"Scanner" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I would take your place
If your world fell down
I would take your pain
And leave a smile
For you

If you feel a kiss
When your dreams are dark
And a voice guides you home
When you are lost
That was me

Sometimes love breaks my heart [Repeat: x1]

I will keep you warm
And I'll wipe your tears away
I'm a shadow
Watching over you
All my life

I would die for you
I would give the world to you
And I'd sell my soul to keep you safe
I love you

Sometimes love breaks my heart [Repeat: x1]

And when God comes for me
I won't go far
Like a smile in your heart
I won't be far away

If you're afraid and need to find me
I'll be here with you
And when you dream and hear me calling
You'll see me again

Sometimes love breaks my heart [Repeat: x1]

    General CommentA song to his loved ones, I think, his children especially. He is telling them that there is no limit to what he would do or give of himself for them. He will always be there to guide them, help them and keep them safe -- even after death.

    I love the chorus. It seldom you see the expression of love coupled with the admission that it hurts sometimes to love and be committed to others at that level. Truly loving your family so much it pains you so see or imagine them suffering or lost.
