We Belong We Belong

Pat Benatar

Many times I've tried to tell you, many times I've cried alone
Always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone
Don't wanna leave you really, I've invested too much time
To give you up that easy, to the doubts that complicate your mind

We belong to the light, we belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words we've both fallen under
Whatever we deny or embrace for worse or for better
We belong, we belong, we belong together

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, when you say


Close your eyes and try to sleep now, close your eyes and try to dream
Clear your mind and do your best to try and wash the palette clean
We can't begin to know it, how much we really care
I hear your voice inside me, I see your face everywhere, still you say

(chorus repeats out)

Interpretation of the hallway scene in the movie. You know - "I owe you everything Scully, and you owe me nothing. I don't know it I can do this alone. I don't know if I want to." At least that's what my memory tells me was said. Scully has tried to tell him that she loves him. Doesn't want to leave him or the X-Files, she's invested too much time in both to give up because he doubts his beliefs. Whatever happens, they belong together. She doesn't know how to tell him, wouldn't know what to do if they finally admitted how they felt. Maybe lying to themselves is a habit. But when he admits how much he needs here, what she means to him, she can't turn back. They'll start over with new beliefs. They still can't begin to know how much they love each other, but she remembers him telling her how much they belong together.
