Song Description

A simple balladic love song, arranged here with beautiful strings, about long distance and unrequited love.


So take these nights of frozen cold
and take these ghosts that you can't hold
these ritualistic acts of love you make in secret will soon unfold
instead of waking up alone you'll know the roving desires of a home
instead of searching in the dark for so much
you're gonna find a world of skin to touch
So come lie beside me cos I'm wanting to touch

And if I tremble like a child it's when I'm with you that I get so young
I whisper all your secret names that wait forever beneath my tongue
And If i tell you how this feels will you say that I'm dreaming go back off to sleep
Well I've a thousand other lives to repeal and this is one love that I'd like to keep
So come lie behind me cos I'm wanting to sleep

Somewhere west of where we are I left that party and I went outside
and I'm still standing on that shore confessing your name to the moon in the sky
and where these distances confound and leave only dreams on the face of the cold
Would I ever pass through your mind? Was I ever a ghost that you wanted to hold?
So come lie beside me cos I'm wanting to hold
