If I had a chance, I’d have given you up long ago
But you’ve stuck in my ribs, with your vice of a grip and won’t let go

You make your mark with ease
It looks just like it was care-free

I don’t know what is worse
I find when you’re around I can’t breathe
But when you go away, all rational thought takes a back seat

I can’t seem to get my mind clear
If If find some reprieve, I could jostle you free, and won’t need to admit

You’re the one I want
Just why I don’t understand
When you’re in control
You keep me on my toes
There’s so much I’m learning

You’re the one I want
It’s like I never had a choice
If I had a say, I’d have wished you away
As it is, I’m at your door

I guess that’s why I’m here
Because nobody else has even come close to making me feel

You’re the one I want
That confidence is just fear
Though I give and you take
You’re just as liable to break
And I know that you’re just as scared

You’re the one that I want
I’m beginning to understand
That as hard as we plan, it makes no difference
When love demands

You’re the one I want
And you can have the same
With you I see hope in not needing to know
And not needing to play it safe
