It's a simple thing
Loosing me would hurt you so deeply
I see it in your ocher eyes
Don't let me be an eye blink
In your endless, sleepless eternity
You know you want me by your side

Please tell me why
Take my hand and stop all this debating
Please change your mind
The hourglass only offers so much waiting

'Cause I'm just one of those grains you see
Slipping down the neck of the bottle
Soon the top will be empty
And you'll be out of me

It's the hardest thing
There are too many Forks here in my road
Which is the path that I should choose?
Inside my heart, the answer's
Glinting, hinting, waiting for me to see
The road less traveled leads to you

Please tell me why
Take my hand and stop all this debating
Please change your mind
The hourglass only offers so much waiting

'Cause I'm just one of those grains you see
Slipping down the neck of the bottle
Soon the top will be empty
And you'll be out of me

Here in our meadow
I see you as you really are
Out of the shadows
You are my shining star

Here in our meadow (here in our meadow)
I see you as you really are
Out of the shadows (out of the shadows)
You are my shining star

'Cause I'm just one of those grains you see
Slipping down the neck of the bottle
Soon the top will be empty
And you'll be out of me

You're picturesque
Then there's me, I'm always such a mess
That never makes you love me less
You offer me protection
When all I want is preservation
Please make the time stand still for me

'Cause I'm just one of those grains you see
Slipping down the neck of the bottle
Soon the top will be empty
And you'll be out of me

    General CommentI think this is Basically about Bella and Edward... Duh. But a really beautiful song about the meadow. Eternal Love is all we need, even if we never find it, even if our dreams never come close, you'll have always had some eternal love of some form.
