"Something About Us" as written by Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel Homem Christo....
It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there's something about us I want to say
'Cause there's something between us anyway

I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there's something about us I've got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I'll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

    General CommentYou guys are simplifying this too much. This is all in present-tense. No, it's not about a simple crush. The song is called Something About Us, not Something About You.

    The fact that he says he loves her as the LAST line is the most important part. More particularly, he says it after he mentions that he misses her. He waited too long to say he loved her. Maybe he was afraid, or maybe it took her leaving to make him realize how much he loved her, but that much is certain.

    When he says that it might not be the right time, he's saying that it might not be the right time to tell her. He's also saying he might not be the right one, because he'll never know if she shared his deep feelings of love.

    He's got to do something about them, the secret he will share is the fact that he knows he loved her.

    General CommentThis song is basically about a crush. The speaker wants this girl so badly, and he's been out with her and they may be friends, but she doesn't have these feelings for him. He can't move on so he still laments about his desire for her. Even though he can't ever have her, he still dreams of her and has to explain his feelings to her.

    General CommentIt REALLY hurts, doesn't it?. This song's lyrics are so simply, yet they couldn't go deeper. It fits so perfectly with the relationship that's been driving me mad for the last five and a half years. We would start kind of going out together, then we became the closest friends and then lovers...the thing is that even when we were apart for several reasons we never kind of forget about each other, because we were something different...We were never really a true couple but we would come and go...And I never really told my true feeling the way I should, the way this song describes them: we might not be right for each other, we might never work together...but why did we never close the door?. I've accepted he's the most important thing I ever had, still I just turn away because I am scared of being left alone again. I refused to say goodbye, but I know it's the only way I can be happy with someone else. And it's too painful. To love somebody so much - to have "something between you" - knowing that you have no future, to have so many feelings and being "incompatible" (in his own words :'( ).
