It's getting near dawn
When lights close their tired eyes
I'll soon be with you my love
Give you my dawn surprise
I'll be with you darling soon
I'll be with you when the stars start falling

I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love

I'm with you my love
The light's shining through on you
Yes, I'm with you my love
It's the morning and just we two
I'll stay with you darling now
I'll stay with you 'til my seas are dried up

I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love

I'm with you my love
The light's shining through on you
Yes, I'm with you my love
It's the morning and just we two
I'll stay with you darling now
I'll stay with you 'til my seas are dried up

I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song about sex and -- love of course -- my darling!
    mr. clapton & cream -- i give you much thanks for this song.

    It's getting near dawn
    When lights close their tired eyes
    I'll soon be with you my love
    To give you my dawn surprise
    I'll be with you, darling, soon
    I'll be with you when the stars start falling
    ok -- i always thought it was dose of pride.. but i guess it is dose of prize -- wtf? this guy thinks his dose is a prize to her! ok i guess i get it now...
    anyway, what he is saying is that he has been working hard just to be with her and in fact he has worked all through the day and into the wee hours of the moring slaying dragons and his reward is to be with his one love. he reminds her that she is going to be seeing some stars falling soon.. after they are together. dawn surprise sounds a bit nasty. i sometimes wonder if this love thing is ellicit. regardless, stars will be falling and soon and there will be lots of them -- really -- stars will be falling from heaven and the lights are not going to be aware of what is going down.
    there is a dirty vibe in this song. beautiful but dirty. even if it is dirty, it is still beautiful.

    I've been waiting so long
    To be where I'm going
    In the sunshine of your love
    he has been waiting (not been with anyone else) and btw that sun (the center of his universe) is damn hot in case you weren't aware!

    I'm with you, my love
    yep, he has made it home (inside her) and they know each other now -- in the biblical sense.
    it's the creaminator makin babies!

    The light's shining through on you
    she is so beautiful and he sees her in the magical light of thier true pagan love.

    Yes, I'm with you, my love
    It's the morning and just we two
    I'll stay with you, darling, now
    I'll stay with you 'til my seas are dried up
    i truly doubt he actually owns a sea (in this reality at least), but sometimes seeds and sea can be thought of as the nearly the same things. whoever else might have been there is not there now. they are going to be busy for a while yet - until those seas are good and dry.

    I've been waiting so long
    To be where I'm going
    In the sunshine of your love
    again, this is a love song, he is telling his darling that he needs her love and being with her is the meaning of his life -- his purpose. like those stars that fell, the sunshine of her love is a magical experience.

    I'm with you, my love
    The light's shining through on you
    Yes, I'm with you, my love
    It's the morning and just we two
    I'll stay with you, darling, now
    I'll stay with you 'til my seas are dried up
    they are still getting busy, he wants to reassure her. don't worry, i love you and won't be leaving. you are my darling and i exist for you. give yourself to me and btw i have these seas that need drying up.
    she couldn't shake him off even if she wanted to. he is crazy for her and don't even know how to say it!

    I've been waiting so long
    I've been waiting so long
    I've been waiting so long
    To be where I'm going
    In the sunshine of your love.
    he truly needs to be with his lover.
