i can definitely relate to this song | Reviewer: sasori | 2/5/08
ahm..the story goes like this, i had loved a guy for almost 4 years..we've been together for 2 years..though they migrated to a diffrent country we survived a long distance relationship for 2 yrs..then he met a new girl nd fell inlove with her..so he broke up with me..after that we ended everything including our communication..i tried to love again..i have lots of suitors..nd i actually like some of them..but it's so hard for me to totally commit again to a serious relationshp..because im still inlove with my ex boyfriend..then 2 yrs passed..all of the sudden we ended up talking again thru YM..he asked for my number..we become friends again..he even call often..although the girl he chooses over me is still with him..i mean they're still together..but somehow i believe that after talking about the things that probably cause our past relationshp to fail..i have this notion that he's still inlove with me..though im not sure..or maybe im afraid to believe or im blind..whatever..and now this song is definitely one of the songs that i can actually sing to him..our break up is our fault..not just his, not just mine..but i think we still love each other..but im afraid that he won't be leaving his gf just because of what we still feel for each other..hhhaaaay...if he feels the same way, then how can we be friends.....

well i know everyone says this relates and mine relates in a way too because i met this guy at a summer thing and he really liked me and i liked him and all and we were always together and on the last night we noticed that it was "time to go" and how it would be hard to live without each other. and he kissed my cheek because we knew things would be different from now on, and right now were just friends but i still love him and all.

This song is one that I've heard like a million times. And Like most everyone elses in theses reviews it really hits home because it applies to me so closely. For me it relates because I recently got dumpped by my the love of my life (our third break up total). we've been through a lot relationship wise and I this song parralels us because it reminds me of when I plead for her to come back to me from another guy whomk she told me she had fell in love with far more deeply than she ever had with me (between our second and third try together). When he sings in the song :"its better than silence" I see that as saying it's better than not admitting I still loved her though it made me look like a panzi! I couldn't help myself but confess what I had held in for months while watching the agonizing progression of her growing farther apart from me and closer to "Him." When they finally broke up I was so desperate i tried to scoop her up off the rebound--like he had did originally (that Fuckin Bastard!) Naturally after having been in two relationships so close together she needed space and time and quite naturally she rejected me at first, but I kept trying. We got together after she finaally gave in but it only lasted a couple of weeks before she changed her miond again--honestly I think she never wanted to be with me but just didn't know how to tell me.
This Song is so simular to my situation. I think it appeals to everyones heartache and dramatic romantic situation differently. but I think everyone may be overlooking the fact that the song has a subtle mention of another guy--a third party so to speak with the line "He's right you know, we can't go on like this". That mention of "He" reminds me of "he" in my situation who shall remain nameless. And to this day "I have the hardest time resisting" her but it's clear she dosen't "feel the same way." I tried so hard "to give [her] everything" too. Its torture everyday, I ask myself each day "How can we be friends" after all we've been through...after all the I love you's and wonderful times we spent together? But our current state of being awkward friends I'll take. after all, "it's better than silence." BUt I will remain steadfast and try out this "friendship," if you can call it that! BEcause in the end "If I fail, well than I fail, but at least I gave [her] something" :-)
If I Fail | Reviewer: amber | 12/7/07
This song is exactly where I have just come from. I was randomly shuffling through my songs in iTunes & this one came up. I listened to the lyrics & coudlnt believe how much it relates to my current situation. My best guy friend & I always kind of knew there was something between us, & it seemed like every single day someone was telling me we should be together. When we both came out with how we felt we started to persue it but realized that we were risking so much. Things are rough right now between us but there is no way i could ever resist him, like the song says. He is with a girl now that i know will break his heart, & when she does, i will be right here for him. That is how we are. Maybe years down the road things will change, but i would rather have our friendship than nothing at all. i couldnt imagine not being his friend. This song is amazing. it gives me hope. i love cartel.

This song totally described how I felt this summer. The lyrics were like my theme song. I am so totally glad that Cartel wrote this song!!! I love it!!!
i can't believe. | Reviewer: selena. | 11/20/07
This song is beyond amazing. i love it so much.
the lyrics always get stuck in my head and i always sing it to myself when i see *him*. so i get the meaning of the song that they are best friends wich me and "Him" are. the best of friends. Everyone can tell that we have something that no one can really explain, but it's a good thing. Practically everyday i have someone telling me to get with him. i wouldn't mind being with him but the problem is that i wouldn't want to loose his friendship. we have such a good bond and such a strong connection that doing anything about it would just ruin everything. We tell eachother constantly that we are just friends. kind of like brainwashing eachother. idk;it's a good system.

Freaky Deaky | Reviewer: Gamin | 11/2/07
This song is eerily parallel to my current situation. i have a boyfriend. and i like him very much, but i only went out with him because i was on the rebound from this other guy whom i've been in love with for three years. i realized i could never be with him so settled for my boyfriend. BAD IDEA. now it's been ten months with my boy and i can't get the love of my life out of my head. to complicate things, my love is either also in love with me, or gay...
this song makes me feel better.
if i fail | Reviewer: jen | 11/1/07
its about best friends who have that connection and they both feel it but she is fighting it... and he is telling her that since they have already taken that chance by starting something then they should try it completely give it a shot cuz if they both have that feeling then they will always have that lingering thing going on if they don't.
everything that is going on in my head | Reviewer: shelby | 10/31/07
i have heard this song so many times but recently it has meant so much to me. I recently had to say goodbye to this boy that i loved because i was so scared that things wouldnt end well and we could never be friends and just end up hurting eachother beyond repair in the end. But now im ready to take that chance but it just might be too late. :/ but cartel is amazing. :)
