As I lie awake alone in my bed

Thoughts of you are all I see in my head

Since we met I’ve been a captive heart

I’ve been in love from the very start

And I wonder if you could love me

I’ve just got to know


Here I am, a man alone in the night

In the darkness waiting for the light

But the light I’m waiting for isn’t day

I need you to make my dark go away

You’ve such beauty in your eyes

Outside and within


You are the one thing that I desire

Thoughts of you set my heart on fire

And if you should fall for some other guy

Well then I know that I’d surely die

I’d surely die

I’d surely die without you
