Watch Over You Lyrics

Leaves are on the ground
Fall has come
Blue skies turning grey
Like my love

I tried to carry you
And make you whole
But it was never enough
I must go

Who is gonna save you
When I'm gone?
And who'll watch over you
When I'm gone?

    i think its about God watching over us and our failure to trust in him and his sadness in letting us go to do what we want without him in our lives.. jmo

    It's about loving someone with an addiction. It's about always feeling the need to protect and nurture the addict but in return not get nothing because they are incapable. It's about walking away in hopes of finding better and in finding someone who can love in return but always caring and thinking about the addict you just left!

    I think this song is about a guy who is inlove with someone who is helpless. He tries to help her and gives her want she wants but it's never enough. She makes excuses for herself in order to get his attention but he is never good enough for her. In the end he leaves her to better himself for once. He talks about who will do everything for her when he leaves and who will put her first, because nobody does.

    I believe it is about loving someone who is having a very hard time trying to overcome an addiction.

    I think that the song is about a heartbroken guy who is in love but doesn't think the girl feels anything for him back so he lets it go instead of confronting anything. But he still loves her secretly and unknowing, until the end, that she actually loves him back too. But then it's too late because he's already gone.
