Since I held her like a little broken flower
And watered her with my tears,
She awoke under her very own power
And chased away all the fears

It has brought me such pleasure and pain
All she needs to do is look in my eyes,
To become an island in the rain
As she breaks down and cries

And I would try to catch her from falling
So we could stand, and then run away,
Why couldn't she hear me calling
And why didn't she ever say,

That she loved me;
If only she loved me

"It has brought me such pleasure and pain
All she needs to do is look in my eyes,
To become an island in the rain
As she breaks down and cries"...

are ya trying to make me cry...this is sadly sweet...really good rhyme flow too...
still stalking you...JM



 She says baby,
It's 3am I must be lonely,
When she says baby,
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes,
Says the rains gonna wash away I believe it.
Matchbox20

I love you baby... always.*
