I don’t want you to get upset
Even though we’ve barely met
I know she didn’t mean it
Please don’t give up, no, don’t quit

If I could take you far away, I would
I would take you wherever you want, if I could
But until then, let’s just sit here in the countryside
I’m better around you, I’m purified

(Chorus)
I just want to leap off the ground, with you, and fly
I want to take you up, through the clouds, into the sky
You and I could be whatever we want, way up so high
And if you want to touch the blazing stars, for you, I would try

Please don’t be sad
I really don’t want you to be mad
I hate it when you act that way
You can make it rain, and it dampens my day

And anything you want, I’ll give to you
Whatever it takes for it to be just us two
I would make the world stop turning
Because, my dear, my heart is burning

(Chorus)
I just want to leap off the ground, with you, and fly
I want to take you up, through the clouds, into the sky
You and I could be whatever we want, way up so high
And if you want to touch the blazing stars…for you, I would try

I would do anything to keep you…by my side

Very nice. Part of me is wondering if you had a certain someone in mind when you wrote it.
