The wind felt like a frail storm
With the chimes still singing the summer's born
Say goodbye to the rest of the rain
We ran until there was no daylight
When the sun went down and day turned to night
The cities lights with such sustain

And there I stood
As if I could
Be the one to make things right

Oh, you got me running backwards and running forwards and
Oh, you got me lost inside your eyes with no way out
Where I get lost?
I got caught inside your arms
And even when things get rough
Baby you give me a different kind of love

The sea was calling when we started to walk
The moon came out and we began to talk
True stars come out at night
Me and you we were like stars
Like a movie with a screen do you know who we are?
Thank the moon for our spotlight

And there I stood
As if I could
Be the one to make things right

Oh, you got me running backwards and running forwards and
Oh, you got me lost inside your eyes with no way out
Where I get lost?
I got caught inside your arms
And even when things get rough
Baby you give me a different kind of love

Got me running backwards and running forwards
Got me lost inside your eyes
And there she was, just because she was made for the spotlight

Ah, you got me running backwards and running forwards and
Oh, you got me lost inside your eyes with no way out
Where I get lost?
I got caught inside your arms
And even when things get rough
Baby you give me a different kind of love

Oh, you got me running backwards and running forwards and
Oh, you got me lost inside your eyes with no way out
Where I get lost?
I got caught inside your arms
And even when things get rough
Baby you give me a different kind of love

    General CommentHe meets a girl who completely changes his view on love. She's not a traditionally easy girl to love, but he loves her all the more because of this. He uses the slightly cliche lines of "caught inside your arms" and "lost inside your eyes", but admits that things can get rough, though it's all worth it because she makes him love her in an untraditional, "different kind of love".

    The "running backwards and running forwards" is such a nice image. Not only is it a catchy line, but I think it exemplifies the kind of love he feels towards her. One day it's one way, the next day it's another, but she's always "got" him running.

    My InterpretationI think he's trying to say that he thinks the girl in the song is the one for him. A different kind of love, like the love he gets from her is different from anything he's felt before. It's real and he knows it. It's a love that is different from anything he's or anyone has ever felt before, but that's just my opinion..
