Gerard Butler – For The Dancing And The Dreaming lyrics

I'll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne'er fear of drowning

And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me

No scorching sun
Nor freezing cold
Will stop me on my journey
If you will promise me your heart

And love...

And love me for eternity
My dearest one
My darling dear
Your mighty words astound me
But I've no need for mighty deeds
When I feel your arms around me

But I would bring you rings of gold
I'd even sing you poetry
And I would keep you from all harm
If you would stay beside me

I have no use for rings of gold
I care not for your poetry
I only want your hand to hold
I only want you near me

To love, to kiss, to sweetly hold
For the dancing and the dreaming
Through all my sorrows and delights
I'll keep your love beside me

I'll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne'er fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me

    This song is about love, kindness, and happiness. The first person says nothing can stop my journey for your love hot or cold. Then they go on and then asks the other to marry them. The second person says "my dearest I can't believe you are saying this!" basically. Then they say that they have no need for such deeds all I need is your love. The first person says that they would bring them rings of gold or they could sing poetry. The second person says that they don't need those things. And they go on and on. The first person asks again to marry the other again. The song is about them only needing each other, not gifts or trinkets their love is enough.
