How I wish you could see the potential,
The potential of you and me
It's like a book elegantly bound,
But in a language that you can't read just yet.

You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart
You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart

There are days when outside your window,
I see my reflection as I slowly pass
And I long for this mirrored perspective,
When we'll be lovers, lovers at last

You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart
You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart

I will possess your heart
I will possess your heart

You reject my advances and desperate pleas
I won't let you, let me down so easily, so easily

You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart
You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart
You gotta spend some time love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find love, I will possess your heart

I will possess your heart
I will possess your heart

    a really nice guy pretty much posted this online recently and I think its towards me.
    its tough cuz I tried to take his advances but he doesnt stand behind them? I dont get it. I gave up on him because Im sorry but I dont think its the girls job to start the relationship.
    If a guy wants to be with a girl they have to make the effort to get the girl and not expect the girl to go to them?!

    Great tune, It reminds me that there are more people out there like myself. I relate to this song, because I know how it feels to completely long for someone, and wish that they would give you a shot, just so that you can prove to them what it really means to give yourself to someone.

    Actually, I think that might be part of the song's meaning. The guy is so nice and sweet, that the girl doesn't even care if he exists. I get the impression he is talking to himself, trying to build up the resolve to talk to her. Maybe.

    I base my opinion on this phrase mostly "There are days when outside your window, I see my reflection as I slowly pass And I long for this mirrored perspective, When we'll be lovers, lovers at last."
    I think this song is from him to him. About getting to know yourself, being okay with yourself and finally loving yourself so that in the long run you are okay being with just you. Noone's gonna love you the way you love yourself. Maybe "You gotta love yourself first before anyone else can."
