I Want to Say I Do


I don't want to love you because of your eyes deep,
I don't want to love you because together we sleep,
I don't want to love you because of your hips,
I don't want to love you because of your lips.
I don't want to love you because of your breasts,
I don't want to love you because you pass my tests.

I want to dream about you when you are away,
I want to live in the moment when together we stay.
I want to desire your presence in my life,
I want to know that you'll stay in strife.
I want to believe you love me too,
I want to say I do.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
