Why can't we just open up,
Put your arms around me,
Cause it feels so right,
With your leg touching mine,
I paid for a quarter,
And this night is half over,
Why can't we just feel the same,
I will be there for everything,
I hope you know I feel this way,
Cause I'm never gonna leave,
No I'm never gonna leave this place,

You gotta tell me when you're coming home,
To the place where I've been,
Patiently waiting for you,
Casue here's the truth,
This may be too soon,
But you can't fight a feeling,
You know is right,
When you feel it too.

Why can't we just open up,
Put your arms around me,
Cause it feels so right,
With your leg touching mine,
I paid for a quarter,
And this night is half over,
Why can't we just feel the same,
I will be there for everything,
I hope you know I feel this way,
Cause I'm never gonna leave,
No I'm never gonna leave this place,

The innocence, gurl, tells me I'm safe,
We've got a whole lot of trust and honest to give,
I will make it easy to say how I feel,
Cause that's how I roll,
If this is more than you can handle,
I guess I'll see you again someday,
When you grow up, you'll find out,
You made a mistake by saying
I'm so sorry.

Why can't we just open up,
Put your arms around me,
Cause it feels so right,
With your leg touching mine,
I paid for a quarter,
And this night is half over,
Why can't we just feel the same,
I will be there for everything,
I hope you know I feel this way,
Cause I'm never gonna leave,
No I'm never gonna leave this place,

    Mmm, i get shivers every time i listen to that part of the song.
    I can't really get a grip on what the song is about, but as most songs are the theme is definitly love.
    Right?
    Also, how can there be no comments before me?!?
    That's crazy
