lyrics

if i could be
[09_22_07]

just another night all alone
silent is the only mode on my phone
i guess that’s alright
sirens singing me lullabies
when the city streets laugh it sounds like cries
i guess that’s alright

if i could be what you need
tell please and i’ll try to succeed
and try to believe
that i can make you smile, and laugh, and sing, and want to lie with me now
i won’t touch
i’ll look at you and dream

just another night to lie in my bed
to dream about all those things that you said
i guess i’m alright
chords to play without a melody
but would you even listen if i could sing?
i guess i’m not alright

if i could be what you need
tell me please and i’ll try to believe
that i can succeed
to make you smile, and laugh, and sing, and want to lie here and be with me now
i won’t touch you
i’ll just look at you and dream

if i could lie to you
to get you to side with me
believe in us and in me just tonight
i’ll take you home and sing to you
and be the song you never knew
if i could be yours for just tonight
i’d be fine
i’d be fine
