For you


I said i'd give up the world
if i could be your lover
Oh yeah i did
that moment i met you
when our eyes met
i found my home
when you smiled
i felt welcome
My world came to an end
and i stopped to love you
my existence ceased
i gave up waking in paradise
just to wake beside you
i chose the security of your arms around me
to that of canines and their half asleep
masters
i gave up the world
for the word that your love i'll have forever.
