I wish I could do better by you
Cuz that's what you deserve.
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work.

While I'm off chasing my own dreams,
Sailing around the world,
Please know that I'm yours to keep,
My beautiful girl.

When you cry a piece of my heart dies,
Knowing that I may have been the cause.
If you were to leave,
Fulfill someone else's dreams,
I think I might totally be lost.

You don't ask for no diamond rings,
No delicate strings of pearls,
That's why I wrote this song to sing,
My beautiful girl.

    he sings a slowed down version of the first verse of "Sensible Heart"
    - I get so distracted
    - By some people's reactions
    - That I don't see my own faults
    - For what they are, for what they are

    Or, perhaps it's clearly and plainly just about him and his relationship. being he's a musician and he travels while his, now, wife (previously just a girlfriend) and he wants to let her know he loves her and appreciates everything shes sacrificed for him, mainly the nights spent apart while he travels and tours. It's not that he never loved her, or stopped, and realized he shouldn't have stopped loving her. It's about him letting her know he loves her with all his heart, and appreciates everything shes done for him, and how she doesn't ask for anything (not materialistic objects persay). She doesn't ask him to just stop and be with her, she lets him go every time he has to leave. If she were to cry while he is away and he finds out, it hurts him because the potential of the reason for her tears is be cause he's not there and she misses him dearly, or even she's sick of it and maybe is crying because shes sick of long distance relationships.
