"Lord I Guess I'll Never Know" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
I heard you stirring in your sleep last night
I was awake with something on my mind
What happens when I leave, will you come with me?
These things I guess I'll never know

Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
Tell me, who do you touch when you come in your dreams?

I know that sometimes I get lost
Been asking questions since the day I could talk
Life is sweet but when my bones get cold
Will you be there for me to hold?

Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
Tell me, who do you touch when you come in your dreams?
Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
Tell me, could it be yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You holding me

Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know (repeat)

When you die in your dreams
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Will I be holding you?
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
When I die in my sleep
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Will I be holding you?
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
When you come in your dreams
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Am I holding you
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
When you come in your dreams
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Am I holding you
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know

    -Richard Ashcroft hope to find his father in heaven

    Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
    Tell me, who do you touch when you come in your dreams?

    -This Person (may be Ashcroft father) is really sick and knows that, had dreams about dying every night

    I know that sometimes I get lost
    Been asking questions since the day I could talk

    I know that sometimes I get lost
    Been asking questions since the day I could talk

    -Ashcroft make so many questions about the sickness, that make the person uncomfortable, but it is normal for him, he can't help it, but him father seems to be a very wise man that answers everythig

    Life is sweet but when my bones get cold
    Will you be there for me to hold?

    -Ashcroft is not prepared to the depression and desesperation the death certainly will bring

    Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
    Tell me, who do you touch when you come in your dreams?
    Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
    Tell me, could it be yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    You holding me

    -Ashcroft father dreams that even if he dies, he will still looking for the son

    When you die in your dreams
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    Will I be holding you?
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    When I die in my sleep
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    Will I be holding you?
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    When you come in your dreams
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    Am I holding you
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    When you come in your dreams
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
    Am I holding you
    Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know

    -And end with a vulnerable pray

    A beautiful song, thanks the Verve............
