    General CommentI love this song, when you hear it, it's like it was written for you. The meaning's pretty obvious - a girl who imagines her crush is there beside her, talking to her, but she knows, deep down inside, she's only imagining it, and she's finally getting over him.

    General Commentits sweet. but kind of overused/pop-ified by now. but still really nice, nice imagery and all. yes, can definately identify.

    General Commentthis is the best song from les mis. she is secretly in love with her friend but nobody knows ["I love him, but only on my own"]. she dreams that someday maybe he'll love her too, but she knows it'll never happen because he's in love with someone else. even so, she'll always love him.
    the lyrics and music are so amazing. the song is pure brilliance.

    General CommentI feel so much for the character of Eponine. I used to and still do listen to this song and sing along because I can sooo relate to it! The lyrics are beautiful and just the soft air of it all... I couldn't explain it in words. My dream is to play Eponine in Les Mis; she is my favorite character and she is so like me.
