I love you.
I love you so much it hurts.
I find so much joy with you by my side.
I’m willing to go any length just because of you.
I feel so much pride knowing you’re mine…telling all who care to know how much I gave up just to have you with me…
Call me a jealous lover…cause I know I am.
I watch you sleep every night
Looking at you with longing eyes
Hoping you’d turn and see the love in my eyes
Hoping you’d tell me about your day
What you did…didn’t do…shulda done
Who said what…where you went…what you saw
What you ate…who your friends are…what you plan to do
What made you smile…what made you laugh
What made you sad…what made you cry.
But all I get, like other nights gone by
Is another cold, heart-wrenching hush as I talk to you
And this, like other nights, is what I go through.
I watch you wake up
Hoping you’d tell me about your night
Hoping you’d thank me for staying up all night
Hoping you’d tell me how you love the morning sun
But you hurriedly take glances at the clock
And once again, as you run out, I feel the shock
Everything you have is mine
Everything you seek, I can give
Everything you say, I hear
Everything you don’t say, I know
Everything that happens to and around you, I know
Why do you keep on running away from me?
Why don’t you talk to me?
You don’t even want to hear my name!
Why are you so ashamed to call me your love in return?
What have I not done to make you comfortable and happy?
I went much farther than the ones that claim to give you what I have given you already…
Through the hurt, through the shame…
I had you in mind as my bride…the real reason why I came
Every single time you get hurt and come running back, have I for once pushed you away?
And yet, as soon as you get a little more strength, you go right to the same one that caused you so much pain…
Only to repeat the cycle again.
I look on helplessly with love and jealousy in my heart
As you seem so happy in your walk through the minefield
My heart torn apart in bits as it beats faster with every step you take
Hoping you’d hear my voice and come back to me
I paid so much to have you
So much…so much you can’t imagine
I do so much to keep you from harm
I put all things that please you in place
Just to see that smile light up your face
I keep all things dear to your heart close to mine
Al because I want to see that glow on your face every day…just like the sunshine
I could have let you go on that day, but the scales were just not in balance
I couldn’t trade you for anything…not even the authority I was to give up.
All I want is to know you love me
To hear you talk to me and tell me all you care about
I’m never tired of hearing you speak
A little whisper of thanks
Hear you chat excitedly about me to your friends
To feel you heartbeat quicken as you think of me
To spend a moment to think of me
I am the one who can give you all things in perfection
Love, peace, happiness and affection
A perfect picture of your future
Is this too much to ask my love?
