Us

Your hair was gold, your eyes were blue, and there were many who pursued 

I shouldn’t join the fight, I’m sure its wrong 

So I’ll tell you that we’ll be friends, and you wonder why I pretend 

To view you as a duckling, not a swan

 

Oh, I’ve waited much too long to show you love

I’m sure that I’ve waited much too long to show you love

 

As you keep journals of our time, I wait for names with which to rhyme

Not knowing that your name already fits

See I want you, do you want me, with blinding doubt it’s hard to see

And I’m not sure without my movie script

 

Oh, I’ve waited much too long to show you show you love

I fear that I’ve waited much too long to show you love

 

You caught this sinking stone, now my heart is not my own

This is where I’m supposed to be, here with you and you with me

 

The wedding bells have run and you’re my bride, now this broken love is something I can’t hide

I’m the man that you will need my dear, for when hell comes down I’ll still be standing here

 

You caught this sinking stone, now my heart is not my own

This is where I’m supposed to be, here with you and you with me
