Here in this world I'm waked with mistakes,
But it's love that keeps fueling me, fueling me.

[Chorus:]
Pretty little lady with your swollen eyes,
Would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect,
But you stay a while, baby then you will see.

Miles away I could still feel you lay
Your head down on my embrace,
My embrace, far away.

[Chorus:]
Pretty little lady with your swollen eyes,
Would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect,
But you stay a while, baby then you will see.

Don't give up baby, I know that it's shaky.
Just let love consume us, consume us.
Here in this world I'm waked with mistakes,
But it's love that keeps fueling me, fueling me to love you.

Miles away I could still feel you lay
Your head down on my embrace,
Be not afraid to love me.


[Chorus:]
Pretty little lady with your swollen eyes,
Would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect,
But you stay a while, baby then you will see.

    My boyfriend recently left for college and this is our song and it explains us perfectly. Me crying as he leaves, him telling me everythings going to be okay and he misses me as well and he can still feel me lay my head on his embrace. Miss him so much and i listen to this song everyday. I love you. Always.

    I think it could be about confessing to a girl how he loves her and wants to feel her in his arms.

    To me, it's simply just a song about trying to reassure a distant lover that despite being miles away, everything will be okay in the end.

    A long distance boyfriend, and the girl cries because she has a lot of issues in her life, and he's still there for her. He still loves her. And he wants her to understand everything is going to fade eventually, all her pain, and he wants to be there for here through it all, and all the tears.
