I'm asked to walk her to her car at night
That's my job when it's dark outside
But what she really wants is to be by my side
I'm her blanket when it's five degrees
It's so cold, we can see when we breathe
What she really wants is to be next to me

I'll be her shelter while we wait for our cab standing in the rain
And it never seems to bother me

And I'm not giving in, you're not calling it quits
We have it too good now
And we, oh we love it how
I've been looking for, you've been waiting for somebody just like this
And we have it now
And we make it easy somehow

Oh, she's my music when I'm trying to sleep
When I forget the words, she knows everything
What I really want is to hear her sing
She's my feet when I cannot dance
She just loves it and she doesn't laugh
What I really love, she says I'm not so bad

You're the one who keeps the two of us from going overboard
I can see that you are good for me
And we're the ones who changed love to what it used to be
So simple, so sweet

I don't want to let you go
Something I should know
I don't want to let you go anymore

I'm not giving in, you're not calling it quits
We have it too good now
I've been looking for, you've been waiting for somebody just like this
And we have it now
And we make it easy somehow

I'm not giving in, you're not calling it quits
We have it too good now
And we, oh we love it how
I've been looking for, you've been waiting for somebody just like this
And we have it now
And we make it easy somehow
And we make it easy somehow
