Wow. After I jumped, it ocurred to me. Life is perfect. Life is the best, full of magic, beauty, opportunity, and television. And surprises...lot's of surprises, yeah. And then there's the best stuff, of course. Better than anything anyone ever made up, 'cause it's real.

You take a stranger by the hand
A man who doesn't understand
His wildest dreams


You walk across the dirty sand
And offer him an ocean
Of what he's never seen


Maybe I was blind
Or I, I might have closed my eyes
Maybe I was dumb
But what I forgot to say
If you didn't know
Is never let me go


Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go


You run from love and don't believe
Unless it catches you by the heel
That even then, you struggle


From red I learned to cross the strand
Your footprints still there in the sand
Everything else, washed away


I may not be alone
Oh I, I may have found my home
I may have lost my way
But what I forgot to say
If you didn't know
Is never let me go


Never let me go
Never let me go

    General CommentThis song is unbelievable! When I first heard it I was so amazed! I think it's from A Million Dollar Hotel Soundtrack.
    The first part of the song is a monologue that can be interpretted as a suicider's toughts while he is falling... "After I jumped"...
    The song seems to be a dialog with God. The man sounds so helpless and asks God for help... "Never let me go".
    This is my way of interpretting the song. It's a great great song! It has something special!
