Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time...

Maybe I'm afraid of the way I love you

The safest place in the world, I've found, is in your arms. Tucked under your elbow with my head against your chest, listening to your heartbeat and staring at the ceiling as if it's my own blue sky. I love it when I can feel you laugh. When the ticking clock doesn't matter and we have all the time in the world, but it's just not enough. And I love the way you're different. You protect me as if I'm special. As if I deserve to be loved. You make me feel lucky. And I know they love to taunt you. And I know some dislike you. But I stopped caring long ago. We don't have to put on an act for them. I know that you're too good for me. That I'm confused and reckless and tempted. And I know you love me anyway. I've come to believe that the warmest place in the world is in your arms. The bitter chill of the world can't get me there. I'm not alone. I'm understood. I love the way you kiss my forehead and stroke my hair. And no matter what I do I can't get enough. But I hate the way I ruin it with my street walker antics, pulling you in so forcefully, causing you to make that face that always confused me. You're old fashioned romance with new aged charm. To say the least you're perfect. And that scares me....
...Nothing can ever be as perfect as it seems...

Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you
