"Priceless (For Eleanor)" as written by and Brandon Charles/pasillas Boyd....
I remember when I'd run to you
Through field of white flowers
Your embrace is my air
How I needed you there
And all of the world and
All of it's powers
Couldn't keep your love from me no
Couldn't keep your love from me

'Cause I need you
Like the dragonfly's wings need the wind
Like the orphan needs home once again
Like heaven needs more to come in
I need you here like you've always been

And then I waved good bye to you
From fields of white flowers
You were so proud of me
I was too proud to see that
All of the world and
All of it's powers
Couldn't keep your love from me no
Couldn't keep your love from me

'Cause I need you
Like the dragonfly's wings need the wind
Like the orphan needs home once again
Like heaven needs more to come in
I need you here like you've always been

Taking for granted
(taking for granted)
And all of her smiles
Could not be reminded
That got away

And now I'm looking up at you
In fields of white flowers
You were so proud of me
I'm so proud of you
All of the world and
All of it's powers
Couldn't keep your love from me no
Couldn't keep your love from me

'Cause I need you
Like the dragonflies wings need the wind
Like the orphan needs home once again
Like heaven needs more to come in
I need you here

I need you
Like the dragonfly's wings need the wind
Like the orphan needs home once again
Like heaven needs more to come in
I need you here like you've always been

La da da da

    General CommentIt sounds as if his love died...
    "and then I waved goodbye to you"
    "I need you here like you've always been."
    "all of its powers couldn't keep your love from me."
    "now I'm looking up at you from a field of white flowers"

    I'm not sure at all, just what it seems like.
