  • I didn't hear you leave
    I wonder how am I still here
    And I don't want to move a thing
    It might change my memory

    Oh I am what I am
    I'll do what I want
    But I can't hide
    And I won't go, I won't sleep
    I can't breathe
    Until you're resting here with me
    And I won't leave, and I can't hide
    I cannot be until you're resting here with me

    I don't want to call my friends
    They might wake me from this dream
    And I can't leave this bed,
    Risk forgetting all that's been

    Oh I am what I am
    I'll do what I want
    But I can't hide
    And I won't go
    I won't sleep
    And I can't breathe
    Until you're resting here with me
    And I won't leave
    And I can't hide
    I cannot be until you're resting here

    And I won't go
    And I won't sleep
    And I can't breathe
    Until you're resting here with me
    And I won't leave
    And I can't hide
    I cannot be until you're resting here with me

    Oh I am what I am
    I'll do what I want
    But I can't hide
    And I won't go
    I won't sleep
    And I can't breathe
    Until you're resting here with me
    And I won't leave
    And I can't hide
    I cannot be until you're resting here

    And I won't go
    And I won't sleep
    And I can't breathe
    Until you're resting here with me
    And I won't leave
    And I can't hide
    I cannot be until you're resting here with me Writer/s: Dido Armstrong, Pascal Gabriel, Paul Statham

  • Chizzijay from Enugu State Nigeria I love the song and I have been listening to many of dido songs I love them and I wish to meet her one day
  • David from Atlanta, GaWasn't this also in a movie with Gwynneth Paltrow and Nick Cage?
  • Tara from Nashville, TnThis song is also featured in the movie "Love Actually"
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesThis song, the theme to Roswell, finally became a hit in 2001, but had originally been released as long ago as 1998. For me this song shatters the myth that Dido could never had made it big without Eminem's help, as there were alreay calls to release this as a single by popular demand.
  • Tara from Bayonne, NjTo me this song is about how you feel when you finally meet the person you can't live without. At first it feels like a dream, but know matter how hard you try you can't hide the fact that you want them there every moment possible. When they are there its a feeling of rest. You feel like you can't do simple things like sleep or breathe until that person is here to rest with you. I met my boyfriend around the time I first heard this song and I fell in love with both him and the song because it described every emotion that I felt for him. If you can relate to someone in your life through this song I would hold on to that person... I have.....*Tara loves Ed * *Always and Forever*
