So did we ever want the same things?
You want a love you could live without.
Maybe after all we're on different wavelengths.

Something's just eluding me, somehow.
But to have an opinion
is fraught with danger

Could you ever believe
there's no hidden agenda with me?

Applying the brakes may well protect you;
boundaries in place will keep a heart safe.
But I think love should come with madness,
that there is no road you should not take.
Surviving isn't everything:
I'd rather drown than not dive in.
But what does it matter what I think?
Why should I have to understand?
What gives me the right to judge you?
And what do I know anyway
didn't you always say I don't live in the real world?

    General CommentHaving to realize that someone isn't bad or cruel just because they don't want to be in love with you. They have their own reasons for abstaining from the passions, for remaining fundamentally apart from you, for not wanting to fall in love with you.

    You wanted to love someone deeply, and at that time your loved one did not; that's not a fault on either person's part... You just don't want the same thing from a relationship right now, and that's the fundamental, bleak reality of it.

    Sad song about realizing what you wanted for so long, yearned for so deeply, you can't have because the other person just... doesn't want the same thing, doesn't want you, doesn't want to be in love, doesn't want to be in love with you.
