Close, I hold you
You may as well be a part of me
Here, I’ll love you
’Til my heart jumps from my body

And leaves a hole in my chest
Oh, will your love fill it for me?
Or leave it wasted
So a bitter girl is all I can be

Will you love me, like I love you, in time?
I’ll take your dreams
And they’ll be mine too, ’til they come true! And I’ll wipe your tears
Until loving me, is all you can do

If you ask me to live
My every hour for you
Then I’ll never spend my days
Hidden away, like I used to

When you love me, like I love you, in time
Even at your worst
I won’t tire of you, upon me you’ll never weigh! Even when I sleep
You’ll fill every thought, and darling that’s okay
Anywhere we go
Is my home for the day
‘Cause there’s no place else
Than with you, I’d rather stay

I hope you’ll love me, like I love you, in time
