    Posted this on my wall.
    Per Meatloaf. “I want you. I need you. But I’ll never ever love you. Two out of three ain’t bad.” (or close to this)
    So, perhaps not so sad.

    For Amy. My interpretation:
    The writer loved “her” so much he/she did not want to hurt “her” so pretends to love her.

    Poignant and beautiful.

    For those who don’t understand, it means that he loved her enough to pretend that he didn’t love her any more than he would a friend.
