Hey there, you.
Do you know, what do you know?

And there you,
Don't you know, don't you know?

When the skies are gray,
and everything's fading away
When your world seems mean and cold
Who you love, will show themselves... I'm Told.
That's what I've been told
That's what... I'm told.

So there you, want you know
I want you to know

And there you, just know
That I've got you.

Cause when the skies are gray
And everything's fading away
When your world seems mean and cold
Who you love, will show themselves... I'm Told.

That's what I'm told,
That's what I've been told.
That's what I'm told.

I'm Told

I can talk about the time Romeo met Juliet,
Oh boy did that go wrong!
But then I think of the time with you me and the evening sunset
Was that any better, than the old tragic love song?

Knopfler was right, the timing was wrong
But that's not all it was, was it?
I get your fear of the unknown,
Of the power it holds

And we had one night, just one
Maybe it's for the best.
But we'll have a life, waiting ahead,
If you decide I'm worth facing the fear, taking that test.

Oh boy, I can sing, and sing all day
Keep thinkin’ of you and me and what we’re throwin’ away
Hate on the timing, that’s always wrong
Wait on the day, the Good Lord helps me finish this song

And we had one night, just one
Maybe it's for the best.
I’m not the kind who’d tempt and lure you with bait
I don’t buy the deal with stars, but I’d rather leave this to fate

Oh boy, I can sing, and sing all day
Keep thinkin’ of you and me and what we’re throwin’ away
Hate on the timing, that’s always wrong
Wait on the day, the Good Lord helps me finish this song

Knopfler and Clapton and all those great men,
Wrote songs for us, and we failed to listen
The Classics they’re beyond us,
Time wins the war, again.

Oh boy, I will sing, until It’s done.
Keep thinkin’ of you and me and what we’re throwin’ away
Hate on the timing, that’s always wrong
Wait on the day, the Good Lord helps me finish this song

Finish our song

I didn't know her, I didn't even want to
So you can imagine I never thought
She'd steal my heart, she'd make me want to
Laugh a little louder, smile a little wider
Live a little better, Cry when I'm without her

She had me at hello,
Just that I didn't know, I had her too
those years were the best,
I can't pen down the magic she brings to the table

So you can imagine, to see you with her
I envy each smile and laugh you laugh
And I hope you'd be half as good as I was

She deserves her space, so you better give her some
And tell her you love her, and give her your shoulder
Hold her tight, push to the limit and never let go
Always tell her she's worth more, more than she knows

She's my girl, the queen of the world
I hope you know what you've got
Cause you won't want to lose love like this ever
I wish you the best my friend,
I wish for her, someone ever better (than I was)

Take her out, buy her presents
fix her breakfast to have for lunch, don't be counting cents
you should know she won't ask for the chocolate milk
But give it to her, she'll gulp it down in a wink

So you can imagine, to see you with her
I envy each smile and laugh you laugh
And I hope you'd be better than I ever was, (and boy, I was good.)

She's my girl, she's the queen of the world
I hope you know what you've got
Cause you won't want to lose love like this ever
I wish you the best my friend,
I wish for her better, than I was ever.

Wake her up in the morn,
with a kiss and cup of coffee,
smile at her lovingly, while she cries she hates it
You know she needs it

She's my girl, she's the queen of the world
I hope you know what you've got
Cause you won't want to lose love like this ever
I wish you the best my friend,
I wish for her even better than I ever was.

Better Than I was

Better Than I was

know it's easy to cry, and why not
I know you'd rather just say goodbye
And I know they say it's okay, and it is
But trust me babe, it pays to stay

Wait it out, but don't hold it in
You have one shoulder and that's
For all strength you can draw in
And You'd hate me for letting you quit today

Don't walk away, I know it hurts to stay
Face the pain; grow up for once
Don't waste it all in vain
No don't waste it all in vain.

When you look back on yesterday
My heart fills with pride at the path you tread
And just for that, I say today
Trust me babe, it pays to stay

And trouble will leave you, cause you've got the upper hand
And the light will find you, without you having to do the same old dance.

So, Don't walk away even if it hurts to stay
Face the gain ; Grow up for once
Don't waste it all in vain
No Don't waste it all away.

Don't walk away
