You've been around for such a long time now,
And maybe I could leave you, but I don't know how.
And why should I be lonely every night,
When I could be with you, oh yes you make it right.
So I don't listen to the boys who say,
That you're bad for me and I should turn you away.
Cause they don't know about us, they've never heard of love.
I get a feeling when I look at you,
Wherever you go now, I wanna' be there too.
They say we're crazy, but I just don't care,
And if they keep on talking, still they'll get nowhere.
So I don't mind if they don't understand,
When I look at you and you hold my hand.
Cause they don't know about us, they've never heard of love.
Why should it matter to us if they don't approve?
We should just take our chances what if we've got nothing to lose?
Baby, there's no need for living in the past,
Cause now I found good lovin', gonna' make it last.
I tell the others, "don't bother me",
Cause when I look at you, they don't see what I see.
And I don't listen to their wasted lines,
Got my eyes wide open and I see the signs.
Cause they don't know about us, they've never heard of love.
So I don't listened to their wasted lines,
Got my eyes wide open and I see the signs.
Cause they don't know about us, they've never heard of love

    General Commentben gibbard is king.

    far from a talentless hack.
    only the ignorant would accuse him of that.
