I'll grow when you grow
Let me loosen up the blindfold
I'll fly when you cry
Lift us out of this landslide

Wherever you go
Whenever we part

I'll keep on healing all the scars
That we've collected from the start
I'd rather this than live without you
For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I've dreamt about you

And from afar I lie awake
Close my eyes to find
I wouldn't be the same

I'll shine when you shine
Faded pictures on my mind
Sun sets on this ocean
Never once on my devotion

However you are
Or far that you fall

I'll keep on healing all the scars
That we've collected from the start
I'd rather this than live without you
For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I've dreamt about you

And from afar I lie awake
Close my eyes to find
I'd never be the same

Without you

Without you

    Love, pure and simple. Unconditional love. From parent to child. From friend to friend. From partner to parner. That's what this song means to me.

    The person who is my love and my future gave me this song to listen to when my life was in shambles, telling me it described perfectly how they felt about me, about our relationship. That was the greatest gift i ever received.

    Without you...

    (i still love you freedom)
