I know you belong to somebody new but tonight you belong to me Although we're apart you're a part of my heart and tonight you belong to me Way down by the stream how sweet it will seem once more just to dream in the moonlight My honey I know with the dawn that you will be gone but tonight you belong to me just a little ol' me
Inconvenient 03:15
I'm in love, how inconvenient I had my guard up so I couldn't feel it But you found your way in when I least expected it and you say you love me and I can tell you mean it how inconvenient I was so good at distractions at keeping my mind on shallow interactions but you showed me talk was cheap and led me into the deep like I'd never seen it and now I believe it how inconvenient I had my plans, so much to accomplish but holding your hand was never on the list now it's at the top Love is a fire that lights up the night sky it'll guide you home when you're lost and alone on the longest drives it'll sing to you when you're sleeping it's that secret you can't keep in and though you can't see it it's all that you need but it's not convenient
I wish I had answers to your questions but you should know that I have questions of my own like “could you not?” and “do you mind?” cuz all your words do is remind me that I’m forever alone I understand you’re just trying to be helpful when you say "it’ll happen someday" but see that’s one thing you can’t guarantee cuz not everything in life is “meant to be” So I’ll stay "forever alone" You act like it’s not for a lack of trying that I’ve been shooting too high or out of my league and just because they’re selling something I ain’t buying doesn’t mean I don’t want the same things So I’ll answer all your cliches with some cliches of my own to make you think I’m not "forever alone" *whistle solo* I try my best not to let it under my skin but my patience sometimes wears thin If I get invited just one more time to a wedding where the bride is 25 I swear to god… I’m not trying to say that I’m better than them Cuz I’m not everyone’s cup of tea And it’s not that I don’t think it can’t happen it’s the fear that the things I want, don’t want me So I’m sorry I can’t make you feel better but the truth is: I don’t have to So maybe one day if the person’s right they’ll make me feel it was worth the fight to be "forever alone" of being "forever alone"
What if you could say anything at all? I swear I'd just stay here so I could give you all the time in the world, all the time in the world You got lost somewhere somewhere in between what you thought they wanted and what you really need And your story's untold when they placed you on hold So take all the time you need all the time you need to catch me up to speed When it gets too loud and you can't turn it down, the voices in your mind they say that no one cares and you always overshare but darlin, it's a lie cuz I don't mind So go on tell me everything cuz everything else can wait
You've got every little piece of me scattered all throughout our history and put together carefully so I'm what you wanna see I've got only what is left of you after all the shit I put you thru we come together just to come unglued it's what we always do and so I've been mistaken before our past gives and takes as it wants to, love and we might be thru with it now but it ain't thru with us So what happens in the aftermath? In the bed we made with the questions we asked and the road is paved with the answers we gave the ones we can't take back I see colors when I look at you the lies are white but the truth is black and blue do we walk it off to heal this bruise or break it off in two? We don't have to fight for this to not be right and so I've been mistaken before our past gives and takes as it wants to, love and we might be thru with it now but it ain't thru with us

He saw her walk into the party and in that moment he was changed the girl in the dress with no one to impress was forever burned into his brain two years later they were married in back yard of his parents’ house she looked him in the eyes and said I’m on your side and he lost any trace of doubt When you love with your whole heart you give them the knife that can gut you apart and instead pray they'll take it and carve out a place you feel safe in so you must ask yourself this if love is worth the risk She put the flowers on the nightstand next to the cards and the balloons the nurse makes the rounds as she straightens his gown they both know it will be soon you see 40 years they’d been together She never let herself plan for this she’d made up her mind they’d have so much more time but time is indifferent Cuz when you say that you love someone you’re saying you’ll sit by their side at the movies or at sunset or when they take their last breath so you must ask yourself this if love is worth the risk love is more than bending a knee with a ring It’s made up of all the moments you don't see it’s threading a needle and weaving the string slowly over time It’s the slow dance in the kitchen at night when the kids are in bed and the dishes are drying it's eyes that know you and skin that collides as your stories intertwine love is flying in the face of the sweet devastation and though it will end you'd do it again so let me tell you this love is worth the risk
