  • Well I cant give you everything you want
    But I could give you what you thought you need
    A map to keep beneath your seat
    You'll read to me in time I'll get you there
    But fold it up so we don't find our way back soon
    Nobody knows we're here

    We can park the van and walk to town
    Find the cheapest bottle of wine that we could find
    And talk about the road behind
    How getting lost is not a waste of time
    Le Bois d'Amour will take us home
    And in a moment we will sing as the forest sleeps

    It's all for the sake of arriving with you
    Well, it's all for the sake of arriving with you

    Well, I will make the table into a bed
    The candle is burning down it's time to rest
    Can't take back things already gone
    But I could give you promises for keeps
    And I would only take them back
    If they become your own and you give them to me

    And it's all for the sake of arriving with you
    Well, it's all for the sake of arriving with you

    We could make this into anything
    We could make this into more than words we speak
    This could make us into anything
    It could make us grow and become what we'll be, mm

    It's just like it feels
    It's just like it feels, mm

    How can we will know?
    It's just like it feels
    It's just like it feels
    It's just like it feels
    How does it feel?
    It's just like it feels
    It's just like it feels
    How does it feel?
    It's just like it feels
    How does it feel? Writer/s: Jack Hody Johnson

  • Andrea from Sønderborg, DenmarkWauw, he must really love his wife. Or he's just a very good songwriter. Both things are true, I guess. Is it just me, or does it make him even cuter, knowing he's so in love with her?
