Add your thoughts 18 Comments. General Comment To me this song is deeper than just a love song or the token of someone's commitment. I see this as someone who is obsessive and forceful over a relationship.
Who will do anything not to be alone. He is saying he will be whatever she needs, knowing full well that the promises he makes in the long run he can't keep "I've been running through these promises to you, That I made and I could not keep".
As I'm writing this I am trying to understand if that still is love. I think it might be but it's not a relationship. I guess I'm saying this because I think he's not singing to one particular person. I think he's singing it to every female he could ever possibly be If you want a partner take my hand lyrics. He's a desperate romantic, wearing any kind of mask he has to to get the love he needs.
I'm just saying this from personal experience.
I could be completly wrong though. No Replies Log in to reply.
