When I close my eyes
To this paradox place
I'll fly away
Far away from here
I get away and dream
Dream of you

When it's all said and done
And the night has come
I'll disappear
Take flight on the wind
Of wishing you were here
Fading light
Like a star who's life
Has been gone for years

And I'll fly
Fly across the sky
And I'll leave
Leave it all behind
If you'll be here
Here with me tonight
I'll be fine
I'll be fine
I'll be fine

Then I'll disappear
Take flight on the wind
Of wishing you were here
Fading light
Like a star who's life
Has been gone for years

And I'll fly
Fly across the sky
And I'll leave
Leave it all behind
If you'll be here
Here with me tonight
I'll be fine

    General CommentAbsolutely fucking incredible. Doesn't need to be decoded or anything. He thinks about someone he loves a lot before he goes to sleep, and how he would leave everything to be with them.

    General CommentThis Song is the most beautiful song i have heard since Something Corporate's "Konstantine". Mae is Genius. This is the type of song that Changes the way you feel the minute you start playing it, and then you keep re-playing it to keep capturing that feeling.

    General CommentYou can find it on Mae's newest cd "Destination: B-Sides", suchiquitabanana.

    This song is great. I'm actually using it as one of my opening songs for a talk I'm giving on a religious retreat in March. It may not refer directly to God, but if you listen to it, the lyrics, for example,
    "I'll leave
    Leave it all behind
    If you'll be here
    Here with me tonight", can be taken into a religious context, as if I were saying I'd leave behind this life without Jesus if He would come be with me tonite. When I first heard this song I never even concieved it in a romantic context, but rather a religious one.

    It's beautiful either way. :-)

    General CommentWho is doing the vocals on this song? Doesn't sound like Dave to me. I saw them live during the summer. There was this guy that did the, "Driving away, leaving it all behind" part in "Summertime", which reminds me of is voice.
