I am awake, a lonely dreamer
I think of your face
'Cause you take me with you
And I drift away
I can not escape

You lift up
My eyes to
Forever
I'll see you awake

And I'll sing la da da dum
La da da dum
La dum da dum da dum

'Cause you are the fire
And I am the rain
Love is our way
How is it now that I carry on
Without your face

And when you died, I sang, I cried
The words to a song in place of your eyes
To fare these days and dreamless nights
I want you back

But all these dreams are careless things
I want them
But always night, I close my eyes
I want to run
Run to you
In dreams

And I sing la da da dum
La da da dum
La dum da dum da dum

We were in love, so fearless and true
Love is always
So I'll carry on in memory of you
Until that day

And when we die, we'll sing, we'll dine
Tonight we'll see what all this means
The time will come when I will run to you
I'll run to you

But all these dreams are careless things
I want them
But always night, I close my eyes
I want to run
Run to you

My god had it right
For you tonight
And you will see
And you will see us again

And I will sing la da da dum
La da da dum
La da dum da dum

    General CommentOh I forgot to mention the day I recieved this song my friend Ashley told me she had a month left to live according to doctor's because her lung cancer had gotten really bad. I read the lyrics to this song and noticed it is about someone dying. So I went to their website (according to their record company) waitingforautumn.com and it is just a page searching lung cancer. How effed up is that..?
