you're the sun and the moon and all the stars
you're my first thought in the morning and you are
the wind as it blows over my head
you're the one that i love best

you're the reason that i breathe and I'm alive
you're the reason that i left my friends behind
you're the reason that i cry myself to sleep
you're the only one i need

and i can't stand the thought of waking up another morning
not knowing if you're mine
and i can't stand the thought of living without you
oh i would rather die

oh the one that i love best, please be mine
i can still feel your breath upon my neck
you can still smell the perfume in your bed
i can still see your footsteps in the yard
you're the one that broke my heart

and i can't stand the thought of waking up another morning
not knowing if you're mine
and i can't stand the thought of living without you
oh i would rather die

oh the one that i love best
oh the one that i love best
oh the one that i love best
please be mine

    General CommentFavorite track off her debut. Lovely voice. Nice work Dan Auerbach! Pretty straightforward meaning in my book.

    A few edits (my take):
    "You're the reason that I'm breathing and alive"
    and
    "You can still smell the perfume in your bed"
