  • I was in the darkness waiting to be found
    My heart was locked away and beaten to the ground
    Tried to find my way but there was no way out
    But when you're close to me whenever you're around

    You take the pain away, you make it worth the wait
    And I pray that I will have you in my life always
    And when my hope is gone you make me keep the faith

    I guess what I'm tryna say
    Baby, you got me falling uncontrollably in love
    Never felt this way
    Got my heart, my soul but, baby, that just isn't enough

    Hey, I wanna give you my name, my name, my name
    Hey, I wanna give you my name, my name, my name
    I wanna give you my

    My everything and all that I possess
    'Cause you deserve to be offered nothing less
    You know, I'm there for you like you've been there for me
    But whenever I'm without you, girl, I find it hard to breathe

    You take the pain away, you make it worth the wait
    I was broken but you came along and mended me
    Now that my hope's restored and I can keep the faith

    All I gotta say is
    Baby, you got me falling uncontrollably in love
    Never felt this way
    Got my heart, my soul but, baby, that just isn't enough

    Hey, I wanna give you my name, my name, my name
    Hey, I wanna give you my name, my name, my name
    I wanna give you my

    You take the pain away
    You make it worth the wait
    You take the pain away
    You make it worth the wait

    Baby, you got me falling uncontrollably in love
    Never felt this way
    Got my heart, my soul but, baby, that just isn't enough

    Hey, I wanna give you my name, my name, my name
    Hey, I wanna give you my name, my name, my name
    I wanna give you my Writer/s: ANTHONY HANNIDES, ANTHONY MCLEAN, MICHAEL HANNIDES
