lyrics

Come and rest a little by my side,
I’ll tell the story of your life, the story of your life.
All these things, those little dreams you have
They are bursting into life, watch them bursting into life.

You know I remember well when we were young
We tied our hands together so they couldn’t be undone
Spending our time in each other’s company
Everything was easy, everything so free

Come and rest a little by my side,
I’ll tell the story of your life, the story of your life.
All these things, those little dreams you have
They are bursting into life, watch them bursting into life.

Living life without you never made to me much sense
I never felt like anything, although I could pretend
On my own I’d be afloat with all my hopes and plans
But you built them with me piece by piece, I knew you’d understand

Come and rest a little by my side,
I’ll tell the story of your life, the story of your life.
All these things, those little dreams you have
They are bursting into life, watch them bursting into life.

Knowing you better, holding you closer
Breathing in deeper, feeling much stronger

Laughter is harder, tears flow much deeper
My smile is much wider, I’m seeing things clearer

The trees grow much higher, the sun shines much brighter
The birds sing more sweetly, the waters run deeply.

Summer is warmer, seasons are fuller
Friendships are stronger, the days getting longer

The winter’s much colder, I’m feeling much older
The frosts are much sharper, the night’s getting darker.

The weeks last much longer, the years go much faster
My dreams are much better, colours much brighter

The rain falls much harder, the wind blows much stronger
The seas rage much wilder, the waves crash much harder

With you here, with you here
With you here, with you here.

Come and rest a little by my side,
I’ll tell the story of your life, the story of your life.
All these things, those little dreams you have
They are bursting into life, watch them bursting into life.
