Why don't you feel me
Why can't I hold your hand
(You) never said that you'd leave me
And I know you are somewhere

I held you up
Every time you were down
Your crying stopped
When I was around, but

Why don't you love me?
Enough to stay with me
Now tell me truly
Was it there in your heart too?
All that I'm left with
Is a dream of me and you

You filled my soul
With your beauty and with hope
We're different although
We were just like water in sand

Why don't you feel me
Why can't I hold your hand
You never said that you'd leave me
And I know you are somewhere

I held you close
When you fell to the ground
And now you've torn all my hope apart
You could have said good-bye

    General CommentActually, the entire Lovelorn album is a story about a girl (Amelie) and her lover. Amelie and him had the love of a lifetime, but she ended up drowning. For Amelie is actually from the man's perspective, basically asking why she couldn't stay with him. If I remember correctly, this happens during a conversation he has with a mermaid.

    General Commenthas the feel of a departed loved one, doesn't it? There's a reference to Amelie in Lovelorn as well. Weird. anyway what it's about: Amelie (whoever it is) has left, and liv is left mourning her.
    It feels as though Amelie was depressed or something, and Liv (or her character), cheered her up "Your crying stopped when I was around", but nevertheless, whenever Liv wasn't there, Amelie just went straight back to sadness, and now she's mysteriously gone.

    General CommentIt's beautiful, I cried when I first heard it myself. It's like Liv is only mourning for this person, asking (as if in guilt, or unanswered questions) the person why they left her; was her love not enough to keep (Amelie) by her side? It's sad, it's like saying "You didn't give up or fall down when I help you up and told you to move forward" sort of thing; but Mistress Of Cyanide just explained it :3
