If I could cut little stars
All out of the paper sky
I'd put them in a box
And make wishes at night

It would be you and I
Inside a secret we would find
At the bottom of a garden
In the house that we would buy

Your eyes
They never tell a lie
And your smile
It gets me every time
And please don't wish me awake

My heart is in my thoat
Just singing out for you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
My heart is like a boat
Just sailing after you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

It's like it's cool when I cry
'Cuz I never show and tell
When you kiss me I die
Oh you know me so well

If I could bottle your tears
I would throw them from the clouds
In our world I'd be dancing
And the rain would fall down

Your name
My favourite word to say
And I dream
You in my every day
And please don't wish me awake

My heart is in my thoat
Just singing out for you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
My heart is like a boat
Just sailing after you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

And you eyes
They never tell a lie
And your smile
It gets me every time
Please don't wish me awake

'Cuz my heart is in my thoat
Just singing out for you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
My heart is like a boat
Just sailing after you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
My breath is like the wind
Whispering after you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
My heart is like a boat
Sailing after you
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

    Lyric Correction...It would be you and I inside a secret, we would find at the bottom of a garden, in the house that we would buy

    You think it's cool when I cry cause I never show and tell

    your name, my favorite word to say and I dream you in my everyday

    my breath is like the wind whispering 'i love you'

    General CommentThanks so much for the corrections;; I didn't watch the video while writing these, so I didn't have the added advantage of lip-reading :3

    Song MeaningThis song is so beautiful! I can't wait for the new album. If the other songs are like this-so well written, romantic, pretty-then i'll buy it.
