Hmm... (3x)
You by light
Is the greatest find
In a world full wrong
You're the thing that's right
Finally made it through the lonely
To the other side

Chorus with Jason Reeves:
You said it again, my heart's in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I'm at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows burning in the dark
And I'm in love and I'm terrified
For the first time and the last time in my only life

And this could be good
It's already better than last
And love is worse than knowing
You're holding back
I could be all that you needed
If you let me try

You said it again, my heart's in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I'm at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows burning in the dark
And I'm in love and I'm terrified
For the first time and the last time in my only

I only said it 'cause I mean it
I only mean it 'cause it's true
So don't you doubt what I've been dreaming
'Cause it fills me up and holds me close whenever I'm without you

You said it again, my heart's in motion (you said it again)
Every word feels like a shooting star
Watching the shadows burning in the dark
And I'm in love and I'm terrified
For the first time and the last time in my only life
Life, life
In my only life

    Being in love and being terrified at the same time. The most magical feeling, the most expressive thought comes as long as you're in love with the person who feels the same thing for you. One shot of love at this lifetime. That's it.

    E/she's in love but they're scared to be brokenhearted in the one that they love... In their first time and their last time :))
