Send Ringtones to Cell

You say your time has come, you're tired of waking up
Don't be obscene, I can't conceive of living without you
You say you drag me down, no one should want you now
I start to cry, you kiss my eyes and say I'm not allowed to

    the most similar song on this album to 'one cell in the sea'. a very good one, too, yes.

    I've known this album since, like, when it came out. And it took me this long to realize how amazing this song is. :)

    You said it; "peaceful" is definately the word for this song! And soothing too!

    Heh. I misread the title and saw "The Bacon." Good song though.
