"There Are Times" as written by and Janis Ian....
There are times when
I'm not even thinking about you.
And there are nights
When I don't want to be around you .
And I know, I know, I know,
You think I'm crazy.
Why don't, why don't, why don't,
Why don't you love me?

I guess you've never felt this way before.
But there we were not loving each other
Anymore.

There have been times when you've called
And I wouldn't answer.
And there have been weeks
I avoid you every day.
But how come, how come, how come,
I have forever?
What made, what made, what made,
What makes you stay?

I guess you've never felt this way before.
So here you were waiting for more.

And there's still days
I need to be near you.
And there's still nights
That you're all I've got.
Well I hope, I hope, I hope,
You believe me.
Cause I won't, I won't, I won't,
Go one more day.

I have never felt this way before.
You may be all I need in this world.

I have never felt this sure before.
You may be all I really needed in this
Great, big, Earth.

    General CommentSuch a moving song. I think everyone has been in this situation. I think it's about discovering real love, but taking it for granted.
