"Just Not Each Other" as written by and William Fitzsimmons....
Walked back home from this disaster
Saw your ghost under the plaster
My heart's in thrown, broken to pieces
I'm coming home

Lost my way, gave up my treasure
Hid my heart, lost you forever
Won't know her father,
I can't come home

Loved you first, when we were children
You broke my heart, all that's forgiven
We lost our chance to love one another
We'll love again but just not each other
Love again but just not each other
Love again but just not each other
Love again but just not each other
Love again but just not each other
Love again, love again, love again
We will love again but just not each other
Love again, love again, love again
We will love again but just not each other

    General CommentThis song illustrates the somewhat reluctant acceptance of the break up.

    He's fixed his "home" (read: heart) after the "disaster". He can see her ghost under the plaster he's used to fix the cracks.

    Obviously, his ex is pregnant with his child and since he's given up his "treasure" (read: his ex-wife) the child will not know her father (the speaker).

    The speaker states that when they were children (and presumably when things were easier and less serious) she broke his heart and he forgave her. Things are more serious now, and she cannot repay that favor to him.

    He states that each of them will find love again but not in the arms of each other.

    Song Meaning(Track 7 from the album The Sparrow and the Crow)

    Discontented by the partial reconciliation with his former wife (see the previous track Further From You) and despondent that he will not be a full time parent for his unborn child the subject returns to his new home in the same old house. Haunted by the love he still bears for the woman he betrayed the man descends to the point of despair where he is resigned to his lonely state, yet the negotiator refused to die. He recalls an offence that he forgave and immediately transitions to the current state of their serviceable but detached relationship. Realism set upon the man, as he recognizes one day he will love again. He just won’t love again with the one he loves.

    General CommentSounds like the missing line is
    The flesh in you won't know her father
