Lie in comfort of sweet calamity with nothing left to lose. Like in the darkness, I'm slowly drowned to sleep nothing left to lose. Three tears I've saved for you. I'd retrace the steps that lead me here but nothing lives behind me. So I lie in this field bathed in the light that loves me, with nothing left to lose. Three tears I've saved for you. Will you be my beloved? Will you help me to get through? Will you be my destruction? Will you help me to be through?

    General CommentThis song is #4 on its CD, so when you say it, it is actually "Four-Ever and a day"......Forever and a Day

    General Commenti think this song is about losing everything that ever meant anything to you.

    "Lie in comfort of sweet calamity with nothing left to lose. Like in the darkness, I'm slowly drowned to sleep nothing left to lose."

    And you are turning to someone you can depend on to make things right again. Trying to seek comfort in someone or something thats always been there for you.

    "I'd retrace the steps that lead me here but nothing lives behind me. So I lie in this field bathed in the light that loves me, with nothing left to lose. Three tears I've saved for you. Will you be my beloved? Will you help me to get through? Will you be my destruction? Will you help me to be through?"

    General Commentto me it sounds like.. hes had a hard time right.. and now he sees hope in putting faith in this person that can save him.. but hes putting everything into them.. so either hell be saved or theyll drop him.. and hell lose everything he had left. i donno.

    its a good song nonetheless.

    General CommentHe has nothing to lose... and nothing to fear. This desparation makes him dangerous and powerful both. He sings to this feeling rising within him wondering where it will take him

    General CommentHaven't heard this cd in a year since today, and i fell in love with it. This song is a great one, and it's just about completely losing out, being dropped to the floor, having nothing left to lose

    General CommentI THINK THAT DAVEY WAS MISERABLE ABOUT SOMETHING WHEN HE WROTE THIS SONG. HE NEEDED SOMEONE TO HELP HIM OVERCOME HIS MISERY. (ONE OF MY FAVORITES).
