  • I remember when I met you just before September
    You were dancing in the street rockin' that pink and leather
    Begged my friend for your number
    I bet you don't remember that's how we began
    I pursued you for a year, I would've waited longer
    I knew ultimately it would make the feelings stronger
    That first time that I kissed you
    I could look in the mirror and like who I was (I liked who I was)

    I could never wait for the weekends when you would come over
    'Cause that's when I'd see you again
    You're all my strength and my weakness
    You battle my demons, you're still undefeated

    Sometimes I get a little bit jaded
    Too much pressure just to make it
    You smile when I'm angry and I hate it
    But I'll still love you for the rest of my life
    And my crush on you has never faded
    Let's go back to bed until we break it
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life

    Ooh, if you wanted to
    I'd start a family with you

    I remember bein' foolish when I met your mother
    Because she had that Irish charm right then I knew I'd love her
    That's where you got your heart
    When we got back to the car I knew you were the one (I knew you were the one)

    I could never wait for the weekends when you would come over
    'Cause that's when I'd see you again
    You're all my strength and my weakness
    You battle my demons, you're still undefeated

    Sometimes I get a little bit jaded
    Too much pressure just to make it
    You smile when I'm angry and I hate it
    But I'll still love you for the rest of my life
    And my crush on you has never faded
    Let's go back to bed until we break it
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life

    Ooh, if you wanted to
    I'd start a family with you
    Ooh, if you wanted to
    I'd start a family with you

    Sometimes I get a little bit jaded
    Too much pressure just to make it
    You smile when I'm angry and I hate it
    But I'll still love you for the rest of my life
    And my crush on you has never faded
    Let's go back to bed until we break it
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life

    Ooh, if you wanted to
    I'd start a family with you
    Ooh, if you wanted to
    I'd start a family with you
