I see a home in a quiet place
I see myself in a strong embrace
And I feel protection from the human race
It's not parental
But it's a fantasy, not a reality
And it's no good, no no good for me you have no idea

That I'm walking through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me

You have a home (you have a home) in a quiet place
And someone else feels your strong embrace
She is protected and she needs no chase
And do you love her
You're a mystery, you are the heart of intrigue
You're no good, no no good for me
That you have no idea

That I'm walking through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me

No it's no good for me, yeah
No good for me
It's so make-believe
You have no idea

That I'm walking through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me
No good, no good

Through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good, it's just no good for me

    General CommentI really see myself in the song. Being with someone you love who cannot love you back because he loves someone else is such a heartaching life.

    General CommentIt's such a simple message that relates on so many levels: You love someone who you can't have.
    It torments you ...and at the same time you can't seem to draw yourself away from them. And that's what kills you...

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite Corrs song. Really sad theme though...the one you love being in love with someone else.

    Oh gee... Five years ago I 'fell' for a guy who lived in another state to me. We used to message each other constantly, lots of flirting, so much in common. I went to visit him and we didn't spend as much time together in person as I'd have liked (his dad had a fall and he had to be with his family). But he was quite a private person - "you're a mystery"... anyway... it fizzled out, he said he couldn't be what I wanted yada yada, it broke me at the time.
    Fast forward a year or so and I was thinking about this guy, I found his sister on social media and happened to discover that he had a child I didn't even know he had, and that he was still apparently with the child's mother... I sent him a pretty terse email lol. I hated the idea that I had slept with him whilst he was still with another woman!! We ended up talking about what happened and it was good to clear the air but man... I would never have gotten involved with him had I known! So yeah, this part of this song reminds me of him.

    General Commenti love this song... even though we don't use the expression "shaking like a leaf" in the US, haha.
