Iris

And I'd give up forever to touch you cause I know that you feel me somehow Youre the closest to heaven that I'll ever be and I dont wanna go home right now    And all I can taste is this moment and all I can breathe is your life and sooner or later its over I just dont wanna miss you tonight    And I dont want the world to see me cause I dont think that they'd understand When everythings made to be broken I just want you to know who I am   And you cant fight the tears that aint coming or the moment of truth in your lies When everything feels like the movies and you bleed just to know youre alive   And I dont want the world to see me cuz I dont think that they'd understand When everythings made to be broken I just want you to know who I am  And I dont want the world to see me cuz I dont think that they'd understand  When everythings made to be broken I just want you to know who I am I just want you to know who I am I just want you to know who I am

Sang them out loud ... And now sobbing uncontrollably.

When ever I hear/sing this song I always think of my crush and make it about him. :)

I love this song!!

This particular song 'IRIS' by the goo goo dolls was in the movie 'City of Angels' with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan. This is where I believe I first heard the song and it was played at the most perfect time and scene within the movie.



The song was probably written for the movie as the lyrics coincide precisely with the theme of the movie.



'Seth' is an Angel played by (Nicholas Cage) who becomes infatuated with a human Maggie, a surgeon played by (Meg Ryan), who can feel his presence. ( I'd give up forever to touch you cause I know that you feel me somehow), and soon becomes one of the rare people who can see him, although she doesn't realize he's an Angel. (I dont want the world to see me cause I don't think that they'd understand).



Meg understands....she just not sure WHAT she is understanding but she knows there is something very deep about this new man she has met, she just doesn't know exactly why he's so intriguing. (Perhaps the fact that he is NOT a man... - just sayin')



The two instantly have a mutual attraction and quickly form a connection between them but it's complicated.... ..(as most relationships are). There are engaging moments between them and it doesn't take long for Maggie to realize something is wrong, very wrong with Seth, esp. after she cuts him with a knife...and he doesn't bleed. ( you bleed just to know you're alive )He must decide whether to break his pact with the spirit realm and lose his eternal life to come back as a human on earth so that he could be in the life realm with the one true love he has ever known...Maggie.



Then ......



Well, you just have to watch the movie.



: )

I love that film! I totally forgot that song was in there, though... oops!

Goo goo dolls have some great songs...all of them hit ya emotionally for sure

Amazing song!

LOVE this song!

Aww I always have to turn the radio up full blast when this comes on in the car.:) So sappy it's ah-dorable!

Another song lyric sent to me by my former affair partner that is hard to hear even 3 years later - but I do love the song and when he gave me the lyrics I know he meant them. I believe he still does, but he's a coward.

Great song!

Classic song, love it.

"I don't want the world to see me 'cuz 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 cant fight the tears that ain't coming, or the moment of truth in your lies. When everything feels like the movies, and you bleed just to know you're alive!" The last part gets to me the most. I used to sing this song every single day walking through the halls of my school where everybody hated me. ( used to be a cutter and I felt like the "you bleed just to know you're alive" part made me feel like somebody KNEW and somebody understood for once.. I loved it ).

When I first heard this song I love it on the spot. I don't know the title and then I asked one of my friends what is the title of this song, he smiled at me and then said: "It's your name."
It made me smile and still is.
