Girl, you are like summer rain
Soft and warm and delicate
And I am a foolish boy
Tryin' to catch every drop of you
On my tongue...
But there's just too many
And I can't get enough...

You're inches from my fingertips
I've come as close as I can get
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you...
Cause I don't ever wanna miss
Being here with you like this
I'm trying but it's all that I can do
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you...

Girl, you are the morning sky
Glowing calm with burning light
And as I am waking up
You paint your reflection in my eye(I)
Wonder if you've noticed
I can't look away...

CHORUS

And you say, so you say
It's a brilliance meant to fade
Love is wild like a fire
Burning underneath the rain
But this is not the same...

    You can only do so much for the one you want and care about, you know what you want but in order for them to show you they feel the same way, they need to decide in the end.

    He is doing everything he can to be there for her, to love her with the intensity that they both used to love each other with. But then she started to drift away, as did her love for him. He is telling he is trying and doing everything he can to have the old her back and that isn't going to do anymore. She has to be the one that makes the decision to come back. She needs to give her 10%

    i think this means
    'you are so close to having that person and you are doing all you can but the rest is up to them. you are ready to take that step but you are waiting on them to give you the go. '
