    Question have always related to

    Hi Teacher / Mates,

    When I check the Space Oddity song from David Bowie, someone left a message in the Utube...
    I have always related to this song.

    I know that "relate" means either making connection or showing sympathy with sth/sb.
    But when we use it in the way above, does it mean (i) her background has something really related to the content of song?
    Or no, it just means (ii) she just loves this song?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Kindly regards,

    Re: have always related to

    It indicates some sort of connection, probably to the lyrics. But it is impossible to know what the connection is from that sentence.
