A fire burns
Water calms
You cool me down
When I'm cold inside
You are warm and bright
You know you are so good for me
With your child's eyes
You are more than you seem
You see into space
I see in your face
The places you've been
The things you have learned
They sit with you so beautifully

You know there's no need to hide away
You know I tell the truth
We are just the same
I can feel everything you do
Hear everything you say
Even when you're miles away
'Coz I am me, the universe and you

Just like stars burning night
Making holes in the night
We are building bridges

You know
When you're on your own
I'll send you a sign
Just so you know
I am me, the universe and you

    General CommentI think it's about knowing somebody so well that you understand everything about them, almost to the point that you will think things the same way, you are almost the same, in a sense. And even when you aren't together, you can feel what they feel themselves. A deep kind of empathy. It should be, "I am me, the universe, and you", as in, "We are the same person, same entity, same soul" - Soul mates, maybe..?

    General CommentI love this freaking song!!! I think it is about loving and knowing someone so well that they can cure you of almost everything. Its about an understanding and believing that love can turn you into the universe and eachother.

    General Commentand the part "When you're all on your own, I'll send you a sign, Just so you know..." see for me, and i'm spiritualist, this for me is my guides and spirits and things and they send me signs, and it goes, the whole song that everything is connected in the world and spirit...

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I was playing a video game and listening to it on my cd player. I had to put the song on repeat! I was like "What was that song?" and listrened to it all day. I love this song, my second fav on the cd, tied with Other Side of the World. I think this song is about the ultimate love. Knowing someone so well that it's pratically like you are them. It's kind of like when they say you know the instant a loved one is hurt, but all around from when they are happy, to sad, to thinking about you. It's true love. You're both one.

    General CommentI got KT Tunstalls cd a couple of days ago and it's such a nice album... I would have to agree with ima introvert I like the acoustic version better than the one on the cd :) It sounds so much better and you can really enjoy her voice on that version :D Anayways... Really great song by a great artist!
