You Give Me Something

Album: Undiscovered (2006)
Charted: 5
  • You want to stay with me in the morning
    You only hold me when I sleep,
    I was meant to tread the water
    Now I've gotten in too deep,
    For every piece of me that wants you
    Another piece backs away.

    'Cause you give me something
    That makes me scared, alright,
    This could be nothing
    But I'm willing to give it a try,
    Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might know my heart.

    You already waited up for hours
    Just to spend a little time alone with me,
    And I can say I've never bought you flowers
    I can't work out what the mean,
    I never thought that I'd love someone,
    That was someone else's dream.

    'Cause you give me something
    That makes me scared, alright,
    This could be nothing
    But I'm willing to give it a try,
    Please give me something,
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart,
    But it might me a second too late,
    And the words I could never say
    Gonna come out anyway.

    'Cause you give me something
    That makes me scared, alright,
    This could be nothing
    But I'm willing to give it a try,

    Please give me something,
    'Cause you give me something
    That makes me scared, alright,
    This could be nothing

    But I'm willing to give it a try,
    Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might know my heart.
