Burning in a hopeless dream
Hold me when you go to sleep
Keep me in the warmth of your love
When you depart, keep me safe
Safe and sound


In the first verse of the song, the writer expresses about a dream which cannot come true and because of this hopelessness, her heart is painful and its burning like a fire. Its her dream to get the affection and love from her loved ones, the ones which are close to her heart, before its too late and they will leave the world. She says that she wants to get that pleasant feeling at least once before the departure.

Drowning in an endless sea
Take some time and stay with me
Keep me in the strength of your arms
Keep me safe
Safe and sound

(Lift me up) Lift me up in your arms
(Hold me down) I need love, I need love, I need love
(Keep me close) Hold me, hold me
(Safe and sound) Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
(Lift me up) Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
(Hold me down) Hold me, hold me
(Keep me safe) We need light, we need love


In the chorus, the singer repeats the lines by saying that she wants her loved one to keep her close as this keeps her healthful and hearty.
