You remind me of my girlfriend. If this is you, the puzzle piece I've been missing, then please let me know. I believe you and trust you. I miss you and I love you. Most of all, I forgive you and I want to move on, with you in my life. I know we just got into it, but I had to do that because I couldn't move on any other way. I had to finally get you mad at me to say a few things I needed to hear.
Pure Love | Reviewer: Spring | 2/23/10
Long time ago, I can say about 9 years before, a boy (17) fell in love with me (19) who was 2 years younger than me. I rejected him several times until he went to another country.2 months before he came back and we met after 3 years of being apart and I fell in love with him in the first sight. he was not a the naive boy I used to know, but a man. a real one. now, he has to go back and ..... this song was send to me by him....., He gave me the purest feelings and love I have ever felt, in other words " enough love to holding on".....

i cheated on my boyfriend. i cheated on my love my everything. i thought that we shouldnt be together but he wouldn't leave me. we werent right for each other. i tried everything. so i planned to kiss someone else..to go to his house and kiss someone else so i could tell him and he would leave me finally. stupid, stupid and cold. thats what i was. i didnt think how it would hurt him. i just thought it would work and now i think it might. when the words spilled from my mouth waves of our relationship crashed through my head. our happiness. i had been happy. i realized that instead of focusing on our future i should just be happy with what i have now. if he gives me another chance i wont think of breaking up with him anymore. i will be happy and enjoy how amazing and loving he is. i will never cheat on him again. i never wanted anyone else. he is the only one i will want. now i feel completely empty and black. i feel like i have been torn because i hurt the person i love more than anyone. the person who has done so much to me. i hurt im empty. i love him. i love him. and now i might not be able to show him and prove to him that i am only his and always will be. i cant take my mind off of him. and i repeat the same words over and over in my head. i'm sorry. i'm so so sorry. i'm sorry. babe i'm so sorry.
I don't want so it is. | Reviewer: Robbie Libra | 1/28/10
loving for 2 years.She said our love was fading,she don't love me anymore.But all the taking things after she like some other guy.I don't care about the betrayed thing.It's make me suffering.Everyday,everynight was hard for me.Drunk for the night,so i can sleep,but wake up in the midnight.just like some kind of zombbie,i can't feel anything.I can't take my eyes off her.The stuff killed for so many times,I just can't wake up.life is living is hell.
Wrenching yourself away | Reviewer: Alice | 1/26/10
For me, this song is a tragedy. Two people still in love with each other, but wrenching themselves away, trying to forget and bury the memories. It's been sometime since they broke up and most of the time "life goes easy" on them, but they are haunted by love lost. Like she says: "Did I say that I loathe you? Did I say I want to leave it all behind?" A chapter closed, tinged with regret.
Mon Chéri Yann. Je t'aime à toute ma vie! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/11/10
I travel all around the world for my new experiences. I like to discover new things, meet new friends and of course love. I first didn't know exactly what love was until I came to France for my master study and met a French guy. We first had a hard time to communicate because our language differences. But I didn't want to the language to become the problem and block our way of love. I took some more lessons at school so that I could be able to communicate with him and his family. He was so nice, was always correcting my mistakes when I spoke with him. I was so in love...I would say "crazy in love". He taught me how to love and what love was. He guided me the way to find the truth to happiness. I finally opened my heart for him and always kept him inside my heart, locked it so that he wouldn't be able to escape. I never looked at other boys besides him, because everyime, everything I looked, I could only see him. He was always in my mind, my thoughts and he was part of me. I felt true love and it was the love that I will never forget.
cold, cold water... | Reviewer: Sunshine | 1/9/10
i can definitely relate to this statement:
"Once upon a time, seems it was a lifetime ago... i fell in love with a beautiful girl... I told her you're beautiful, i told her you're amazing... i'll do everything for you... i begged her on my knees to give us a chance... i devoted poems to her ... i knew i could turn the world around for her... and then, after fighting for her for half a year i gave up... and now i feel nothing... emptiness... i guess i will not love anyone like that anymore... and i do not love her either anymore.... This song reminds me of my Suzie..."
sounds like something that had happened to me.. i was so in love with him, dint hold anything back - thats where i was wrong. i never thought it would be possible but now, i feel nothing too.. how can someone feel nothing? i guess this is what Pink Floyd was talking about when says "comfortably numb".. though i dont love him anymore, i dont think i would love that way again.. and that scares the shit outta me. but yeah, this song is one of the many songs that reminds me of him..
