"Space They Cannot Touch" as written by and Keir Nuttall....
How's my luck
But somehow I'm with you
Let's leave now
Let's leave them,
Their point of view
My favorite place is me and you

I wake up in the darkest night
Watch you breathe in shadow light
A perfect world lies next to me
And I don't need to sleep to dream

I just hope I am good enough to keep you

Morning sun warms our skin
And distant sounds
The day begins
Soon their world will come calling for us
But this is the space they cannot touch

I just hope I am good enough to keep you

    My InterpretationThis song is beautiful. It's simple yet profound. The lines 'Let's leave them,
    their point of view' resonates with me so much in that my family are somewhat not accepting of the relationship that I'm currently in. Although I understand their 'point of view', it's quite irrelevant when it comes to my understanding of what I share with this person. I think it comes down to appreciating and accepting other people's perspectives and forging your own understandings & way though life.

    General CommentBeautiful song. Heard this on Triple J the other day. To me it's about a woman who's stoked to have this 'perfect' man and how she feels when she's with him. She sounds a bit paranoid about losing him though. Which is understandable, hell.. things like this are usually too good to be true >/

    General CommentTo me this song is about a person who finds a special person & she's describing how much she likes him/her & how she doesn't want to loose them. She feels like they are invincible & no one can get to them when they're together. She also seems to be insecure about keeping them.. Blagh

    General CommentI am in love.

    I find myself in the middle of the night staring at you as the moonlight shines on your chest as it rises and falls with your breathing. I can't help but smile because I realise how perfect you are and how you make the life I live perfect too.

    I wake up with the sun warming my face. The day is beginning, but this moment, right now - this is you and me. The day will start, you and I will have to join in, but right now, this is you and me.

    I hope you love me as much as I love you.

    General CommentI love this song, it's so sweet and simple, but really powerful at the same time. I think the song is about how the girl does not want to destroy the perfect world that she has with this other person. My favourite lines are:

    "Let's leave them and their point of view. My favourite place is me and you."

    General CommentWhen i first heard this song i thought it was Kate that wrote and sang the song but it was actually Keir Nuttall one of the unknown song writers that is a awesome ability to write song that come straight from the heart.
