"Eternal Flame" as written by Susanna Lee Hoffs, Thomas F. Kelly and William E. Steinberg....
Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Is this burning an eternal flame

I believe it's meant to be, darling
I watch you when you are sleeping
You belong with me
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame

Say my name sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And then you come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling

    Song MeaningSomeone once told me it was about contracting an STD and wondering whether it was permanent. I'm sure that's not what they meant, but funny to read it that way.

    My Interpretation"I watch you when you are sleeping"

    No, the speaker is not a stalker. "watch" is as in "watch over" as in protect
    When one is asleep, one is unconscious and unaware.
    Thus: I protect you when you're not aware of things
    or basically it conveys a sense that the speaker is there for the loved one

    General CommentIn this song, the singer is realizing how in love she is with someone. She describes the (burning) feeling her lover gives her as an "eternal flame" --- in other words, she's realizing that this is a kind of love that lasts forever.
