"Ask Me Now" as written by and Marcus Tobias Dahlstroem Tomas Nils Naeslund....
And so one morning just before dawn you came
Out of the forest towards my window
With a smile in your hand
As the moist air up to your knees started swirling like smoke
I saw your lips move
Asking: did you lose something?
I stood glued to the window

Emotions running through my vein
Now I know a word I can't explain

I think I've known you all along
Just lost your face in the crowd for awhile
I think I have been holding my breath all my life
Can I exhale and go into exile
So ask me now and I'll run away with you

And so one morning just before dawn you came
Did you lose something?
And so with the dawn you've come
Eye to eye with nothing in between but this fragile glass
Your lips move again
I try but I can't detect the vibrations in the air
How I've still early and I see your words getting caught
In the window slowly turning into frost

I see your hand move and I can't detain
Scraping down a word I can't explain

    General Commentin the words of christian, the lead singer:

    It is a story song and was one of the first lyrics I wrote for the album. I think at the time it was easier to write a story to try and paint a picture of an emotional state. It is not a literal picture or the story of an event – more a fictional story that reflects an emotional state. The first verse talks about being in a cabin and waiting for someone to arrive and the feeling as they approach. I didn’t want to connect the characters in this song. It is about the moment before connection. We all tend to get a picture of how something is going to be before it happens. We get an idea in our heads and when it happens that picture changes. This is about that moment You realize where you are and what is about to happen, and if you are connecting with another person you realize they have a picture and it probably isn’t the same as yours!

    General CommentCorrection:

    "Emotions running through my vein
    How I know a word I can’t explain"


    I'm pretty sure it's this:

    "Emotions running through my BRAIN
    Now I know a word I can't explain"

    General Commentthis song reminds me of Matthew 4:18 when Jesus calls his disciples to follow him. Simon and Peter are so intrigued by Jesus' call that they just drop what they're doing and go to become "fishers of men." This song is sort of along the lines of Pitiful when Christian talks about looking away from Jesus' eyes, but in this song Christian "lost your face in the crowd for a while." Anyone else see the similarities?
