Life was like a moonless night,
Shrouded in the stars,
Beauty can be such a fright,
But now you're in my arms.

You are my life now
Can't you see
I'd cross oceans
I'd swim seas
To be with you
That's enough for me.

Your face is like a poison,
Intoxicating me,
How can we live forever,
When our love can never be.

You are my life now
Can't you see
I'd cross oceans
I'd swim seas
To be with you
That's enough for me.

    I LOVE this song sooo much and if you really think about it it is just what the movie Twilight is about. What Edward is trying to say is that he loves Bella but he does know that they can't be because he's a vampire and she's not and because of that he craves her blood too much and most of the time it is very hard to resist her but he does anyways because he love's her with all his heart. When I read the first of the Twilight series, I started to cry when Bella told Edward that she first loved him because I knew what he was going to say to that. It really made me stop and think about it. I mean seriously, when I read the books it felt to me like I was actually Bella and that the book was just too real to be true because I am tottaly and completely in love with Robert Pattinson. Unlike most of the girls in the world, I don't just like him because of his looks, but because of the way he is in the movie. I'm really not in love with Robert Pattinson, but I am in love with mostly Edward Cullen. These lyrics made me cry when I first listened to the soundtrack. I Love You Edward Cullen! :) Peace

    This song expresses edwards feeling... His life was a dark night before he met bella he loves her alot and can do any thing 4 her. He wants to live wid her 4 ever but it is not possible whih makes him very sad but the thng dat mattrs d most is he loves her alot n will love her for rest of his eternity...

    I think the meaning of bella's lullaby is that love is never broken not by even the most powerfullest thing alive and that that is why its lived so long from the day the earth had lifeforms on it. I also think that he would die for her even if it meant never seeing her again that he would protect her with his life. I never been in love so i wouldn't know how it feels but if i was in love i bet i would do the same thing for my true love!
