If I could say the things I feel, it wouldn't be the same
Though the words come hard to me, I'll say them just for you

I love the way you smile at me

And through the days with each new phrase I hummed that melody
But since the day you came along, I've saved it just for you
I don't believe in magic but I do believe in you
There's so much magic I can do
Now you see me now you don't watch me dive below
And I might sink and I might drown but death don't mean a thing
I learned from you, and you can't even sing
