Iris by Goo Goo Dolls

I was listening to this beautiful song Iris by Goo Goo Dolls, a NY based rock band, the other night. Suddenly It struck me that every time I heard this song, it evoked a different set of feelings. And each time, I relate to the song in a different way.

Its almost like the song reads out the story of my life.

I guess every single individual perceive songs in their very unique ways. Whats your way?

Heres the lyrics for you:

And I’d give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t want to miss you tonight

And I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive

And I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

PS: those of you who haven’t heard this song before, here’s the official video.
