I had to take
To see it close
But you're already there
Right next to me
But would you ever fly
Out of a place to be

You breathe in slowly
And let you hold me
I loved you so many times
When you were next to me
You weren't here in the place
I wanted you to see

This is our song
Full of silence
Sleep we knew
She wants nothing
But to wake
To find you there

But once you whisper
We fade in mourning/morning
And we look at her
And her sleeping face
Full of rest in mind
And never know my plea

This is our song
Full of silence
Sleep we knew
She wants nothing
But to wake
And find you there (you there)

    Those lyrics are pretty much all wrong. Here are the lyrics as found on the Devics' site: I had to taste To see it close But you’re already there Right next to me How could you ever find A better place to be You’re breathing slowly I let you hold me I left you so many times While you were next to me Your brown hair on the bed I wanted you to see This is a song For a silent sleeping girl She wants nothing But to wake and find you there The words you whisper They fade in morning And when I look at her And her sleeping face Her foot resting in mine And then I know my place This is a song For a silent sleeping girl She wants nothing But to wake and find you there, you there

    Loving this song. I think that its about realising how much you love this girl while she lays next to you asleep. 'you breathe in slowly and let you hold me'
