"Caught" as written by James Ellis Ford and Florence Leontine Mary Welch....
It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do
To try and keep from calling you
Well, can my dreams keep coming true
How can they, cause when I sleep
I never dream of you

As if the dream of you, it sleeps too
But it never slips away
It just gains its strength and digs its hooks
To drag me through the day

And I'm caught
I forget all that I've been taught
I can't keep calm, I can't keep still
Pulled apart against my will

It's the hardest thing I've ever had to prove
You turn to salt as I turned around to look at you
Old friends have said, the books I've read
Say it's the thing to do
But it's hard to see it when you're in it
Cause I went blind for you

Then you leave my head and crawl out of bed
Subconscious [?]
And for those hours deep in the dark
Perhaps you don't exist

But I'm caught
I forget all that I've been taught
I can't keep calm, I can't keep still
Pulled apart against my will

And I was thrashing on the line
Somewhere between
Desperate and divine
I can't keep calm, I can't keep still
Persephone will have her fill

And I'm caught
I forget all that I've been taught
I can't keep calm, I can't keep still
Pulled apart against my will

And I'm caught
I forget all that I've been taught
I can't keep calm, I can't keep still
Pulled apart against my will

    My InterpretationOh she is so in love and so doesn't want to be! She's 'caught' -- someone has so thoroughly captured her attention she "can't keep calm" and "can't keep still". In spite of everything she knows through wisdom and experience, it's still taking all of her effort not to reach out and call this person.

    The only time she's not consumed with thoughts of this other person is when she's asleep.

    "As if the dream of you, it sleeps too" And yet it still pulls at her when she's awake.

    Really wonderful song that captures the all consuming nature of love when it first begins.
