Lyrics

- CONVERSATION AT A FUENERAL -
(sample from the movie 'The Five People You Meet In Heaven')
Priest: "How old was the deceased?"
Friend: "I don't know."
Priest: "What can you tell me about him?"
Friend: "You mean about what he was like? ... He was great.  He'd do little things for you sometimes, help you out."
Priest: "How about personally?"
Friend: "Personally, ... I know that he loved his wife very much."

Let's get lost on the beach and leave our prints in the sand/
and talk about life together with these rings on our hands/
remember how we got here, all the things in the past/
make the most out of today, I just wish it could/
last but tomorrow isn't promised, so it's pointless to wish for/
I don't want the fast life, I want to slow it a bit more/
keep it real simple, find beauty in the small stuff/
staying cool in the heat, smoothies in a tall cup/
I'm not a rich man spending money ludicrous/
but I'll cook dinner while you rent a couple movies quick/
and we can feed the dog under the table/
good conversation now and get comfortable later/
until I ask you again, "what are you doing with me?"/
and you tell me I'm the one, and you're as cool as can be/
and that you're not going anywhere, not moving your feet/
it's you and it's me, my sweet beautiful V/

- HOOK -
You've given me the balance that I needed bad/
Now I believe in magic cuz I see it happen/
You make me feel like I was born to do great/
Everyday I'll appreciate you before it's too late/

- VERSE -
It's like a whole 'nother level of clarity since you married me/
I asked you and apparently a life with me is where you see/
yourself, ... in health and in sickness/
trying to ask myself for forgiveness for the wealth and the riches/
not being ours, so let's get down to business/
I see a storm coming, whip the tent out and pitch it/
when some company is needed, pay a friend's house a visit/
family keeps us together like ten thousand stitches/
we're both scarred in one way or in another/
used to be so simple saying prayers with my mother/
didn't think that I was ready, I was scared that I loved you/
and now we're taking care of the Bear's little brother/
I hope we're there for each other 'til the end is getting near/
road trips to New York, walking Strawberry Fields/
you can tell me anything, I'm not afraid to lend an ear/
before it's too late, I need to make this very clear/

- HOOK -
You've given me the balance that I needed bad/
Now I believe in magic cuz I see it happen/
You make me feel like I was born to do great/
Everyday I'll appreciate you before it's too late/

I'd be too lost on my own to foster this home/
In the dark and the cold without a heart and a sou/
You make me feel like I was born to to great/
Everyday I'll appreciate you before it's too late/

- VERSE -
There's so much to tell you and there's never enough time/
to put exactly how I feel together in one rhyme/
there's never gonna be enough space on a page/
for me to tell you how I'm ever more grateful today/
to come home to a smile that can light up the room/
and make space in my bed right beside me for you/
and all the other little things we tend to take for granted/
because the little things in life are what create the magic/
it's never gonna be perfect, but then I'm thankful that it's.../
...you that gets me through all the days of sadness/
we're in a world so cold full of crazy madness/
that's why we try to spread love, keep the equation balanced/
so I can look at my son and say "you're one of the good guys"/
and "you can't measure a man by his money or foot size"/
you look at me like I'm the man of the house/
nothing in life has ever made me feel this happy and proud/
this is the most important song in my life/
and you're the only one I've ever thought of calling my wife/
up and down the Highway counting the stars in the sky/
I'll protect you from the evils in the darkest of nights/
preparation for the worst, concentration on the good times/
let's learn lessons from the great misunderstood minds/
avoid repeating the mistakes of the past/
appreciating everyday because the days will go fast/
and in the blink of an eye, we'll wake up old and grey/
reminiscing together, talking about the golden days/
I can picture your smile now, just as beautiful as ever/
holding hands, slow dancing to the music that we treasure/
you and me together, it's making me shed tears/
so grateful you chose me, you gave me the best years/
the truth is I go to sleep and wake up with you in mind/
who could try to deny you and I doing fine/

-ENDING / VERSE -
Who could try
(it's you and it's me)
to deny
(my sweet beautiful V)
you and I?
 (it's making me shed tears)
I can see into your soul when I look through your eyes
Who could try
(it's you and it's me)
to deny
(my sweet beautiful V)
you and I?
 (it's making me shed tears)

Just look for me inside your heart and you will find

- HOOK -
You've given me the balance that I needed bad/
Now I believe in magic cuz I see it happen/
You make me feel like I was born to do great/
Everyday I'll appreciate you before it's too late/

I'd be too lost on my own to foster this home/
In the dark and the cold without a heart and a sou/
You make me feel like I was born to to great/
Everyday I'll appreciate you before it's too late/

...I can see into your soul when I look through your eyes
...Just look for me inside your heart and you will find
