You could have the sun
You could have the water
This I'd give you
You could be the moon
You could be the harbour
I arrive to
You could come over
You said I'm the one
the one to hold you
Does that go for others too

It's no surprise

Yesterday around 4am
I thought about you
for a second or two
I know it's no good
I feel so lonely
sleeping without you
How come your arms are not around me
I said I'm the one
the one to hold you
But I guess he said that too

It's no surprise

    I've not heard the original version but Dallas Green from Alexisonfire does an absolutely gorgeous version of this song. Really tugs at the heartstrings!
