Daniel, when I first saw you
I knew that you had a flame in your heart
And under under our blue skies
Marble movie skies
I found a home in your eyes
We'll never be apart

And when the fires came
The smell of cinders and rain
Perfumed almost everything
We laughed and laughed and laughed
And in the golden blue
Crying took me to the darkest place
And you have set fire to my heart

When I run in the dark
Daniel
To a place that's worst
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

But in a goodbye bed
With my arms around your neck
Into our love the tears crept
Just catch in the eye of the storm
And as my heart ran round
My dreams pulled me from the ground
Forever to search for the flame
For home again
For home again

When I run in the dark
Daniel
To a place that's worst
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

When I run in the dark
Daniel
To a place that's worst
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

    Daniel, when I first saw you
    I knew that you had, a flame in your heart
    And under wild blue sky
    Marble movie skies
    I found a home in your eyes
    We'll never be apart

    And when the fires came
    The smell of cinders and rain
    Perfumed almost everything
    We laughed and laughed and laughed
    And in a golden blue
    car you took me to, the darkest place you knew
    and set fire to my heart

    When I run in the dark (Daniel)
    To a place that's lost (Daniel)
    Under a sheet of rain in my heart (Daniel)
    I dream of home

    But in a goodbye bed
    With my arms around your neck
    Into our mouth the tears crept
    Just kids in the eye of the storm
    And as my house spun round
    My dreams pulled me from the ground
    Forever to search for the flame
    For home again
    (for) home again

    When I run in the dark (Daniel)
    (in)To a place that's lost (Daniel)
    Under a sheet of rain in my heart (Daniel)
    I dream of home

    When I run in the dark (Daniel)
    (in)To a place that's lost (Daniel)
    Under a sheet of rain in my heart (Daniel)
    I dream of home

    @ randomorangeblob, those are the correct lyrics. The ones posted on the page have a lot of mistakes in them - tbryan has posted the right words.

    Beautifully written lyrics. I love her original sound, too. But, tbryan, what's the point of copying out the entire lyrics of a song and then pasting it as a meaning? No offence intended, but...?
