When we come alive, we'll run to other side
To see what we see, And lose all our memories
Start it again, stop playing pretend
With ourselves and our dreams, when everything's clean

See the day they brought you home, crying, scared but not alone
Everything you saw was so beautifully alive
Your mother takes you in her arms and swears to keep you safe from harm
And cradles you so lovingly long into the night

She kisses your head, tucks you into bed
And sings you a lullaby to keep you from crying
Away with your tears, away with your fears
And you fall asleep away with your dreams

The days were like the falling leaves unraveling, unraveling
And soon enough the days were unraveling with me
You take my hand into your own and promise I am not alone
And pause before speaking the truest of words

Then you smile so bright with tears in your eyes
And you say I love you more than this world
I believed you then, I believe you now
And we'll be together forever somehow

The days are like the falling leaves unraveling, unraveling
And everything we'll see is so beautifully alive
I take your hand into my own and promise you are not alone
And pause before speaking the truest of words

And now we're alive, running to the other side
And within our dreams, we found all our memories
Away with with our tears, away with our fears
And we'll never part, I'll always be here for you

I can hear you breathing in the mic alot and loud. Piano is nice but your voice is weak and is not always on key. I also don't like the vocal melody. Io don't think it fits just intrudes

Touching; not what I expected to find here

Hi Matt,

I really enjoy this song you've come up with. So not what I ever expected to find on here. I hope you don't mind, but I used in on a ziplining video I made of me and my daughter. It just seemed oddly appropriate and fit. To me, at least. It's here if you want to take a look: http://youtu.be/5lIEfb4fdEg. Not a monetized video, but I'll put a pop up with a link here just to be fair.

Thank you for such a great song.


very rarely, no....I am never interested in songs with lyrics on NG...but this...this is WONDERFUL!!! you had me at the intro, and the piano is amazing, and that voice.... I am going to favorite you...
