Hang on the falling edge of the reason
Everyone is upside-down and inside-out
The bed is messy, the keys are gone.

In a perfect world,
The perfect place is with you.

Under delicate breath...

In a perfect world, where perfect place is with you
The truth is, the world is without love,
In a perfect world, the perfect place is with you
The truth is, the world is without love.

In a perfect world, the perfect place is with you
The truth is, the world is without love,
In a perfect world, where perfect place is with you
The truth is, the world is without...

    MemoryIt's been only 3 weeks since a woman I love admitted her love for me. For me it was only the second time in my life I had felt this strongly for a woman. She admitted to me to have never had these feelings for anyone.

    But both of us were in committed relationships. We were both up front to our partners. Only her relationship was solid, and she had a dear child with her boyfriend.

    After a lot of love and pain she decided to stay with her boyfriend for the sake of her child, and because she couldn't bear hurting him. Her love for him was of a different kind, but not at all gone.

    I love her for that, even though it pains me that I won't have the chance to be there for her, or to be with her, even though I feel that she is the one for me... I feel silly saying it in this forum, but I was ready to build a life with her and her child.

    To respect her decision I am to keep my distance and not get in contact with her in any way. She is to do the same. One day later she posted this song to her FB feed and it is now the most devastating song in my life. I interpret it as her last message to me:

    She hangs on to reason, though it keeps crumbling under the emotions she feels. Everyone around her is affected. (I know this pains her more than she can bear). There is no ready solution... the keys are gone.

    It's the verse where she tells me: "In a perfect world, the perfect place is with you". This breaks my heart, because I'm quite certain she feels this way. And of course I feel the same.

    "The truth is the world is without love". There is love in the world, it's just that reality has it that we cannot be together, and for that the world is not all that caring for us... it is without love for our particular situation.

    All I can say is that after hearing it for the first time it makes me cry, and it still does every time I hear it.

    I don't believe there is a song in the world more appropriate to my situation.

    I love you M. Always.

    General Comment"The truth is the world is without love" is what I hear. I can't really find any confirmation of this, though.

    The bass in this song gives me serious boners. It's lovely.

    General CommentActually...after reading these lyrics, I think there are some mistakes. If I may:

    "Hang on the falling edge of reason
    Everyone is upside down and inside out
    Your bed is missing, the keys are gone

    In a perfect world
    In the perfect places with you

    And a delicate breath

    In a perfect world
    In the perfect places with you
    The truth is, the world is without love"

    Though I am a bit unsure about the line "and a delicate breath" I can't tell, maybe your lyrics are correct there, but that's what I've always heard. Also the line "in the perfect places with you" might be "where the perfect place is with you". I dunnoes!

    General CommentI think that it's about inside world, when U are ok with yourself U can love someone, because U love yourself, but when U have chaos inside - when your world is far from being perfect - U can't love even if U want to love, because it's just impossible.

    General Commentmaybe i'm just hearing what i wanna hear, but i think it's 'the bed is messy / the keys are gone'
    that would make more sense, wouldn't it?
    either way, it's a killer song

    General Commentafter listening to it again and again...
    i'm just throwing this out there
    i think the song's about falling for a prostitute
    or not falling.. just sleeping with a hooker, and thinking, 'damn, you're the perfect girl, cuz i don't have to put up with all that usual bs, but all the same i can't love you'
    it's probably just me but that's my take on the song
