    I still enjoy this song because it reminds me of a life experience. This song is about being with the one and only that you wanted to spend forever with. Your life feels like it's over when you break up. As someone once told me, it's like a death. It feels this way because you thought your whole life ahead of you was with her. When you finally realize you can't have her anymore, it's like you died but your still living. This feeling comes out as a shock. You tend to loose 30lbs in a month and a half after realizing it's done. The feeling of getting back with her comes from time to time. This means that it was true love in your heart. It's always unfortunate when only one person is still in love and not the other. If you both are in love and was just confused at the time, then there is a possibility for there to be a renewal. If one has moved on, the other will be forever stuck until he or she moves on themselves. They must force themselves though because it isn't easy.
