"Never Be" as written by and Benmont M./petty Tench....
We were talking, just the other day
About small time things how we love to play
But the talk soon drifted to the darker things in life
And you mentioned, how your world had changed
When you found out how my worlds arranged
Well I guess my sin is not knowing when to lie

'Cause I'll never be, never be, what you want me to be
I'll never see, never see what you want me to see
And I know now, it's all just lost in your eyes
No I'll never be, never be what you want me to be
Never see, never see, what you want me to see
And I know now it's all just lost in your eyes
In your lies

I saw a picture of you and me
And it all rushed back how it used to be
All those feelings that were gospel such a long time ago
And I thought to myself that I wanted you back
But I know in my mind that it's only a trap
Well I guess those feelings are better just left alone

You know, when it all comes down to it, maybe we were just too much alike
But I know, when it comes down to it I guess it doesn't really matter
It's over

    General CommentI think is about a relationship that has been going on for some time and how one person realises he will never be what his partner wants to turn him into and starts to doubt his partner and their relationship.

    Anyway, killer song.

    My InterpretationA person in the relationship isn't what they think the other person wants. I guess it's difficult to know what the other person wants if they aren't asked.
