The skies are not as blue, when you're not with me
The stars, they never seem to shine as bright
And the hours crack like days across the ages
And a year or two pass by with every night.
It makes me know if i should ever leave this world before you do
When you follow you must promise, cross your heart and promise to

Find me...look hard, and don't stop, I'll be waiting 'till then
Don't sleep, and don't eat 'till I'm back, back in your arms again
I don't wanna have to spend all my forever without you.
Just knowing that your out there somewhere too.
So darlin...please I'm begging you on bended knee...
Find me...

I've tried to tell this world how much i love you.
But they don't understand how deep it goes.
And i can't even find the words to tell you
So I'm the only one who really knows.
And though we have our times together, I am always wanting more
So if we get separated wont you do just like before and

(Chorus 2)
Find me...look hard and don't stop, I'll be waiting 'till then
Don't sleep, and don't eat 'till I'm back, back in your arms again
Through a hundred million faces you will see me shinning through.
'Cause I'll glow when you come close , I always do.
So darlin' please im begging you on bended knee..
We can share our love through all eternity
'Cause with you is all i ever wanna be......
Find me

    Ive found you at last.. But too late, youve left this world for good... Thanks for time youve laid your eyes on me.. During my younger years, youll always have a special place in my heart my ist love... Bread songs always reminds me of you... Thanks for visiting me in my dreams... Kind a sad and happy... To know.. Nothing has changed since the day you met me... As you have said to me in my dreams... Thank you!!!

    I picture this song in my head as an old man dying... Telling these words (the lyrics) to his beloved...
    And i believe that this is what this song really meant...
    This song has an obvious and striking lines...
    - "if i should ever leave this world before you do"
    - "so if we get separated"
    David gates used simple words in writting this song, yet the composition and construction is undeniably creatively unforgettable...
    Try to play song and read the lyrics all over again then try to picture out a scenario of a dying man telling his last sweet words to his wife... Make sense to me...

    This song is new to me. First heard it 30 minutes ago, and i have it looping continuously in a effort to stop choking up (i'm trying to play it on a rhodes). Great songs have many meanings; to different people, and at different ages. Essentially it's about being rescued from loneliness. My mother, who lost her husband of 50 years a few years back, would probably cry for a week if she heard the lyrics. For myself, having been married for 33 years, the after death stuff is also very powerful, and it's us guys that usually leave someone behind when we go... This just plucks a nerve like a guitar string. Another point i would like to bring up: in many long term relationships, it's common to lose that connection, sometimes for years. Find me, could be interpreted as re-finding the magic that all loving relationships with. This song works on so many levels.
