"Not In That Way" as written by Fraser T. Smith and Sam Smith....
And I hate to say I love you
When it's so hard for me
And I hate to say I want you
When you make it so clear
You don't want me

I'd never ask you cause deep down
I'm certain I know what you'd say
You'd say I'm sorry believe me
I love you but not in that way

And I hate to say I need you
I'm so reliant
I'm so dependent
I'm such a fool

When you're not there
I find myself singing the blues
Can't bear
Can't face the truth

You will never know that feeling
You will never see through these eyes

I'd never ask you
'Cause deep down I'm certain I know what you'd say
You'd say I'm sorry
Believe me
I love you
But not in that way

You'd say I'm sorry
Believe me
I love you
But not in that way

    General CommentThis song has a clear meaning. It is about someone he loves but that person doesn't love him back in the way that Sam loves them :)

    General CommentMaybe this song holds a deeper meaning, like how much he is willing to give to this person he has such strong feelings for, all he can do is give himself entirely but yet still be denied. Depression, anxiety and just wanting to feel that void of being alone. Referring to the line in the song that says, "you will never know that feeling".
