You had the blue note sapphire eyes, to back up all those gazes
To pierce my guard and to take my soul off to faraway places
Told me I'll never be alone, cos you're right there

We took a gamble with this love, like sailing to the storm
With the waves rushing over to take us, we were battling against the tide
You were my beacon of salvation, I was your starlight

So don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive cradled in love
Don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive cradled in love

I kept the love you gave me alive, and now I carry it with me
I know it's just a tear drop from mother earth, but in it I can hear a dolphin sing
Telling me I'll never be alone, I know you're right there

So with the fire still burning bright, I wanna gaze into your light
If I could see my fortune there, you know how flames can hypnotize
Do I even dare to speak out your name for fear it sounds like, like a lover

So don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive cradled in love
Don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive

Cradled in love

    My InterpretationI love this song! More of the world really needs to be exposed to the awesomeness of POTF. Anyway, I keep flipping back between two possible interpretations for this song.

    1). This is a song singing about a significant other who recently passed away. She gave him the love he always needed and managed to get through all of his guards that kept him from getting close to anybody. He's telling her that even though she is no longer alive in the world, she is still alive in him, essentially "cradled in love". He will always love her, and because of that she will never truly be dead.

    2). My other thought is that it could be the opposite way around. He could be the one who passed away. He is telling her not to cry because she's alive still "cradled in love" that he gave her. He's in peace because of the love they shared.

    I'm leaning more towards my first idea, but I think you can look at it from either way.
