Time used to run so slow
I remember counting down the seconds, minutes, hours until I could escape away
Sleep was the only time I felt free
But now, I have something different to say

I wish time would slow down
Instead of wanting to escape, it's you I want to be around
I count down the time where I can be
In your arms
Yours to keep

It's all just so easy
You and me
I don't have to pretend to be
Anything but what I am naturally

Knowing you want me just for that
Means more than any gesture one could make
No words even have to be said
My time is for you to take
I wouldn't mind

I wouldn't mind waking up every morning consumed by thoughts of you
Instead of the countless nights that turn into mornings constantly putting myself down

I wouldn't mind keeping you around.
If only you'll stick around.
Please stick around.
