There you stand, opened heart, opened doors
Full of life with a world that's wanting more
But I can see when the lights start to fade
The day is done and your smile has gone away

Let me raise you up
Let me be your love

May I hold you as you fall to sleep
When the world is closing in
And you can't breathe here
May I love you, may I be your shield
When no one can be found
May I lay you down

All I want is to keep you safe from the cold
To give you all that your heart needs the most

Let me raise you up
Let me be your love

May I hold you as you fall to sleep
When the world is closing in
And you can't breathe here
May I love you, may I be your shield
When no one can be found
May I lay you down

All that's made me is all worth trading
Just to have one moment with you
So I will let go with all that I know
Knowing that you're here with me
For your love is changing me

May I hold you as you fall to sleep
When the world is closing in
And you can't breathe
May I love you, may I be your shield
When no one can be found
May I lay you down

    General CommentWow, why has no one commented this song? Its so amazing and beautiful and I love it!

    So, I think this song is about a guy who loves a girl (obviously) and that even though she's happy and wonderful during the day, at night, her true feeling surface. But this boy is the only boy who can see that, and he cares for and loves her deeply. She might've just gotten out of a long relationship and the boy wants to be there for her and wants HER to love HIM. "Let me raise you up. Let me be your love."
    And he's asking her, "May I hold you as you fall to sleep? When the world is closing in and you can't breathe?" He wants to be there for her, he cares for her so much and doesn't want her hurt.
    "All I want is to keep you safe from the cold. To give you all that your heart needs the most." He wants to protect her and give her the right kind of love.
    And at the end, she might love him too, "For your love is changing me."

    I don't know, but thats what I think the song means.

    General CommentThis whole song is so self-explanatory and I love it!

    She's his whole world and is perfect for her in every way. This is probably one of the most honest love songs I've ever heard and the lyrics have so much passion. It's just magical.
