Anime《巖窟王 Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo》OP

Harsh words were said
and lies were told instead
I didn't ever mean to make you cry
But love can make us weak and make us strong
and before too very long
I was totally in love with you
I bathed in you
Lost in you, captivated by you
Amazed by you, dazed by you

Nothing can go wrong
Nothing can go wrong

So tonight I'll sing
a song to all my friends
Also to those we won't be seeing again
To those I knew and those I still adore
and I want to see once more
I just pray that you will love me
and trust me
Laugh with me and cry with me
spend those silent times with me

Love me evermore
Love me evermore

You and I were lovers
Our dreams were not soured by life
And then my friends' betrayal
meant you never would be my wife

Harsh words were said
and lies were told instead
I didn't ever mean to make you cry
But love can make us weak and make us strong
and before too very long
I was totally in love with you
I bathed in you
Lost in you, captivated by you
Amazed by you, dazed by you

Nothing can go wrong
Nothing can go wrong
Nothing can go wrong......

    Song MeaningI love this song!!
    Well the meaning is pretty obvious, from the view of Gankutsuou the mysterious man. How he loves a woman and the friends.

    According to my memory, the story begins like this:
    1.A man and a woman was in love.Very typical.
    2.The lovers were very happy until one of their mutual friend, General Fernand Mondego, together with some other people betrayed the man.
    3.For some reason, the man faced wrongful imprisonment for many many years.
    He has to leave his girlfriend who could have been his wife.
    4.The man was so sad and angry, he determined to revenge on all those people who've betrayed him.
    5.The woman didn't realize about the betrayal and she eventually married to the "mutual friend" who've betrayed the man she loved all the time.
    6.So after years, the happy couple has a son Albert , they never thought the man disappeared for years would come back with his raging revenge, using the son Albert as his tool to ruin all their lives.
    7.This is the song of the otherwise innocent loving man but was compelled to become the dreadful demon.

    I just love this song. The piano is so deep and beautiful, the melody is so touching, and the story, I'm not a good story teller, the original story is incredibly tragic and beautiful. The man just want his girl back, he just want the love back and what's wrong with that? I hate the treachery, selfishness and evil in people. That has caused too many tragedies, sadness and heartbreaks in the world...
