Say, won't you stay; we can talk about nothing at all
Or sit here and make up the words as we go along

The games, we could play
Maybe silently write us a song
Quietly shout from the roof that we don't belong

They told me maybe she's crazy a little like you
Everyone said you were nothing but trouble and
All that I know is that I've never been here before
And no, I'll never leave, if it's alright with you
Dreaming of oceans while jumping in puddles and
All of my life I pretend you where there by the door
I don't need to pretend any more.

Strange, oh so strange
When it feels better being alone
You accept there is nobody else and set it in stone
And then you, came along
Your reflection was so sad and strong
You made me believe once again that I could be wrong.

They told me maybe she's crazy a little like you
Everyone said you were nothing but trouble and
All that I know is that I've never been here before
And no, I'll never leave, if it's alright with you
Dreaming of oceans while jumping in puddles and
All of my life I pretend you where there by the door
I don't need to pretend any more.

And it hurts, to know, there was somebody out there as strange and
As beautiful, as you
If I'd known sooner

Maybe she's crazy a little like you
Everyone said you were nothing but trouble
All that I know is that I've never been here before
And no, I'll never leave, if it's alright with you
Dreaming of oceans while jumping in puddles and
All of my life I pretend you where there by the door
I don't need to pretend any more.

I don't need to pretend anymore
I don't need to pretend anymore

    Its a song about the surprises love brings our way. He/she comes along when we least expect it and when he/she arrives we stop pretending. We embark on uncharted waters cause he/she is worth the risk.
