"Bizarre Love Triangle" as written by and Stephen Paul David/hook Morris....
Every time I think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine
But it's a problem I find
Living a life that I can't leave behind
But there's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of the fool won't set you free
But that's the way that it goes
And it's what nobody knows
Well every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say

I feel fine and I feel good
I'm feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
(Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say)
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say

    General CommentThe singer is in a Bizarre Love Triangle. He loves one woman, who is now his ex-girlfriend. He is also in a relationship with another, new woman. However, the singer is not certain if he really does love the new woman or not. He wishes to go back to his ex-girlfriend and waits for her to say "come back to me!" He fears that if he makes any action he might hurt his current girlfriend.

    > Every time I think of you
    > I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue

    Everytime I think of my ex-girlfriend, I get a shocked (probably by the fact that he laments over his lost relationship).

    > It's no problem of mine
    > But it's a problem I find
    > Living a life that I can't leave behind

    It isn't a problem of his (but it really is if you look at it). He is living a life that he cannot leave behind. He wants to live a life with his ex-girlfriend... he can't put the past behind him. He is a past dweller.

    > But there's no sense in telling me
    > The wisdom of the fool won't set you free

    You can tell the singer that "let go, she is no longer your girlfriend, go on with life." But try telling that to anyone who is deeply in love. Love is blind and the singer still wishes to be with her despite the fact it is "wrong" and nonsensical.

    > But that's the way that it goes
    > And it's what nobody knows
    > well every day my confusion grows

    No one really knows why we do these illogical things for love. Every day the internal rift between the ex-girlfriend and new girlfriend confuses the singer more and more. He loves his new girlfriend, doesn't he? Yet, he still desires his ex-girlfriend.

    > Every time I see you falling
    > I get down on my knees and pray
    > I'm waiting for that final moment
    > You say the words that I can't say

    The singer hopes the ex-girlfriend will fall (i.e. get into a bad situation with her current boyfriend). The final words are "come back to me" or "I love you"... basically he wants his ex-girlfriend to make the move.

    > I feel fine and I feel good
    > I'm feeling like I never should

    At this point the singer mentions how he is with another girl. He feels fine and great. But he regrets his decision.

    > Whenever I get this way
    > I just don't know what to say

    Whenever he thinks about his love triangle, he is confused. He isn't sure what to say ... he isn't sure which girl he really loves as he still has feelings for both.

    > Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday

    Of course, he wishes everything was back to square one. Him being back with the ex-girlfriend and the new girlfriend never meeting him... everyone all happy with no problems.

    > I'm not sure what this could mean
    > I don't think you're what you seem

    He is still confused, and he isn't sure if the new girlfriend is really someone who should be his girlfriend.

    > I do admit to myself
    > That if I hurt someone else
    > Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be

    The implication here is that to hurt someone else means he is going to be more serious with another relationship. However, in doing so this seals the deal that he may never get back with his ex-girlfriend.

    This somewhat contradicts my other statements, but I think it is implied that he is "hanging out" with someone else new. He should move on with his life, but he holds back because he hopes his ex-girlfriend will come back to him. If he becomes more serious with his new friend, then he dooms the old relationship forever. He fears this commitment... and thus is in the Bizarre Love Triangle.
