Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You've left me with such a silent world
Where evenings are calm, but I'm restless
And my breath has become as thin as the wind

[Pre-Chorus]
Not even the mighty sky could fill the space you left behind
Not even when it rains
No, nothing takes your place
Your emptiness too great to fill

[Chorus]
I have been holding my breath
For too many nights in a row
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams
With reds and blues and greens
Yeah you're painting daffodils by the sea
Without me

[Verse 2]
Today in a breeze I sensed your perfume
But you were nowhere near
And in reverie
I felt you holding me
And even in my dreams I shake from the fear
Of truth being swept away
By the rhythm of the waves I whisper in your ears

[Chorus]
I have been holding my breath
For too many nights in a row
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams
With reds and blues and greens
Yeah you're painting daffodils by the sea
Without me

[Bridge]
I would give away
The sweetest memories
If I could just be with you again
Be with you again

[Chorus]
I have been holding my breath
For too many nights in a row
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams
With reds and blues and greens
Yeah you're painting daffodils growing by the sea
Without me

[Outro]
Last night I dreamt you were with me
Finally I could breathe
