With a song title of “I Love You” (this one by Sarah McLachlan), you can almost guarantee there’ll be something about loss in there. I’ve been a bit of a fan of McLachlan since seeing her perform live on the Jools Holland TV programme around 12 or 13 years ago. Her performance was amazing, and I’ve still got an audio copy I took from the VHS tape.
In this song, I do like the line: “Let me be the calm you seek”. I can identify with that.

“I have a smile
Stretched from ear to ear
To see you walking down the road

We meet at the lights
I stare for a while
The world around disappears

Just you and me
On this island of hope
A breath between us could be miles

Let me surround you
My sea to your shore
Let me be the calm you seek

Oh and every time I’m close to you
There’s too much I can’t say
And you just walk away

And I forgot
To tell you
I love you
And the night’s
Too long
And cold here
Without you
I grieve in my condition
For I cannot find the strength to say I need you so

Oh and every time I’m close to you
There’s too much I can’t say
And you just walk away

And I forgot
To tell you
I love you
And the night’s
Too long
And cold here
Without you”
