"Fallen Embers" as written by Nicky Ryan, Roma Ryan and Eithne Ni Bhraonain....
Once, as my heart remembers,
All the stars were fallen embers.
Once, when night seemed forever
I was with you.

Once, in the care of morning
In the air was all belonging.
Once, when that day was dawning
I was with you.

How far we are from morning,
How far we are
And the stars shining through the darkness,
Falling in the air.

Once, as the night was leaving
Into us our dreams were weaving.
Once, all dreams were worth keeping.
I was with you.

Once, when our hearts were singing,
I was with you.

    General CommentI'm gonna fucking cry... this song means so much to me... long story but I had an incredible night with a guy who still likes me, but can't love me until he gets over his last girlfriend...

    Kyle, I'll wait forever for you

    General CommentThis song makes me cry, seriously.

    It means something completely different to me. My boyfriend lives 500 miles away and it reminds me of the summer that we were together and now, I miss him so much...

    General CommentAnother strong tie to this song.

    This song speaks to me as describing the night I was in labor with my first child. I labored all night and she was born in the morning. She died 2 days later due to major complications during her birth. This song appeals as though it was written just for me and my experience.

    Once, as the night was leaving
    into us our dreams were weaving.
    Once, all dreams were worth keeping.
    I was with you.

    Once, when our hearts were singing,
    I was with you.
