"Counting Down The Days" as written by Matthew Prime and Natalie Imbruglia....
You were right
And I don't want to be here
If you're gonna be there
Was that supposed to happen?

I'll hold tight
I'll remember to smile
Though it has been a while
And without you doesn't matter

There's no room
No place to start
When our souls are apart

I want to travel through time
See your surprise
Hold you so tight
I'm counting down the days

Tonight
I just want to be
A million miles away from here
I'm counting down the days

How you've been
It's just the usual here
And days are feeling like years
And every day's without you

Now I cry
Just a little too much
When I think of your touch
And every thing about you

I feel cold
I'm in the dark
When our souls are apart

I want to travel through time
See your surprise
Hold you so tight
I'm counting down the days

Tonight
I just want to be
A million miles away from here

I want to travel through time
See your surprise
Hold you so tight
I'm counting down the days

Tonight
I just want to be
A million miles away from here

I'm counting down the days
I'm counting down the days

I'm counting down the days
I'm gonna be your surprise
I'm gonna hold you so tight

I want to travel through time
See your surprise
I'd hold you so tight
I'm counting down the days

Tonight
I just want to be
A million miles away from here

I want to travel through time
See your surprise
I'd hold you so tight
I'm counting down the days

Tonight
I just want to be
A million miles away from here

A million miles away from here

    General CommentWow I didn't know she wrote this for her husband.. It's definitely a very good song.

    Actually when I first heard this song, the feeling I had was kinda like she was singing about a future perfect love. It's like singing about someone who is lonely in a way and is dreaming about meeting the guy who she can love sometime in the future. And I can relate to that actually.

    But now that I know she wrote this for her husband, yeah it makes perfect sense, I wonder why I didn't think about that in the first place.

    My InterpretationBeautiful song. Natalie is really one of the best female singers ever. I love her. I was wondering about this lyrics and kinda thought of someone who has died. The travel through time stuff would be a way to skip this life and meet the missing one in the next life. It kinda fits, i don't know. What you all think?

    General CommentIt is a song about being physically a part from the loved one. She was living in London while her husband was in Australia, because of their carrers they had to live so far away. Australia is the other part of the world, and you really feel the huge distance. I lived in Sydney for 3 months, I loved it, but I felt the distance from home. Natalie was in London, but all her family, her husmand, and cildhood friends were in Australia. Travelling through time makes me thing of the fact that in Australia they are 11 hours in the future than in UK. So while she goes to Australia to "surprise" her beloved husband, she feels like she is travelling 11 hours in the future
