I know you've been hurt before
I can see it in your eyes
And if you just shut the door
I would not be surprised

Even though I know you've heard it
These words I'm tryin' to say
I think the others only flirted
With the true meaning of always

Chorus

Well you can say what you wanna
But I ain't gonna
Stop this journey to the center of your heart

I see the candle through your window
It burns there every night
The shadow leaves an innuendo
Of no one holdin' you right

Many nights I've dreamt you near me
But awakened to you gone
I know one day you'll hear me
I don't care how long

Chorus

I've waited a lifetime baby
Just to know your name
We've done everything in our minds
Let's stop the game, lets stop it

Even though I know
You've heard these words I'm tryin' to say
Somehow I think these others
They only flirted with the true meaning of always
