Dried ink on an empty page
White sheets with a silent space
Our pillow talk doesn’t speak no more.

Long way to a dead end street
Same show in a different scene
You just don’t see what I see no more.

There’s a place hiding underneath the blame
Where we know we never stopped believing
Don’t stop beating now

Curse me out
And knock me down
Stop the clock
And take us back where we were found.

If we only get one love.
If we only get one chance.
If we only get one heart to bruise.

If we only get one fight.
If we only get one life.
If we only get one breath to lose.

I choose you.
I choose you.
I choose you.
If we only get one breath to lose
I choose you.

Two pairs on a silver cross
Don’t know how it got so lost.
Whatever happened to innocence?

There’s a sheet of a thirsty love.
That you never thought could ever get to us.
Our kiss was covered in ignorance.

There’s a place hiding underneath the blame
Where we know we never stopped believing
Don’t stop beating now

Curse me out
And knock me down
Stop the clock
And take us back where we were found.

If we only get one love.
If we only get one chance.
If we only get one heart to bruise.

If we only get one fight.
If we only get one life.
If we only get one breath to lose.

I choose you.
I choose you.
I choose you.
If we only get one breath to lose
I choose you.

You can fall behind,
I’ll be there beside you.
Leave your doubts outside
And I’ll crawl inside you.

You can fall behind,
I will fall behind you.
You can fall, fall, fall
(You can fall)

One love.
If we only get one chance.
If we only get one heart to bruise.

(You can fall)
If we only get one fight.
If we only get one life.
If we only get one breath to lose.

I choose you.
I choose you.
I choose you.
I choose you
