Lyrics

Everytime I hear about you going back to him, I break, I am breaking
I don't even care, no I don't care at all
So why am I shaking?

You could say no.
Even when I say please.
Just don't let me go.
I am down on knees.

You are just a dream, in the back of my head, you're there and we are sailing.
Floating like a boat on the ocean blue.
and the gulls they are wailing

And we can make out or lay 'neath the trees.
Let go of your doubt.
I am down on my knees.

Oh and you had faith in love back then. I know what went wrong it won't happen again. You know it too, I can tell by your eyes. Yeah I could always tell by your eyes.

There is reason for your fear.
But if you lend me your keys.
I will make it all clear.
I am down on my knees.
I am down on my knees.
