Want

I can say with truth;
I never saw this coming.
I can say to you;
I should have started running.

You can make me want
When I know better.
You can make me hurt
For what I cannot have.

Chorus:
I close my eyes and see you;
I breathe and taste you in my mouth;
I ache for everything that is you;
And I cannot do without.

I am far too proud to beg;
If you would listen.
Words are less than what is said;
I can’t get over this.

You smile and everything fades;
I can’t escape it.
You look like you’ve just got it made
When all I want is you.

Chorus:
I close my eyes and see you;
I breathe and taste you in my mouth;
I ache for everything that is you;
And I cannot do without.

Bridge:
How can you be the air to me?
How can you make it hurt to breathe?
How can I make you stop and see
Me?

Chorus:
I close my eyes and see you;
I breathe and taste you in my mouth;
I ache for everything that is you;
And I cannot do without.
