how can I fall asleep at night

today was such a grey overcast day and for some reason I just
thought of this song ...

I remember the first time I heard it ... and it still astounds me
every time I listen to it

definitely in the same league as SILENT ALL THESE YEARS
- and there's not many songs that I would say that about.

I need to see him live - and I will - the next time he comes to
the UK. I won't do my usual trick of planning to go see someone

and then just never going ...

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

There's a ghost on the horizon
When I go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I'm scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don't want to be the one
Left in there, left in there

There's a man on the horizon
When I go to bed
If I fall to his feet tonight
Will allow rest my head

So here's hoping I will not drown
Or paralyze in light
And godsend I don't want to go
To the seal's watershed

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, Will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

remember hearing this for the first time, it stopped me in my tracks
and brought me to tears, not many songs do that for me. pretty unique

I have never listened to this and not cried.

I don't have an opinion. All I know is that it's raining outside and this
is one hell of a beautiful song.

dissolving here,melting,disappearing... touching my past and future
wounds,and becoming a scar again...

Beautiful ! It simply rips my heart everytime I hear it. Pure genius.

It's one of those rare songs that simply prove music can be art

I can only feel love for this man... There is not many songs who can
speak right to my heart, like this one do....

1:07 is one of the most awkwardly beautiful moments I've ever seen.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful songs ever, I'm bawling
like a baby every time I hear it..Pure genius

This song brings tears to my eyes

Ridiculously underrated, hauntingly beautiful.

is beauty skindeep - what is beauty - define it for me - the voice -
the words - the soul - how can we talk with our heads instead of
understanding with our hearts.

He speaks to our hearts-Close your eyes and listen

Just discovered this. Teacher let us hear it in class. Everyone was
like 'pfff' and I loved it. I'm glad he named the band, I don't think
I'd dare to ask after it since I was the only one who liked it. Liked
it very very very much. :)
