"Iris" as written by and John Rzeznik....
And I'd give up forever to touch you
'cos I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'cos sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'cos I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah, you'd bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'cos I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'cos I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

    General CommentAre you joking?! Keating has a far nicer voice than the singer from the goo goo dolls.

    General Commentlol, no offense, but Ronan Keating's voice is, um... humorous. And what's with the video that accompanying it? It's got nothing to do with the song...

    General Comment*siiiigh* ok I'll go down load the goo goo dolls' version and then I'll comment..

    LMAO, fuck me, ronan keating's version shits all over the goo goo doll version, anyone here who said otherwise needs to grow some fucking ears or develop a devent taste in music.

    anyway, I didn't even know this song existed until about a year ago.


    and for the record I'm not a big fan of either of these singers. I'm just saying it how it is.
