I want to write songs about
Two strangers starting out
It's been a long time since I fell
It's time you knew as well

I want to lose myself within
The smallest details of your life
Let them assume
An importance in mine

Sometimes it's just butterflies
Other times a hurricane
It's ripples
Ripples and driving rain

I want to be right about you
I want you to be
An angel sent to save me
I've set my heart on you
I want you to bring
The curtain down on the waiting

I've nothing to lose
I've everything to gain
And I'm not abandoning all fear
Isn't life too short for shyness?

The times I talked myself into
Telling you, decided to
Then I see you
And I just think: "I can't do this..."

I want to be right about you
I want you to be
An angel sent to save me
I've set my heart on you
I want you to bring
The curtain down on the waiting

Doubled up with longing, 3 a.m.
Anything is better than this
Even a "no" taking all hope
Even a "no" taking all hope

Sometimes it's just butterflies
Other times a hurricane
Screaming
In my head and through my veins...
