Well this is just a simple song to say what you done
I told you about others fears and the way they didn't run
The show must be start,
and you feel like an ocean in... warmed by the sun
When I was just nine years old
I swear that I dreamed
Your face on a football field and I kissed the...
Under my vest, apart form everything,... the heart in my chest

Chorus:
I know that things can really get rough when you go in love
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, complete like a stone
Could be that's nothing else in our lives so critical
As this little hope!

My life in an... boat,... on a cliff
You brought me a... and you give me a lift
... you tell me... and your breath is in the lungs...

Chorus:
I know that things can really get rough when you go in love
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, complete like a stone
Could be that's nothing else in our lives so critical
As this little hope!

Will this be a simple song to say what you've done
I told you about others' years and the way they...
The show must be start,
and you feel like an ocean in... warmed by the sun

... walking the miles to your house... in the dark
I made a... play for your heart... the spark
You were a charm in a chain that I stole specially for you
Love is such a delicate thing that we do, we're nothing to prove
Wish I ever knew!

    Well this is just a simple song to say what you done
    I told you about all those fears and away they did run
    You sure must be strong
    And you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun
    When i was just nine years old
    I swear that i dreamt
    Your face on a football field and a kiss that i kept
    Under my vest, apart from everything but the heart in my chest

    Chorus:
    I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
    Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, complete like a stone
    Could be there’s nothing else in our lives so critical
    As this little hope!

    My life in an upturned boat, marooned on a cliff
    You brought me a great big flood and you gave me a lift
    Girl, what a gift, you tell me with your tongue and your breath goes in the lungs, and we float above the rift

    Chorus:
    I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
    Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, complete like a stone
    Could be there’s nothing else in our lives so critical
    As this little hope!

    Well this will be a simple song to say what you done
    I told you about all those fears, and away they did run
    You sure must be strong
    And you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

    Remember walking a mile to your house, aglow in the dark
    I made a fumbling play for your heart, and the axe drove the spark
    You wore a charm on a chain that i stole especial for you
    Love's such a delicate thing that we do, with nothing to prove
    Which i never knew!

    Which i ever knew!
