Lyrics
I see your eyes, you’ve seen me cry
You know I’d do anything to be with you
But somehow we drifted apart and it broke my heart
I tried to talk to you one night
But we ended up getting into a big fight

I said things that I just didn’t mean
It was desperation that made me scream
The thought of losing you drove me mad
I just couldn’t cope with life without having what we had

Because you’re the girl who owns my heart even though we’re still apart
I hope you find the difference between what I say and what I mean

I used to see the love in your eyes
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul
I used to think that love couldn’t die
But apparently there was something that I just didn’t know

You ended it all much too fast and my heart, it shattered like glass
I shouted things that I soon would regret
Is there any way now we can forgive and forget?

So girl, I guess that is where we stand today
Can you forgive for being so cruel on that terrible day?
I’ll love you forever, until I die, and those words were never lies
Hope you find the difference between what I say and what I mean
Can you hear the difference between what I say and what I mean?
Can you feel the difference between what I say and what I mean?

Analysis: Perhaps the best pure pop song I ever wrote, this simple piano ballad about a breakup contains a pleasant melody and some high-end keyboard work in the arrangement.
