"Always" as written by and Cedric Caldwell T D Jakes....
The life you had known
The pain that you show
I count all of the times you choke
The last miracle
The emptiness of hope
When all you want is to be a stranger

The lives you recall
The things that you stole
The push backwards that makes you fall
The scars that you show
The lover that you hold
Is no more than a ghost

And I've seen the cold and the rain
And I pushed you back


Don't you need it in the worst way?
Control, I need it in the worst way, babe
But if you ever come back, if you ever come back
I will let you

    General Commentit's a situation where two people are so attached, in spite of the futility of the relationship.
    the narrator is the stronger of the two, pushing the other away.
    but he shows his weakness in saying that all she would have to do is come back for them to return to it all.

    General CommentTwo lovers, yet strangers. Two people that love and hate each other at the same time. As the old saying goes, can't live with them, can't live without them

    I will let you
    This song is so sad, but it reminds me of two ex-lovers, and one of them is completely done with the relationship, and the other is still wanting to love that person.

    General CommentIt doesn't get much better than this.
    I don't actually like most of their songs, but the notes and lyrics in this song hit you like a train.

    General CommentI have the same interpretation as tabularasa. I pushed her away many years ago and I've always wanted for her to return and I always will, even though the relationship would be as futile now as it was then. This song does hit me like a train.
