Hello, I am Ashley. I am Ten years old... I cry whenever I hear this song because I think of my Daddy, Mathew... He's an alchoholic. I'm always depressed and I can't take it... My...
When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

When the tears come streaming down your face
'Cause you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
What could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

But high up above or down below
When you are too in love to let it show
Oh but if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
oh and tears come streaming down your face
And I

Tears streaming down your face
I promise you I will learn from all my mistakes
oh and the tears streaming down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

    General CommentThis song means lots to me.

    Me and my gf were madly in love these past two years of college. I left one weekend for a vacation, and when I got back she had changed. No other guy, no lies, or anything like that. She wanted to live life on her own. She wanted to find out who she was inside. There were no warnings, no signs. Just like that one day; all over.

    We tried to hold on, but it was too hard. She couldn't hold on to a relationship, and I didn't know how to not want more when I was with her; I had her, but I couldn't keep her. I could hug her, but I couldn't hold her.
    When I did, it meant different things to us. "When you get what you want, but not what you need". ...yeah. Definitely.

    I had to cut off our contact and walk away, it was getting bad for us; especially me. She thinks I've let go, and that I'm gone for good; but that's not true. She needs the freedom to choose her own life path, even if that means finding someone else. It's tough, but I love that girl that much.

    Unrequited love has nothing on unconditional love.
