  • Lyrics
  • We were looking for love in all the same places
    Infected with the same disease
    In a room full of cats with handsome faces
    You couldn't find a moment to see

    I always wanted you to notice me, to notice me
    I guess that's just the way it goes
    I was looking for the answer
    When all the time it was right here under my nose

    For as long as you love me
    You don't have to do the things I do, yeah
    As long as you love me
    You don't always have to be so cruel
    As long as you love me
    We don't have to be together 24/7
    As long as you love me
    I'm in heaven

    We were looking for love, hearts trailing in our wake
    Took any love that we could get
    Sure, it wasn't easy
    But you know you gotta take your chance no matter who you upset

    Tell me, baby, did I peak your curiosity?
    I don't know if I disappoint
    You were looking for the answer
    When all the time it was right here under your nose

    But as long as you love me
    You don't have to do the things I do, yeah
    As long as you love me
    You don't always have to be so cruel
    As long as you love me
    We don't have to be together 24/7
    As long as you love me
    I'm in heaven, woah

    You will never have a reason to tell me that we're through
    I will never ask you not to do what you wanna do
    Even if you never show me what I mean to you

    Yeah

    And as long as you love me
    You don't have to do the things I do, yeah
    As long as you love me
    You don't always have to be so cruel, hey
    As long as you love me
    We don't have to be together 24/7
    As long as you love me
    I'm in heaven, hey

    As long as you love me
    I'm in heavenWriter/s: Justin David Hawkins
