Sometimes, all I think about is you

You can’t fight it, you can’t breathe
You say somethin’ so lovin’, but

You’ll be better off in someone new
I don’t wanna be alone
You know it hurts me too
You look so broken when you cry
One more and then I’ll say goodbye

For the warning signs I’ve completely ignored
There’s an amount to take, reasons to take more

I just wanna make you mine

Girl, I got a deal
You could be my girl if I could be your world

Flowers for the sick and dead
