This could be a blessing in disguise.
And I know that you've tried to think that maybe we were put here for a reason.
Well I believe that you have to keep your head up-
And just move on into the dark
With his love burrowed deep in your heart.

Oh please don't fall asleep feeling like the only one left in the
world who's alone.
'Cause you know that I am only forty-five miles away.
And I could be by your bedside in no time, singing you back to sleep.

So when I see you next time, sometime next week-
Take this as an invitation for you to believe that I'm trying my
Hardest to keep that rhythm of yours, that joy of your life safe.
Oh I swear that man was reborn into a boy.
A boy with a smile so cute he could crack you up;
Even in the darkest room.

And when I call you on the phone don't say to me: "Al, I'm feeling lonely."
Jenna, just tell me to, just say: "I want you to take that train tonight."

Oh please Jen, don't leave me hanging on.
'Cause I know tonight I could be by your bedside singing you to sleep.

    General Commenti agree! i am shocked there is only one other comment on here. this song is so beautiful. i think the meaning is pretty straight forward.

    'Oh please don't fall asleep feeling like the only one left in the world who's alone.'

    dont go to bed thinking you're alone, im always here for you.

    "'Cause you know that I am only forty-five miles away. And I could be by your bedside in no time, singing you back to sleep"

    if you need me i'll be there. If you need me just tell me when i'll be right beside you.

    :) loveit.

    MemoryFor some reason, I remember the singer saying that this song was about his sister.

    Anyone know?
