I like to watch you from above
it's not an ordinary love
I like to feel you
so close to me
I bet I'm nearer than you'll ever see

and I'm sitting up against the wall
trying to find the way
I'll play it safe
in case I fall from yesterday

you're letting me live
inside of you
you're letting me live
as someone new

I wanted to be
forever young
you and me now I'm forever free
I wanted to learn from my memory
you're never cold
though you're not here to hold

and I'm sitting up against the sky
trying to find the way
nothing to do but to wonder why
it's not yesterday

you're letting me live
inside of you (inside of you)
you're letting me live
as someone new (as someone new)

believe in me 'cause I believe that

somewhere there is an angel
watching over your life
sometimes there is a silence
somewhere a face in the light
know this place is where i am
know this face is of me
know I'm watching over you
do you feel it too?

you're letting me live
inside of you
you're letting me live
as someone new

(you're letting me live)
somewhere there is an angel
watching over your life
(inside of you)
sometimes there is a silence
somewhere a face in the light
(you're letting me live)
know this place is where i am
know this face is of me
(as someone new)
know I'm watching over you
(know I'm watching over you)

(you're letting me live)
somewhere there is an angel
watching over your life
(inside of you)
sometimes there is a silence
somewhere a face in the light
(you're letting me live)
know this place is where i am
know this face is of me
(as someone new)
know I'm watching over you
(know I'm watching over you)

    General CommentThis song was written by Alice for her boyfriend when she knew that she was dying from cystic fibrosis.
    It is about how she will continue to live inside of him and watch over him.
    It is so full of sadness yet also gives the hope that she will be able to live on as someone new. Know I'm there and remember me and let me live not remembering the pain and sickness, but as a new person.
    It is so powerful and full of extreme emotion, I can't help but be deeply moved every time I hear it.
    Such a sad loss to the world.
