  • I know that you like me
    And it's kinda frightenin'
    Standing here waitin' (waitin')
    And I became hypnotized
    By freckles and bright eyes
    Tongue tied

    But now (now)
    You're so far away and I'm down (down)
    Feelin' like a face in the crowd
    I'm reachin' for you, terrified

    'Cause you could be the one that I love
    I could be the one that you dream of
    A message in a bottle is all I can do
    Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you
    You could be the one that I keep, and I
    Could be the reason you can't sleep at night
    A message in a bottle is all I can do
    Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you

    These days I'm restless
    Work days are endless
    Look how you've made me (made me)
    But time moves faster
    Replaying your laughter
    Disaster

    'Cause now (now)
    You're so far away and I'm down (down)
    Feelin' like a face in the crowd
    I'm reachin' for you, terrified

    'Cause you could be the one that I love
    I could be the one that you dream of
    A message in a bottle is all I can do
    Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you (it gets to you)
    You could be the one that I keep, and I (I)
    Could be the reason you can't sleep at night
    A message in a bottle is all I can do
    Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you

    I know
    That you like me
    Fright
    Tongue tied
    I know
    That you like me
    Fright
    Tongue tied

    You could be the one that I love, mm-mm
    And now I'm standin' here, hopin' it gets to you

    'Cause you could be the one that I love (yeah, yeah)
    I could be the one that you dream of
    A message in a bottle is all I can do
    Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you (it gets to you)
    You could be the one that I keep, and I
    Could be the reason you can't sleep at night (I can't sleep at night)
    A message in a bottle is all I can do (yeah, yeah)
    Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you

    (Love)
    You could be the one that I love
    (Love)
    You could be the one that I love
    (Love) my love
    And now I'm standin' here, hopin' this gets to you Writer/s: Johan Karl Schuster, Martin Max Sandberg, Taylor Alison Swift
