Meet me after dark again and I'll hold you
I am nothing more than to see you there

And maybe tonight
We'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

If only night could hold you and I can see you my love
Then let me never ever wake again

And maybe tonight
We'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

Somehow I know that we can't wake again
From this dream it's not real but it's ours

Maybe tonight
We'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn
Maybe tonight
We'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

    General CommentThis song means alot to me because it reminds me of a certian relationship that was un wanted but the 2 people loved each other so much they would see each other at night time so no one else would know.

    General CommentThis song and 'Anywhere' give me such a strange feeling... I agree that it has a Romeo and Juliet thing in it, very beautiful, very touching. I nearly start to cry every time you can hear her sing the 'ieeeehhhh' after 'dawn'. If onions can make you cry, this song - and Anywhere - can definitely :P

    General CommentI listen to this song alot, its great. Oh and BTW wrong lyrics... its "Somehow I know that we can't wake again From this dream it's not real but it's ours" Its not 'gone', its 'ours'.

    General Commentno, it's supposed to be "ours" not "gone"

    and why would amy be posting lyrics to a song that is supposed to be unreleased on the net?

    General Comment*blink* Was that supposed to be an insult? Cause really, that was pathetic. If you don't like a band, don't post about them. Really people, an IQ is a good thing to have.

    Yeah, listen to the song, it is "ours." For all I know Amy could've posted it as "gone," but she probably mistaked it for something she was thinking (that is, if it was her). In the versions of the song actually released on internet, there really isn't any debate about it. Ask the lovely folk at Evboard =P.
