The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me all you've got (tell me more)
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
When all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
