Almost Lover

There are a few songs that I make me get emotional when I listen to them. It doesn't really matter if I've personally experienced the subject of the song, it still hits me, especially when they are so beautifully sung. A few of these such songs are: 


Samson by Regina Spektor
Just A Dream by Carrie Underwood
Forever & Always by Taylor Swift
Concrete Angel by Martina McBride
Believe by Yellowcard
Gravity by Sara Bareilles
Three Wooden Crosses by Randy Travis
Travelin' Soldier by Dixie Chicks
The Only Exception by Paramore
White Flag by Dido

And than this is the song I've been listening to currently:


       Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy

       Your fingertips across my skin
          The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you would never let forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy
To walk right in and out of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
