"I'm Yours" as written by and Daniel John O'donoghue....
You touch these tired eyes of mine
And map my face out line by line
And somehow growing old feels fine
I listen close for I'm not smart
You wrap your thoughts in works of art
And they're hanging on the walls of my heart

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
I'm yours
And though my edges may be rough
And never feel I'm quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I'm yours

You healed these scars over time
Embraced my soul
You loved my mind
You're the only angel in my life
The day news came my best friend died
My knees went weak and you saw me cry
Say I'm still the soldier in your eyes

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
I'm yours
And though my edges may be rough
And never feel I'm quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I'm yours

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
I know I don't fit in that much
But I'm yours

    General CommentI read somewhere on youtube that it was about his mum. At first I thought it was a love song too, but when you think about it, this makes so much more sense.

    He keeps saying how he feels small and weak, just like a child. And then it makes sense too that his mother would be reassuring him, saying "he's still the soldier in her eyes," and that she should be the "only angel in his life" (as opposed to girlfriends, I guess, who just come and go.)

    And of course, if it's about a mother-son relationship, it gives its full meaning to the title "I'm yours."

    General CommentI love that line "say im still the soldier in your eyes"
    its like how every guy wants to be percieced, as strong and without weakness or whatever.
    But then because shes seen him cry he doesnt want that image of him broken.

    The lyrics are great for all their songs, although ima bit sick of listening to them atm since they are always onthe radio here in london plus someones always playing this cd in my house, lol.
