I'll begin to let you go
When the sunlight melts the snow
Every night I drive away from you
I see the mountains I have yet to move

And you there
You don't care
I wonder if you

Wanted me like I wanted you
It's a lonely truth
That I can't change you
You sure can't change me

It's hard as Hell tonight to sleep
To close my eyes would be admitting my defeat

Then you there
You don't care
I wonder if you

Wanted me like I wanted you
It's a lonely truth
That I can't change you
And you sure can't change me

Are you wanting me like I wanted you
It's a lonely truth
That I can't change you

Then you there
You don't care
I wonder if you

Wanted me like I wanted you
It's a lonely truth
That I can't change you

Wanted me like I wanted you
It's a lonely truth
That I can't change you
And you sure can't change me

    General CommentOh, I am so happy that someone(s) finally got the lyrics for these songs. This album is so gorgeous, this song in particular.

    I think the meaning is pretty straightforward: someone wants someone else (probably a breakup, the first stanza makes it seem like that), but doesn't think they can make it work because of how they both are. "Every night I drive away from you/I see the mountains I have to move" is particularly lovely and poetic :)

    MemoryAt first I heard this song in Moonlight TV Show, i really like it, and when i search for the lyrics, WOW! it felt as though it speak from my heart. I know how painful it is to have an unrequited love. And learning to live with that thought everyday, you just want to forget you found love but not yours to cherish.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who has an unrequited love for someone.

    In the beginning she says she has to let it go and move on, because they don't like her back.

    She sees that he doesn't care about the whole thing but its driving her crazy because she likes him and he doesn't even show any emotion.

    She wonders if he might've liked her like she wanted him. And she can't change him, or the way he feels, and he can't change the fact that she likes him.
