Unless It's With You

  • Never wanted to feel weak in love, give up control
    Never wanted to let down my guard, be vulnerable
    Never wanted to feel helpless or too comfortable
    I make it on my own, hey

    I've been thinking a lot about the way that people change
    The most beautiful beginnings can go down in flames
    It's inevitable, and that's what's got me so afraid
    I'd rather be alone

    I don't want no white picket fence
    Dozen roses and a wedding dress
    Fairy tales are fake happiness
    But here we are and I must confess

    Yeah, I'm in over my head feeling confused
    I'm losing my mind, don't know what to do
    'Cause I don't want to get married
    Unless it's with you, unless it's with you

    You came into my life when I wasn't trying to find
    Anybody to love, hiding what I felt inside
    But you opened me up and now I finally realize
    I'll be your girl for life

    We don't need a big audience
    Thousand people we never met
    Me and you and a couple of friends
    And here we are and I must confess

    Yeah, I'm in over my head feeling confused
    I'm losing my mind, don't know what to do
    'Cause I don't want to get married
    Unless it's with you, unless it's with you

    And oh, I know that it's scary
    But I know that it's true, I'm saying "I do"
    'Cause I don't want to get married
    Unless it's with you, unless it's with you

    Beating heart and trembling hands
    Take me just the way I am
    'Cause all that I want is one and the same
    For the rest of my days, for the rest of my days

    You can ask me in a hundred years
    If I would still be standing here
    When we're old and gray, I'd answer the same
    Our love will remain, oh, our love will remain

    Yeah, I was over my head feeling confused
    Been losing my mind, don't know what to do
    'Cause I don't want to get married
    Unless it's with you, unless it's with you

    And oh, I know it's scary
    (I know that it's true, I'm saying "I do")
    'Cause I don't want to get married
    Unless it's with you, unless it's with you, hey, ooh, yeah
    Unless it's with you, you Writer/s: Christina Aguilera, Eric Frederic, Erik Hassle, Gamal Lewis, Teddy Gieger, Tom Peyton
