The swell that i get in the back of my throat
could overturn the biggest passenger boat
and I would choke on these tears but I know you'd only hear
a silence in your ears.
But how I pinched myself again to see you standing there and then
It would all be so clear when we're no longer fighting over here.

You say that you love me but I know you love him more
and I dont know what to say or do anymore
when you say that you love me but if you thought twice
then you wouldn't call me here in the middle of the night

Now you hold that shirt that once smelled of me
So why did you leave so abruptly
But does she know that you still call me now
When you've got and had another fall somehow?

But how you pinched yourself again to see me
Not lying there with you next to me
But would it all be so clear in the end
If you dropped all your fears and we were friends?

I know you say you love me but I know you love him more
I dont know what to say or do anymore.
When you say that you love me but if you thought twice
you wouldn't call me here in the middle of the night.

So I'll speak my mind just this once
I know you didn't care for months.
Why am I feeling so low
When this ended so long ago?
And I cant believe for a second I'm not a single word you say
Cos you could have had me back
But you threw this all away.

You say that you love me but I know you love him more
and I dont know what to say or do anymore.
When you say that you love me but if you thought twice
then you wouldn't call me here in the middle of the night.

You say that you love me but I know you love him more
and I dont know what to say or do anymore.
When you say that you love me but if you thought twice
then you wouldn't call me here in the middle of the night.

    General CommentI love this song.

    My feelings on it. Two people were together, something happened between them for them to mutually break it off for the best for both of them.

    The guy regretted it and wanted her back for a long time she didnt recipitate, perhaps got a rebound and then realised that she still loved him, but shes so indecisive on what she has with the new person "the security etc" and the first love so to speak and the planned life with the ex. So sad, but I think its based on her indecision, and perhaps feeling like she loves both partners.
