I know what it means to me. What does it mean to you?

Turn the lights down, keep the fire burning strong,
I can feel you here with me now, now the night has come
And I know you’ll keep me standing, I know you’ll keep me breathing until the stars have gone.
But the sounds around me are so cruel ,they remind me I’m alone, and now the night is almost done I can’t see you anymore.
But the fire still burns strong.
 
 
My eyes can only sleep for so long and when I wake
they tell me I don’t have you.
and I can’t breath, I can’t stand, because I’m stuck in a dream that will never be real.
I’m letting go, I know you know it’s true,
this fire’s fading and there’s nothing we can do.
So hold me close for old times sake,
You know I’ll always love you.
 
 
 
 
 
Turn the lights down, keep the fire burning strong,
I’ll always think of you,
but this dream isn’t enough,
I need something real,
and I will breath, I will stand
because now I can look into someone else’s eyes,
and know,
the fire will burn strong.
