Went away to you
Ten million hours gone
You could turn
Soon
There in the air
Where I can't move
I sing
Just sing to you
Goodbye my love
Goodbye...

    General CommentFirst Team Sleep song I ever heard also... So very haunting, Its brought tears to my eyes quite a few times.

    I just feel like its about some sort of forced separation, and the feeling of hopelessness when you realize you can't turn back.

    General CommentOne of Team Sleeps demos. The song starts out with haunting sounds and then drifts into Chinos ethereal sounding voice. This song is a nice piece. This song then goes into the next demo DJ mix song called The Passportal, which is on The Matrix Reloaded soundtrack.

    General CommentDangerdave is right.

    Also, this was the first song I ever heard by Team Sleep.

    I think the second song I heard was Cambodia, but that was named Ever (Foreign Flag) on the album. I still have the demo version of that. It's better than the album version, I think.

    But yeah, this song is my favorite by Team Sleep.

    General CommentIt's about dying in a plane crash after seeing someone you love for the last time.

    "When I waved to you then you knew I was gone

    He waves to his loved one before he gets on the plane.

    "there in the air where I can't move"

    He's up in an airplane. He says goodbye once he knows the plane is going to crash.

    Song MeaningI think it might be about saying goodbye to a loved one then overdosing on heroin, it seams like a far shot it just seams like "There In The Air Where I Can't Move" could be referring to not being able to move because of a heroin high, because u can move on an airplane.

    General CommentWhen I Waved To You
    Then You Knew I Was Gone
    You Calmed Down
    So
    There In The Air
    Where I Can't Move
    I Sing
    Just Sing To You
    Goodbye My Love
    Goodbye

    I think these are the real lyrics.
