Possession - Sarah McLachlan

Listen as the wind blows

From across the great divide

Voices trapped in yearning

Memories trapped in time

 

The night is my companion

And solitude my guide

Would I spend forever here

And not be satisfied  

 

And I would be the one

To hold you down

Kiss you so hard

I’ll take your breath away

And after I’d wipe away the tears

Just close your eyes dear  

 

Through this world I’ve stumbled

So many times betrayed

Trying to find an honest word

To find the truth enslaved

 

Oh you speak to me in riddles and

You speak to me in rhymes

My body aches to breathe your breath

Your words keep me alive  

 

And I would be the one

To hold you down

Kiss you so hard

I’ll take your breath away

And after I’d wipe away the tears

Just close your eyes dear  

 

Into this night I wander

It’s morning that I dread

Another day of knowing of

The path I fear to tread

Oh into the sea of waking dreams

I follow without pride

Nothing stands between us here

And I won’t be denied  

 

And I would be the one

To hold you down

Kiss you so hard

I’ll take your breath away

And after I’d wipe away the tears

Just close your eyes dear

Love it... BECAUSE of where it came from..

This is one of my all time favorite songs. It just takes me away from reality, which is good at times. I need to get out my CD and listen again....been too long. I love Sarah!

I love this song. Amazing lyrics. I forgot how much I love Sarah McLachlan. Will go to youtube now....

There is a saying "If someone wants you they will never walk away from you." Maybe it is true Lol but Then again who knows Life is what you make it. But I Love the song.

Oh YESSSS!

i believe much of the words were taken from letters sent by the stalker to sarah. i think he even tried to sue her later. the lyrics remind me of the movie kiss the girls

Wow..that is one of my favorite songs...well, they both are actually! But I knew that about the Sarah song; very scary...I love the "Into the sea of waking dreams I follow without pride-nothing stands between us here, and I won't be denied"...<br />
<br />
That would be weird, to have a stalker.

I did not know that...does put a different twist on it all...

Did you know that this song was actually inspired by her own personal stalker experience? I don't mean to take the beauty out of it, but it is interesting...<br />
Just a different side of the song.

damn good song...

This song always moves me.

I have it on a compilation...great compilation, has Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, as performed by Jeff Buckley. Powerful stuff. How r u cindy...good hear from you.

I love the album this song comes from.
