your song

from by John Rankin



I feel a bit mellow, is that ok with you?
I’ve been wanting to tell you, the reason I love you is you
And this feeling’s not shallow, this feeling I feel
I’ve been waiting, from the day I met you I knew
It’s true, I’ve been broken but now I can fix
The heart that wasn’t open feels good to be missed
And your soul is my token, for these wings that are floatin’

I love you, but will you ever believe this truth (x2)

In the truest of lyrics, in the heart of my spirit
From the beginning, I’ve been singing for you
Words on a page, first drawn on a mirror
I cannot wait for you to hear them
The ebb and the flow of your soul is the purest I’ve ever known
Cause you are the reason I’m breathing, it’s beautiful
In my eyes, you’re my new high
And all of those dreams I believe in are now and forever more
The reason I’m seeing so clearly is truly you
Cause you are my new high

I love you
Darling, it's always been true
