If I'da known the way that this would end
If I'da read the last page first
If I'da had the strength to walk away
If I'da known how this would hurt

I would've loved you anyway
I'd do it all the same
Not a second I would change
Not a touch that I would trade
Had I known my heart would break
I'da loved you anyway

It's bitter sweet to look back now
The memories withered on the vine
Just to hold you close to me
For a moment in time

I would've loved you anyway
I'd do it all the same
Not a second I would change
Not a touch that I would trade
Had I known my heart would break
I'da loved you anyway

Even if I'd seen it coming
I'd still'd see me running
Straight into your arms

I would've loved you anyway
I'd do it all the same
Not a second I would change
Not a touch that I would trade
Had I known my heart would break
I'da loved you anyway

I would've loved you anyway

    What does this song mean to me? Everything. For me it's talking about the one girl who I have ever loved with every fiber of my body. It's impossible to put it into words. We were in love and she died. Simple as that but 3 years later I haven't let go. Lucy I love you.

    I agree. This is the most beautiful way of saying "no regrets"

    this song describes feelings beyond words.....a moment in time that you will always cherish and would go back to even if    you knew your heart would break in the end...it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all....Love is what makes you understand all things....poetry...music....movies....

    and it makes you look differently at all things in life...and how precious these moment are that U R living and don't realize...everything is temporary...and so you must enjoy every moment in your life now.... not that it matters much difference....but I'm not quite sure if she broke it off or if he did....becuz at the end it looks like he is chasing after her trying to find her...I think he was a jerk...and then realized it and changed his mind but...it was too late.... "like the spent arrow....words can not be retrieved once released"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
