I'll give you everything
As long as that's all that you want from me
I won't hold back if you won't hold back
Take anything you need

I'll build my whole life around it
I'll build my whole life
I'll build my whole life around it
I'll build my whole life

Live here next to me
I'll say goodnight each night I leave
I won't wake up if you won't wake up
It's you who helps me sleep

When I take you home, I hit every light
When I take you home
When I take you home, I hit every light
When I take you home

I'll build my whole life around it
I'll build my whole life
I'll build my whole life around it
I'll build my whole life

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It's one of the best on the whole album.

    ...

    Personally I think it's just a guy (or girl since she sings too) who just really wants to spend their whole life with the person they love, whether or not that person reciprocates that feeling is a little unclear.
