"Wrong Impression" as written by Natalie Jane Imbruglia and Gary Clark....
Calling out, calling out
Have you ever wondered
Why I'm always alone when you're in my dreams
Calling out, calling out
Have you ever wondered
What we could have been if you'd only let me in

I want you, but I want you to understand
I need you I love you

Didn't want to leave you with the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you with my last confession,
Yeah, of love
Wasn't tryin' to pull you in the wrong direction
All I want to do is try to make a connection yeah

Fallng out, fallin' out
Have you ever wondered, if this was ever more
Than a crazy idea
Falling out, falling out
Have you ever wondered

I want you, but I want you to understand
I need I love you

Didn't want to leave you with the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you with my last confession,
Yeah, of love
Wasn't tryin' to pull you in the wrong direction
All I want to do is try to make a connection yeah

    General Commentjassss, you are right. He's actually putting up walls. She is trying to make a connection with him and from what she's singing about.. it does seem like he is interested but scared.. or he's confused about it. It seems she likes him and she's just waiting for him to ask her for something more...

    "Haven't you wondered... Why you're finding it hard just looking at me." The line kind of states that he does have a thing for her.

    But he never did ask..
    "Haven't you wondered. What we could've been. If you'd only let me in."

    General CommentNot exactly sure on this one, but it seems to be along the lines of her being more into a relationship than him, and him putting the barriers up to it developing into something more.

    General Commentwhat does it mean?? i don't think she's the one putting the walls up. i think he is. and i think maybe she's leaving him but she still loves him ad she doesn't want him to think otherwise. like it's not me it's you kind of thing. but i don't know...

    General CommentNatalie is probably one of the best pop singers out there. Too bad she's not as famous as, say, Miley Cyrus (*shudder*).

    General CommentI just heard this song today and i loved it ...probably because i can relate to it a lot =/
    I think it means that they were in a complicated relationship...I think they were friends but never made it to something more because he never let her in and put up walls..." Haven't you wondered
    What we could've been
    If you'd only let me in"..they both love each other that's why she repeats it and throughout the chorus she's reassuring him that she still does and will always love him ..that's where the chorus comes in.
    and in the beginning it seems she probably waited a long time for him to come around because she says "Haven't you wondered
    Why I'm always alone
    When you're in my dreams" i think she was tired of waiting so she decided to move on...the part where it goes "Haven't you wondered
    Why you're finding it hard
    Just looking at me" makes me think that maybe she is breaking off their friendship..because she needs a break from him and it hurts her but she doesn't want to leave a wrong impression by letting him think she doesn't care..because she does. she just feels that it's important for them to part....
    well that's my opinion of the song..and i see it from this point of view because I'm in the same type of situation right now...

    General CommentYou know there are rumours flying around that Chris Martin of Coldplay actualy asked her out. I do not know if this is true or not, however if it is, then this would be the perfect song explaining that relationship. I agree with Posh Queen it's about Natalie ending the relationship because she needs a break from all the walls he's putting up against it, but she wants him to know that she'll always love him and that it was never her intention to lead him in the wrong direction, if that's what he felt she was doing.
