lyrics

Every time I wake up lonely
I remember what you told me
"I won’t let you fall to pieces
Never mind your second guesses."
Feeling as the snow is, falling
Drive away your life is calling
Or follow me I’m going nowhere
But I promise I’ll be there for
You mean more than the world to me
I’ll be sure it’ll always be
Never fear, I am always here
There’s nowhere else I want to be

Than here with you beneath the stars
With my forehead pressed to yours
Laughing in your loving arms
Making dreams we can’t afford
We’ve all the riches of the poor
And I don’t want for nothing more

I can feel our time is coming
Better days have just begun and
Maybe one day we’ll be famous
All the world will want to claim us
Look at how the earth is turning
Over and inside it’s burning
Everyone knows what is missing
Everyone just wants a kiss
So come to bed and turn out the light
Rest your head on my chest tonight
Close your eyes, as the fire dies
There’s nowhere else I’d want to be

Than lying here beside you warm
With my skin pressed up to yours
Laughing in your loving arms
Kicking clothes off to the floor
We’ve all the riches of the poor
And I don’t want for nothing more
