"While We're In Love" as written by Adam L. Schlesinger, Andy Chase and Dominique Durand....
While we're in love
We'll bleed each other dry
We'll hold each other close
We'll make each other cry

While we're in love
We'll get what we deserve
Until we lose our faith
Unit we lose our nerve

We know it won't last forever
'Cause we're not meant to be together
Make the best of a bad situation
Face the fear and the desperation
While we're in love
While we're in love

While we're in love
We'll drag ourselves around
We'll hold each other up
We'll tear each other down

We know it won't last forever
'Cause we're not meant to be together
Make the best of a bad situation
Face the fear and the desperation
While we're in love
While we're in love

    General Commenti read it as her telling a lover at the beginning of the relationship where everything is going. It's a destructive relationship "we know it won't last forever" or maybe a relationship they shouldn't be in "'cause we not meant to be together." Yet they're in love and can't help but fall for each other.

    I like the first few lines which seem to say so much about love. it's a different angle on how love and relationships pan out, but still true for all it's negative qualities:

    "While we're in love we'll bleed each other dry/We'll hold each other close/We'll make each other cry/While we're in love we'll get what we deserve
    until we lose our faith/until we lose our nerve. "

    It's like saying, 'we'll love each other until we can't handle it anymore.' 'we'll love and care for each other, despite knowing that things may well end.

    The lines: "While we're in love we'll get what we deserve/until we lose our faith/until we lose our nerve" speak to me. The idea that we can love someone to the point where we become scared of losing them, question whether we begin to lose ourselves in a relationship, or begin to question our own love for them, to the point where we find ourselves ending something out of fear.

    this song seems to say to me all the fears and concerns that we have when we fall in love. in some ways she's probably also trying to reassure herself, or talk herself into going into this relationship in the first place.

    General CommentI think it's like trying to make work what you know never will. You so desperately want that true love, the real thing, the 'one' and so you try so hard to make something out of nothing. And it's saying that even though it's not meant to be and we both know it, even though knowing that takes the fun out of it, let's be together anyways and try to make this misery work

    General CommentI agree with Ethereal Butterfly. It's about how two people are just so in love with each other, even if they know that they're not meant to be. It kinda hurts, loving someone as much as she's describing, yet knowing that your just not meant to be with that person, so you end up praying every night, praying that your gut feeling is wrong & that you are meant to be together.... yahh... xD
