Waking up to find another day
The moon got lost again last night
But now the sun has finally had its say
I guess I feel alright

But it hurts when I think, when I let it sink in
It's all over me
I know you're here in the dark
I'm watching you sleep, it hurts alot

And all I know is, you've got to give me everything
And nothing less cause, you know I give you all of me

I'll give you everything that I am
I'm handing over everything that I've got
Cause I wanna have a really true love
Don't ever want to have to go and give you up

Stay up till 4 in the morning, and the tears are pouring
And I wanna make it worth the fight
What have we been doing for all this time?
Baby if we're gonna do it, come on and do it right

All I wanted was to know I'm safe
Don't want to loose the love I've found
Remember when you said that you would change?
Don't let me down

It's not fair, how you are
I can't be complete
Can you give me more?

And all I know is, you've got to give me everything
And nothing less cause, you know I give you all of me

I give you everything that I am
I'm handing over everything that I got
Cause I wanna have a really true love
Don't ever want to have to go and give you up

Stay up till 4 in the morning, and the tears are pouring
And I wanna make it worth the fight
What have we been doing for all this time?
Baby if we're gonna do it, come on and do it right

Oh please, you know what I need
Save all your loving for me
We can't escape our love
Give me everything that you have

I give you everything that I am
I'm handing over everything that I got
Cause I wanna have a really true love
Don't ever want to have to go and give you up

Stay up till 4 in the morning, and the tears are pouring
And I wanna make it worth the fight
What have we been doing for all this time?
Baby if we're gonna do it, come on and do it right

    General Commenti'm pretty sure this song is about a girl giving way more than the guy in the relationship, and she knows she should let it go but loves him and doesn't want to. She's trying to tell him to make an effort.

    General CommentThis song is about how a girl is in a relationship where she gives more than she receives. She feels like her boyfriend doesn't give her all the love that she wants/deserves. She tries to ignore these problems when she thinks about it, it hurts her but she doesn't want to leave him because she loves him. So she's asking her bf to give her his whole heart and be fully dedicated to making her happy.

    General CommentBeautiful song!!! It almost sounds sad, but it's actually a happy song. She's so in love and she's hoping and praying that the person she loves so much will never change from the person she fell in love with. It's basically saying, "Hey, I love where we are and I love you, but if you ever start having doubts, tell me ASAP so we can work it out - TOGETHER. It's a great song for couples who hit the one year mark.

    General CommentThe song speaks for it self. Its my favorite song off the album as well. It basically about loving someone so much that she wishes that person is able to love her back just as much as she loves him.

    General Commenti think it could also be about the point in a relationship where you doubt the love, you question "is this really the person im going to spend the rest of my life with?" "does this person love me as much as i think they do"
    the little doubts that creep into your head despite the love.
