Dear my love, haven't you wanted to be with me
And dear my love, haven't you longed to be free
I can't keep pretending that I don't even know you
And at sweet night, you are my own
Take my hand

We're leaving here tonight
There's no need to tell anyone
They'd only hold us down
So by the morning's light
We'll be halfway to anywhere
Where love is more than just your name

I have dreamt of a place for you and I
No one knows who we are there
All I want is to give my life only to you
I've dreamt so long I cannot dream anymore
Let's run away, I'll take you there

We're leaving here tonight
There's no need to tell anyone
They'd only hold us down
So by the morning's light
We'll be halfway to anywhere
Where no one needs a reason

Forget this life
Come with me
Don't look back you're safe now
Unlock your heart
Drop your guard
No one's left to stop you

Forget this life
Come with me
Don't look back you're safe now
Unlock your heart
Drop your guard
No one's left to stop you now

We're leaving here tonight
There's no need to tell anyone
They'd only hold us down
So by the morning's light
We'll be halfway to anywhere
Where love is more than just your name

    for me..just like the other commenter said that this song is about 2 lovers who can't be with each other,cause of other people say so much that would hurt their feelings..They're looking a way for them to be with each other again in a peaceful place that no one will know.

    I live this song every inescapable second of my life. To love with my very soul a woman whom I have a beautiful son and daughter with but failed as a husband due to selfishness immaturity and drugs. She was. Is. A wonderful friend Mother and Wife. However I came around the bend too late. Too much water under the bridge. I survived the he'll of losing her only to get back from my war to see she was gone forever. We get along nowadays but we are both in relationships. I guess long story short I am saying this song reflects the beautiful hope I hold safe in my heart that one day we will again be and when we reunite it shall be for eternity that she trusts my arms once more. This song means our life in Heaven together since our chance on earth was ruined by me. Beautiful song. Makes me smile in my heart.
