"do you really think someone who was in love would say

"I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two" "

Me. I would say that. We're all animals, shuffling around our stupid little pointless lives looking for a place to belong. And those lives are so fleeting, they might as well be a minute or two.

When you realize that in the grand scheme of things everything you have and know is the blink of an eye then gone, the most romantic thing you can say to another person is share with me the boring, mundane, and stay with me "out of the passing of time". Time is precious, what better reason could there be to stay with someone?

A lot of what some of you think makes this song depressing, is what I find heartwarming.
