Lay your head next to mine
and know that things will be fine
cos here tonight,
this sleeping world is ours
its ours alone.

All your fears cast aside
here now, turn to the light
cos here tonight,
this sleeping world is ours

In all i see the futures here tonight
here by my side
and all i dreams to see us in the light together you and i..
and i

Lay your head next to mine
and stare at, the stares in the sky
cos here tonight,
this sleeping word is ours..
its ours

In all i see the futures here tonight
here by my side
and all i dreams to see us in the light together you and i

Then you said,
into the daylight
i will be at your side
know that i'm with you tonight

into the daylight
i will be at your side
know that i'm with you tonight

into the daylight
i will be at your side
know that i'm with you tonight

into the daylight
i will be at your side
know that i'm with you tonight

into the daylight
i will be at your side
know that i'm with you tonight

in all i see
the future's here tonight

    General Commentfirst of all...this is an absolutely amazing song.
    my ultimate freedom1/new empire song, and i can never hear it enough...

    jez is writing about a girl, obviously, but this is so much more than a love song,. this is a song of comfort and reassurance and most importantly of hope.

    he is hoping for a girl who share the beauty of this world with him, a girl who will lay under the stars with him, without a care for anything else, because everything the need is right next the them. with all their fears cast aside, and all of lifes troubles pushed aside, he speaks of a moment in which all he sees is her, and all he cares about is her.

    on a deeper level, he is hoping for a relationship which is shaped in a way which his god would desire it. by encouraging her to turn to the light, he is saying, lets do this his way, lets hand our fears to him, and live this life in his arms.

    alll he dreams about is to see him and his love in gods light, in the truth, and in his eternal presence.




    finally, he reassures her, gives her a promise, which is not at all unlike the promise jesus gives to each and every one of us.

    into the daylight, i will be at your side. know that im with you tonight.





    he is saying, lets face the coming day with no fear, because we have each other to lean on, side by side, with no hesitation. never forget, im with you now, and i will always be right here.


    together, you and i.
