Hold You

from Life's Fairytale by Color Theory



To hold you, love you
See your smile at the break of day
To touch you, know you
Want you by me when you’re far away

It’s easy to say, but hard to do
When you’re in love with some foolish child
And everybody just can’t understand
They say, “See him, watch him,
He will change his mind.”

But I see you want him
You’re always with him when the lights go down
You need him, love him
Promises he’ll always stay around

It’s easy for me when the daylight’s here
It’s easy to be happy when I’m in the crowd
But maybe someday I could take his place
I want you, need you
I won’t change my mind

But he holds you, loves you
He has you with him at the break of day
He’ll touch you, know you
Wants you by him though you’re far away

If all these things you say are true
There’s just one thing I need to know
Is this love or lies?
Just a flame or a fire?
There’s something I need
And only you can help

To hold you, love you
Have you with me when the lights go down
To see you, need you
Promise me you’ll always stay around.
