Lyric discussion by CerebralVomit 

For a class assignment my friend and I were told to write a short story. We used this song as our inspiration. We wrote about two people in a world of racism and hate. On the minority side, the two were constantly abused in many ways. They happened to meet, and he shocked her with his views on the world that countered her very harsh and negative attitude. They became best friends, and inevitably fell for each other, but of course didn't realize the other felt anything for each other until (in correspondence with the lyrics), they were walking together. She wants to try and change her perspective on life to be better for him.

Roughly our translation of the song was the same. Two people stuck in a world of hate, with two different views on life, but are the best of friends. Love drives them to want to be better for the other.
