Lyrics
Words that pull the trigger
Fear the laughing sound
Haunts you
To consider
Love might turn you around
To face a blind emotion
Words like 'hey let's try'
Words like 'thinking it over'
They just don't apply

[Chorus:]
I'm the boy (you made me)
I'm the boy
I'm the boy
I'm the boy (you made me)
I'm the boy
I'm the boy

Love is...
What you make it
Love the overflow
Play if you can take it some...
They just don't know
If all the rules they're making
Break somebody's heart
What's the use in taking
Baby's fall apart

[Chorus]

You made me realize
That love is just a word
That goes unheard in a situation
Where love is nothing
And you...
Are all I can see

This boy's in love with you
You're everything
I can see
This boy's in love with you
You have taken it all
Away from me
