Here in this world I'm awaked with mistakes but it's love that keeps fueling me,
fueling me ahhh

Pretty little lady with the swollen eyes would you show them to me
I know I'm not that perfect but just stay awhile baby then you will see

Miles away I can still feel you lay your head down on my embrace,
my embrace, far away

Pretty little lady with the swollen eyes would you show them to me
I know I'm not that perfect but just but stay awhile baby then you will see

Don't give up baby I know that it's shaky just let love consume us, sume us...ahhh

Here in this world I'm awaked with mistakes but it's love that keeps fueling me,
fueling me, to love you
Miles away I can still feel you lay your head down on my embrace
be not afraid to love me

Pretty little lady with the swollen eyes would you show them to me
I know I'm not that perfect but just stay awhile baby then you will see

    My Interpretationthis song is BEAUTIFUL. i think shayley is talking about his long-distance relationship with his girlfriend and how absence is making the heart grow fonder. She's crying because he's leaving, "Pretty little lady with the swollen eyes would you show them to me." but he's telling her to stay with him because he has so much to offer her, "I know I'm not that perfect but just stay awhile maybe then you'll see." i absolutely love the line, "Miles away I can still feel you lay your head down on my embrace." even though he's miles away on tour, when he goes to bed at night, he can imagine her laying her head down on his and that brings him comfort. how cute is that? and shayley's voice sends shivers down my spine. this is definitely the best song they've ever written :)

    General CommentI believe this is a bonus track off of the New OM&M cd "The Flood" coming out on June 14th.

    General CommentSo beautiful. It's the slowest song on the album (aside from The Calm) and really helps to balance out the other tracks.
