I was around
The first time you fell down,
Picked you up off the playground
And I've never once asked
"Hey what about me?"
I've been the one
Between all the boyfriends,
To hold you
And all of your problems;
What do I have to do to make you see?
You beat back love
But somebody wants you.
You've had enough,
But somebody needs you.
You push and shove,
But somebody's still in love with you.
You fight it off,
But somebody finds you.
You build a wall,
But it doesn't hide you.
You try to fall,
But somebody won't let go of you;
Somebody will always be in love with you.
I'm the one you've always been close to,
Know all the things that I'm not supposed to,
Saved you from the wolves at 2AM.
All the nights you were lying beside me,
Too close for friends in the light of a TV,
When will the longing stop and the love begin?
