"Dear Lover" as written by and David Eric/smear Grohl....
Dear lover
Do you remember?
The sound of your laughter and demise
And that was all
I need to fall in love

This matter
It's something bigger
Anything ever graced my heart
And that was all
I could fall in love, with you
And I can't stall this now

Did you find some happiness with me?
Now I know the way true love should be

Dear lover
Do you remember?
The beats of my heart that I gave you
And that was all
I need to fall in love

It shattered
Slipped through my fingers
Floated down safely into your hands
And that was all
I could fall in love, with you
I can't stall this now

Ooh Ooh Ooh

Did you find some happiness with me?

Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea yea

    General CommentI think this song is about the part in the relationship where you fall completely and helplessly in love with someone and they own a part of you. To me it's like being kinda happy about it but a little scared. But I dunno if he's maybe talkin bout after the relationship where she didn't even want to own his heart but she still did.
    This song is brilliant anyways and it reminds me of Lewis, fuck I love him.

    General Commenti sort of agree with the last post, i think its about being scared to fall in love. If you look at the lyrics, it sounds like he's thinking back on a decision he made to break off a relationship, because of a fear of committment. he's looking back, and realizing that he made a mistake and lost a chance at true love

    General CommentWhat a beautiful song! Makes me wanna fall in love right away!
    Dave´s voice is awesome, so fragile and still proud. He kind of speaks out what a teenager like me is only thinking of. All the time looking for someone to love out there.
    It´s summertime and I´m feeling a little lonely maybe this is why the song´s touching me right now. Only one word come to mind: Great

    General CommentI Think This Is About Being So In Love With This Girl And She Broke Up With Him But He Still Has Feelings For Her. So It's Like He Sends Her The Letter Entitled Dear Lover. It Also Proves That There Over Because He Says "Do You Remember The Beats Of My Heart That I Gave You " Which Is Past Tense,

    P.S. Amazing Song
