"Be Mine" as written by Klas Frans Ahlund and Robin Miriam Carlsson....
It's a good thing tears never show in the pouring rain
As if a good thing ever could make up for all the pain
There'll be no last chance to promise to never mess it up again
Just a sweet pain of watching your back as you walk
As I'm watching you walk away

And now you're gone it's like an echo in my head
And I remember every word you said

It's a cruel thing you'll never know all the ways I tried
It's a hard thing faking a smile when I feel
Like I'm falling apart inside

And now you're gone it's like an echo in my head
And I remember every word you said

And you never were
And you never will be mine
No you were never were
And you never will be mine

For the first time there is no mercy in your eyes
And the cold winds hitting my face and you're gone
And you're walking away, away
And I am helpless sometimes
Wishing's just no good
'Cause you don't see me like I wish you would

'Cause you never were and you never will be mine
No you never were and you never will be mine

There's a moment to seize every time that we meet
But you always keep passing me by
But you never were and you never will be mine
No you were never were and you never will be mine

There's a moment to seize every time that we meet
But you always keep passing me by
But you never were and you never will be mine

    General CommentAbsolutely love this song. So mellow and gentle.
    Basically it's just about someone who knows that the person they love doesn't love them back, and that they won't be together.

    My InterpretationI interpret this song as the voice of the song/lyrics has just told the person he/she (let's just say 'she' 'cause Ellie is the first singer and it makes it easier) has romantic feelings for how she truly feels but him but he's rejected her:

    'it's a good thing tears never show in the pouring rain'-she's embarrassed, she doesn't want people to know of her confession and her rejection because she honestly feels so stupid.
    'as if...pain'- he's said he wants to be friends and to his face she's accepted but deep down she knows she won't feel truly okay about him because nothing can make up for the heartbreak.
    'no last chance...again'- no way of taking back the confession, things will be awkward between them from now on.
    'it's a cruel thing...tried'- he'll never see everything she did and he'll never get to love her for all the things she did to help and support him.

    'you never were and you never will be mine'- she always knew that he didn't reciprocate her feelings, she didn't truly expect him to.

    'for the first time there is a mercy in your eyes'-clearly the two are good friends and he cares about her but now he feels guilty for leading her on and hurting her.
    'cold winds...away'- he made her forget her troubles, he was just such a light in her life, a shelter from the harsh world and now he's walking away and she's exposed to the cruel realities of both real life and also the truth of his feelings towards her.
    'wishing...would'- she can hope and wish all she likes but it changes nothing because she can't manipulate his heart, she can't control how he feels about her.

    'there's a moment to seize...passing me by'- they have obvious chemistry but the timing's not right, or she's not brave enough, or he just doesn't see how good they'd be together like she does and the moments keep passing her by, they never get an opportunity.
