Sleeping At Last – Turning Page lyrics

I've waited a hundred years,
But I'd wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for,
What the privilege of being yours would do.

If I had only felt the warmth within your touch.
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush.
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough
Oh I would've known what I was living for all along.
What I've been living for.

Your love is my turning page,
Where only the sweetest words remain.
Every kiss is a cursive line.
Every touch is a redefining phrase.
I surrender who I've been for who you are,
Nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart.
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Oh I would've known what I've been living for, all along
What I've been living for.

Though we're tethered to the story we must tell,
When I saw you, well I knew we'd tell it well.
With a whisper, we will tame the vicious seas,
Like a feather, bringing kingdoms to their knees.

    This song means a whole lot and it is a remarkable song of course because it's by sleeping at last and I expect nothing less! Every single song by sal is pure genius beautiful lyrics and amazing song writer. The turning point of the song "I surrender who I've been for who you are nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart" did it for me! Those two lines just captured the whole feeling of the song and turned the true beauty into perfection I loved it! It really tells how much love the guy has for the girl and its outstanding! As much as I love twilight I have to leave it out because this song is to good for twilight and has way more potential but it did capture Bella and Edward's love for each other! If you think this is amazing check out more sleeping at last like "goes on and on" which is an amazing beautiful song by them also featured on sytycd and "A thousand miles (I'm gonna be)" that's beauty just check out more sleeping at last because it will really when over your heart! Beautiful song and lovely lyrics and I could go on and on but I probably should stop.

    When I heard this song it made me think how much it said for the words "true love". I met mine through an online dating site and we have not been apart for 6 years. We married after almost 3 years. I sent this to him while he was working away from home and told him that it really was how I felt about him and knew that this would express how I truly felt about our love and marriage.

    Its about not knowing why youre alive until you meet that person. They help develop yourself, in other words finally turng into th nxt chapter in your life, extends your book. Even the little things about them encourages you to live. I want something like that I bet all of you wanst that. I don't like the world were living I but I'm not to wit for te guy. I'm going to keep trying.
