it's paradise, every time i'm with you
you make me smile when i feel like crying too
i run around making everybody happy
but you're the one who ever truly really know me  

so you sing me a song til your throat has dried out
and you bring me to town so we can walk around
and i know i'll survive
*** you're by my side

you are the one for me to love
more than the nameless god above
i could go to hell by just saying that
but i don't care at a lot
just let me love you, love

every single time they lie, there's always a hidden clue
so tell me one or many, i'll help you figure out the truth
through the years, we're trying prevent our fall
well, let's fall down now
don't be scared
i'll be with you through it all

i'll sing you a song til my throat has dried out i'll bring you to town so we can scream aloud
yes, we'll be alright
we'll frighten those ghosts every night

you are the one for me to love
more than the nameless god above
i could go to hell by just saying that
but i don't care at a lot
just let me love you, love

verse:
let me have my coffee first before you say good bye
let me look up at the sky before you say it twice
let me fix my bed first before i fix my life
before i fix somebody else's

chorus:
maybe we should be
bigger than this
bigger than who we wanna be
better than who we could be

maybe we should be
just shadows in the night
some souls who lost their bright
when they wished upon those starry eyes

verse:
let me have my coffee first before i say good bye
let me look up at the sky so i can ask him why
let me fix my bed first, i don't have to save your life
'*** you're not saving mine
we're just shadows in the night

verse:
look at them, they're looking at us
they must be thinking that we are in love
the way we sway, the way we touch
it's not a mistake, but you said, "enough."

so, i'm on my own beat, and you are on yours
figuring things, happy but forced
you phoned a ring, i answered, of course
you tell me one thing, i followed your voice

chorus:
you said "it's time for us to dance again tonight, do you mind?
don't want no other waist between my hands to hold tight.
lock your hips, turn around,
click your feet, back to my sound,
it's time for us to dance again tonight, is that alright?"

verse:
i'm trembling, as you took my hand
i looked at him, should give him a chance
but here i am standing with a pain in my feet,
and a beautiful devil in front of me.

i'm thinking about hitting and running
but looking at you, just changes my plans, so i took a breath,
i said "leave me alone"
the clock struck twelve, you said, "please don't go"

bridge:
the music doesn't fit us anymore
maybe it's time we take a bow right now on the dancefloor
you'll be dancing again, with a different friend and you wouldn't be alone
don't be afraid about learning new steps '*** that is the way love goes.

verse:
we've been friends for over a year.
i've fallen in love with you.
where do we go from here?

you're the dream i'm after,
but you dream about her
and of another.
the list is never over.

pre:
for a lover, you walk a mile
but for a friend, you barely try
but when it comes to me,
you cross a sea.

though your feet are bare
and the waves are tall,
though it's the peak of heat,
and there are ships at war
you do everything.
i'm left assuming

chorus:
when i look into your eyes,
they speak and tell me i'm so fine,
but your mouth tells me otherwise
where do we go from here?

and when we walk by together
you think of living forever
with her, not me,
where do we go from here?

verse:
i've gone out, broke many hearts
of some people i don't know
just so that they let me go.

and you act so innocent
as if you're not reading this.
i'm not that good of a liar
left them, *** it's you i desire.

chorus:
when i look into your eyes,
they speak and tell me i'm so fine,
but your mouth tells me otherwise
where do we go from here?

and when we walk by together
you think of living forever
with her, not me,
where do we go from here?

bridge:
for a lover, i walk a mile
but for a friend, i barely try
but when it comes to you,
i make red hearts blue.

for a daydream, you're dark as night.
for a holy, i'm crucified.
there are street signs there,
but we're not getting somewhere.

tell me honestly, what else she can offer aside from her pretty features...when things get ugly, at least she'll look good in pictures.

and then maybe one day, you'll confess
that you did like me back
but by then, you'll be with her—happy.
and i'll be with him—trying to be.

maybe one day you'll confess,
or maybe you won't.

so if you only have one lie left to tell,
please tell me you love me
even if you don't.
because even if it isn't true,
i'll never know.

my mama told me:
"find a love that stays,"
i thought it's going to be difficult
but then, i met you.

it wasn't that difficult
to find a love that stays
i mean, my love for you did stay
—you just didn't.
