took my guitar and i wrote for you don’t think i could do much better than this you asked me for it and so here it is (oh, come on, please) a song to celebrate our love love… maybe you never would have had the guts if i hadn’t been the one to move first but i’m so happy that i took the plunge now we can celebrate our love love…

the booze 04:12
the booze came to know you one night at a bar one beer, two beers, three beers you’re telling me the story of your life and i don’t really want to hear it i have only just met you as the booze sinks in the air becomes unbearable as the booze sinks in the air becomes unbearable in here came to hate you that night at the bar four beers, five beers, six beers i can’t stand it anymore so i left early that night and you stayed drinking your lonely glass as i walked away once the booze sunk in the air became unbearable once the booze sunk in the air became unbearable in there

once i was scared for you now i am scared of you is it ever going to be okay? i’m all torn up inside i’m thinking run and hide i never thought it would end this way millions of seconds right up to that moment of craziness i do not think i’ll be able to give it all up just yet out in the cold again wondering out loud again i owe it to you that i am back here called my friends for advice am i paying some price was it my fault that you disappeared millions of seconds right up to that moment of craziness i do not think i’ll be able to give it all up just yet

finally i understand what it’s like not to hold your hand finally i know how it feels heartbreak of mine won’t you leave me behind won’t you let me go on with my life? i will have to search skin deep for the shallow life i seek maybe it will take someone without a trace of innocence maybe it will just take a moment heartbreak of mine won’t you leave me behind won’t you let me go on with my life? i will have to search skin deep for the shallow life i seek
5.
there are things that i don’t know and i’m fine with it concepts i can’t even grasp it’s okay but there are things that i can’t bare others i just do not dare to ask you are you going to make me happy? are you going to make me angry? are you going to make me sorry? sorry there are things that i just don’t understand like what exactly were you after when you held my hand and there are things that i can’t bare others i just do not dare to ask you are you going to make me happy? are you going to make me angry? are you going to make me sorry? sorry
