When I look up from my pillow
I dream you are there with me
Though you are far away
I know you'll always be near to me

I go to sleep
And imagine that you're there with me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you're there with me

I look around me
And feel you are ever so close to me
Each tear that flows from my eye
Brings back memories of you to me

I go to sleep
And imagine that you're there with me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you're there with me

I was wrong, I will cry
I will love you till the day I die
You were all, you alone and no one else
You were meant for me

When morning comes again
I have the loneliness you left me
Each day drags by
Until finally my time descends on me

I go to sleep
And imagine that you're there with me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you're there with me

    General CommentI love this song. It has so much love in it - saying sorry to someone and showing how much they mean to you and how much you can't live without it. I love it - my fav song by far.

    General CommentWoah! This song just blew me away. I could feel all of the pain and longing. It reminded me of what my granddad felt all of those years between the death of my grandmother and his own.

    General CommentI think its about a long distance love. Im in one, its really hard to be soo far from the one you love, really dificult. You know your couple is there with you, but you cant feel nothing and sometimes you feel lonely. Im crying for god sake! The way she sings this song, makes it soo beautiful and paintfull at time...
    I whish he was here...

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song is about a long distance relationship and the struggles that come along with it, but neither of them will give up because of the extent they love each.

    General CommentThe "long distance relationship" is probably to her first boy friend, who died in a car accident in 1997 (?).
    In my opinion, she's just dealing with his dead in this song...

    General CommentThis song reminds me of how people can connect to others while they are dreaming. Like lucid dreaming. She is trying to connect to him while she sleeps.

    She's the only one I believe of all the people I've heard sing that line.
