Knocking On Your Heart

Album: Single release only (2015)
  • Nothing makes it hard to breathe
    Like being in your company
    When you've got someone new around your arms
    I thought I'd be over it
    To see you lock with other lips
    I guess I'm just no good at moving on

    I always tried to tell myself
    That I'd fall in love with someone else
    But, oh, my stubborn heart is set on you
    And every night I fall asleep
    Just so I can see you in my dreams
    And now I think you ought to know the truth

    Are you listening?
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?
    Tell me I'm the one and I've always been
    'Cause I don't wanna wonder if we'll ever meet again
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?

    When you left I made you swear
    Our love would last no matter where
    And we would call each other every night
    But nights turned into weeks, turned into months
    We didn't speak
    And so we lost our sense of love over time

    I always tried to tell myself
    That I'd fall in love with someone else
    But, oh, my stubborn heart is set on you
    And every night I fall asleep
    Just so I can see you in my dreams
    And now I think you ought to know the truth

    Are you listening?
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?
    Tell me I'm the one and I've always been
    'Cause I don't wanna wonder if we'll ever meet again
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?

    Are you listening?
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?
    Tell me I'm the one and I've always been
    'Cause I don't wanna wonder if we'll ever meet again
    I'm knocking on your heart. Could you let me in?
