"I can feel you waiting for me when the sun retreats to the hills and I,
Below the blanket of a burning sky,
Wrap myself within.
Embraced by dead leaves as the rain leaves trails of black down my face,
and I,
Creep through the twilight to that hidden place, beyond the lonely.
I'll meet you..

(chorus)
Tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us now.
(oh)

I can feel you dreaming of me and the time when our steps are retraced,
and I,
Creep through the twilight to that hidden place, beyond the lonely,
I'll meet you.

(chorus)
Tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us..
(ohhh)

(Breakdown)
I can feel you dreaming of me,
I can feel you dreaming.
I can feel you dreaming of me,
Beneath a dream, Beneath a dream
I can feel you dreaming of me,
I can feel you dreaming.
I can feel you dreaming of me,
Lost in a dream, Lost in a dream.
(ohhhhh)
(chorus)
Tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us!"

(END)

    General Commentthis song is wester by afi, but the band wester has a song afi .... woah ... woah ... i think this song is about being in love with someone and having it be a forbidden love in which they can only consecrate it in the woods at night ... their secret place. they dream of each other until then, and in that one night they can be together.

    General CommentIt needn't only be a person who he is in love with. It could be about him indulging himself in anything forbidden which he is captivated by

    General CommentI don't know if any of you have heard this before... But I was told by my friend that he wrote it thinking about Syrup in a cafe or something.... Maple Syrup. He's a pretty reliable guy too, so I believe it. There's obviously another meaning, but I guess that sparked it or something...

    General CommentI don`t think the 'smile' is in there. Just a groan. And what are the backing vocals in the breakdown? One of the things that makes AFI special to me and takes them apart from other bands is the way they use backing - even if it`s just 'ooohhh' like in Days of the Pheonix.
