Song Meaning

The narrator confides that, in a moment of weakness, he gave his heart to another person. He then quickly begins to defend himself, and hopes that his true partner will be able to recover. He hopes that his honesty will lessen the blow of the negativity that he forced on his partner. In the refrain, the narrator begins to gush, and wants his partner to know just how much they mean to him. He has now realized that he doesn't need anything from anyone else, and just wants to come back home. He feels foolish for making this mistake, and knows that he'll "never let go" again.

Lyrics

I lost my way oh baby, this stray heart
Went to another
Can you recover, baby?
Oh, you're the only one that I'm dreaming of
Your precious heart was torn apart by me

And you, you're not alone
Oh and I'm where I belong
We're not alone, oh I'll hold your heart and never let go

Everything I want, I want from you
But I just can't have you
Everything I need, I need from you
But I just can't have you

I said a thousand times and now a thousand one
"We'll never part, I'll never stray again from you"
This dog is desperate for a home to your heart
We'll never part, I'll never stray again from you

You're not alone
Ohh and I'm where I belong
We're not alone, ohh I'll hold your heart and never let go

Everything I want, I want from you
But I just can't have you
Everything I need, I need from you
But I just can't have you

You're not alone
Oh, and I'm where I belong
We're not alone, oh I'll hold your heart and never let go

Everything I want, I want from you
But I just can't have you
Everything I need, I need from you
But I just can't have you

Everything I want, I want from you
But I just can't have you
Everything I need, I need from you
But I just
Just can't have you
