Never Knew I Needed
‘For the way you changed my plans. For being the perfect distraction. For the way you took the idea that I have. Of everything that I wanted to have. And made me see there was something missing’
This song is pretty much about two people who feel like they know want they want and know want they need in life and realize through meeting each other that they know don’t want they need. That they have no idea and the realization becomes what they need is love. And they find that with each other. During the cave scene, Peeta and Katniss really kiss for the first time and Peeta tells Katniss the story of her singing on the first day of school. But it’s this kiss, the one where Katniss finally realizes how much she really needs Peeta. One interesting aspect of Peeta and Katniss’ relationship is the evolution. Katniss loves Peeta. Her love, however, develops slowly and painfully. The two start off as virtual strangers, then they enter into an uneasy friendship that finally progresses into love.
