Never Say Never Lyrics
Rather do without
And just hold a smile
Falling in and out of love
Ashamed and proud of
Together all the while
You can never say never when we don't know it
Time and time again
Younger now than we...
Theres a guy and a girl..
They never talk much.. They've had a past.. but it faded. They'd rather live without the talking, without the fighting.. and just hold the smile as they remember all the good times.
He is ashamed of loving her. She is ashamed of loving him, it is a secret, they are apart, but together all the while.
But you can never say never,
so they try time and time again to put the pieces back where they were before. They fall apart, but they pull it together again.
she hopes the moment will last: "dont let me go.." she pleads in her head.

I believe this to be about love. How the guy is still in love with the girl (or vice versa) but the girl is starting to lose touch or forget the love that the he showed her. It relates to me and the boy I love because I don't want him to leave me. He's my best friend and though things crumble I'll never stop loving him.

A guy and a girl get separated in the world. They are looking for each other but it isn't looking good. The guy and the girl know that they are under the same sky, moon, and sun. They will never say never, because they know that they will some day reunite again.

My interpretation is that this song is more about life. Not so much a couple, but of course this song could have a million different meanings. It could be about a disease, where they're dying and it is life they love, but because of their disease/condition, they just feel that they have to let go of life. The secret part is more about diseases people don't want to talk about like anorexia. Just in general about people loosing the will to live. And the watch over bit where the world is crumbleing down, it could be life or your religious figure saying don't let go.

this song to me is about a relationship that keeps falling apart and they're living in the lies of it and wont let it go because they're afraid to be without each other,ive been through a relationship like this, overall tho i think the meaning is what u make it to be.

They don't want to face the problems in their relationship. They stay together through everything, and they basically have eachother trapped, because they are scared to be without eachother. That's how I feel about the song, anyways, because that's how I feel about my relatioship sometimes.

I think it’s about two people who like each other but never really say it cause they're unconsciously waiting for the other to do so. They get used to what they have that they never become more. So they are stuck in a place where they feel they don't have a right to each other but still they can't help feeling jealous when they do. They go back and forth between trying to forget and making up after fighting all the time because they need each other too much to let go. And despite all, they cling to what they have even when it's less than what they want because it makes them happy and they don’t know how else they could.
Or it could be just me feeling that way.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
