  • The message is perfectly simple
    The meaning is clear
    Don't ever stray too far
    And don't disappear
    No don't disappear

    Ever had the feeling almost broke in two?
    Said that you were leaving like you do you do?
    All my dreams came true last night
    All my hopes and fears
    All my dreams came true once more
    In tears in tears

    Be near me Be near Be near

    Never had that feeling until I first me you
    Never felt I like kneeling now I do, yes I do
    All my dreams came true last night
    All my hopes and fears
    All my dreams came true once more
    In tears in tears

    Be near me Be near Be near

    What's your reputation?
    What's you destination?
    Next to me
