"I Will Not Forget You" as written by Sarah Ann Mclachlan and Darren Phillips....
I remember the nights I watched you lay sleeping
Your body gripped by some far away dream
Well I was so scared and so in love then
And so lost in all of you that I had seen

[Chorus]
But no one ever talked in the darkness
No voice ever added fuel to the fire
No light ever shone in the doorway
Deep in the hollow of earthly desires
But if in some dream there was brightness
If in some memory some sort of sigh
And flesh be revived in the shadows
Blessed our bodies would lay so entwined
And I will oh I will not forget you
Nor will I ever let you go
I will oh I will not forget you

I remember when you left in the morning at daybreak
So silent you stole from my bed
To go back to the one who possesses your soul
And I back to the life that I dread
So I ran like the wind to the water
Please don't leave me again I cried
And I drew bitter tears at the ocean
But all that came back was the tide

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis song isn't by Sarah McLachlan. It is by Fisher.

    General CommentThis song certainly IS by Sarah McLachlan...on the 'Solace' album. It's lovely, and quite melodramatic, though I think that works in its favour. Less metaphorical than some of her other songs, the lyrics are poetic and straightforward--they remind me a bit of an old ballad or a Loreena McKennit style story-song. Probably because it's got several lines that set it in a particular time and place, so I get a clear visual image here.

    I think that this part is so sad, and beautifully sung. I love this song

    General CommentHarryThePotter, this is definatly by her.
    Its off her album which I'm listening to now.
    Its a beautiful song and is very emotion.
    Its about someone leaving her, that she loves very much. She doesn't want to let them go, and is hoping they will come back.

    General CommentI think this one is about a woman who married a sailor or an explorer. He went back to sea--the one who possesses his soul, who he loves more than her. So when she finds he's gone, she runs down to the ocean and finds his ship has sailed.
