"Near You Always" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
Please don't say I love you,
Those words touch me much too deeply.
They make my core tremble.
Don't think you realize the effect you have over me.
And please don't look at me like that,
It just makes me want to make you near me always.
And please don't kiss me so sweet.
It makes me crave a thousand kisses to follow.
And please touch me like that.
Makes every other embrace seem pale and' shallow.
And please don't come so close.
It just makes me want to make you near me always.

Please don't bring me flowers,
They only whisper the sweet things you say.
And don't try to understand me,
Your hands already know too much anyways.
Makes me want to make you near me always.

And when you look in my eyes,
Please know my heart is in your hands.
It's nothing that I understand,
But in your arms you have complete power over me.
So be gently if you please.
'Cause your hands are in my hair,
But my heart is in your teeth babe,
And it makes me want to make you near me always,
Your hands are in my hair,
But my heart is in your teeth babe,
And it makes me want to make you near me always,
Want to be near you always.
Want to be near you always.
Want to be near you always.

    General Commentoh my goodness ... listen to the live version of this song. this song means a lot to me - being terrified to let yourself fall in love and give yourself to someone so completely, being afraid to surrender, is something I am becoming more and more familiar with. giving yourself to someone is hard sometimes, even when that person seems totally worthy of your trust and devotion ... and that is what this song is about. thank you.

    General Commentyes - sweet restraint - you know that if he just does that tiny little thing - like a small kiss or some flowers, you will be entirely swallowed up in love :) :) :)

    General Commentthis song completely and utterly describes what goes through a girls head.. when she finds that perfect boy, and never wants to let him go. :)

    It's nothing that I understand, but when in your arms
    you have complete power over me
    So be gentle if you please 'cause
    You hands are in my hair, but my heart is in your teeth

    i love how she finds the perfect words to describe how this feeling--that feeling where you just want to be in that moment forever with that one person. "my heart is in your teeth" showing that your so engaged in that person your heart is upp and away :)

    General CommentDon't try to understand me
    your hands already know too much anyway

    . . .

    this song, to me, beautifully expresses the feeling you get when you're with that one person who makes you feel a way that nobody else can, and the amount of vulnerability that such a feeling gives one. that kind of vulnerability is hard to submit to.

    hope that made some sense.

    General CommentIt makes me think of a girl who is in love with a guy who she has been dating for some time, but he just wants to mess around and isn't interested in committment. She is telling him to back off, otherwise she will get too attached to him and get her heart broken.

    General CommentThis song is describes perfectly the mix of vulnerability and excitement in a girl's heart when shes completely in love. You want to give in but you're just so damn scared of getting hurt. This song reminds me of a physical relationship and she's scared to let it get to her emotionally.

    "Don't try to understand me, your hands already know too much anyways"

    "Your hands are in my hair but my heart is in your teeth"

    Those two lines seem like she's phsyically involved with him but she's she scared to allow it to become more.
