"Something" as written by Willie Mitchell and Al L. Green....
I don't wanna say that I'm sorry
Cause I know there is nothing wrong
Don't be afraid there is no need to worry
Cause my feelings for you are still strong

Hold me in your arms
And never let me go
Hold me in your arms
Cause I need you so

I can see it in your eyes
There is something
Something you wanna tell me
I see it in your eyes
There is something
That you hide for me
Is there a reason why ?
There is something
Something you wanna tell me
I see it in your eyes
There is something
That you hide for me

I don't wanna say I'm sorry
Cause I know there is nothing wrong
Don't be afraid there is no need to worry
Cause my feelings for you are still strong

    My InterpretationThe girl has had quarrels with the boy but at the same time her affection stays. There is a *huge* conflict between her instinct and the version of the story that she has rationalized.
    The song starts with a sort-of siren. The siren symbolizes the alarm bells ringing from her instinct.
    Her instinct is right, but the rationalization takes the upper hand.
    She sees the problem with him, but she does not want it to be true. That's why she won't say sorry, because if there's no problem, there's no need to fix it. Not only does she want to keep the boy, but there is also too much pride at stake. Her selfishness, losing her pride, admitting to her mistake, she flees for what is about to be revealed.

    Many assume that the video was shot in Antwerp Central. In the video, around 2:17 you can see that's not true. The word "Kavárna" means cafe. To the notoriety of Prague central station, coffee is just about as irrelevant as wastewater engineering. It is a center for sex trade.

    General Commentyes he loves her...

    but she is "bi-curious" as they say. When he found out, he couldn't cope with the fact that that she needed someone else and bailed on her.

    She still loves him deeply (as much as ever), but he feels like she cheated on him. It makes no difference whether it was with a girl or guy.
