How (WWSFTCS)

Recommended Posts

Lyrics:

How....

Can I, forget your love

How can I

Never see you again

There is a time and place

For one more sweet embrace

And theres a time oooh when it all oooh went wrong..

I guess you know by now

That we'll meet again

Some how...

How-oww-oww-oww baby

How, can I begin again

How can I, try to love someone new

Someone who isn't you

How can our love be true

When I'm not ooh I'm not oh-over you

I guess you know by now

That we we'll meet again

Somehow...

Time, can come and take away the pain

But I....

Just want my memories to remain

To hear your voice

To see your face

There's not one moment

I'd erase

You are a guest here now...

So baby how...

Can I forget your love

How can I

Never, see you again

How can I ever know

Why some stay others go

When I dont ooh I dont want you to go

I guess I know by now

That we we'll meet again, somehow.....

Time, can come and wash away the pain

But I,

Just want my mind to stay the same

To hear your voice

To see your face

There's not one moment

I'd erase

You are guest here...

Now

So baby how,

Can I forget your love

How can I

Never see you again?

Awesome! =) But I think the line:

quote:
But I guess you know by now

That will meet again

should be "we'll" instead of "will".

This song's lyrics are so so different than anything I've heard from reggie. This sounds really personal. I don't think it is all the way through. But it sounds as if it is. Even though songs like Paris also talks of love the ones that come to mind seem more story-telling than How does. In Paris there's many references and it sounds like just a made-up song. This one is stripped down and honest and clean somehow. I mean, there's no "oh, I wonder what this song is about" for this one. I wonder if it has something to do with the musical. That she got some ideas there. Or something.

Yeah, the lyrics do sound really different. I was just reading this on the quotes thread:

"It doesn’t feel natural for me to write some diary type song. I want to write a classic like Yesterday but weird songs about meatballs in refrigerators come into my head – I can’t help it."

Maybe Reg is trying out this kinda songwriting?

I read a comment on Youtube about how this song could be about Dan Cho or someone who died, and that kinda fits.

Though the lyrics have the romantic sort of theme in them.

I feel like I've said this somewhere before. Sorry if I'm repeating myself! xD

I really love this song. And I've said it before and I will say it again...I really feel like this is maybe a "reject" from the musical. Either way it is super lovely and beautiful and I want to cry tears of joy every time I hear it Smiler

I feel like this style of songwriting-- a classic love ballad--might be influenced by her relationship with Jack. I am sure she has been in other relationships before, but this is the first serious one that we know about, and it might make some sense that a bit of autobiographical emotion might have entered this song..

I feel like this song could be about Dan Cho. I mean, something like the death of a close friend isn't something anyone gets over after a year, and Regina probably wrote this as a way to cope with the loss.

And the raw emotion in it is what I love so much about it. Every time she hits the high note, it also hits the high points emotionally. Such a beautiful song.

There are some pretty glaring romantic connotations (at least to me) in this song which leads me to believe that it's not about Dan. It's the type of song someone would write if they had just broken up with the love of their life/boyfriend or gotten divorced.

I agree with those who say the song is romantic in nature. The verse:

How, can I begin again

How can I, try to love someone new

Someone who isn't you

How can our love be true

When I'm not ooh I'm not oh-over you

says that she'll have to "love someone new," as in a replacement for this person. I don't think a person has to relearn love when a close friend dies, and i can't imagine a need to replace that friend, but it fits a breakup well. Maybe it's to a dead lover, but i think this song is for a lover, imho.

Such a great song, and more autobiographical-feeling than even Fidelity and better, which have always felt like her most straightforward songs to me.

It really does seem to be for someone who has been taken away from her, the feeling unsure of whether she'll see him again. The fact that they must meet again "somehow" seems to indicate that it's improbable from a practical standpoint: he moved away, or dumped her, or even died (the last one feels truest to me. There's a tragedy in this song whenever i hear it). It seems the reason she "has" to see him again, the implied promise that it will happen is because she can't imagine NOT meeting again. Not because it's likely that she will.
