I To You

  • Our love had a stench,
    Even if you didn't ask,
    I would never say a word about it.
    Now I stay home with the kids,
    Everyday cleaning up where you live,
    Even though I'm educated

    'Cause you are great, you are big,
    And I don't mind giving in, giving in,
    For free, for free
    You are love, you are sin,
    You'll always be everything, everything,
    To me, to me

    What am I to you?
    What am I to you?
    Don't tell me, don't kill me now.
    What am I to you?
    What am I to you?
    Just keep me, and I won't make a sound.

    Wouldn't tell anyone about your fears,
    'Bout your friends, 'bout the life that I miss
    'Cause to me you are the greatest.
    I would run, I would jump, I would fall,
    Just to make sure baby's got it all,
    But to them I can't explain it.

    You are great, you are big
    And I don't mind giving in, giving in
    For free, for free.
    You are love, you are sin
    You'll always be everything, everything
    To me, to me.

    Oh,
    What am I to you?
    What am I to you?
    Don't tell me, don't kill me now.
    What am I to you?
    What am I to you?
    Just keep me, and I won't make a sound.

    What am I to you?
    What am I to you?
    Just kiss me as you lay me down,
    What am I to you?
    What am I to you?
    Don't tell me, don't kill me now.
    Don't kill me now. Writer/s: CHRIS CROWHURST, EMELI SANDE
