lyrics

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

life's been a dream
since I met you
if it's not what it seems
i don't wanna wake up

every night i hold you
close to my chest
the thump of your heart
is the absolute best

i can never bear
not sharing my bed
with the sound of your breath
next to my head

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

I'm twice the person
I used to be
every time
you are close to me

when the bough breaks
behind our back
you're my support
you pick up the slack

I don't wanna think
What I'd have to do
If you didn't have
Everything i lack

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

I've made mistakes
and I've made amends
I wanna be happy
Before this ends

every day I spend
without you here
I feel your heartbeat
In my ear

It keeps me warm
when I feel cold
It makes me younger
as I get old

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

I'm half the man
I used to fear
The half left over
Is every bit queer

I like me
Better now
I've made mistakes
And you forgive me somehow

I don't wanna think
Who I'd have to be
If you didn't have
A heart for me

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

life's been a dream
since I met you
if it's not what it seems
i don't wanna wake up

every night i hold you
close to my chest
the thump of your heart
is the absolute best

i can never bear
not sharing my bed
with the sound of your breath
next to my head

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

I'm twice the person
I used to be
every time
you are close to me

when the bough breaks
behind our back
you're my support
you pick up the slack

I don't wanna think
What I'd have to do
If you didn't have
Everything i lack

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff

I've made mistakes
and I've made amends
I wanna be happy
Before this ends

every day I spend
without you here
I feel your heartbeat
In my ear

It keeps me warm
when I feel cold
It makes me younger
as I get old
