"Should Be Loved" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
Stop staring, you're the reason I feel so unhappy all the time.
Look, I've given you everything I know how.
You're standing on the top of my shoe,
Keeping me from gaining ground, yeah.
Look, I'm sorry if you feel like I let you down.

Can you tell me what have I done so wrong..to you?
T-T-T-Tell me, what am I supposed to do?

I should be loved by you,
That I know is true.
I can't breathe when you're around, no.

I should be held at night,
That I know is right.
I can't breathe when you're around.

You're too scared,
Scared of all of it,
I get that feeling I'm talking to the wall.
Can you hear me at all?
Look, my world was shaking, my mind was quaking, my heart kept breaking,
I threw it against the wall.
Can anyone feel me at all?

Can you tell me what have I done so wrong, to you?
T-T-T-Tell me, what am I supposed to do?
I got a feeling, you're falling out of love, with me.
T-T-T-Tell me, who am I supposed to be?

I should be loved by you
That I know is true.
I can't breathe when you're around, no.

I should be held at night,
That I know is right.
I can't breathe when you're around.
Yeah, I can't breathe when you're around.
Look, I can't breathe.

I should be loved by you,
That I know is true!
I can't breathe when you're around!
I should be held, I should be held!
I can't breathe when you're around!
No, I can't breathe when you're around!
No, I can't breathe

    General Commentits about two people who are in a relationship that is going really bad. the guy doesn't feel like he is loved anymore, but the girl doesn't care, and this is hell for him.

    General CommentThis song is about a couple where all they ever do is fight and argue.

    "stop stareing youre the reason i feel unhappy all the time
    look ive given you everything I know how
    youre standing ontop of my shoe youre keeping me from gaining ground"

    She is his life and he is kinda obsessing just wanting to keep her happy but at the same time she is holding him back in a sense. She never want to work things out and wants to pretend everything is ok. He can never get a sense of security or comfort from her as he once did.

    "You're too scared, scared of all of it
    I get the feeling I'm talking to the wall
    Can you hear me at all?
    Look, my world was shaking
    My mind was quaking
    My heart was breaking
    I threw it against the wall
    Can anyone feel me at all?"

    She is doesnt want to acknowlege their problems "youre too scare scared of all of it" But he still trys but she wont listen to him or even consider what he has to say. Through all the problems and him trying to keep himself together his whole world is pretty much coming down on him.

    So in short this song is about arelationship that is either going to end or should end.

    Song Meaning*DISCLAIMER* I have just obtained a copy of Justin Furstenfeld's book Crazy Making. It's not very detailed, but it contains all the lyrics to all current (The Answers - Approaching Normal) Blue October songs, and his inspiration behind them. As I said, it's not very detailed, but it's his words on every Blue October song that is in the book. I know everyone interprets a song differently from everyone else, but having the original intent behind the song will be helpful to people who don't fully understand a song. Also, any grammatical errors are not made by me, I'm putting down Justin's words exactly how he writes them. So yea... enjoy :)

    Should Be Loved: "U see everyone around you giving and recieving. Genuine laughing. I wrote this the last week in the studio after hoping I'd be taken seriously about what I could never say."

    General CommentThis is like exactly how I feel in my relationship right now, but we don't fight at all... My bf is very depressed right now, and he has been avoiding me- then there are days when he is in a good mood, and sometimes he talks to me but most of the time I feel like I'm being ignored and we never hang out anymore... I feel like I should end it but I know I would regret it because the way he's acting right now isn't really like him... But it's still hurting me.

    Anyway, I love this song, such a catchy upbeat tune with such sad lyrics, but it's also kinda like "hey!" in your face- confrontational? Dunno how to describe it...
