"Who Am I To You" as written by Dave Bassett and Elizabeth Fisk Schuyler....
quiet lies beneath the blue moon
couldn't say much less now could you?
it's on your mind, it's in your eyes
but you disguise it, you're so charming
if it's not me you need
to sleep beside
if i'm not the thought
that's always on your mind
if i'm not the reason why
you dream at night
the love you'd never lose
who am i to you?
i'm awake but you're still sleeping
like some secret youve been keeping
you're hard to see
mystery
soon the sun will come and save you
if it's not me you need
to sleep beside
if i'm not the thought
that's always on your mind
if i'm not the reason why
you dream at night
the love you'd never lose
who am i to you?
i feel locked out
my head's so conflicted
everything i am i've contradicted
i'm so caught up but i can't let you go
i need to know
i need to know
if it's not me you need
to sleep beside
if i'm not the thought
that's always on your mind
if it's not me you need
to sleep beside
if i'm not the thought
that's always on your mind
if i'm not the reason why
you dream at night
the love you'd never lose
who am i to you?

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, it seems pretty obvious to me what it is about... or at least, what it seems to be about. She's in/has been in a relationship with someone who she feels doesn't really care about her... she's not his everything and she's asking him what is she then? Trying to clarify her relationship with him in her own mind perhaps.

    The simplicity of the lyrics is really refreshing, i think maybe she's kept it simple for a reason, like... maybe she wrote the song specifically FOR someone, or to try and work out her own feelings or something. I don't know... it just really stands out to me how honest it sounds.

    I love her voice aswell. It's amazing... and the music really suits the lyrics, i think it sounds sort of 'floaty', 'drifty'... 'whispy even =P
    Like she's diving into her thoughts to try and work out her own and/or someone else's feelings, but because they're feelings, they're elusive (hence the 'whispiness' =p) I know that probably sounds a bit ropey, but they're just my thoughts on the song =)
