Jessica

Assured someday somebodys love is gonna save you
I know that something's always bound to come along
You simply shed away the days that just continue
To keep adding up.... and leaving you alone....
No matter where I may be at, at any moment
It seems you're never very far from my mind
And every time it slips in focus, I become it
And I'd love for you to try and step inside
.... And to feel the way I feel
And to see the way I do
Take the world I've concealed - behind these eyes -
And how it all applys to you
..... I don't want cause you pain
You hold my heart in your hands
And forever I'll remain - because It's struck me in this way -
It's all the truth

I've heard you say nobodys ever going to hurt you
Like that again and leave you broken on the floor
And now the world is full of people you just see through
Or if you even see them..... anymore.....
Sometimes it's hard for me to tell you what I'm thinking
'Cause I'm afraid the words will come out wrong
I love to lie awake and watch you when you're sleeping
With your arms around me, keeps me hanging on....

What was years ago
Never seems to feel that way though
You ran.... I had to let you go
You ran.... I couldn't drag

I'll stop complaining all together just to show you
What you mean to me and how deep the fires burn
But you wont talk to me, I don't know what to do
And now I'm running short of places I can turn
No matter where I may be at, at any moment
It seems as though you're always on my mind
I think the world of you and wanted you to know it
That you're the girl I've dreamed of all my life
...... And to feel the way I feel
And to see The way I do
I know it's hard to tell what's real - or not -
And how much that bothers you
...... I don't want to cause you pain
Because my heart is in your hands
And forever I'll remain - because it's struck me trhis way -
It's just the truth
