or not she ever really cared about him, even when they were together.

    He then questions her about her new boyfriend, asking her if "he makes you high, makes you real, makes you cry, does he know the way you feel?" He is asking her how much the new boyfriend really cares about her. He reminds her that "love is all around you, your universe is full", showing that she may not need him, but then he concludes the verse with the powerful line "but in my world, there is only you", which shows the magnitude of his love for her.

    The final chorus is slightly altered, as he dramatically tells her, or perhaps even begs her to understand, that "you made me high, you made me real, you made me cry", showing how much he cared about her (and still does). The line "now you know the way I feel" could mean that he had previously hidden his feelings for her in the past, but is now revealing them to her with a hopeless devotion that will never stop until he is with her again. The final line iterates that devotion and the power of his love, as he repeats "but in my world, there is only you."

    He is devastated that they are no longer together because he put his whole heart and his entire being into the relationship. Sadly, she does not do the same, setting him up to take a huge blow when she leaves him, but even so, nothing in the world will stop his love for her.


    --This is my favorite song of all time. Beautiful music, powerful lyrics, and a strong message. If you're going to love, give it everything you've got. You never know what you might mean to someone else.

    General CommentThis song is an alternate version of SR71's 'My world', but this version is way more emotional and deep. I just can't wait for Mitch Allan's cd 'Clawing my way to the middle' to appear!
