I'm scared today
More than I told you I was yesterday
Give me a moment to catch my breath
And hold me every second left

Proud of me
That's the only way I want you to be
Look at me and love
What you see!

I won't make it alone
I need something to hold

Kiss me on my shoulder
Tell me it's not over
I promised to always come home to you
Remind me that I'm older
To be brave, smart, sweet and bolder
And don't give up on what we're trying to do

Don't count the miles,
Count the I love you's

We made it out
And all the other people are asking how
This doesn't even sound like truth
To grow from a group

But one day we will realize
How hard it was, how hard we tried
And how our hearts made it out alive

Kiss me on my shoulder
Tell me it's not over
I promised to always come home to you
Remind me that I'm older
To be brave, smart, sweet and bolder
And don't give up on what we're trying to do

Don't count the miles,
Count the I love you's

And these are words
I wish you said
But that's not how it went
'Cause you gave up on us in the end

And I won't make it alone
I need something to hold

Kiss me on my shoulder
Tell me it's not over
I promised to always come home to you
Remind me that I'm older
To be brave, smart, sweet and bolder
And don't give up on what we're trying to do

Kiss me on my shoulder
Tell me it's not over
I promised I'd come home to you
Remind me that I'm older
To be brave, smart, sweet and bolder
And don't give up on what we're trying to do

Don't count the miles,
Count the I love you's

    This is a song i hope my girlfriend will sing to me one day after we get through the hard time. She cheated on me and i just want her to get better, feel better and gain a better relationship so we can still live out all of those dreams we had as better stronger people.

    Even when facing some sort of problem, fight against it. Never give up on it, unless it's bringing you pain more than joy. Unless it's missing its purpose. She's scared of loosing him. She wants his encouragement. Se wants to face their problems together. To stick together no matter what happens. They shouldn't count how long and how hard they've tried, but how they meant to each other and the amount of love and passion between them.

    You can't make love happen. No matter how much you put into it or how bad you want it. It takes two people to want it with everything that they are: simultaneously. When it's done and you have given everything of yourself, it's still heartbreaking when the other person realizes too late what could have been. Ken l.