leaving everything behind | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/25/09
the stunning lyric in this song makes it appeal to everyone, despite knowing its origins, it really doesnt matter. For me it reminds me someone I loved very very much who said to me what if we dont ever get a chance again, someone who I couldnt take my eyes off of, someone who couldnt take his eyes off me but life being what it is couldnt allow. He died suddenly last year and this song breaks me up to pieces where the meaning of the song changed to me having to leave it all behind..Despite this I still adore the song as in a weird way it brings him back and puts song to what I am going through.such a beautiful beautiful song

I love this song. I cant take my eyes off you is such an amazing lyrics which touch me all life long.
A girl is working with me. I find myself is loving her but I dare not say anything as I am actually in relationship.
I tried to wipe out the memories with her but I simply cant take my eyes off her.
What an amazing songs.
the pupil in denial. | Reviewer: Hannah | 11/8/09
In case anybody wanted to know
the actual meaning behind this song,
here it is:
Damien explained it at one of his concerts.
The Blower in question wasn't a clarinet teacher, but the cockney rhyming slang for the telephone (Stick with me, I know it sounds ambiguous!). Before he was in Juniper Damien worked at a call centre selling mortgages and loans, and spent all day on the telephone. He grew sick of speaking to people for 8 hours a day without seeing anyone's face, and he began to fantasize about the people behind the many voices he heard. One summer day he phoned a house and a girl with a melodic soft, sweet voice answered the phone. He was calling for her father, but he wasn't in. Protocol said he should have ended the call and phoned back another time, but he was mesmerized and enchanted by her voice and ended up chatting to her for over an hour. Damien began a secret relationship of sorts with the girl, always calling when he knew her father wouldn't be home just so they could talk, despite knowing that it could get him sacked. He dreamed of her at night, daydreamed about her all day long.
This continued for over a month, but one day he called and there was no answer. For the next week he called again numerous times a day, but still nobody picked up the phone. Confused by this abrupt end to the relationship, Damien became angry and obsessive (you were right about the obsessive bit) and found out the address of the girl. He took a day off work and got the bus out to the address.
Hidden in a hedge he watched the front door fervently for any signs of life, but he didn't expect what he finally saw. The voice was unmistakably the same, and as she shouted 'bye mum', closing the front door behind her Damien was amazed to see that this dreamgirl of his was wearing a school uniform. He couldn't believe his eyes and could not stop staring at her in shock. All the pieces of the puzzle finally fell into place - she was at home during the school holidays, led him on and played games, then when school started back she just stopped. Damien was angry but obviously couldn't tell anybody about it for fear of being branded a perv. He left the company and formed Juniper shortly after.
Windy love | Reviewer: Shackelton | 11/6/09
My true love just sent me this song. Its about life, about feelings. Just the same things she makes to me in such a wonderful way. I dont know if we will ever be together, we would love to but such is life. Anyway, we do love each other. That is the most important thing even thou the wind blows in another direction.
Honesty | Reviewer: rachel | 10/21/09
Why can't everyone speak like this? So real and honest and uncalculating. It's like watching someone break down and tell you everything they're really feeling, no more "I'll be fine"s. Excellent song by an excellent lyricist.
tonight | Reviewer: jenny | 10/12/09
tonight I found out that the person who introduced this song to me has passed away. I miss him and I can't keep my mind off of him. He was a beautiful person just like this song. U will always b on my mind. RIP JRM.
life goes easy on me. | Reviewer: Steph | 9/25/09
Two years ago, I fell in love. We were next to each other everyday, with our walks and talks and getting though any hurt that came our way. He was so wrapped up in a girl who didnt want him, that he never saw me there that everyday, loving him with all I had. Three months later I met a boy who saved me, my boyfriend of almost two years now. Id be a liar and I was if I said that i didnt think about my lost love, if I didnt still miss that lost love, if I wasnt still in love with that lost love.
Two nights ago, while still dating that boy who saved me, I kissed that lost love, and after talking away a bowling ball pit in my stomach, all I want to do kiss my lost boy again.
My boyfriend will never know. Im in the inbetween place of wanting our moment to disappear and keeping it forever for just me to him to remember.
