Look at me, I'm so far away
Out of the way of rain
Far from the pain,
And if you see me in your dreams
Would you still believe
All that you see, yeah

And only you and me, and only you and me
Well even though I'm not there with you
It's good to keep me close

I never thought that it would come down to this
That I would be so missed
So quickly dismissed, yeah
I want nothin more than to be with you here at home
Yeah, I know it's been so long
What I did was wrong, yeah

And only you and me, and only you and me
Well even though I'm not there with you
It's good to keep me close

Closer to your skin, you gotta keep me deep within
Cuz where I am right now I couldnt be tomorrow
Close enough to see, Close enough to hear you breathe
Close enough to feel the warmth of you, cuz I am so cold, yeah

And only in me, and only in me, oh it's only in me, yeah
And even though I'm not there with you
It's good to keep me close
And even though I'm not there with you
It's good to keep me close
And even though I'm not there with you
It's good to keep me close

    This song basically means that he left someone he loved very much, and he's starting to regret it.

    "I never thought that it would come down to this
    That I would be so missed
    So quickly dismissed, yeah
    I want nothin more than to be with you here at home
    Yeah, I know it's been so long
    What I did was wrong, yeah"

    He thought that he was going to be remembered always, rather than missed then dismissed. He wants to go back to her, but it's been too long since he left, and there's no going back to the good ol' days.
