Every Little Thing

Every little thing.

Every little fling.

Makes me think of you.

Only you.

And you know it’s true.

Baby.

 

We living like we made of fire.

We walkin’ ten feet higher.

We thought we could perspire.

Our love.

This fate.

Knowing you weren’t my mistake.

But no,

We can have it all.

Even if it’s small.

You thought you’d break this wall.

But you never got the call.

So, come on now,

I knew you were the one when I thought I couldn’t get it.

I knew you were the one when I thought we wouldn’t fit it.

I knew you were the one even when I didn’t hit it.

I knew you were the one, although it’s hard to admit it.

I knew you were the one when I thought we’d have it all.

I knew you were the one who would answer the call.

I knew you were the one who would catch me if I fall.

You knew you were the one who deserved to take it all.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t make decisions.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t have the vision.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t take precision.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t fix the past. (Oh.)

 

Every little thing.

All the hurt it’ll bring.

Makes me think of you.

Only you.

And you know it’s true.

Every little thing. (Every little thing.)

And the diamond ring. (And the diamond ring.)

Makes me think you.

Only you.

And you know it’s true.

Baby,

 

I knew we couldn’t last even if we had the chance.

I knew we couldn’t last if I put you in a trance.

I knew we couldn’t last when you gave me your annoyed glance.

I knew we couldn’t last without any romance. (No.)

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t make decisions.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t have the vision.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t take precision.

We knew it wouldn’t last if we didn’t fix the past. (Oh.)

I knew you didn’t care when you forced the big apologies.

I knew you didn’t care when you told me you’d clobber me.

I knew you didn’t care when you told me you’d forgotten me.

I knew you didn’t care when I told you to say sorry to me...

 

To me...

To me…

To me…

 

To me...

And we...

Are made to be…

So let’s count to three…

And breathe…

 

We…

Will do what’s right…

We’ll own the night…

And they will see…

That we…

 

Love…

We hadn’t made…

A sharpen blade…

Tonight we raid…

Afraid...

 

Love knows we’ll find our way out. (Love knows.)

I know that we’ll never find doubt. (Find doubt.)

You know what I’m talking about.

Drop-out.

Of life, when we never know what’s coming.

Go about that life, when you know what you’re becoming.

Go and live that life, and the voices get to humming.

Go and have that life, until the light is overcoming.

You may never know.

When your heart begins to go.

When our love begins to blow.

It’ll show.

 

It may look like it would break me.

It may look like you should hate me.

It may look like it would make me.

But not today.

I stay.

I know my mother up there, would be so proud of me.

I know my mother up there, would be so quick to shroud me.

I know my mother up there, would say aloud,

“Go ahead now, and go make me proud.”

 

Love.

Is what we share.

But do you care?

I had it enough.

Of this.

Of you.

 

Every little thing.

All the hurt it’ll bring. (All the hurt it’ll bring.)

Makes me think of you. (Makes me think of you.)

Only you. (Only you.)

And you know it’s true.

Every little thing. (Every little thing.)

And the diamond ring. (And the diamond ring.)

Makes me think you. (Makes me think of you.)

Only you. (Only you.)

And you know it’s true.

Baby.
