maybe tomorrow marks the end
of this painful phase we're in
maybe the sunrise shows the way for us
maybe the stars that fill your eyes
are the stars that have been
leading me my whole life
just to end up with you

but when you get too close
i run and hide
close your eyes, count backwards
i don't give up
without a fight
here i come, i'll find you
and love, i'm yours
if you'll turn me out
when you need me, i'll be there
we hide and seek, but always leave
hand in hand

maybe this chapter marks the start
of no more broken hearts
maybe the letters all spell out happiness
maybe the words aren't always kind,
but they're never meant
to make you feel alone,
just to stand up to you

and i'll carry you
if you promise to carry me
we'll carry we
it's a simple thing
you and me

you and me

    General CommentYeah. This song does truly rock. Probably my favourite Velvet Teen song...as soon as the "add lyrics" bit is up, I'll add all the songs I have on my two albums.

    General CommentThe lyrics are beautiful...yeah. If you read them out loud they sound like poetry, the kind a modern writer would be ashamed to write...you don't hear love poems so much anymore, everyone's so cynical. This one is kind of lonely (when you get too close I run and hide) but then it gets that feeling of "it'll be alright". This is the song I'd recommend to someone who feels their love is failing.
