When the breeze between us calls,
Love comes and lingers into our lives.
And the leaves begin to fall,
You point your finger at me.
I love you, yeah.
I love you.
In the sadness of your smile,
Love is an island way out to sea.
But it seems so long ago,
We have been ready trying to be free.
And it's up to you,
Why won't you say?
Make our lives turn out this way,
If they knew,
That we have got nothing to lose.
No reason to hide from what's true.
In the world of me and you,
All is forgotten when we're inside.
And the words that pass us by,
I am not listening to all of its lies.
And it's up to you,
Why won't you say?
Make our lives turn out this way.
If they knew, that we have got nothing to lose,
No reason to hide from what's true.
Then we have got nothing to lose.

    General CommentI think this song is about new love and some of the uncertainty that comes with it. The feeling that you've given your heart and the other person is in control of it.

    Psst, Karen,,, I love you. g

    General CommentAmazing song with tons of quality, specially in Justin's own guitars and voice. The song has an unusual fresh and country feel, which suits perfectly the deepness and drama of other songs in the album. It's really a perfect combination of simpleness, quality and accuracy that makes the song stand out.

    And the middle section, sincere and honest as always in Justin's songs: "If they knew that we ha got nothing to lose / No reason to hide from what's true". It combinates with 'Dawning is the Day' when he sings "Baby there's no price upon your head / Sing it, shout it".

    Jesus is the only truth and that makes us able to stand and witness it; whoever disagrees is fair enough, but we don't have to have fear because the only truth pushes away the rest of them "And the words that pass us by, I am not listening / To all of its lies".
