    Everything he does, better than anything ordinary
    Everything he wants he gets
    Cause everything he gets is kinda necessary
    I believe in love
    Tell me can anything last forever
    Life can live up to love
    Got a hand on my heart gonna stay in heaven

    [Chorus]
    You're gonna make me, make me love you
    Nothing at all, nothing that I do
    Promise I made, promise I made
    Started to fade, started to fade, Babe
    You're gonna make me, make me love you
    Nothing at all, nothing that I do
    Promise I made, promise I made
    Started to fade, started to fade, Babe

    Maybe next time I will take the right on by
    I wanna feel you near

    'Cause I can't play this like, I'm in too well
    My letter stamp is down, and I gotta fear
    Oh baby right here

    Giving up to looking into windows,
    Yeah I've enough of wishing I've found you
    Baby don't you know
    I've had as much as I can take of falling, yeah
    Got a lot to learn about riding through

    [Chorus]

    Here I am, walking primrose
    Wondering when I'm gonna see you again
    So here I am, walking primrose
    Wondering when I'm gonna see you again

    I got my hands all ready to touch your soul
    I'm gonna get the energy to wind me close to you
    Got my eyes on the prize
    Are you watching me baby?

    'Cause my heart is turning to solid gold
    And my head is saying honey too good to be true
    Oh one look into your glitter eyes
    How else telling me every time

    [Chorus)]

    Maybe it's not that hard to know you
    Maybe we'll make it up and go
    Maybe we'll work things out
    Cause there's only one way up and one way down I know

    If you wanna convince me start again
    If you wanna be with me in my arms

    [Chorus] Writer/s: Timothy Martin Powell, Carla Maria Williams, Nick Coler, Kieran Rhys Jones, Jason Peter Resch, Brian Thomas Higgins, Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune Cooper
