Somebody take me,
away from the darkness,
somebody take this from me.
If anyones out there?
If anyone hears me?
Somebody take this from me?

I was begining to think
i had lost my mind.
Fell upon it hard
and fell upon my hardest times.
But the way she lit the room at night
cast shadows to their gloom.
And i still dream of your perfume. I would do anything to be with you.

Edelweiss,
angel why?
Comfort me, From so far away.
angel white dream of mine
Come for me, From so far away.
Angel eyes sweet love of mine.
Come back to me,
though so far away
Please dont cry
Theres still time
I wont change.
So far away
Please dont cry
I wont.

    General Commentcarrying the same melody as ten ton brick, this song is an after thought...he misses her, he feels alone.
    Edelweiss by the way is a rare flower with white leaves indigenous to the Alps.

    General Commentecopro is right, the edelweiss reference is showing that she is his one and only (so to say) she was the one for him and he has lost her and can only dream of the times they had together

    General Commentmy favorite off the album.

    straightforward meaning with amazing lyrics, the Edelweiss reference is heartwrenching and beautiful

    And I simply love the crescendo towards the end

    General Commentoh my GOSH, this song just strikes me but in some different way. those first 2 stanzas i can relate to SO well and that 3rd stanza means to ME, maybe not J, but i'm in love with this girl i havent met, we just randomly met online and miraculously we fell in love and we're a PERFECT match but we have this issue that we live...a few states apart. and i'm a suicidal and depressed person and she's the only one that can help me and does help me with that. and its hard on me that she's not here.
    i dont know...i cant really explain.

    General CommentI'm gonna agree with EcoPro. (Y)


    But this song is BEAUTIFUL.

    Especially, yes, the cresendo towards the end, the references to Edelweiss.
    J. Loren just has a way of writing that pulls out so many emotions.

    My favourite band of all time =]
