"Isn't Life Strange" as written by and John Charles Lodge....
Isn't life strange
A turn of the page
Can read like before
Can we ask for more
Each day passes by
How hard man will try
The sea will not wait
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there your were and here we are

Isn't love strange
A word we arrange
With no thought or care
Maker of despair
Each breath that we breathe
With love we must weave
To make us as one
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were, and here we are

Isn't life starnge
A turn of the page
A book without light
Unless with love we write
To throw it away
To lose just a day
The quicksand of time
You know it makes me wqnt to cry cry, cry

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were and here we are

    General CommentI think he is lamenting a relationship where one person is in love, but the love is not returned.

    I saw them perform this in Vegas, while I was heartbroken for the reasons mentioned above and I came close to crying.

    "Wished I could be in your heart" - that's what he wanted but he is not in her heart. Q. Why would he wish that he were in her heart? A. Because she is in his heart.

    "Wished I could be in your eyes" meaning he would still be with her now - but again he is not.

    To love and have it not returned will make you want to cry.

    Side Note:
    A decent person who isn't in love would cut the relationship off. The woman I fell for knew I was in love, knew she wasn't and used me for something to do while she kept her eyes open for the next guy. This last paragraph is off-topic and is the meaning of the song of "She Waiting" by Eric Clapton.

    My InterpretationA person's life experience dictates what they read into a song. I don't like it when artists explain their lyrics because they so often mean something completely different to the listener, and it kind of takes away from that.

    For example, I interpret the meaning of this song very differently from the previous responders. My husband has passed away. "A turn of the page can read like before" to me means we can go back and re-live our love, though he is in Heaven and I am here. "Wished I could be in your heart to be one with your love" to me simply means I want to be able to continue to share his love. Even though he is physically gone, I want to be one with him. "Wished I could be in your eyes, looking back there you were"...Wow. Pretty clear to me. I wish he could see me. I wish I could look back and see him. Makes me want to cry, cry, cry.
