Song Lyrics

Iris…

Hold me close
Hold me close and don’t let me go
Hold me close

The star
That gives us light
Has been gone a while
But it’s not an illusion
The ache
In my heart
Is so much a part of who I am

Hold me close
Hold me close and don’t let me go
Hold me close
Like I’m someone that you might know

Once we are born
We begin to forget
The very reason we came

But you I’m sure I’ve met
Long before the night the stars went out
We’re meeting up again

Hold me close
Hold me close and don’t let me go
Hold me close
Like I’m someone that you might know

Hold me close
The darkness just lets us see
Who we are
I’ve got your life inside of me

Iris…
Iris…
Iris…

The stars are bright but do they know
The universe is beautiful but so cold

You took me by the hand
I thought that I was leading you
But it was you made me your man
Machine
I dream and you are

Iris standing in the hall
She tells me I can do it all
Iris wakes to my nightmares
Don’t fear the world, it isn’t there

Iris playing on the strand
She buries the boy beneath the sand
Iris says that I will be the death of her
But it was not me

Iris…
Iris…

She said free yourself to be yourself
If only you could see yourself
Free yourself to be yourself
If only you could see

Something in your eyes
Took a thousand years to get here
Something in your eyes
Took a thousand years, a thousand years
