You make my jaw drop at ten paces
My heart stop at five
Around you the numbness encases
And I don’t know if I’m alive
I can bluff you out of kings
With just a three and nine
But one place where I can’t lie
Is how I’m feeling that your mine
You see harmony was formed with two notes
Balance in paint with two coats
And perfection started to swarm
The minute that you were born
Seeing how good it seems
I hope this is not a dream
I’ve wanted this for a while
To be part of that smile
I’d take a bullet in a beat
Just to sweep you of your feet
Being near you every day
Always takes my breath away
If you have any fear
Know I’m always near
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Just to be close to you
