"Never Want To Say Its Love" as written by Jon Brion, Dido Armstrong and Rollo Armstrong....
I could put it down to being tired,
Or coming home to an empty house,
A passing moment,
A little man
No one around to stop me writing to you.

I never wanna say it's love
But it's really what I'm thinking of

I could apologize,
And say tear it up,
And put it down to the pills I've taken
Seeing my friends with their lives moved on
Well I've been gently drifting

[Chorus]
I never wanna say it's love
But it's really what I'm thinking of
I felt the same today
As I was feeling yesterday
It'll be the same tomorrow
From then on it won't change
I never wanna say it's love
But it's really what I'm thinking of

My home is home
And I'm settled now
I've made it through the restless phase
I have no reason to get bored anymore
My friends are around and your name comes up
Asking if I ever heard from you
I'm keeping it quiet about those words to you
But I meant every word that I said
I stand by every word that I said

[Chorus: x2]

I never wanna say it's love
But it's really what I'm thinking of
I never wanna say it's love
But it's really what I'm thinking of.

    General CommentSo she's in love with this guy and will always find an excuse to write to him to convey her feelings. But she's afraid to own up to them for the fear of blowing it (it's her way of protecting herself from heartbreak). So she's stuck on it, while all her friends (including this guy) are happily moving on with their lives.

    In the second half of the song, she is in another phase of her life where the distance between them has got bigger. She is dealing with the whole thing, pretending to have moved on. But she can't, because fact remains that she was, is and will always be in love.

    Needless to say, Dido's the BEST!
