It Must Have Been Love - Roxette

Alright, this is a nice song. When it comes to melody, it will surely captivate your ears. However the song talks about a lost love... one that just disappears for no reason.


Then I was reminded of a story of my friend who said his love disappeared for the reason that he felt neglected.


In a relationship, sometimes it is nice to feel that one is needed.  It may be too tasking, that is why I said "sometimes" one has to feel that they are needed, especially for the guy who feels that he has to serve his partner as much as he can, as much as he is needed.  You know how guys tend to be protective all the time.  It's not as if being protected means admitting that a woman is weak.  It's probably just nature.


Everyday, most of the decisions are coming from the girl and out of courtesy, the guy gives way.  But it didn't do well between them, at least for the guy. He just though everything would turn out all right but it didn't. Their daily arguments, struggles and decisions in life originated from the girl.  Bravo to the girl for being able to handle relationship.  But relationship is a two-way process. 


The girl was too strong, the girl was so sure of what she was doing and the guy, who is so overwhelmed at what the girl could do, didn't feel his existence anymore, much less his importance to her life.


Out of the blue, the guy just said "I am exhausted" - exhausted for trying to capture the girl's attention and be noticed in at least voicing out his feelings.  He was duped into believing that the girl can do it so what is his use?  It even didn't occur to the guy that the women will be hurt.  No inkling at all.


He said goodbye. Goodbye is a hurting phenomenon and he didn't even realize that the woman will surely be hurt. He didn't see it coming, he did not have an idea that a strong woman could actually feel hurt.


It must have been love, they could have been a perfect couple... but it's over now.  Worst, they just parted ways like the never shared love each other.


It is always sad when lovers become enemies.  I myself, cannot understand it. Why?




Lyrics of the song
IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE


Lay a whisper on my pillow 
Leave the winter on the ground 
I wake up lonely, is there a silence 
In the bedroom and all around 

Touch me now, I close my eyes 
And dream away... 

It must have been love, but it's over now 
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow 
It must have been love, but it's over now 
From the moment we touched till the time had run out 

Make believing we're together 
That I'm sheltered by your heart 
But in and outside I turn to water 
Like a teardrop in your palm 

And it's a hard winter's day 
I dream away... 

It must have been love, but it's over now 
It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without 
It must have been love, but it's over now 
It's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows 

It must have been love, but it's over now 
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow 
It must have been love, but it's over now 
From the moment we touched till the time had run out
