  • I want to write you a song
    One that's beautiful as you are sweet
    With just a hint of pain
    For the feeling that I get when you are gone
    I want to write you a song

    I want to lend you my coat
    One that's as soft as your cheek
    So when the world is cold
    You'll have a hiding place you can go
    I want to lend you my coat

    Everything I need I get from you
    Givin' back is all I wanna do

    I want to build you a boat
    One that's strong as you are free
    So any time you think that your heart is gonna sink
    You know it won't
    I want to build you a boat

    Everything I need I get from you
    Givin' back is all I wanna do

    Everything I need I get from you
    Givin' back is all I wanna do

    I want to write you a song
    One to make your heart remember me
    So any time I'm gone
    You can listen to my voice and sing along
    I want to write you a song
    I want to write you a song Writer/s: Ammar Malik, John Henry Ryan, Julian C. Bunetta
