Would you cry if you saw me cry?
And would you save my soul, tonight?
Would you tremble if I touched your lips?
Would you laugh? Oh please tell me this.
Now would you die for the one you loved?
I believe the man does want to be her hero, but he's also posing questions to her that are very relevant to what a TRUE love relationship requires, yet doing so with an apparent vulnerability based on the alternatives he gives when asking the question that would make it something more than just "the here and now".
The words... "Am I in to deep? Have I lost my mind? I don't care... you're here tonight." Signify to me that though he's feeling vulnerable, he's also feeling that even if this is all he is to have...it's worth it to him because he truly loves her. You know...the old saying of..."It's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all".
When you truly love someone you do cry inside when you see them crying, you would do anything to save their soul, you would die for them, (though not in a physical sense, but to self-agendas and ambitions), you do tremble when they touch you in the way "touched your lips" comes across, you would swear that you'll always be with them, stand by them forever, yet at the same time...question if you are in too deep due to the overwhelming need you have to, for, and with that one person. Anytime something is that real, that much a part of you...there is an incredible sense of vulnerability at hand due to the risk you take of losing, not only that person, but also part of yourself which that one person carries with them always.
To me, and I know words can be interpreted differently, when he says...
"I will stand by you forever,you can take my breath away"
He is telling her that he is in it for the long haul, that he is totally and completely devoted to her and their love. That when he dies, it will be with her right there beside him, taking the last breath from his body. I would want anyone to hear this song because it shows the true meaning of relationships.It is based on the idea of a romantic reality. People say and believe that they would be willing to die for somebody they love, and this video portrays how far people will go to protect another person when they are in love.
