  • The eyes go slowly when you close the door
    And you leave me here by myself
    How do I fill my days when I feel so sad
    That your warmth has gone away

    I bite my lip to stop the tears
    But the tears come anyway

    I like it when we're together
    I don't care if I'm selfish
    I want you to stay
    Everything, every single thing
    Everything I do
    I do because I love you

    I'm built to be alone you know
    I get anxious when I'm on my own
    No need to be opposite sides of doors
    No need to talk through walls

    I hate that hollow stomach feel
    When you turn and walk away

    I like it when we're together
    I don't care if I'm selfish
    I want you to stay
    Everything, every single thing
    Everything I do
    I do because I love you

    I like it when we're together
    I don't care if I'm selfish
    I want you to stay
    Everything, every single thing
    Everything I do
    I do because I love you

    I know I make you feel the guilt
    And my reasons are emotional
    But we can deal with all demons
    In their various appearance
    Let's remind ourselves how far we've come
    Let us look at how we really feel
    If we tear from each other
    Would we ever fall in love again
    Ever fall in love again

    I like it when we're together
    I like it when we're together

    I like it when we're together
    I don't care if I'm selfish
    I want you to stay
    Everything, every single thing
    Everything I do
    I do because I love you

    I like it when we're together
    I don't care if I'm selfish
    I want you to stay
    Everything, every single thing
    Everything I do
    I do because I love you

    I like it when we're together
    I like it when we're together
    I like it when we're together
    I like it when we're together
