  • Would you walk to the edge of the ocean?
    Just to fill my jar with sand?
    Just in case I get the notion,
    To let it run through my hands.
    Let it run through my hands.

    I don't want the whole world,
    The sun, the moon and all their light.
    I just wanna be the only girl,
    You love all your life.
    You love all your life.

    Would you catch a couple thousand fireflies?
    Yeah, and put 'em in a lamp to light my world.
    All dressed up in a tux and bowtie.
    Hand Delivered to a lonely girl.
    To a lonely lonely girl

    I don't want the whole world,
    The sun, the moon and all their light.
    I just wanna be the only girl,
    You love all your life.
    You love all your life

    Lately I've been writing desperate love songs.
    I mostly sing them to the wall.
    You could be the center piece of my obsession
    If you would notice me,
    Yeah, ooh yeah

    Well I don't want the whole world, no
    The sun, the moon and all their light.
    I just wanna be the only girl,
    You love all your life.
    You love all your life

    You love all your life, life, yeah. Writer/s: BRIAN HENNINGSEN, CLARA HENNINGSEN

  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is really a nice song to listen to. Love the lyrics: "I don't want the world. The sun, the moon and all their light. I just wanna be the only girl...you love all your life." Kimberly Perry sings the words in a beautiful, unusual way. This song is much better than their song "If I Die Young".
