Dear True Love ~ Sleeping At Last


I heard this for the first time a few days ago sung by friends of a friend on FB.  The words are incredible.  When I "youtubed" the song by Sleeping At Last, I thought the kids who song it on a homemade video I had watched on FB did a FAR better job - their harmony was electric.  So, I put this on here... to remember the words, & stash it away for another day... :-)

Dear true love,
I'm a writer without any words,
I'm a story that nobody heard 
When i'm without you.

I am a voice,
I am a voice without any sound.
I'm a treasure map that nobody found
When i'm without you.

Dear true love,
I'm a lantern without any light,
I'm a boxer much too afraid to fight
When i'm without you.

So with this ring
May you always know one thing:
What little that i have to give,
I will give it all to you.
You're my one true love.

I am a memory,
I'm a memory bent out of shape,
A childhood already bruised with age 
When i'm without you.

Dear true love,
I'm an artist without any paint,
I'm the deal that everyone breaks
When i'm without you.

So with this ring,
May you always know one thing:
What little that i have to give,
I will give it all to you.

You're my one true love.

I am a whisper,
I'm a secret that nobody keeps.
I'm a dreamer of someone else's dreams
When i'm without you.

Dear true love,
I'm a farewell that came all too soon.
I'm a hand-me-down that dreams of being new
When i'm without you.
