In every letter you write, And every word you say, You shine onto me a new light, And fight all the darkness away. And every time you break down, And every kiss you give, I'm reminded of all that's at stake, And all that we have to live for.
My heart is an open box, For you to fill up, With letters and broken clocks, So we forget the time. And I try to forget the world, That we reside in, By singing about the girl, Who lives beneath my skin.
In every smile you bring, And every heartbeat you steal, You give me new songs to sing, And show me new ways to feel. And every moment you're gone, And every time I'm away, I feel my mind come undone, And I struggle with words to say that...
My heart is an open book, For you to write in, Stories of thieves and crooks, Who stole people's hearts. And I try to forget the world, That we reside in, By singing about the girl, Who lives beneath my skin.
