We Belong by Pat Benatar.

I actually remember this song from when I was younger but never paid much attention to it until about two years ago. I guess I had to relate to it in order to really like it. And I did. It reminds me of a guy I knew in college that I loved more than anything but it didn’t work out. He had his own issues and I wasn’t doing too well at the time either. Whatever we had was complicated and if things could have been different, maybe a different time or place, then I honestly believe we’d be together.

A line that rings most true from the song is, “Maybe it’s a sign of weakness when I don’t know what to say, maybe I just wouldn’t know what to do with my strength anyway. Have we become a habit? Do we distort the facts? Now there’s no looking forward, now there’s no turning back.” It reminds me of all the times he could never say what he was really thinking or he just didn’t know how to. And all the times I didn’t know if I was strong enough to go on without him. But we somehow got stuck in a really bad habit that was taking both of us down. He couldn’t give me what I wanted and I was fed up, yet somehow we were always brought together again waiting for the next “storm.”
