Eternal Flame
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Close your eyes
And give me your hand, darling
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand?
Do you feel the same?
Or am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?
I believe
It's meant to be, darling
I watch you when you are sleeping
You belong with me
Do you feel the same?
Or am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?

Say my name, yeah
Sun shines through the rain
My whole life so lonely
But then come and ease the pain, yeah
I don't want to lose this feeling, oh, oh yeah

Just close your eyes
And give me your hand my darling
Do you feel my heart beating?
Do you understand?
Do you feel the same?
Or am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?

Close your eyes
Give me your hand my darling
Do you feel my heart beating?
Do you understand?
Do you feel the same?




Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?
