Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me...

    I have heard this song a thousand times and always thought it was about a love between a guy and a girl until one day I was going through a rough time in life and started talking/praying to God in my car on the way home from work and asked him to please help me and this song came on. I finally got it, he was talking to me through the lyrics. I bawled my eyes out and it was like I was hearing this song for the very first time.

    This song was written by Chrissie Hynde to/for her son. Yes, it does indeed mean all those things that everyone who posts says it makes them feel. But this song was specifically a song from a mother to her son.

    when i listen to this song i feel Jesus talking to me. Like he's saying when we are sad he wants us to talk (pray) to him about it and he will help us and not let anyone hurt us. The part i love is when the singer says "nothing you confess can make me love you less" that just screams Jesus he loves us no matter what we have done! he knows our dark side and he still wants to help us. when we are at a crossroad in life he will see us through to the right choice. thats what i get from this song. i'll probably get a'lot of heat about it but oh well! God bless you all =)

    The song is about the singer standing by her love as he went through drug problems.
