And Still

We’ve fallen in this place before.
I know you’ve heard me cryin'.
We torture our young hearts sometimes.
You know there’s no denyin'.

Let’s leave everything behind us
and take one step forward together.
If we follow the path of destruction we’ve made,
we’ll never find something that’s better.

There’ve been times it was best when we said nothin' at all
because every word came out so wrong.
But we can’t take it back, so just take my hand
and we’ll find out where we belong.

I won’t tell you it’s gonna be easy
but I know it will all be worthwhile.
If it’s enough for you, then it’s enough for me
just to wake up to your smile.

If you don’t know, there’s a girl that’s inside me
who’s been waitin' to be romanced.
So I’ll be right here when you know that you’re ready.
It’s about time we danced.

So if it’s up to me, I’ve already decided.
There’s too much that we’ve gotten through.
All those slammed doors, all that walkin' away
and still I come back to you.
