If You Can't Ride Two Horses at Once... You Should Get Out of the Circus Lyrics

I can't see through the tears in my eyes [x2]
I can't breathe

I feel I failed
I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine
To make you shine

They said this could never happen
They said we could never be
Are you telling...

    I think when you read the lyrics, you will really understand it.

    For the individual who made a latest comment. It's a realistic interpretation. Sometimes women are too concerned about the opinion of others and they forget the love. Sometimes it's too late to renew the relationship because the men in their life got hurt and they don't trust the women any longer. But I think sometimes men also give more importance to the opinion of others and they end their relationship with the women.

    Sad truth but it really happens in real life.

    This happened to me, but the other person didn't feel any love for me. Unlike the latest interpretation were they both loved each other.

    He loved her with everything he had, even felt his sole purpose was to be with her and make her happy, but she didn't feel the same, she cared too much about what everyone else said and decided breaking his heart was worth it to make everyone stop telling her they wouldn't last, or she was just convinced by everyone's opinion, or even she was swayed into believing it actually wouldn't work because everyone told her that.
    The song might not even be about a breakup, but rather a general idea of how women can sometimes forget about love because opinions are more important to women than the men that love them.

    this song is about a break up that was really hard and the person put everything in to it and put a lot into making her happy, then it all went to waste when she left. Everyone doubted them and she finally gave in
