( True story romantic love song lyrics )
ONCE I'VE GIVEN YOU MY HEART
Copyright 2006 - MickTerry.com

It took a long- time-, like all of seven days,
to really know I wanted you with me.
It was my own mind, with all its doubting ways,
that kept me from just jumping with both feet.
I don't rush to make commitments.
I don't hurry into love.
With you, I'm wond'ring what took me- so long.

    ONCE I'VE GIVEN YOU MY HEART,
    I don't really want it back.
    It's something that I gave to you to keep.
    ONCE I'VE GIVEN YOU MY HEART,
    I don't want it broken or cracked.
    I'm entrusting you to keep it safe for me.

Not love at first- sight-, I wasn't overwhelmed.
I'd often joked with beauties at the store.
But somewhere inside, I felt somewhat compelled
to ask you for your number by your door.
I don't know just who was speaking,
but I clearly heard it said,
"You'd better not let this one slip- away".

    CHORUS

        The asphalt's hot & sticky
        on the swelt'ring parking lot,
        but as we talked, I could have sworn
        I smelled the ocean breeze.
        The time spun much too quickly
        & I totally forgot
        the art I was s'posed to be selling.
        Was I selling too much of me?

It's been a long- time-. It's nearly been ten years.
That's longer than with anybody else.
We've shared the sunshine, the clouds, the laughs, the tears.
But mostly, we've had smiles above all else.
All the daisies keep on blooming
right outside our bedroom door.
By now you know, with you I'm playing for keeps.

    CHORUS

ELEMENT OF SURPRISE
SOMEBODY'S MOVING IN
HOW CAN I BE FALLING?

I DON'T WANT TO GO THERE
I'D PREFER YOU DIDN'T MISS ME

WHAT THE HELL TOOK US SO LONG?
