Oh you know that I'll give you my heart
Even if it's torn apart
Coz I've come too far to be scared
And I don't regret what we shared

But you know that I'll love you for good
And I'll love you much more than I should
And I can't help but cry when you're so far away
But I'll smile coz I hope that you'll be back one day

Chorus:
If I died in your arms
Would you then give me your love
Would you tell me that you need me
and that I was the one

Now there's nothing I can say to you
To make you feel the same way too
When you walk away I just want to die
And I try not to break down and cry

But you know that I love you this way
Enough to let go and let you walk away
And maybe you'll come back maybe you won't
But when you're not with me I feel so alone

Chorus x2

Now there's one thing I need you to know
Coz you think that you just know me so
That I'll be there if you ask me to
If you only knew
That I love you so much that it hurts
My broken heart feels so much worse
You do what you want coz I gave you my best
And you know something,
If you ask me, I would say yes

Chorus x3

Would you tell that you need me and that I was the one x2

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song. she is finally letting herself feel for someone else. the one that she loves has or is leaving and she is trying to keep him from going. i saw her sing this song live and it was, for lack of a better word, beautiful. but one of the lyrics are wrong on here, it should be "you do what you want coz i gave you my thrist"

    General CommentThis is my favorite by Colleen. I can't listen to this one enough. Her voice and emotion are perfect for the lyrics. He's left her and she misses the man she loves. She's accepted the fact that he's gone, but a part of her still hopes he'll return. It's a long song (over 7 minutes) yet it's never long enough. Great great song...her best !
