You, you make me smile It’s been a while Since I felt this way for anyone You, you make me laugh I cannot grasp What makes you do this to me You tear out my heart Tear out my soul You can keep them as long as you will Tear out my heart Tear out my soul Take my breath away I, I’m spilling my My heart and I I can’t wait till you hear me I want you to know My blood, it flows Flows for you I can’t take it any more I need your hand in mine But you don’t want it like I need it; well I guess that’s fine But know that you amaze me, devastate me, completely Buy know you amaze me, devastate me, complete me
Well drink up baby, God knows you need it tonight ‘Cause I’m not your savior and you’re not doin’ alright But at least I’m here And that’s more than you can say for him So messed up baby, I don’t know where you’ve been You’ve got fire on your lips and a tongue full of poison But at least you’re safe From the perils of an empty bed And now you’re gone and I’m still stuck out here Wishing you would dry up all these tears Every letter of every word I sang for you, you haven’t heard All these notes Are about you So empty hearted, I’m calling out your name And you say I’m clingy, you say that I’m a shame But at least I’m tryin’ And that’s more than I can say for you Despondent and broken, who are you with tonight ‘Cause I’m left alone, and things haven’t been alright But at least it’s not over At least this isn’t the end

The rain is pouring heavily I can still breathe easily You are here right next to me And I’m in love Things we share that no one can Emulate or reprimand Yes I know I am your man And you’re my girl Aloof and reproached As our feelings went up in smoke And you called my name and you said “I do” Afraid unashamed As our feelings went up in flames And I screamed your name and I said “Me too” Keep my mind and leave me not Don’t pretend that you forgot I’ll give you all that I’ve got We must live Lovers and not enemies Friendship comes so easily No one means as much to me And I to you But I can’t explain The blood that is in my veins And I love you more than anyone I know Best friends and romance And reeling for the chance To shed our clothes and go so apropos The months go by fast The seconds they do last As I wait for you to return back home The days they drag on The minutes fly along As I’m longing for you and you feel me beside of you But soon enough one and one makes two And I am sitting next to you Your arms are wrapped around me too And we’re in love Young naïve but ready for The lover that I so adore We’ve been apart it makes me sore But we’re in love
You asked for a lullaby this time Something to help you fall asleep I make no promise nor nursery rhyme I just hope this helps you sleep I just hope this helps you sleep I love the way you look at me Dark green eyes and hair like trees And the nice things you say to me I just hope this helps you sleep I just hope this helps you sleep And I know you're falling in love with me I love you you too I hope to be what you dream of, I-- I dream of you I dream of you I just hope this helps you sleep I just hope this helps you sleep
