I saw what I wanted to
You did what you needed to
I saw what I wanted to
You did what you needed to

I saw what I wanted to
You did what you needed to

I could spend the rest of my days
Playing through what might have been

And oh...

We see what we want to
And we do what we need to
We see what we need to
And we do what we want to

And oh...

    My InterpretationThe song's lyrics make me think of the concept of freewill for all beings. However, when the divine Creator needs to step in, He/She will...out of infinite love for each of us. (Not meant to sound 'preachy,' just my observation, through a life of basic beliefs, beyond what I can see and experiences forming/actualizing outside of my direct action(s).

    The lyrics, in my interpretation, is an invitation to examine this concept--from all its varied angles.
