Lie awake and look through the trees
My Dear, My Dear...
I am waiting, breathe my name
My Dear, My Dear...

Drift now to sleep, fall with the rain
My Dear, My Dear...
I'm not awaking, forget my name
My Dear, My Dear...

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. The lyrics are so simple, and the instrumentals and Barry's voice are so soothing...If I could fall asleep to him singing this song to me every night ::sigh:: it would be wonderful.

    My OpinionI actually think the 7th line is "upon awaking, forget my name."

    This song always seemed really sad to me, like a lullaby in death. It felt like he was singing to someone who's time had come to die who was holding out. He's singing to them telling them that it's OK to go and to not wait for him, like they have another life to live without him. Like they need to fall asleep so that they can "wake up" in their next life, or afterlife or what-have-you. It's not his time to die so he can't "wake up" with them and he wants them to move on without him.

    Either way, it's a beautiful song. Wonderful in it's simplicity.
