"Cover My Eyes" as written by Sara Taylor, Michael Hanmer and Michael Rainbow....
I remember the clouds in the summer
And how the light kissed my eyes
When I was a child, it was always this
A life that I left behind

Remember the sun
Remember the rain
They're never gonna touch me again tonight

Cover my eyes tonight
Don't let me see the light

Forever the cold of the winter
Forever the moon in my eyes
Now that you're here, it is always this
I fall to the night and the sky

Forever I cry
Forever I cry
I don't need to run anymore tonight

Cover my eyes tonight
Don't let me see the light

All that we are
Never the same
All that we know is all that we need

Remember the sun
Remember the rain
They're never gonna touch me again tonight

Don't let me see the light
Don't let me see the light

    Lyric CorrectionSome corrections for this song's lyrics are: "Forever I crawl, Forever I cry, I don't know who I am anymore tonight." and "All that we are, never the same. All that we know is all that remains." Source: the booklet for the actual CD of Hide and Seek, lyrics are all there. =)

    Lyric Correction"I don't need to run anymore tonight" - i'm sorry, but isn't it something like
    "i don't know could i have anymore tonight"? I'm not sure though, with my limited english knowledge )

    My InterpretationTo Me, The Song Is About The Protagonist Falling In To A State Of Insanity
    Due To The A Loss (Or Breakup Of Some Kind) Especially In The Last Verse When She Say "Now That You're Here It Is Always This" May Or May Not Refer To The Fact That She Has Lost Her Mind, Which Is Why She Can No Longer Rest Seems To Have Lost Her Connection To The World, And What Made He Human "I Fall To The Night And Sky" "Forever I Cry, Forever I Crawl" "I Don't Know Who I Am Anymore Tonight" The First Stanza Refers To Her Loss Of Hope Falling To The Sameplace Again And Again, Second Stanza Refers To Her Empty Depression And Emptiness, And The Last Stanza Refers To That Her Memory Has Fallen To Pieces And Identity Has Been Shattered Forever Remaining Unhappy.
