If melody is my destiny
Then what's left of me
I'll give to you

If next to me
Is all that you need to be
Would you settle for fantasy
If it's the best you could do

Can I have my cake
Can I have you too
Would you follow me
Could I ask you to

Would the world between us
Break these ties
We've work so hard to realize
Can postcard say
What I see in your eyes
Could I ever break away

Would I be satisfied
And find peace inside
Rolling half my life
Over broken white lines

Can I have my cake
Can I have you too
Would you follow me
Could I ask you to

Will I wake up one morning
And see your face
And streaks on the window
That the rainstorm makes
Could you bear all the weight
And the strength that it takes
Could I ever break away

Can I have my cake
Can I have you too
Would you follow me
Could I ask you to

Would the world between us
Break these ties
We've worked so hard to realize
Can a postcard say
What I see in your eyes
Could I ever break away
