I should ink my skin, with your name.
And take my passport out again,
And just replace it.
See I could do without a tan on my left hand,
Where my fourth finger meets my knuckle.
And I should run you a hot bath, fill it up with bubbles.

'Cause maybe your loveable,
And maybe your my snowflake,
And your eyes turn from green to grey,
In the winter I'll hold you in a cold place.
And you should never cut your hair,
'Cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder, (mm)

And you will never know, just how beautiful you are to me,
But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.

And Would you ever feel guilty? If you did the same to me.
Would you make me a cup of tea, to open my eyes in the right way?

And I know you love shrek, 'cause we've watched it twelve times.
But, maybe you're hoping for a fairy-tale to, but if your DVD breaks today,
You should of got a VCR, because I've never owned a blueray, true say.

And I've always been shit at computer games, and your brother always beats me,
And if I lost, I'd go across and chuck all the controllers at the tv, and then you'd laugh at me, and be asking me, if I'm going to be home next week,
And then you'd lie with me, until I fall asleep,
And flutter an eyelash on my cheek, between the sheets.

And you will never know, just how beautiful you are to me,
But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.

And I think you hate the smell of smoke,
You always try get me to stop,
You drink as much as me, and I get drunk a lot,
So I take you to the beach, and walk along the sand,
And I'll make you a heart pendant, with a pebble held in my hand.
And I'll carve it like a necklace, so the heart falls where your chest is,
And now a piece of me, is a piece of the beach, and it falls just where it needs to be, and rests peacefully.
So you just need to breathe, to feel my heart against yours now, against yours now.

But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.
But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.

Well maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up,
Maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up,
I said maybe I fell in love, when you woke me up.

    i think its how his love grew for the lady and every time he opened his eyes and heart she was there to receive it and he got closer to her and learnt more about her which made him fall more in love with her and he didn't know how to show it so he listened watched her a lot and he see how much he loves her

    When i listen to one of his song,in particular when i listen to this song,i feel like i am in someway doing something bad,like i am non allowed to listen to it... This just because it is so personal,so pure,so true. His ability is rare,it is a gift from god if god does exist,or someone,something else.

    He knows every single little thing about this girl and each thing makes him love her more. He loves her every single second of his waking day, but also thinks he might be dreaming because it's so unreal. A really beautiful song and really intimate because it's so personal
