"When You Love Someone" as written by and Michael Kamen Bryan Adams....
When you love someone, you'll do anything
You'll do all the crazy things, that you can't explain
You'll shoot the moon, put out the sun
When you love someone

You'll deny the truth, believe a lie
There'll be times that you'll believe, you could really fly
But your lonely nights, have just begun
When you love someone

When you love someone, you'll feel it deep inside
And nothin else, could ever change your mind
When you want someone, when you need someone
When you love someone

When you love someone, you'll sacrifice
You'd give it everything you got and you won't think twice
You'd risk it all, no matter what may come
When you love someone
You'll shoot the moon, put out the sun
When you love someone

    General CommentWell, to me this is how you feel when you in love....as it has been that way for me. This song pulls at my heart strings as I love someone but it will not work out no matter how hard I have tried...it just isnt going to work. I feel so this way....and this song makes me cry.

    General CommentI'm suprised this song only has 3 comments. Wow, people say that for like every song possible, but anyway, this song is really beautiful...the flute in the song reminds me of "Titanic" and "Lord of the Rings", for some odd reason. But I also first heard this song on "Hope Floats", it's a good movie, and the song is just amazing.

    General CommentI can honestly say that I have felt this way for someone I have loved before, but unfortunately, he loved drugs more.

    My InterpretationI don't think this is a strong song musically speaking, but i identify with the lyrics. Being in love grips your heart and drives you over the edge and makes you act irrationally at times especially if you fear it's being encroached upon or violated. I guess some people have never felt love, which might be fortunate, as it can really tear you apart if you feel like things are crumbling.
    "And nothin else can ever change your mind...": not another person or the appearance of circumstances;you are driven to persistently pursue the one who holds your affections...and sometimes that means sacrificing pieces of pride, anger, and even doubts. When it comes down to it, making things work is a choice. Few people realize that relinquishing these things or choosing love,it is ultimately a strength and not a weakness.
