I'm missing you so much, I'll say you died tonight
Just so I can get to you before the sun will rise
I know these times are hard and I feel this too
None of that ever seems to matter when I'm holding you

And I'm wasting away, away from you
And I'm wasting away, away from you

What have I gotten into this time around
I know that I had sworn I'd never trust anyone again but I didn't have to

You had me at hello.

I've never seen a smile that can light the room like yours
It's simply radiant, I see it more with everyday that goes by
I watch the clock to make my timing just right

Would it be okay,
Would it be okay if I took your breath away?

And I'm wasting away, away from you
And I'm wasting away, away from you

What have I gotten into this time around
I know that I had sworn I'd never trust anyone again but I didn't have to

You had me at hello.

You gave me butterflies at the mailbox (you had me at hello)
You gave me butterflies at the mailbox (you had me at hello)
You gave me butterflies at the mailbox (you had me at hello)
You gave me butterflies (you had me at hello)

You gave me butterflies (you are so you)
At the mailbox (you had me at hello)
You gave me butterflies (you are so you)
At the mailbox (you had me at hello)
You had me at hello.
You gave me butterflies (you are so you)
At the mailbox (you had me at hello)
You gave me butterflies (you are so you)
At the mailbox (you had me at hello)

What have I gotten into this time around
I know that I had sworn I'd never trust anyone again but I didn't have to

You had me at hello
You had me at hello
You had me at hello

    This song to me is indescribable, it's a link between what i had and what i lost. Every time i hear it i want to cry because i messed up with the guy and this song he sent to me and said this is how i feel when it all messes up but it was my fault and now i've lost him forever... this song is all i have left of him.

    This song is my Favorite and its the best song ever it reminds me how me and my boyfriend started to talk he was my freshman crush he was a junior at the time so I shy so I didnt talk to him cause I was shy and he's the only guy who makes me shy and gives me butterflies so one day I was gonna message him out of no where this song starts to play and I got a message from him and it said hello so it was perfect cause he actually had me at hello. He's the only guy who ever gave me butterflies and Im happy to be with him. :) I told him about this song and he listened to it and I told him thats how i actually feel he said this is gonna be our song no matter what happens between me and him :D so been together about a year now

    I love this song... reminds of someone I really truely miss. it is perfect but to be honest he had me at first glance even. It's just too bad I don't have him anymore.
