Just be in love
And I'll kiss you like you've always wanted
Just close your eyes
I'll still live as if I'm dying

If I don't make your heart skip a beat
Then hate me
If I don't make you feel anything
Then it's me

I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life
I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life

Just close your eyes
And I'll kiss you like there's no tomorrow

If I don't make your heart skip a beat
Then hate me
If I don't make you feel anything
Then it's me

I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life
I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life

So sleep now, so deep in static
Drifting in the shadows
Hold me close
To the glow of headlights and TV screens

I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life

    General CommentHa, No one has commented on this? This is one of the simplest songs ever, but means like totally everything you could want in a love song. It seems like its about a guy, or lady, trying to impress the other, or just to show them how they feel, and telling the other person, Hey don't feel bad, you are perfect, Im the one who is wrong here... Its a wonderful song, with music that too fits the song, They arent trying to do too much with this song, But it sure does get a lot accomplished anyway.

    General CommentTo add to that, Maybe this song is about a third person in a relationship, like Just be in love with your man, and I'll kiss you like he could never, Just close your eyes, I have nothing to lose anyway, so I'll live it up. And then it goes on how the third man thinks the girl is perfect, but her boyfriend dosen't show her that, and she can either choose between her love and him, but he dosen't blame her if she picks her love. i dont know

    General CommentI do believe the line that says:
    "Hold me close to the fourwall headlights"
    should be:
    "Hold me close thru the glow of headlights"

    Amazing song. Somtimes simple is for the best, and this is no exception. Beautiful.

    General CommentI agree with the first comment about a guy trying to impress a girl and show her his feelings. The lyrics are so simple, yet so romantic. Hah. I'd love to hear JP play this live...

    General Comment"if i dont make you heart skip a beat, then hate me"

    ive used this lyric to live by more times than i can count. its so drastic but its the way your emotions go sometimes. its love or its nothing. & if its not the love... the entire being is doomed to heartbreak. you might as well hate me if you dont love me. not one time can we be just friends.
