  • You should've known I love you
    But I'll never say it too much
    Maybe you did turn to get me
    Maybe I'll never know what I've done

    Now I'm lost in the distance
    You look at me like a stranger
    Cause how it looks right now to me
    If you're scared of the danger

    I could've shown you America
    All the bright lights in the universe
    We could have reached the highest heights
    A different place, a different life
    Remember that night underneath the stars
    For a minute I thought the world was ours
    All you had to do was show me love

    Yeah it's true you know, we're not perfect
    There's a fire inside of me
    It means I'll fight for the things that are worth it
    If it makes me feel complete
    'Cause I'm hitting rocks, and I'm taking shots
    I'm prepared to lose everything I've got

    Now I'm lost in the distance
    You look at me like a stranger
    'Cause how it looks right now to me
    Nothing can save us

    I could've shown you America
    All the bright lights in the universe
    We could've reached the highest heights
    A different place, a different life
    Remember that night the underneath the stars
    For a minute I thought the world was ours
    All you had to do was show me love

    Show me love, love
    Show me love, love
    Show me love, love (show me, show me love)
    Show me love, love (show me, show me love)
    Show me love, love
    Show me love, love (yeah)

    I could've shown you America
    All the bright lights in the universe
    We could've reached the highest heights
    A different place, a different life
    Remember that night underneath the stars
    For a minute I thought the world was ours
    All you had to do was show me love

    All you had to do was show me love Writer/s: MICH HANSEN, KASPER LARSEN, OLE BRODERSEN, TIM WOODCOCK, NATHAN SYKES
