It’s cold outside but babe I’m here tonight

So cry and try to hold on for dear life

 

Your trust was set to let down every wall

So bare it all and risk a distant fall

 

Would you fall into my arms?

What could ever be the harm?

Would you open up the door?

And let me come inside some more

All I want is for you to be

Happy so you’re finally free

From every drama thrown your way

I want to calm all your dismay

 

Tears will trickle through my fractured heart

And an arid remnant will remain

 

Would you say that I’m to blame?

For the mess that you endure

Would you say that I’m insane?

For the way I want you more

And would you live tomorrow

In the lies of eyes gone blind

If you knew the things I do

Like what it takes to look at you

 

I’ll lend a heart and take you by the hand

I’ll be the one who understands

 

Would you say I love you too?

You know there's nothing I won't do

Would you say you feel the same?

I would change my life for you

But who's to say there's nothing

In the world worth more than the one you choose?

Who’s to say it's worth the time?

Who’s to say real love is blind?

 

I don't mind

If you look someday you'll find

Your own eyes and heart of truth

Staring blindly back at you

 

Would you say I love you dear?

You know there's nothing there to fear

Would you say you'll stick around?

So we can bask in love abound

But would you live a new day

In the lies of eyes gone blind

If you knew that things were gone

And had no strength to carry on

 

You lull my heart

You break it apart

You rack my brain

You make me sane

You lull my heart

You break it apart

You rack my brain

You make me sane
