No. 72

I watch you sleep and behind your eyelids I can see

You’re dreaming and I wonder: Do you ever dream of me?

Cause in my dreams I build my whole world around you,

No, that’s a little too much, it doesn’t sound quite true

 

Let’s just say that I don’t dream of anyone else, no

And that I don’t ever dream of letting you go, oh

Writing a song for you‘s much harder than I thought,

But I’m gonna give it one more try

 

So this is my lovesong, try number seventy-two,

After seventy-one that just didn’t do

This is the lovesong that is way overdue

This is a love song – just for you

 

You can be the grumpiest beast that I’ve ever known

You know the bitchiest sides that I’ve ever shown

But in the end of the day when we go to sleep

I know you’re the man that I wanna keep

 

Sometimes we’re weak, sometimes we’re strong,

Sometimes we’re right and sometimes we’re wrong,

But I just want a lovesong as plain as can be

I want a lovesong that will make you love me

 

So this is my lovesong, try number seventy-two,

After seventy-one that just didn’t do

This is the lovesong that is way overdue

This is a love song – just for you

 

I tried uncountable words and phrases to express what I feel

I tried uncountable harmonies to make it sound real

I wanna sing you a song of which I mean every word

And I want nothing ambiguous to cause you any hurt

 

The truth is, every day when I wake up

I write hundreds and thousands of poems into the wind

And I tell them to follow and dance around your head

So you’re never without my love

 

And I hope that one day they will spread

Around the world, so wherever you are,

They’re always right behind you, running ahead, ahead

From the moment you get up until you go to bed

You’re surrounded by invisible expressions unsaid

So you’re never without my love

 

So this is my lovesong, try number seventy-two,

After seventy-one that just didn‘t do

This is the lovesong that is way overdue

This is a love song – just for you

 

So this is my lovesong, try number seventy-two,

After seventy-one that just didn‘t do

This is the lovesong that is way overdue

This is a love song – just for you

 

So this is my lovesong, try number seventy-two,

After seventy-one that just didn‘t do

This is the lovesong that is way overdue

This is a love song – just for you
