Work Of Art: Lift

If You Ever Were To Go Away

Sometimes I don't say the things that I should say
I figure you know what I'm thinking anyway
I know there's lots of words you long to hear
But you don't need those words to see how much I care

You know I'm crazy for you
What more can I say?
I think about you honey, every single minute of the day

Look in my eyes, darling
What do you see?
A love that's there, there for you and me
All through the day, I don't think about the things that I should say

Sometimes late at night I lie in bed awake
And think of all the things that I should say
You don't know how much I'd miss your warm and tender kiss
If you ever were to go away, if you ever were to go away

There's certain things you like for me to say
And you wish that I would say them on my own
But maybe I just have a different kind of way
I may not say them in those words but still it's shown

Look in my eyes, darling
What do you see?
A love that's there, there for you and me
All through the day, I don't think about the things that I should say

Sometimes late at night I lie in bed awake
And think of all the things that I should say
You don't know how much I'd miss your warm and tender kiss
If you ever were to go away, if you ever were to go away
