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.

    When you love someone and yo know you have to leave that person even tho you don't want to. You had one night together and it was the best you ve ever had. You have never felt that way but every beautiful word hurts the same as mean words or silence. Leaving is the worst thing on the earth. So we re trying to thing about the best, t he best the two people can go through together.

    Have you ever felt like you know you have something that is amazing, but you really just need to have something else. Its difficult to say or think about. But I know in life, its short, and it bothers me because I want to be happy in life, and have someone amazing, but how can I live on with the fact that I love someone, who isn't the one I am with. This song just puts that feeling and thought through my mind. But it encourages me to be happy.

    This song makes me think of all the times me and fiance have shared. No I don't think love at first sight is real. I believe love takes time to build. You have to trust someone before you can love them. No matter what I still believe that when you first run into someone you know whether they will be with you for the rest of you life or not. This song describes my gut feeling I felt the day I met my fiance.
