Lyrics


You should've seen by the look in my eyes, baby

There was something missin'

You should've known by the tone of my voice, maybe

But you didn't listen


You played dead

But you never bled

Instead you lay still in the grass

All coiled up and hissin'


And though I know all about those men

Still I don't remember

'Cause it was us baby, way before them

And we're still together


And I meant every word I said

When I said that I love you

I meant that I love you forever


And I'm gonna keep on lovin' you

Cause it's the only thing I wanna do

I don't wanna sleep

I just wanna keep on lovin' you


And I meant every word I said

When I said that I love you

I meant that I love you forever


And I'm gonna keep on lovin' you

Cause it's the only thing I wanna do

I don't wanna sleep

I just wanna keep on lovin' you


Baby, I'm gonna keep on lovin' you

Cause it's the only thing I wanna do

I don't wanna sleep

I just wanna keep on lovin' you
