"Break Through" as written by Rick Nowels and Colbie Caillat....
Why is it so hard
It was so long ago
I don't know where to start or what to say to you
I've been all alone needing you by my side
But its not too late
Maybe we just needed time
Can we try to let it go?
If we don't than we'll never know
I try to break through but you know that its up to you

We say that time is meant to heal
But it still hurts inside
I wish that none of this was real
cause we're so far behind

You've been all alone
Needing me by your side
But its not too late
Maybe we just needed time
Can we try to let it go
If we don't than we'll never know
I'll try to break through
But you know that its up to you

And i know that our love can grow
But this damn river needs to flow
I will try to break through but you know that its up to you

Its time to make a stand
Maybe it won't last
But we should take the chance

Can we try to let it go
If we don't than we'll never know
I try to break through
But you know that its up to you
I know that our love can grow
When this damn river needs to flow
I will try to break through
But you know that its up to you

I'll try to break through but you know that its up to you
I'll try to break through but you know that its up to you

    General CommentThis song is about two people who are in a relationship which seems to be on the rocks. Time is breaking them further and further apart. Whenever the girl needs the guy during a struggle, the guy seems to be far away. However, whenever the guy needs the girl during a struggle, the girl seems to be far away too. All they need and they're fighting for is time.

    Love can be nurtured-- That's what the girl believes. She desperately wants to be with the guy, and it's all up to him.

    Song ComparisonGlad I came across this song because it says my feeling perfectly to the woman I love and our situaion. Here's the problem, she's married. I know that I should never have got involved with her because of this. Two years ago I had just gotten divorced and we met through mutual friends and interests and instantly were connected. We talked about our lives for long periods of time and she told me how she never loved her husband but that he was chosen for her by her family and she felt she had to do what they wanted. She lived for everyone else but herself all this time. We both know we are each other's soulmates, but she doesn't want to divorce him because she's afraid of what her family will think(divorce is not an option to them), but even more because she doesn't want to hurt her children. She tells me when her children are old enough to have their own lives we can be together, problem is we're talking about another 10 years or so and I am not exactly a spring chicken any more. This woman is PERFECT in my eyes (well except that marraige part) and part of me wants to wait for her, but it's been two years and I'm getting lonely. She tells me it's ok to date someone else, but I know she hopes I don't and I can't hurt this woman's feelings. I'm also afraid that I will constantly be thinking of her if I am with someone else, and that wouldn't be fair to them either. We have tried to take time away from each other and not talk or call or text, but every time we have not been able to stay away for more than a couple of days. I need this woman in my life and I know she needs me.

    I first heard Colbie's "Falling For You" within days of first meeting this woman and even though I am more of a hard rocker, Colbie's songs have been the soudtrack to the time I have spent with this woman. And it's weird but I keep hearing songs from her for the first time right when they mean something in our relationship. As I mentioned, I'm at a point now where I am torn on what I should do. I don't want to push her into something, I want her to do what she wants. But I want to wake up every morning and the first thing I see is her without make up and hair all a mess and sleepies in her eyes, etc. I heard "Break Through" for the first time today. "I've been all alone needing you by my side, But it's not too late, Maybe we just needed time, Can we try to let it go? If we don't than we'll never know, I try to break through but you know that it's up to you" It's up to her.
