I ain't gonna change you or ask you to explain
i ain't gonna chase you if you up and run away
i ain't gonna call you more than once a day
i ain't gonna question anything you have to say

maybe you're safe behind a little place inside your mind
so i won't try to take down that wall

i don't want to hold you up, i don't want to tie you down
i don't want to save you, dear, i don't need a queen right now
i don't want to to put your pretty finger in a ring
i don't want to promise you much of anything

i just want to hold your hand
i just want to kiss your face

now i won't ever stop you, or tell you what to do
i ain't gonna act like i've stood in both your shoes
i ain't gonna hurt you or say that i'm confused
i ain't gonna want you for anything but you

maybe you're safe behind a little place inside your mind
so i won't try to take down that wall

i don't want to hold you up, i don't want to tie you down
i don't want to save you, dear, i don't need a queen right now
i don't want to to put your pretty finger in a ring
i don't want to promise you much of anything

i just want to hold your hand
i just want to kiss your face

maybe you're safe behind a little place inside your mind
so i won't try to take down your wall

i don't want to hold you up, i don't want to tie you down
i don't want to save you, dear, you don't need a king right now
i don't want to to put your pretty finger in a ring
i don't want to promise you much of anything

i just want to hold your hand
i just want to kiss your face
i just want to lay you down
i just want to say your name
i just want to feel you there
i just want to play your game

    General CommentFirst of all, this song is amazing, and if you get a chance to check out his other singles, they may be listed under iamdavidcook, but they are amazing.

    this song is beautiful, but not too hard to figure out what it's about

    it is about a girl that he has strong feelings for, but doesnt want to move on, or furthermore they're relationship, but just wants to stay just where they are. he understands, and loves her to the point where he will wait until she is ready to move on.

    there is something holding her back at this moment, but it also seems that there is also something holding him back, i believe part of the reason he is so willing to wait and stay just where he is, is because he likes where they are right now, and doesnt want to attempt or change anything that might mess it up.
