i heard a song tonight on the radio
another girl sings about a boy
she sees his face in every space, every room
and i know that if i turn around you won't be there
if i close my eyes will you be there?

[chorus]
i don't wanna lose your face
i don't wanna wake up one day
and not remember what time erased
and i don't wanna turn around
cause i'm not scared of
what love gave me and took away
and i don't wanna lose your face

i've got a picture of you in my bedroom
and i hope it never falls
i hope i never lose that feelin'
i used to get when you called
and i wonder to myself
who were you? where are you? were you ever here at all?

[chorus]
i don't wanna lose your face
i don't wanna wake up one day
and not remember what time erased
and i don't wanna turn around
cause i'm not scared of
what love gave me and took away
and i don't wanna lose your face

that girl in the song had it so good
i wish i could close my eyes and see you
i wish the sky had your face
and the oceans has your eyes
and the sun that had your lips
and i had you, ohhhh yeah

[chorus]
i don't wanna lose your face
i don't wanna wake up one day
and not remember what time erased
and i don't wanna turn around
cause i'm not scared of
what love gave me and took away
and i don't wanna lose your face
ohhh, no, no

i don't wanna lose your face
i don't wanna turn around
oh oh oh oh, yeah
oh, oh, ohhhh
oh, oh, ohhhh
oh, oh, ohhhh yeah

    General CommentThis song reminds me a lot of something one of my friends is going through.. She's actually said almost exactly what is being said in this song.

    She was in a very, very good relationship and a few months before their 1 year her boyfriend committed suicide, and now she's doing everything she can to just not forget his face or the sound of his voice or the way he looked, etc.

    It's so sad..

    General CommentThis song means that a girl and guy had broken up before. She loved him but she doesn't want to forget him in time. she wants to remember everything. she don't want one morning to wake up and think "who was that guy?"

    My OpinionI think it's about a girl who ended a relationship with a boy, and even though she's so depressed about it, she doesn't want to forget the memories of when she was happy.

    General CommentIts about a girl who broke up with her boyfriend but instead of just trying to forget about him she wants to remember him because she was obviously in love with him and she was happy with him at one point and so she doesnt want to forget all the good times they had together..she doesnt want to left not remembering what he looked like...

    ''i wish i could close my eyes and see you
    i wish the sky had your face
    and the oceans has your eyes
    and the sun that had your lips''

    These lines show that even though they had broken up she still wanted him to be around about her in some way..because she wants to remember him..and never let his face fade away and not remember what it was like.x
