Come into these arms again And lay your body down The rhythm of this trembling heart Is beating like a drum
It beats for you, it bleeds for you It know not how it sound For it is the drum of drums It is the song of songs
Once I had rarest rose That ever deigned to bloom Cruel winter chilled the bud And stole my flower too soon
Oh loneliness, oh hopelessness To search the ends of time For there is in all the world No greater love than mine
Love, oh love, oh love Still falls the rain (still falls the rain) Love, oh love, oh, love Still falls the night Love, oh love, oh love Be mine forever (be mine forever) Love, oh love, oh love
Let me be the only one To keep you from the cold Now the floor of heaven's lain With stars of brightest gold
They shine for you, they shine for you They burn for all to see Come into these arms again And set this spirit free

AnonymousI have a similar story to PJ from Dublin - the film and this lovely song came out when I was first away from home at university and fell head over heels in love for the first time. Bittersweet memories!
Pj from Dublin, IrelandI remember reading the book Interview with the vampire and along with the song it takes me back to 1992,I was in love with someone who never knew it, being young and inexperienced as i was then the feelings i had inside scared me and i couldnt express them..and "d " slipped through my hands ..it was natural learning curve..at times when i hear this song i do think of her..."Man she was so beautiful though!!"...for me this song is a soundtrack of a romance that never could be. ......I wish i knew then what i know now...."jesus dont we all"!......i have nothing but love for this song...it sets my spirit free...
