Here in your coma
Here in your sleep
You have lost yourself somehow

I can't stand to see you cry

Tonight

You dream under lonely eyelids
Find what you're looking for
You sleep in underwater silence
Alone

Here in your empty
There's no breeze
Claustrophobic in your skin
Refuse reflections
When they're from me
So in my eyes they will end

Tonight

You dream under lonely eyelids
Find what you're looking for
You sleep in underwater silence
Holding me down

Tonight
You are emotionless
Hold on
And on

You dream under lonely eyelids
Find what you're looking for
You sleep in underwater silence
Holding me down
Keep me alive in you
Just keep me alive in you
Just keep me alive

    Song MeaningI've always listened to the song taking it as a very literal 'ohgod you're comatose let's sing about how I miss you' song, using the stillness in its literal sense, as opposed to a metaphor.

    I viewed underwater as the sob wave-of-tears junk, and the silence as 'her' inability to acknowledge the crying.
    The lonely eyelids happen to belong to the singer, and the descriptions are his imagination running with what sort of world she must be in.

    'Tonight, you are emotionless, hold on and on..', as a coma patient must to..um. Not die.
