I'm not going to lie; when I heard this song on the radio for the first time, I was brought to tears. I couldn't help it; the simple lyrics behind this beautiful song were just so real and heartfelt. There are many of us out there who have truly cared for someone else other than ourselves, but ultimately had to surrender because the feelings were never going to be reciprocated.
What makes this song different from any other breakup song is the fact that the singer is not being spiteful or dramatic. On the contrary, he's actually being a good sport about the whole thing. Even though he wants so badly be to with this person that he loves so much, he's becoming aware that she doesn't feel the same way and that he still has a lot to learn. Although he's hoping that she'll try to change his mind, he knows in the end he'll have to give up for both their sake.
