I've been watching you and all you do
For quite some time
Knowing all the ins and outs of you
I should've known what was on your mind
But all the world is spinning round and round
Inside my head tonight
I will fall into the darkness
And I fear I will never see the light

I've been watching you and all you do
For quite some time
Knowing all the ins and outs of you
I should've known what was on your mind
But all the world is spinning round and round
Inside my head tonight
I will fall into the darkness
And I fear I will never see the light

The light

So let me in
All that I wanted from you
Was something you'd never do
So let me in
Oh please tonight
Don't let this end
Tonight
I'll fall

Through no light the darkness seems to be
So very strong
How does one alone against the world
Find the strength to carry on?
What happened to the way we used to love
It seemed as though life had just begun
But now that love has come and gone to fade away
Like the setting sun
Cause you won't let me in.

All that I wanted from you
Was something you'd never do
So let me in
Oh please tonight
Don't let this end
Tonight
Cause I'm starting to fall
So let me in

It was all that I wanted from you
It was something you never knew
To let me in
But not tonight
For this is the end
Tonight
I fall

    General Commentthis song could be written about me. :) i am in love with this guy who i know, in a way, loves me too. but he can't find a way to leave and get over his ex-girlfriend (which happens to be a heinnus witch) because he is just so used to her. but the precious moments we did spend together (the *tonight* Mo sings) i know meant as much to him as they did to me. so i'll just have to wait til he lets me in.

    General CommentI feel this song is about loving someone who sees you as just a friend and has no idea about your true feelings. And no matter how good of a friend they are it would never be enough to make you truly happy.

    General CommentThis song is really special for me. I have a girl friend that I really liked, she had no idea for the longest time. Then one night i told her and she just wanted to be my friend. All i wanted from her was to let me in. She said she was still hung up about an old boyfriend. I was really sad after that but ill just have to wait until she lets me in.

    General Commentcould be for me...i just cant over my ex boyfriend and this is the barrier that i have to get over for someone else to get in me..and tt someone else had been very patient and nice and eveything...he doesnt know tt i knew hes in love with me..but u can always sense this kinda stuff..but this song could also means that a relationship is goin downhill and he has shut the door and wouldnt let her in"what happened to the way we used to love",..

    General CommentThis song makes me cry, even if I have a wonderful relationship..

    Love doesn't last, even if it seems so perfect.
