  • I can feel her breath
    As she's sleeping next to me
    Sharing pillows and cold feet
    She can feel my heart
    Fell asleep to its beat
    Under blankets and warm sheets
    If only I could be in that bed again
    If only it were me instead of him

    Does he watch your favorite movies?
    Does he hold you when you cry?
    Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts
    When you've seen it a million times?
    Does he sing to all your music
    While you dance to Purple Rain?
    Does he do all these things
    Like I used to?

    Fourteen months and seven days ago
    Oh, I know you know
    How we felt about that night
    Just your skin against the window
    Oh we took it slow
    And we both know
    It should have been me inside that car
    It should have been me instead of him in the dark

    Does he watch your favorite movies?
    Does he hold you when you cry?
    Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts
    When you've seen it a million times?
    Does he sing to all your music
    While you dance to Purple Rain?
    Does he do all these things
    Like I used to?

    I know love
    (I'm a sucker for that feeling)
    Happens all the time, love
    (I always end up feeling cheated)
    You're on my mind, love
    (Oh darling, I know I'm not needed)
    It happens all the time, love, yeah

    Will he love you like I loved you?
    Will he tell you every day?
    Will he make you feel like you're invincible
    With every word he'll say?
    Can you promise me if this was right,
    Don't throw it all away?
    Can you do all these things?
    Will you do all these things
    Like we used to?

    Oh, like we used to Writer/s: ANDREW COOK, ANDREW STEPHEN COOK, DAN YOUNG, ERIC HALVORSEN, JUSTIN RICHARDS, JUSTIN MARK RICHARDS, LOREN BRINTON, NICHOLAS SANTINO
