  • All I wanna be, is with you
    In your arms, in our room
    Living small, in a big house
    I've been having dreams
    Have you had them too?

    I see me and you
    By the door
    Rushing in from the rain
    At the back of the garden
    Do you see that too?

    Forever ain't forever if we're not together
    I don't wanna put a load of pressure on you
    I just wanna tell you, I just wanna tell you
    Without you I don't know what I'd do

    I've only got one life
    And I want you in it, oh
    Tell me that you'll never let me go
    Or bury my body
    Or send it down the river, oh
    I could never do it on my own

    Sometimes I get sad
    At the front, at the back
    In the middle of the happiest moments
    'Cause good things can go bad
    Easily

    So I don't wanna slow down
    Wanna jump, wanna fly, wanna fall
    I wanna hit the ground running
    Do you wanna marry me?

    I've only got one life
    And I want you in it, oh
    Tell me that you'll never let me go (never let me go)
    Or bury my body
    Or send it down the river, oh
    I could never do it on my own (do it on my own)

    No, life ain't a life, ain't a life, ain't a life
    Without you
    No, life ain't a life, ain't a life, ain't a life
    Alone

    Forever ain't forever if we're not together
    I don't wanna put a load of pressure on you
    I just wanna tell you, I just wanna tell you
    Without you I don't know what I'd do

    We only get one try
    I don't wanna miss it, oh
    Tell me that you'll never let me go

    I've only got one life (I've only got one life)
    And I want you in it, oh (I don't wanna miss it)
    Tell me that you'll never let me go (I don't wanna do it without you, no)
    Or bury my body
    Or send it down the river, oh (or send it down the river)
    I could never do it on my own ('cause I could never do this on my own)

    No, life ain't a life, ain't a life, ain't a life
    Without you (oh, it ain't a life without you)
    No, life ain't a life, ain't a life, ain't a life
    Alone

    Whoa, life ain't a life, ain't a life, ain't a life
    Without you, oh
    I could never do this on my own Writer/s: Bianca Ghermezian, Ethan Gruska, James Bay, Matt Morris, Stephen Paul Robson, Stephen Samuel Wrabel
